About Sean Murphy:
Sean Murphy was born in Nashua, NH in the fall of 1980. He got interested in comics in grade school and spent many afternoons of his childhood drawing instead of making friends. His formal education started in Salem, NH as an apprentice to Leslie Swank, local painter, cartoonist and WWII vet. After graduating Pinkerton Academy high school in 1999 he attended Massachusetts College of Art (Boston) and then the Savannah College of Art and Design.

Before graduation, Sean was already working with such publishers as Dark Horse on their Star Wars titles. After getting his BFA, he moved out to Hollywood to pursue concept art for video games and film making while paying the bills with additional titles like Star Trek, Teen Titans, and Batman/Scarecrow: Year One.

His first creator owned book “Off Road” was released by Oni in 2005 and won an American Library Association award. Soon after, Sean signed an exclusive contract with DC Comics and moved to New York. His DC published work is what he’s most known for currently–Hellblazer: City of Angels, Joe the Barbarian, and American Vampire: Survival of the Fittest helped boost his career greatly. His latest book for DC/Vertigo, and creator owned mini series called Punk Rock Jesus, in stores now.

Sean lives in Brooklyn with his wife Colleen, and their two dogs, Red and Bebop.

Brazilian artist Ivan Reis began his career in American comics in 1996 working on the Dark Horse series, Ghost, beginning with issue 17. After stints on The MaskTime Cop, and Xena: Warrior Princess, he left Dark Horse to work on several Lady Death mini-series at Chaos! and several fill-in issues at Marvel and DC Comics. While having worked on several books for both Marvel and DC, including Captain MarvelAvengersRann/Thanagar War, and Infinite Crisis, he s most widely-known for this work with Geoff Johns on Green Lantern and Blackest Night. After the launch of DC’s New 52, he worked with Johns again on the relaunch of Aquaman and has since taken over art duties on Justice League.

Since then, Prado has worked on such DC titles as Superman, Teen Titans, Birds of Prey, and Rann/Thanagar War (again working with Reis). His work has also been featured on the covers of such Dynamite Entertainment books as Red Sonja and Battlestar Galactica. His most recent work includes covers for DC Comics’ Resurrection ManAquaman, and Earth 2.

“We are so pleased to have both Ivan and Joe joining us here in Baltimore this year,” said Marc Nathan, Show Promoter of the Baltimore Comic-Con. “Their art has graced the pages of some of the best comics published in the last decade, and their art styles have helped shape the look and feel of the modern DC Universe.”

DeMatteis (Phantom Stranger); Dave Gibbons (The Secret Service); Keith Giffen (Masters of the Universe); Adam Hughes (Before Watchmen: Dr. Manhattan); Barry Kitson (Empire); Paul Levitz (World’s Finest); Kevin Maguire (World’s Finest); Mike Mignola (Hellboy In Hell); George Perez (World’s Finest); David Petersen (Mouse Guard); Chris Samnee (Daredevil); Louise Simonson (X-Factor); Walt Simonson (The Mighty Thor); Allison Sohn (sketch card artist); and Mark Waid (Indestructible Hulk).
