Press Release:

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!”

Press Release:

Baltimore Comic-Con Adds Hot Talent to the Summer Heat
 
BALTIMORE, MARYLAND – May 23, 2011 – The Baltimore Comic-Con has just added a slew of fan-favorite creators to the growing list of talent for this year’s show. Cully Hamner, Craig Rousseau, Todd Dezago, Brian Stelfreeze, and Karl Story will all be in attendance when the show rolls into Baltimore on August 20-21, 2011.
 
Cully Hamner, one of the original members of Gaijin Studios, has worked professionally in the comics industry for the last 20 years. His writing and art has been featured in books from DC Comics, Vertigo, Marvel Comics, Image, and many more. The artist behind Wildstorm’s Red, which was adapted as a feature film in 2010 by Summit Entertainment, Hamner re

Craig Rousseau broke into comics in the early-’90s, providing art for DC Comics’ Impulse. After a 22-issue run, Rousseau went on to become the semi-regular artist on Batman Beyond and Harley Quinn. In 2005, along with writer Todd Dezago, Rousseau co-created the series The Perhapanauts, which debuted at Dark Horse Comics. Rousseau most recently worked on Marvel Comics’ Marvel Her-Oes, which showcased the women of the Marvel Universe, as well as Captain America & the Korvac Saga, a reimagining of the original 1978 classic.
 
Writer Todd Dezago, whose body of work includes The Sensational Spider-Man and Tellos (with the late Mike Wieringo), is the co-creator of Young Justice from DC Comics and The Perhapanauts from Dark Horse/Image. In 2010, Dezago took over writing duties for Super Hero Squad, an all-ages title from Marvel, and recently finished up Super Hero Squad Spectacular #1. He is currently working on the motion comic versions of his own Tellos and Perhapanauts, as well as an all-new title, Katie Greaven and the Engine-Men, with artist Bret Blevins for MotionWorks Entertainment.
 
Brian Stelfreeze, who was also a founding member of Gaijin Studios, is the current art director of 12 Gauge Comics. An accomplished painter, penciller, inker and colorist, Stelfreeze’s art graced more than 50 covers for DC Comics’ Shadow of the Bat.  He most recently worked on the Demon/Catwoman feature for DC’s Wednesday Comics, which was written by previously-announced guest, Walter Simonson.
 
Karl Story, yet another founding member of Gaijin Studios, is an inker whose work has added depth and shadow to such titles as Nightwing, Batman, Aliens versus Predator, X-Men, Terra Obscura, Tom Strong, Ocean, The American Way, and Midnighter. Most recently, Story worked on the DC Comics’ mini-series, DC Universe Legacies.
 
“Gaijin was such an influential studio throughout the ’90s and 2000s. With Cully [Hamner], Brian [Stelfreeze], Karl [Story] and Laura [Martin] on board for this year’s show, we’ve got the core group of creators that helped propel so many careers,” said Marc Nathan, show promoter of the Baltimore Comic-Con. “Also, the addition of Todd Dezago and Craig Rousseau to our growing roster adds such talent to the fan-favorite creators already attending the show.”
 
In addition to Hamner, Rousseau, Dezago, Stelfreeze and Story, confirmed guests for the show including: Jason Aaron (Scalped, PunisherMAX); Charlie Adlard (The Walking Dead); Nick Cardy (Aquaman, Teen Titans); Cliff Chiang (Greendale); Frank Cho (50 Girl 50, X-Men: Schism, New Ultimates); David Finch (Brightest Day, Batman: The Dark Knight); Ron Frenz (Spider-Girl); Jose-Luis Garcia-Lopez (Wednesday Comics, Batman Confidential); Michael Golden (creator of Bucky O’Hare); Mike Grell (Action Comics, The Pilgrim); Brad Guigar (Evil, Inc., Courting Disaster); Steve Hamaker (Bone); Dean Haspiel (The Alcoholic, Act-i-Vate); Jamal Igle (Supergirl, Zatanna); J.G.
