    Cincinnati Comic Expo Announces Four Legendary Swamp Thing Artists as 2012 Guests of Honor

    Press Release:

    Cincinnati Comic Expo Announces Four Legendary Swamp Thing Artists as Guests of Honor

    The Cincinnati Comic Expo is thrilled to announce that four legendary Swamp Thing artists—Tom Yeates, Rick Veitch, John Totleben, and Stephen R. Bissette—will appear, together for the first time, as the Expo’s 2012 Guests of Honor.

    The Director of the Cincinnati Comic Expo, Andrew Satterfield, said, “I am always looking for opportunities for our fans to meet extraordinary creators. The chance to meet even one of these hugely talented gentlemen is an extremely rare treat. All four in one room is like winning the lottery.”

    Long-time collaborators Yeates, Veitch, Totleben, and Bissette were part of the 1980s team (along with writer Alan Moore) chosen by DC Comics to revive the comic series, Swamp Thing. Bringing them together as Guests of Honor at the Cincinnati Comics Expo is a reunion of epic proportions—a once in a lifetime opportunity for fans to meet these award-winning artists at the same time.

    Their spectacular run on Swamp Thing is historic for several reasons. One, their 1980s run of Saga of the Swamp Thing was the first mainstream comic to write directly for adults. Another history making moment occurred with issue 37, published in 1985, when the well-known character of John Constantine made his first appearance, drawn by Rick Veitch and John Totleben.

    The collaborative creativity of Yeates, Veitch, Totleben, and Bissette was so close that they often worked on the same issue of the comic, with one creating the cover art, another doing the pencil work and another the inking. At times, on every other issue, they would swap duties and this really made the comic a group effort.

    All 4 will be available to meet fans and sign books at the show. The Cincinnati Comic Expo will also host a panel with all of them on stage to have a collective gathering and discussion on their work and Swamp Thing. More details will come out about that before the show.
