Steve Scott Joins the Adventure in Pigeon Forge!
Tennessee–Artist Steve Scott, know for his recent work on Marvel’s X-Men characters, and freshly back from a gala presentation with Michael Golden and Russ Heath in Gijon, Spain, is now packing up his gear to join the Adventure at the first annual “The Grand AdventureCon” in Pigeon Forge!

Live from the Grand Resort Hotel and Convention Center, October 24th and 25th, Steve will be on hand to sketch and sign for both days of the show. And will also be bringing some surprises to the table in honor of Adventurecon’s blood drive and charity events! Details to be revealed soon!

Steve is a perfect choice to be involved in the “magic” (that’s a hint)! Steve’s work has spanned art for the hit TV show Smallville to his first sequential print illustrations at Malibu comics, and his wildly popular stint on Razor for London Night, as well as New Warriors, Hourman, and JLA for Marvel and DC Comics.

Balancing two careers for a time, after 16 years of service as a firefighter, Steve decided to pursue his love of sequential art full-time after Hurricane Katrina, and recently relocated to the renowned community of artist in Atlanta, Georgia. There, encouraged to pick up the pencil full time by his contemporaries, Steve’s work began to appear in the pages of DC Comics Shadowpact, the Creeper, Batman Legends of the Dark Knight, 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, Creeper and many others.)

Recent and current projects include working with industry legends Louise Simonson and Chris Claremont on the titles Magik and Exiles, Fantastic Four, Avengers, and the Hulk. “Indiana Jones: Tomb of the Gods, with inker Nathan Massengill, Marvel Adventures Hulk, and X-Men Forever with Claremont.

Other talent joining Steve at AdventureCon in Pigeon Forge include: Joe Staton,Tom Nguyen, Tom Feister, Scott Blair, Richard Green, Kevin Leen, Brett Pinson, along with media personalities Daeg Faerch, William Forsythe, John Schneider, Jason Mewes, Derek Mears, Doug Jones, Micky Dolenz, and many more.

Press Release:

Michael Golden and Steve Scott Cover AdventureCon
Provide Images for FREE Limited Prints!

Knoxville–AdventureCon marks the “X” on the map for intrepid treasure seekers this weekend as artists Michael Golden and Steve Scott add some gems to the hunt with two special prints produced just for the convention.

Tennessee’s largest pop culture and collector show, AdventureCon is offering these two 5.5x 8.5 prints exclusively for attendees, and for FREE during a special signing with Golden and Scott!

Michael Golden is pretty much a household name if you know comics and sequential art, with past work on “The ‘Nam,” “Bucky O’Hare” and “The Micronauts” still garnering accolades, while recent work on “X-Men” and Hulk at Marvel continue to draw notice! His recent artbook, “Excess: The Art of Michael Golden,” from Vanguard Productions also sold out this year, going into a second printing! Golden is also the focus of a new DVD from Woodcrest Productions/Eva Ink entitled “Creator Chronicles: Michael Golden,” featuring over six hours of material on the creator responsible for Co-creating Rogue, Bucky O’Hare and Spartan X. Look for his work on the G.I. Joe redux coming soon as well, just in time for the movie!

Steve Scott is known to his fans for his popular work on “Razor,” “Indiana Jones,” and “JLA,” and has the distinction of being the only artist tapped to do any work related to “Batman Dark Knight.” Steve’s comic work appears in the DVD of the movie currently in release. In addition, you can see Steve’s recent work on the upcoming “X-Men Forever” with writer Chris Claremont. Recently returned from a European Tour, Steve is slated for more appearances both internationally and domestically.
