Best known for his landmark series Danger Girl, where he served as both creator and artist, Scott has also created a huge fan-base over the years from his work on such titles as Gen 13, Spider-Man, Wildsiderz and most recently his very first pin-up calendar FairyTale Fantasies, featuring his very recognizable, sexy and playful girly art. An all around talent, Campbell has also dabbled in the fields of film design, video games, toys, animation, commercial art, and self publishing. His current projects include upcoming interiors on Spider-Man in addition to many high profile covers for Marvel Comics.

CHRIS CLAREMONT: Writer Chris Claremont’s stories have achieved best-seller status, won numerous awards, and are trend-setters for the industry. Although best known for his work on Marvel Comic’s X-Men series, he has written other seminal characters such as Batman and Superman; originated several creator-owned series; is published throughout the world in many different languages; authored nine novels; and has had his first video game premier in Spring 2006. In total, Chris has sold approximately 500,000,000 comics, world wide. Chris is also known for his progressive treatment of women in a genre that oftentimes relies on stereotype. Active, intelligent, courageous women characters such as Jean Grey, Kitty Pryde, and Storm have made Chris’s X-Men as popular with women readers as men. The Summer of 2000 saw the release of the feature film, X-Men, based largely on material created by Chris. The sequel, X-2, contains characters and key story elements from Chris’s best-selling graphic novel, God Loves, Man Kills. X-Men: The Last Stand, released in May 2006, is grounded in the Dark Phoenix saga. The forthcoming second Wolverine movie is based largely on the graphic novel, Wolverine, by Chris and Frank Miller.

GEOF DARROW: Geof Darrow was born in Cedar Rapids, Iowa and studied drawing at the Chicago Acadamy of Fine Arts and Hanna-Barbera School of Frustration.

DeFalco has recently worked on Star Wars: The Clone Wars for Titan Comics, The Man From RIVERDALE for Archie Comics, Flash Gordon for Ardden Entertainment, The Flying Fool for Moonstone Books and, of course, The Spectacular Spider-Girl for Marvel Comics. He is currently writing a new Thunderstrike limited series with co-creator Ron Frenz.
LEO LEIBELMAN: Leo Leibelman went to the HS of Music and Art and took a How to Draw Comic Books class under Carlos Infantino. Those classes paid off because a few years later in 1994 he began working for Marvel Comics on Savage Sword of Conan. From there, Leo worked for Acclaim Comics on Turok: Dinosaur Hunter and Majick: the Gathering and Topps on Hercules. Leo eventually moved to the Great White North and found himself in the film industry while still keeping his hand in the comics business.

He began his comics career at Malibu Comics and enjoyed immediate success but continued to lead a dual life as firefighter by day and artist by night– for more than sixteen years, in fact!

Recent and current projects at Marvel Comics, and DC Comics include working with industry legends Louise Simonson and Chris Claremont on the titles Magik and Exiles, the Marvel Adventures line featuring Fantastic Four, Avengers, and the Hulk, work on She-Hulk, and a Kyle XY one shot for Disney/ABC with writer Jeff Parker.
LENIEL FRANCIS YU: Leinil Yu’s first interest in Comics was sparked by a copy of How to Draw Comics the Marvel Way when he was 11. It was later reinforced by positive responses from talent scouts from Wildstorn/Homage and Darkhorse, published fan art in Wizard Magazine and first professional work on Entity Comics’ Aster. The major break was Whilce Portacio’s tutelage where the training landed him his first mainstream comics gig: Wolverine in 1997.

Double Trouble at Planet ComiCon!
Michael Golden and Steve Scott Debut New Books at the show!
Kansas City– Finally, the long-awaited and much anticipated, second in a series sketchbook, from artist/creator MICHAEL GOLDEN is NOW available! “Michael Golden: MORE Heroes &Villains,” is in the house! And Planet ComiCon, being one of Michael’s favorite shows, will be one of the first places where this book is offered!
Now for some bad news….somehow 420 of this already limited volume have disappeared somewhere between the printer in Hong Kong and our warehouse in New England–less than 600 available worldwide!
A follow up to the popular “Heroes & Villains,” sketchbook of last year, this new volume is a must have for collectors of Golden’s awesome storytelling and spot on illustration. Co-creator of Rogue from the X-Men, Bucky O’Hare, Spartan X, and illustrator on “Dr. Strange,” “The ‘Nam,” “G.I. Joe,” “Avengers,” “Marvel Fanfare,” and much, much more, none of Michael’s art in this new book appears in any other art book or sketchbook on the market!
The volume itself is album sized, full color, and 48 pages in length, and features many of Golden’s sketches from the 2009 season and some old favorites as well.
MORE good news for you fortunate few: If you do snag one of these books, it will be even more collectible. Be sure to get your order in now, or catch us at PlanetComiCon! Be One of the 600!
Comic artist STEVE SCOTT is debuting his new 32 page sketchbook as well, “Steve Scott Sketches,” at PlanetComiCon to celebrate his first time appearing at the show! The book is limited to 1,000 copies, and comes in either signed editions or original sketch editions.
Steve’s work can currently be seen on the upcoming “X-Men Forever” series with writer Chris Claremont. Not to mention that Steve is also the ONLY artist tapped by DC Comics to do any work relating to “Batman Forever,” depicting the now legendary turn of Heath Ledger as The Joker. Look for Steve’s work in the Blue-Ray disc release of the movie!
Steve is indeed certainly no stranger to media tie-in’s. His work has also often been seen on the television show Smallville and in other special projects for DC Comics. As well as doing some darn good likenessess for the recent “Indiana Jones–Tomb of the Gods,” comic book series for Dark Horse to tie-in with the recent Harrison Ford movie! In fact, George Lucas liked Steve’s work so much that he purchased most of the originals to keep for himself!
Recently returned from a signing tour in Belgium, France and the Netherlands, and Spain look for more of Steve’s work on “X-Men Forever,” “Green Lantern,” as well as some surprises to be announced soon!
Other guests joining Michael Golden and Steve Scott at PCC include: Lou Ferrigno, Mira Furlan, Helen Slater, Jane Wiedlin, Talent Caldwell, Tommy Castillo, Dave Dorman, Gary Friedrich, Phil Hester, Greg Horn, Joe Jusko, B.

Steve Scott Sketch Cards on Ebay–
Avatar Theme Entices Penciler for the Limited Run.
Atlanta– Steve Scott has just consented to provide a limited run of sketch cards to comemorate the astounding success of the runaway blockbuster, “Avatar.” A renowned comic book professional, Scott is known for his work on “Razor” for London Knights, Indiana Jones for Dark Horse, X-Men for Marvel and most recently an exclusive Green Lantern special project for DC Comics. His work has been featured in numerous gallery shows from Manhattan to Brussels, while conducting art classes and appearing in places as diverse as The Netherlands, Paris and Gijon, Spain. If you are a fan of the hit television show, “Smallville,” you no doubt have also seen Steve’s sequential work used in that show’s production. In addition, Steve has the distinction of having his work owned by numerous discerning collectors worldwide, the least of which is not director George Lucas himself!
Other titles which Steve has had the pleasure of penciling include: “New Warriors,” “Hourman,” and “JLA” just to name a few. In addition, Steve was the only artist tapped by DC to do any work for the “Batman Dark Knight” movie featuring the now legendary Joker turn by Hearth Ledger. Steve’s work and rendition of this actor as the Joker can be found in the exclusive blue-ray package of the hit movie!
With a resume like that, one wouldn’t think that up until recently, Steve led a duel life as firefighter by day and artist by night– for more than sixteen years, in fact! Even then, it took one horrible event to bring those two identities together. On September 11, 2001, he watched, with the rest of the nation as the Twin Towers fell. Soon afterwards, DC Comics published “The Worlds Finest Comic Book Writers & Artists Tell Stories to Remember.” Steve was selected among the few to contribute to this historical collection, which was later exhibited, and is now archived, at the Library of Congress. Something he is truly proud to be part of.
Scott has since relocated to the renowned community of artist in Atlanta, Georgia, encouraged to pick up the pencil full time by his contemporaries. And with great effect! Immediately, since, Steve’s work has appeared in the pages of DC Comics “Shadowpact,” “The Creeper,” and “Checkmate.” He got a particularly special kick out of bringing to life some of DC Comics strangest characters like Detective Chimp, Rex the Wonder Dog, Rag Man, The Phantom Stranger, and many others.
Recent and current projects at Marvel Comics, and DC Comics include working with industry legends Louise Simonson and Chris Claremont on the titles “Magik” and “Exiles.” As well as titles in the successful Marvel Adventures line including: Fantastic Four, Avengers, and the Hulk. In addition to this ever growing list of published comics, cards, and other related illustrations, Steve also penciled “Kyle XY” for Disney/ABC with writer Jeff Parker.
Although some of Steve’s sequential art pages are available on the comic art market, this is the first time that Steve has consented to provide a limited run edition of select sketch cards for fans of his work and sketch card collectors. To celebrate this limited time event, several of these sketch cards are now available on e-bay and available from Eva Ink Artist Group (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Don’t miss this opportunity to own these exclusive cards by this renowned artist, while supplies last. The ebay auctions below end of February 14th, so check ‘em out now!
