Awesome Artists Added to Baltimore Comic-Con 2011

Press Release:

The Baltimore Comic-Con is happy to announce the addition of Adam Hughes, Tony Harris, Josh Middleton, and Francesco Francavilla to the line-up of creators appearing at this year’s show. The show will be taking place the weekend of August 20-21, 2011 at the Baltimore Convention Center.

As far as cover artists working in comics today, Adam Hughes is among the very best. A 12-year veteran of Gaijin Studios, Hughes is most widely recognized for his pin-up style renditions of female characters, especially over the course of his long runs as cover artist on Wonder Woman and Catwoman. His most recent work includes a 2-page spread featuring Supergirl and Batgirl for Superman/Batman #75 in 2010 and covers for Zatanna (#13-16) in 2011, and he will be providing covers for DC’s relaunch of Batgirl which begins in September. Hughes won the Harvey Award for Best Cover Artist in 2001, 2002, and 2003.

Breaking into comics in 1989, Tony Harris made a name for himself as the artist and co-creator of DC Comics’ Starman. Also a member of Gaijin Studios, Harris left the Atlanta-based collective to form Jolly Roger Studios. His recent work includes wrapping up a 50-issue run on Vertigo’s Ex Machina in 2010 and he is currently working on a project called The Further Adventures of the Whistling Skull.

Josh Middleton broke into the comics industry in 2000 with his work on one of CrossGen’s original fours series, Meridian, where he penciled the first six-issue story arc. In 2003, after contributing to Marvel’s X-Men Unlimited series, Middleton signed an exclusive with the publisher and helped create the series NYX along with Joe Quesada. Moving on to DC Comics, he served as artist for the mini-series Superman/Shazam: First Thunder, and provided cover art for Vertigo’s American Virgin and DC’s Supergirl. Middleton’s most recent work includes art direction for Warner Brothers Animation’s Green Lantern: The Animated Series.

Francesco Francavilla, who is currently wrapping up his run on Detective Comics, will be working alongside Scott Snyder on the upcoming Swamp Thing title (one of DC Comics’ “New 52″) starting this September. In additon, Francavilla is also the artist on Marvel’s Black Panther: The Man Without Fear and is working on several short stories/anthologies at Archaia Entertainment.

“We are all very excited to add these four artist to the growing list of creators attending this year’s Con,” said Marc Nathan, show promotor of the Baltimore Comic-Con. “These guys helped to shape the look and feel of many modern comics and redefined those characters for a new audience.”
