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.”
With September’s relaunch of 52 titles from DC Comics, the Baltimore Comic-Con is happy to announce the addition of three creators heading up those titles – Scott Snyder, Paul Levitz, and Ron Marz - to the line-up for this year’s show.
Scott Snyder, who will be writing DC’s Batman and Swamp Thing, made a huge impact on the comic industry of the last year with his work on the New York Times bestselling series, American Vampire and his critically-acclaimed run on Detective Comics. Snyder is currently writing the Flashpoint tie-in miniseries, Project Superman. Snyder has been nominated for two Harvey Award this year in the categories of Best New Series and Most Promising New Talent for his work on American Vampire.
Paul Levitz, who will continue his run as writer on Legion of Super-Heroes in September, is a mainstay in the comic industry. For over 35 years, Levitz has served as a writer, editor, and executive at DC Comics. His work on the Legion throughout the late-’70s and ’80s is widely-regarded as some of the most quintessential stories in the DCU. In addition to writing Legion, it has just been announced that Levitz will be writing the 6-issue mini-series, The Huntress, beginning in October. This year, he received a Harvey Award nomination in the category of Best Biographical, Historical or Journalistic Presentation for his work on 75 Years of DC Comics: The Art of Modern Myth-Making.
Ron Marz, who will usher Wildstorm’s Voodoo into the DCU in September, has been writing comics professionally since the early-’90s, having worked for such companies as Marvel, Dark Horse, CrossGen, Devil’s Due, Valiant, and DC. Well-known as one the creators who helped to revitalize both the Green Lantern franchise in the late-’90s and Top Cow’s Witchblade in 2004, Marz is currently working on the Top Cow series, Artifacts.
“DC’s announcement about the relaunch of their entire super-hero line rocked the comic industry and will redefined their characters for years to come,” said Marc Nathan, show promoter of the Baltimore Comic-Con. “We’re so excited to have some of the A-crop creators behind this momentous move join us for this year’s show!”

Adrienne Barbeau, the beloved ’80s icon and horror actress (The Fog, Swamp Thing), skewers Hollywood and vamp lit alike in Love Bites, her follow-up to the acclaimed Vampyres of Hollywood.
Thursday, December 9th @ 7pm
Powell’s Books at Cedar Hills Crossing
3415 SW Cedar Hills Blvd, Portland, OR
Adrienne Barbeau discusses and signs Love Bites (Vampires of Hollywood) on December 3rd at 7:00 PM.
With her customary wit and dead-on satire, Barbeau skewers Hollywood and vamp lit alike, casting the paparazzi as werewolves and certain Hollywood “monsters” as the genuine article… Ovsanna Moore is a Hollywood siren, horror film legend, and cut throat producer. She also happens to be a 450-year-old vampyre. In the follow-up to the much acclaimed Vampyres of Hollywood, Adrienne Barbeau paints a wonderfully sly portrait of cinematic vampyres, as well as the nature of celebrity, and the entertainment industry. Her “Scream Queen” credentials make her the only author who could combine such a fastpaced, edgy plot with tongue-in-cheek references to the inner workings and vanity of Hollywood. A whirlwind of action, Love Bites is a clever take on vampyres readers will never forget.
