Rafer Roberts, Gail Simone, and Matt Wilson Come to Baltimore Comic-Con 2014

Press Release:

Rafer Roberts, Gail Simone, and Matt Wilson Come to the Baltimore Comic-Con!

BALTIMORE, MARYLAND – August 27, 2014 – In its 14th year, the Baltimore Comic-Con returns to Baltimore’s Inner Harbor Friday, September 5th through Sunday, September 7th at the Baltimore Convention Center! You thought we couldn’t squeeze a few more guests into our already-packed room? Think again! We’re welcoming Rafer Roberts, Gail Simone, and Matthew Wilson too!

Rafer Roberts first made a name for himself with his self-published, underground title Plastic Farm, published since 2001. More recently, he has found increasing mainstream exposure, with stories in the Dark Horse anthology, the Harvey-nominated Once Upon a Time Machine, the New York Times best-selling FUBAR anthology from FUBAR Press, and back-up stories in Valiant’s X-O Manowar, Harbinger, Archer & Armstrong, and a future issue of Unity. More of his work will see print in IDW’s Imaginary Drugs and Locust Moon’s Little Nemo: Dream Another Dream anthologies.

Gail Simone is a critically acclaimed, fan-favorite writer of comic books and animation. She has written classic runs on such titles as Batgirl, Birds of Prey, Deadpool, Secret Six, and Action Comics. Her creator-owned graphic novel, Leaving Megalopolis, created with co-creator and artist Jim Calafiore, was the highest funded straight comics project in Kickstarter history. She has written animation for Wonder Woman, Tomb Raider, Brave and the Bold, and Justice League United, and is currently working on the comics Tomb Raider, Red Sonja, and several creator-owned projects. In addition to appearing at the Dynamite Entertainment booth over the weekend, Simone will serve as Keynote Speaker at this year’s Harvey Awards on Saturday, September 6th.

Matthew Wilson is an art school graduate with a degree in Sequential Art. His color palettes have graced the pages of numerous books from multiple publishers, including DC Comics Swamp Thing, Wonder Woman, and Batman ’66, Marvel Comics’ Secret Avengers, Uncanny X-Force, Moon Knight, and Young Avengers, Dark Horse’s Terminator Salvation: The Final Battle, The Guild: Fawkes, and Deep Gravity, Image’s The Wicked + The Divine, Suburban Glamour, and Phonogram: The Singles Club, BOOM! Studios’ Snarked, Pale Horse, and The Rinse, and many, many others.

“We’d already announced Gail with the Harveys, but not specifically as a guest,” said Marc Nathan, promoter of the Baltimore Comic-Con. “And now, to add Rafer and Matt to the list, we’re really bringing an amazing set of talent to the fans this year!”

The Baltimore Comic-Con will be held Friday, September 5 through Sunday, September 7, 2014, at the Baltimore Convention Center, which is located immediately across the street from the historic Camden Yards sports complex (which includes Oriole Park and Geppi’s Entertainment Museum). Tickets, a full guest roster, and additional information is available on the convention’s website.
