Stars of HeroesCon!

I just wanted to take a couple of moments now that the crush of HeroesCon is over and bring you up-to-date on some of the coolest people and things I saw in Charlotte.

Teenage Satan: This insidiously amazing idea percolated from the unholy trio of Stephanie Buscema, Marsha Cooke and Candis Cooke. Uh, Satan? In high-school? Yes please! (and these ladies are already scaring the system, the corporate muck-a-mucks made them take down their first trailer).

Of course in the wild we'd be natural enemies.

Ninjasaurus: Written and drawn by my doppelganger, Jason Horn, this web-comic asks what would happen if a dinosaur trained in the blacks arts of Ninjitsu? The answer: Lots of fighting (but surprisingly little biting).

All City Studios: I never got a chance to chat with John Hairston, the man who does this amazing work, but his Galactus, Panda’s and Shanti Babba-inspired work speaks for itself. If not for a very real fear of being murdered by my fiancee, and a total lack of funds, one of these babies woulda been mine.

A pin-up Richard was selling at Heroes Con.

Richard Case: A fantastic comic artist who now works primarily in video games, Richard is probably best known for his work on Grant Morrison’s run on Doom Patrol. He gave us this awesome sketchbook and was an all-around amazing guy.

Jackie Lewis, Noelle Giffin, Jen Keith, Laura Truxillo: These were four lovely ladies we met who are all either in art-school, or just finishing who are working on their own projects. Check out this new talent and see what the next wave of female illustrators and comic artists is up to!

    Oh man I just found this page from a link through a link. Thanks so much for the feature! It was really amazing meeting you guys and I did indeed read through the first and second issues of Kill Shakespeare. I’ve yet to acquire the rest but what I read so far has been fantastic. Great work from an amazing team!

    Thanks Noelle,

    We hope you track down the rest of the first six pretty soon as the second volume with the second half of the story is out in about a month.

    If you have any problems finding them let us know and we can mail’em to you.
