Dark Horse Announces Exclusive Emerald City Comicon 2014 Variants

Press Release:

Dark Horse Announces Exclusive Emerald City Comicon Variants!

MILWAUKIE, OR, MARCH 13—As the pop culture world gears up for Seattle’s Emerald City Comicon, Dark Horse announces not one, not two, not even three, but four variant covers for this year’s show!

The first few months of 2014 will see some of Dark Horse’s biggest launches of the year, and we have chosen to celebrate with Emerald City variants for Serenity #1, Buffy #1, Veil #1, and a very special variant of Witcher #1.

First up is Veil, the much-talked-about new, original series by Greg Rucka and Toni Fejzula. For this year’s show, Dark Horse has tapped J. H. Williams III to create the variant cover. Limited to 500 copies, Veil #1 is sure to go quickly, especially with writer Greg Rucka in attendance!

Next, we have the hotly anticipated Season 10 premiere of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, with a variant cover by Season 9 cover artist Phil Noto, limited to 1,000 copies. Look for interior artist Rebekah Isaacs at this year’s show!

Another one for Joss Whedon fans: Dark Horse brings Jenny Frison on for a special cover of Serenity: Leaves on the Wind #1, featuring none other than the lovely Inara! A few lucky fans may even get actress Morena Baccarin herself to sign their copies!

Last, and certainly not least, legendary artist Stan Sakai has done a special cover of the upcoming tie-in series The Witcher, a canonical entry in the world of the Witcher video games, which have collectively won over 250 awards and sold more than 5.5 million copies worldwide! All proceeds from the sale of this limited edition variant will benefit Stan and Sharon Sakai. Stan will be attending the show, in celebration of the thirtieth anniversary of his landmark series, Usagi Yojimbo!

Each variant-cover issue will cost five dollars and will be limited to ten copies per person, per day! A set quantity will be available at the show opening each day.

Hope to see you at this year’s Emerald City Comicon in Seattle, WA, on March 28–30!

NM – Full Disclosure/Perfect Machine

pn_sf14

Press Release:

Stranger Factory is thrilled to present two new exhibits for February from artists Phil Noto and Jim Mahfood.

Phil Noto’s “Full Disclosure” finds Noto’s signature style in top form, as the artist deftly brings beautiful new characters to life. Few artists are able to capture the subtleties of Full Disclosureuman expressions like Noto, and it’s impossible to look at his works without being drawn in immediately. Beautiful understatement is the name of the game with Noto’s work, from a slightly raised eyebrow to the tiniest of smirks. We are huge fans of Noto’s paintings, and thrilled to be able to present another solo show by this modern master.

In the Project Room we have the frenetic illustration style of Jim Mahfood. His new exhibit, “Perfect Machine”, brings to Stranger Factory an exploration of sense and sensuality couched in his trademark chaotic style…heaps of black ink seem to explode within and around his subjects as they struggle for a handhold in an unsure world. Mahfood’s illustration style is dense and rich, and carries an intense load of sex, comedy, and violence.

jm_sf14

Please contact our Press Manager with any additional requests for artist information or show images.

Both exhibits run February 7th – March 2nd, with an opening reception on Friday, February 7th from 6 – 9 PM.

NYC – 35mm Art Exhibition

Phil Noto opens a new solo exhibit titled “35mm” at Bold Hype Gallery on Thursday, October 18, 2012 from 6PM – 9PM.

Free Admission. Open to the public

RSVP on Facebook!

Born in 1971, Phil Noto grew up in Florida and attended the Ringling School of Art and Design. After college he began a career in animation at Walt Disney Feature Animation. During his 10 year career at Disney he worked on such films as The Lion King, Pocahontas, Hunchback of Notre Dame, Mulan, and Lilo and Stitch. In 2001, Phil started his comic career as the cover artist for DC Comics’ Birds of Prey. Since then he has worked on numerous comic projects such as Beautiful Killer, Danger Girl, Jonah Hex, Superman/Supergirl : Maelstrom, Batgirl, Avengers, Wolverine/Jubilee and the Eisner Award-nominated, Infinite Horizon. While working in the comics field, he has also done art for magazines, video games, advertising and movies.

Phil is heavily influenced by 60′s and 70′s art and fashion. Sleek female figures, text, and retro design elements are a trademark of his paintings. He has had 4 solo exhibitions and has been a part of numerous group shows. His two art books, Jet Seven and Trans Am Champions (Brandstudio Press) sold out quickly and are highly sought after by collectors. Phil currently resides in Washington with his wife, Beth and their 2 children, Kate and Fletcher.
