Great Philadelphia Comic Con Announces 2017 Guests

000-gpcc2017

Press Release:

Come and ‘Get UR Geek On!’ at the largest independently run Pop Culture Convention in PA! With over 150,000 Sq ft of show, there is something for everyone! Dozens of Artists, Vendors, Media and Cosplay Guests and Events, including: Panels Gaming Contests Door Prizes Film + TV Screening Events And Much More! Guests include:

Marina Sirtis
Born to Greek parents who did not want her to become an actress. As soon as Marina completed high school, she applied to the Guild Hall School of Music and Drama secretly. After her graduation, she worked in musical theater, repertory and television. In 1986, she moved to Los Angeles, California. For six months, she auditioned for parts but was unsuccessful. Just before she planned to go back home, she got the part of Counselor Deanna Troi in “Star Trek: The Next Generation”.

Bruce Boxleitner
As one of Hollywood’s leading men, Bruce Boxleitner has starred in a major motion picture franchise, numerous feature films, several popular television series, produced a major network film and TV series, performed on Broadway, and authored two science fiction novels.

John Wesley Shipp
John played Barry Allen aka The Flash in the CBS sci-fi adventure series “The Flash” (1990-1991), he then went on to play on the WB’s hit drama “Dawson’s Creek,” as Dawson’s dreamer dad Mitch Leery. Most recently he has returned to sci-fi by playing Henry Allen, the father of Barry Allen on the hit CW show “The Flash”.

Mike Zeck
Mike’s comics series and covers have influenced generations of artists, and one would have to argue which of Mike’s series has been the most influential, or most deeply embossed in our pop culture.

Zeck’s groundbreaking six part story “Kraven’s Last Hunt,” with J.M. Dematteis and Bob McLeod is the definitive Kraven the Hunter story and took the Spider-Man character to a whole new level, and has been touted by readers as the “Greatest Spider-Man story of all time,” in recent polls.

His work with writer Steven Grant on the Punisher Limited Series–collected as “Circle of Blood”—set the standard for the look and feel of the character and propelled the Punisher to flagship character status at Marvel. Along with air-brush artist Phil Zimelman, Mike has created some of the most recognizable painted images of the Punisher.

The 12-issue Series “Secret Wars,” was a monumental success, and Zeck’s design for Spider-Man’s black costume is still recognizable and indelible to this day. Spider-Man wore the costume temporarily, and it still lives on in the form of the super-villain, Venom.

Zeck’s work has also graced the pages and covers of “Captain America,” “Master of Kung Fu,” “Aquaman,” “Batman,” “Legends of the DC Universe,” “Green Lantern,” “G.I. Joe,” “G.I. Joe: Special Missions,” “Lobo,” “Deathstroke The Terminator,” “The Eliminator,” “Damned” and many other titles

Jim Shooter
A United States writer, occasional fill-in artist, editor, and publisher for various comic books. Shooter began selling stories to DC Comics for their Legion of Super-Heroes title when he was only 13. He eventually succeeded Archie Goodwin to become the controversial ninth editor-in-chief of Marvel Comics from 1978 to 1987.

After leaving Marvel, he fronted an effort to purchase the floundering publisher from its corporate ownership, losing out at the last minute to Ronald Perelman’s slightly higher bid. He then founded a new company, Voyager Communications, which published comics under the Valiant Comics banner.

Jim will be appearing Friday and Saturday Only!

Michael Golden
Michael Golden is an American comic book artist and writer best known for his late-1970s work on Marvel Comics’ The Micronauts, as well as his co-creation of the characters Rogue and Bucky O’Hare. His work is known to have influenced the style of artist Arthur Adams.

Ty Templeton
Ty has worked on titles for Marvel Comics, DC Comics, Bongo Comics, and Moonstone Books, including Batman Adventures, The Simpsons and many others. He also created his own graphic novel, Bigg Time, published by DC Comics’ mature readers imprint, Vertigo.

He was recently editor of an independent Canadian comic company, Mr. Comics. Recent work includes writing and drawing stories for DC’s Batman 66, based on the 1960s television series. He teaches classes in comic book writing and drawing, known as “Ty Templeton’s Comic Book Boot Camp”.

Graham Nolan
Okay, here’s the truth in a nutshell… he grew up between Long Beach, NY and Indian Harbour Beach, FL. Went 2 years to the Joe Kubert School of Cartoon and Graphic Art, couldn’t afford to graduate. Started working in advertising waiting for big break in comics.

Break came at DC Comics when one of his teachers, Sal Amendola, who was the talent coordinator there, bought two of his school assignments to run in “New Talent Showcase.”

Started picking up more assignments from DC, Marvel and Eclipse Comics eventually leading to a 6 year run illustrating Batman in “Detective Comics” and co-creating the villain, Bane. In 1998 he wrote, illustrated and self-published, “Monster Island.”

Bob Camp
Bob started his animation career as a designer for animated series such as ThunderCats, Silverhawks, TigerSharks, and several other series produced by Rankin/Bass. He then worked as a designer on The Real Ghostbusters for DiC, and later as a storyboard artist on Tiny Toon Adventures for Warner Bros. Television. He was a co-founder of and director for Spümcø, the animation studio that created The Ren & Stimpy Show.

JK Woodward
J.K. Woodward started his professional comics career in 2003 when he collaborated with A. David Lewis on the indie comic Mortal Coils. When Peter David was re-launching his creator owned series Fallen Angel at IDW, James was a natural choice for Peter’s dark world of magic, violence and redemption. His last sequential art project was the Star Trek/Doctor Who crossover, Assimilation 2 and he is currently handling the art for Harlan Ellison’s City on the Edge of Forever.

Wil Traval
Wil can currently be seen as ‘Will Simpson’ on the Netflix original series Marvel’s “Jessica Jones” and will play DC character ‘Human Target’ in the upcoming season of CW’s “Arrow” Wil is a dynamic actor who has had a successful career both in the US and in his native Australia. He has guest starred in several other series including ABC’s hit “Once Upon A Time” as Sheriff of Nottingham.

Bryce Papenbrook
Bryce Papenbrook has been a professional voice over artist since the age of eight. He was introduced to the voice acting scene by his father, Bob Papenbrook, and has continued the trade in his footsteps.

Bryce has performed in numerous video games, cartoons, and television shows.

Secret Wars Reunion Convention Tour

Press Release:

SECRETWARS-HeroesconJim Shooter, Mike Zeck, and John Beatty reunite for the first time in nearly 30 years to make a limited number of convention appearances together, as they celebrate the anniversary of the legendary Marvel Super Heroes Secret Wars maxi-series. This will be a rare opportunity to meet, greet and get autographs from all three of the original creators of one of the most important publishing events in comic book history.

Prior to the official launch of the tour, artists Mike Zeck and John Beatty will make a stop together for a special pre-tour celebration at HEROESCON: June 19-21, 2015 at the Charlotte Convention Center, Charlotte, North Carolina. Heroes Aren’t Hard To Find and HeroesCon owner Shelton Drum said “When I heard there was going to be a new Secret Wars series, I just knew I had to get Mike Zeck and John Beatty to do a variant cover for my show (pictured at right). Secret Wars #8 has always been one of my favorites, and I am in love with their new interpretation. Having them at HeroesCon is just icing on the cake“. Don’t miss the opportunity to get your copy of the 2015 SECRET WARS ISSUE #1 HEROESCON VARIANT, featuring penciller Mike Zeck, and inker John Beatty, who reunited to recreate their classic Secret Wars Issue #8 cover, replacing the original characters with their contemporary counterparts.

The formal tour begins when writer Jim Shooter, penciller Mike Zeck, and inker John Beatty reunite at FLORIDA SUPERCON: June 25-28, 2015 at The Miami Beach Convention Center, in Miami, Florida. Florida Supercon owner Mike Broder said “I’m thrilled to have Florida Supercon as the formal launch point for this reunion tour! Secret Wars was such a groundbreaking concept thirty years ago, and helped fundamentally change how comic books approach big events, marketing, licensing, etc.. Plus, it couldn’t be more relevant than today, just as the new Secret Wars series from Marvel Comics hits the shelves. It really is an honor and privilege to play host to these three legendary creators.”

The second stop will be KANSAS CITY COMIC CON: August 7-9, 2015 at the Kansas City Convention Center in Kansas City, Missouri. Matt Driscoll, owner of the convention said of the tour “Secret Wars is a milestone that has influenced writers and artists ever since its publication in 1985. We are proud to have the creative team of Jim Shooter, Mike Zeck, and John Beatty join us at Kansas City Comic Con to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the most iconic series in Marvel history”

The tour will then continue at the CONNECTICUT COMICONN: August 14-16, 2015 at the Mohegan Sun Convention Center, Uncasville, Connecticut. Connecticut ComiConn producer Mitchell Hallock stated “Having all three of the Secret Wars creators with us … Jim Shooter, Mike Zeck and John Beatty … together at the Mohegan Sun this August for the con is a dream come true. I’m sure fans will come from miles around to say hello, shake their hands, get an autograph or three and say “thank you for making one of the greatest comic book stories ever!”

There are at least three additional tour stops planned, which will be announced shortly. More events may be added down the line as well. Please visit the creators own websites www.mikezeck.com or www.johnbeattyart.com for additional shows at which they will appear.

Mike Zeck, legendary Bronze Age penciler and creator of Spider-Man’s black costume, said of the tour … “We’re putting the band back together!” Looking forward to this reunion with Jim Shooter and John Beatty to celebrate the original Secret Wars series and hail the arrival of the new Secret Wars. It’s been very gratifying to see our original series maintain its popularity and remain in print for the past 30 years. A rare success! Hope to see you at one of our dates”

John Beatty, inker extraordinaire, stated “The big picture of Secret Wars is the fans. Having fans tell me through the years over and over that this series either brought them back to reading comic books, or started them reading comic books. I never dreamed, or could have at the time, that Secret Wars with Mike Zeck and Jim Shooter would have kept its appeal for three decades. Being able to share in the history of this series with both Jim and Mike is a bit surrealistic in many ways. It’s a huge blessing that we are still able to get together 30 years later and show our appreciation for the fans who made the series the success it has been and hopefully will continue to be. Thank you all!”

Jim Shooter, legendary writer, artist, editor, and publisher said of the tour “Secret Wars turned out to be a watershed in the history of the medium. I’m glad I was part of it and I am very, very happy to get together again with brilliant artists Mike Zeck and John Beatty.”

Don’t miss this once in 30 years opportunity to get your comics signed by all of the creators who made it happen so many years ago … Jim Shooter, Mike Zeck, and John Beatty.
