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.
After 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.
Joining 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.
The 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!”
