Joe Hill & IDW Publishing Appear at Baltimore Comic-Con 2013

lk_bcc13

Press Release:

The Baltimore Comic-Con is excited to announce the addition of comic writer and novelist, Joe Hill, courtesy of IDW Publishing, to the growing list of creators for this year’s show. In addition, IDW will also be exhibiting at the show and hosting a panel as well!

Joe Hill published his first book, a collection of short stories entitled 20th Century Ghosts, in 2005 and followed that up in 2007 with Heart-Shaped Box, his first full-length novel. But Hill is best known among comic fans for his work on IDW’s groundbreaking horror series, Locke & Key, which launched in 2008. The book, which is a series of mini-series, is coming to an end with October’s Alpha #2, and has been optioned for film by Universal Studios.

In addition to Locke & Key, Hill is also the author of the Kodiak, The Cape, The Cape: 1969, Wraith: Welcome to Christmasland, and Thumbprint from IDW. He received an Eisner Award in 2011 for Best Writer (Locke & Key) and is nominated for a Harvey Award this year for Best Writer (also Locke & Key).

IDW Publishing was founded in 1999 and has since grown to become one of the top comic book publishers in the United States. Their catalog of books include such licensed properties as G.I. Joe, Transformers, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Doctor Who, Judge Dredd, The Crow, My Little Pony, Star Trek, and The X-Files, as well as original comic series such as 30 Days of Night, Locke & Key, Kill Shakespeare, Fever Ridge: The Tale of McArthur’s Jungle War, and Jinrise.

“We couldn’t be happier to have Joe and IDW attending the show and the Harvey Awards this year,” said Marc Nathan, show promoter of the Baltimore Comic-Con. “Joe’s contribution to the horror genre in comics and in literature has left a lasting effect on both mediums, and IDW has continued to publish some of the best work in comics month-in and month-out for nearly 15 years! This is going to be such a treat for all the fans attending this year’s show!”

Joe Hill and IDW Publishing join our previously announced guests, including: Josh Adams (Doctor Who); Neal Adams (First X-Men); Brian Bolland (Dial H); Mark Buckingham (Fables); Jimmy Cheung (Avengers vs. X-Men); Frank Cho (Savage Wolverine); Amanda Conner (Before Watchmen: Silk Spectre); J.M.

In addition to the Locke & Key gang, writer Jason Ciaramella (The Cape, Thumbprint) and Hill’s newest collaborator Charles Paul Wilson III (Wraith: Welcome To Christmasland) will also be present for two huge signings with all these amazing creators in one place! The first signing will be held on Saturday from 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm and the next, Sunday from 3:15pm – 4:30pm. To help celebrate the tremendous signing C.P. Wilson III will be bringing some menacing prints with him from the new series Wraith: Welcome To Christmasland!
