MING DOYLE, JOE QUINONES, and MARIS WICKS appear at The Big Bang on Friday, November 29, 2013 from 6:00pm until 8:00pm for a rare Irish signing!
Probably better known for her work on Brian Wood’s MARA and the artist in the new story arc of QUANTUM & WOODY, Ming also has done a ton of covers and a short story recently with Kelly Sue DeConnick for the WITCHING HOUR Vertigo anthology. (stil in stock, true believers!)
Joe has been around for the last couple of years, starting with TEEN TITANS GO and then GREEN LANTERN with Kurt Busiek and is of late a popular cover artist for DARK HORSE, DC and MARVEL (the last thing you’ll have seen him lately on would be the recent CAPTAIN MARVEL covers). He also has a BLACK CANARY/ZATANNA project coming out with Paul Dini soon, the lucky bastard.
Maris is the artist of (the really, really good) PRIMATES, which is currently sold out but due back in stock soon!
She is also a writer AND a colourist, so we’ll be seeing much more of her in the future.

Splash Page Comic Art would like to welcome Joe Quinones to our family of talented artists!
Joe Quinones is a relative newcomer to the industry, having first been published by DC Comics for their now defunct Teen Titans GO series in 2007. He is probably best known for his collaboration with writer Kurt Busiek on the Green Lantern serial for Mark Chiarello’s Eisner Award-winning Wednesday Comics. Since then, Joe has illustrated a number of covers and short stories for DC, Marvel, and Dark Horse, with a current cover run on Captain Marvel. Joe also has some unannounced interior work on the horizon, as well as a Zatanna/Black Canary graphic novel, written by Paul Dini, due out at the end of 2013.
I just added new Walking Dead art by Charlie Adlard and Wonder Woman art by Cliff Chiang to the website.
John McCrea Gallery- Just added some great splashes and interior pages from Deadpool, vintage Hitman pages from Garth Ennis’ series, plus The Boys and related books.

Comments Off on Awesome Artists Added to Baltimore Comic-Con 2011
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.”
