    Press Release:

    Baltimore Comic-Con Announces Banner List of All-Star Artists!

    Capullo, Finch, Prado, and Reis Join the 3 Day Party!

    BALTIMORE, MARYLAND – February 10, 2014 – Year after year, the staff at the Baltimore Comic-Con strives to make our show bigger and better, and our 15th annual event will be no different. The premiere 3-day gala occurs the weekend of September 5-7, 2014!

    Our announced guests today are noteworthy for their artistic contributions to the industry, and specifically their recent work at DC Comics.

    BatmanAfter some initial success at small-press publisher FantaCo, Greg Capullo landed work in the 1990s at Marvel Comics on titles such as Quasar, What If..?, and X-Force. Todd MacFarlane approached Capullo to do work for him at Image Comics on MacFarlane’s Spawn, which led to a run on the title, spin-offs, and other notable titles under the Image umbrella including Haunt and Capullo’s The Creech. DC Comics wooed Capullo to take over art duties on Batman during their New 52 relaunch, a run that went on to earn great accolades.

    Dark KnightJoining us from Canada, David Finch received recognition for his early work at Top Cow Productions on titles such as Cyberforce, Ascension, and Aphrodite IX. He then went on to spend a number of years at Marvel Comics, working on blockbuster titles including Ultimate X-Men, Avengers (and the relaunched New Avengers), and Moon Knight before jumping into an exclusive contract with DC Comics in 2010 where he flexed his writing muscles as well as his drawing skills on Batman: The Dark Knight. He is currently working on DC’s Forever Evil.

    Justice League of AmericaThe Brazilian team of Ivan Reis and Joe Prado will also return to the Baltimore Comic-Con in 2014! Reis began his career at Dark Horse with a long run on Ghost and follow-up work on The Mask, Time Cop, and Xena. He has worked on Marvel titles like Avengers, Iron Man, and Defenders, and at DC on Action Comics, Teen Titans, and Superman. Prado’s line work has graced the pages and covers of DC Comics’ Superman, Teen Titans, Birds of Prey, and Rann/Thanagar War. Together, they are currently working on Justice League and Aquaman and The Others, also from DC Comics.

    “We love what these gentlemen have brought to the DC Comics Universe, and comics art in general,” commented Marc Nathan, promoter of the Baltimore Comic-Con. “It is an absolute pleasure to welcome them back, and we know our fans will be thrilled to hear they’ll be joining us again!”

    Big Guests, Big Vendors and a Big Film Make the 2013 ANS Sci-Fi and Comic Con a Big Deal

    ANS Sci Fi and Comic Con

    Press Release:

    Big Guests, Big Vendors and A Big Film Make the Second ANS Sci-Fi & Comic Con a BIG DEAL!

    Preparations are in full swing for the May 11 benefit event showcasing Archbishop Neale School in La Plata.

    “Our headlining special guest is the unmistakable Frank Cho,” says event organizer Tom Boone. “This is Frank’s only scheduled convention appearance in the DC area for the rest of the year!” This May, Marvel Comics will be wrapping up a well-received six issue series written and drawn by Mr. Cho called ‘Savage Wolverine’, based on the X-Men hero. More than 20 other comic artists and writers will be attending as well as artists from other disciplines including digital media, sculpting, pyrography and photography.

    In addition to artists, more than 20 vendors covering over 80 tables will be selling a wide array of comics, cards, sci-fi, pop culture and entertainment collectibles. “We’re very proud that nearly all of our vendors from our 2012 show have returned and we’ve attracted even more this year,” says Boone. Among them are Cards, Comics and Collectibles, a retail store in Reisterstown and Third Eye Comics, a retailer with stores in Prince Frederick and Annapolis. “We have vendors coming from as far away as Pennsylvania. We’ve cast the net wide to try to get as many unique vendors as possible for our attendees.” Local retailers such as Comics MD and BookNuts Book Shop will also have a presence at the show.

    Another first for the event is the screening of films. New York based filmmaker Brian Stillman will be attending the ANS Sci-Fi & Comic Con to present previously unseen clips from his upcoming film, ‘Plastic Galaxy – The Story of Star Wars Toys’. According to Boone, “It’s an incredible documentary that toy collectors and Star Wars fans will love.” Other works include student films from the DAVE School in Orlando, FL, and rare films that have never been commercially released.

    Panels and presentations, a staple of comic conventions, will also be a part of this year’s charity event. “How to Make Your Own Comic” will be a panel discussion with artists and creators lead by Chris Rizzo, Creative Director of New York based multimedia group Dark Ink Pictures. The panel will discuss topics such as breaking into comics and writing techniques. “The DIY ethic is strong in comics today. The internet and indie publishing are breaking down barriers and providing young creators with opportunities that were unthinkable as little as ten years ago,” says Boone.

    Popular at conventions around the world is the 501st Legion, a Star Wars-inspired costuming group whose local unit, the Old Line Garrison, will be returning to the ANS Sci-Fi & Comic Con in greater numbers this year. The stormtroopers will be entertaining fans of all ages with a charity putt-putt game and plenty of photo opportunities throughout the event. Also returning are the Viking Re-enactors from Southern Maryland’s own Longship Company, with authentic costumes and equipment.

    Another highlight of the ANS Sci-Fi & Comic Con is the Silent Auction. “Every penny from admissions, the vendor’s fees and the silent auction goes directly to the operating budget of Archbishop Neale School.” To that end, an impressive array of unique and one-of a-kind collectibles have been gathered for the auction from attending artists including Mike O’Shields and Laura Inglis, to major industry names like John Byrne, Doug Chiang and James Arnold Taylor, and authors Troy Denning and Lemony Snicket.

    “All this is just the tip of the iceberg,” says Boone. “We’re screening more films and we’ll have more artists and more presentations. We’re using more space inside the school than ever. We have more food vendors this year, more prizes, more of everything fans go to conventions for. We encourage all of our attendees to make plans to stay for a while!”

    The Second Annual ANS Sci-Fi & Comic Con is happening May 11, 2013, from 10am to 3pm at Archbishop Neale School in La Plata, Maryland. Admission is $5 for adults, kids under ten are free. For more information, visit www.anscomiccon.com
