  1. RICK LEONARDI FIRST UK APPEARANCE Artist: Spider-Man 2099; Cloak and Dagger; Green Lantern vs Aliens; Painkiller Jane; Nightwing; Star Wars: General Grievous Attending: Friday, Saturday & Sunday A LITTLE more than a decade after he began drawing comics professionally, Rick Leonardi and writer Peter David introduced a new futuristic rendition of Marvel's web-slinger in Spider-Man 2099. Initially, the artist – who pencilled the first 25 issues of the 1992 title – had started out illustrating fill-ins as many newcomers do. Commencing in 1981 with Thor #303 Leonardi went on to issues of Spectacular Spider-Man and Amazing Spider-Manbefore taking on 1982's Vision and the Scarlet Witch four-parter and then the following year a miniseries that would establish a strong link with duo that had made their MU entrance just a year before. Although he didn't create the characters, his work on the four issues of 1983's Cloak and Dagger, the similarly titled six-parter that came along two years later and his run of five issues on the ongoing [The Mutant Misadventures of] Cloak and Daggerseries launched earlier in 1990 has led to fans forever associate Leonardi with the pair. In between the two Cloak and Dagger minis, Leonardi was responsible for the design of Spider-Man's black costume, evolving Mike Zeck's original concept sketch into the outfit that debuted in 1984's Amazing Spider-Man #252. Alongside and post those two Cloak and Dagger titles the artist continued to produce infrequent fill-ins including, in 1986 making his DC debut on New Teen Titans #22. Three years later he embarked on a 12-chapter Colossus strip in Marvel Comics Presents, returning to the anthology in 1992 to pencil the six episodes of a Doctor Strange/Ghost Rider serial. From there, after a diversion to contribute a Predator serial in the first two issues of Dark Horse's Dark Horse Comics, Leonardi moved on to Spider-Man 2099, following his 25-issue stint on that title with Spider-Man 2099 meets Spider-Man, a 1995 one-shot. After that came the 1996 first issue of Fantastic Four 2099. Later in '96, Leonardi – whose earlier fill-ins had included issues of various of Marvel's mutants title (X-Men, New Mutants, Cable and Excalibur among them) – provided illustrations for all three volumes of X-Men: Mutant Empire and for The Ultimate X-Men for Byron Preiss Multimedia. The five issues of 1997's Painkiller Jane (an Event Comics mini) came next with two related one-shots – Harris'sVampirella/Painkiller Jane and Painkiller Jane/Hellboy for Event – following hot on its heels. Then, in 1998, the artist returned to Marvel for the six issues of Rampaging Hulk. The following year he pencilled the X-Men: True Friends three-parter after which he drew the four-issues of Green Lantern vs Aliens, published by Dark Horse in 2000. In 2001 came Marvel's Leonardi-pencilled Sentry/Spider-Man one-shot after which the artist migrated over to DC where, after (among other things) a three-issue run onBirds of Prey, he became regular penciller on Nightwing. He illustrated 11 issues of that series before moving on to seven issues of Batgirl, which took him into 2004. Following a one-off reunion with Spider-Man 2099 (in the one and only issue of 2005's Spider-Man Family anthology), Leonardi – who had drawn a number of Star Wars fill-ins over the previous five or six years – then swung back to Dark Horse for the Star Wars: General Grievous four-parter. Prime among the one-offs illustrated by Leonardi over the next year or so were 2005's Elektra on the Rise and Giant-Size X-Men #4 for Marvel and DC'sSuperman Returns Prequel (2006). Then, in 2007, came a five issue run on DC'sJLA: Classified followed by four issues of Superman. Remaining at DC. the artist next illustrated 2008's Adam Strange Special and then two of the four issues of DC Universe: Decisions. After that came all but three of the 12-issues of 2009's Vigilante and then, a year later, Dark Horse's Aliens vs Predator: Three World War six-parter. The five issues of Star Wars: Darth Vader and the Lost Command followed in 2011. In 2012, Leonardi drew the two issues of Watson & Holmes, relaunching that New Paradigm Studios title in 2013, when it ran for a further four issues. The next year he pencilled a fill-in issue of the 2014 incarnation of Spider-Man 2099 after which he returned to DC, where he has drawn the two issues of Convergence Batgirl as well as the three of 2015's Justice League: Gods & Monsters – Wonder Woman and, most recently, the similarly titled one-shot that followed that miniseries. Despite occupying much of his time with activities outside the comics bubble, Leonardi's talents have been in constant demand by Marvel and DC. He has carved himself a solid reputation across a career that stretches back over 35 years.
  2. Latest Comic Guest Announcement - Rich Buckler FIRST APPEARANCE OUTSIDE AMERICA Attending: Friday, Saturday & Sunday Writer/artist/editor: Deathlok; Fantastic Four; Superman vs Shazam!; All-Star Squadron; Spectacular Spider-Man; World's Finest; Red Circle Comics WHILE he is renowned for his ground-breaking creation of Deathlok the Demolisher, Rich Buckler had been working in comics for years before his 1974 introduction of the futuristic cyborg in Marvel's Astonishing Tales #25. Buckler – who had been producing work for fanzines and organising conventions in his native Detroit from the age of 15 – made his professional debut as an 18-year old with a four-pager for King Features' Flash Gordon #10. That was in 1967 but it would be another four years before the artist's career really kicked into gear. Although he wrote and drew a seven-page contribution to a 1970 issue of Warren'sEerie [#29], Buckler had to wait until 1971 for regular assignments to start coming his way. Initially hired by DC to illustrate strips for House of Secrets and The Unexpected and subsequently by Skywald to contribute to Hell-Rider, he ended the year drawing a back-up in DC's Superman and beginning a five-part Rose & Thorn feature in the back of Superman's Girlfriend, Lois Lane. Then, in 1972, he added a four-issue run on the Robin strip in the back of Batmanbefore moving across to Marvel. There he initially pencilled four issues of The Avengers, two of Astonishing Tales and one of Fear. While remaining at the House of Ideas throughout the following year (primarily as a cover artist although he filled-in on a handful of titles, Daredevil and Jungle Action among them), Buckler did spread his wings to contribute to an issue of Gold Key's Twilight Zone anthology, make a one-off return to Eerie and provide a Hawkman back-up in Detective Comics #434 for DC. At the beginning of 1974, the artist embarked on his first major assignment. As regular penciller of Fantastic Four, he drew 21 issues across the next two-and-a-half years but still found time not only to produce covers and provide contributions to various anthologies but also to orchestrate Deathlok's debut. As already mentioned, Buckler introduced his innovative hero in 1974's Astonishing Tales 25, continuing to work on the concept (with co-writer Doug Moench on board early on) until the title itself was cancelled two years later with #36. Incredibly prolific, the artist also produced a four-issue run on Thor alongside his cover work and various one-offs and fill-ins. While still concentrating on Fantastic Four and his other Marvel work, in 1975 he once again took to producing back-ups and the odd fill-in for DC. He also created Demon Hunter, a character he introduced in the one and only issue of his own 1975 Atlas/Seaboard comic. Two years later he reworked the supernatural hero, bringing him into the Marvel Universe as Devil-Hunter in Marvel Spotlight #33 and then, reinventing him yet again as Bloodwing, who appeared in the first (and as it happened last) issue of Galaxia Magazine (published in 1981 on the artist's own Astral Comics label). From 1976 when his Fantastic Four stint was over, Buckler focused on cover art (often inking artists he had admired growing up) while also drawing an occasional story for Marvel and DC for which he not only illustrated 1978's tabloid-sizedSuperman vs Shazam! (aka All-New Collectors' Edition C-58) but also a five-issue run on Secret Society of Super-Villains in 1977 and five issues of Justice League of America four years later. Additionally for the latter –while becoming virtually a resident contributor to World's Finest Comics (with Buckler-drawn strips appearing in 19 issues of that anthology between 1979 and 1982) – he also launched All-Star Squadron, illustrating the first five issues of that 1981 title. By early 1983 Buckler – who'd illustrated The Incredible Hulk newspaper strip during 1979 – was working for neither Marvel nor DC. Instead he'd migrated to Archie Comics, which was re-establishing its superhero-centric Red Circle imprint. Although the revival was short-lived, Buckler was involved across the line, editing, writing, drawing and/or providing covers for many of the comics published before a second revamp was implemented in 1984. At that point the artist returned to DC, where he again took to drawing fill-ins before, in 1985 pencilling a four-issue run on Tales of the Teen Titans. After that he bounced back to Marvel to draw five straight issues of Spectacular Spider-Man. Continuing to be in demand for his covers (including for Solson for which he'd authored How to become a Comic Book Artist and How to Draw Superheroes in 1986), it wasn't until 1988 that the artist took on his next major project. That was the 12 issues of The Saga of the Sub-Mariner. In 1989, midway through that series, he made a four-issue return to The Avengers, after which he revisited Fantastic Fourfor a seven-issue run alongside which he pencilled a Havok seven-parter serialised inMarvel Comics Presents. Then came 1990's The Saga of the Original Human Torch but that Marvel four-parter was the last of Buckler's significant works. After it and throughout the '90s the artist continued a steady stream of stories but it was primarily fill-ins for not only Marvel but also for DC's Milestone imprint, Topps, Malibu, Continuity, Now Comics and Tekno Comics. Since the turn of the century the artist has dramatically changed direction, establishing himself as a surrealist painter of some repute. As a result his comics output has been reduced to almost nothing. Even so over the course of his career Buckler has produced an enormous body of work, one that has seen him draw virtually all of Marvel and DC's major characters and many of their minor ones as well.
  3. Latest Guest Announcement - Ramón Rosanas Artist: Ant-Man; Night of the Living Deadpool; Agents of Atlas; Spider-Man 1602 ALTHOUGH his US comic book career didn’t get underway until 2008, Ramón Rosanas had already been drawing professionally in his native Spain for over 20 years prior to that. There he was contributing to magazines, newspapers and advertising (providing art for Coca-Cola, Martini, Yellow Pages and the like) alongside stories for some Spanish comic publishers. Rosanas, who’d briefly worked for Marvel UK in the early ‘90s, made his US debut on The Age Of the Sentry, beginning an exclusive relationship with Marvel that continues to this day. He followed that 2008 six-parter —which he pencilled in association with Nick Dragotta — by working on the five issues of 2009’s Marvel 1602 : Spider-Man and then, in 2010, on the Agents of Atlas five-parter as well as providing a contribution to the one and only issue of World War Hulks. Although the Spanish artist then illustrated a 2011 issue of X-Men Forever, he was effectively absent from the US scene for three years, while he was working in two graphic albums for French publishers – World War 2.2 (for Dargaud) and Fraternités (Delcourt). Both were published in 2013 as was Marvel’s Iron Man 2 Film Adaptation. In 2014, the Spaniard drew his most prestigious project to date, the Night of the Living Deadpool four-parter with the five-issues of Ant-Man and the subsequent Ant-Man: Last Days one-shot following in 2015. As the year drew to a close, Rosanas —who spends much of his time between comic assignments providing illustrations for books, magazines and advertising — came on board to launch Astonishing Ant-Man. It is his first ongoing project.
  4. Latest Comic Guest Announcement - Andrew Wildman Attending: Sat & Sun Artist: Transformers, X-Men Adventures, Spider-Man: The Arachnis Project Transformers @ 30 Celebration Like so many other British artists of his generation, Andrew Wildman began his professional career in the pages of 2000 AD; in 1987’s Prog 539. Within a year he’d migrated to Marvel UK where he contributed to such titles as Real Ghostbusters, Adventures of the Galaxy Rangers, Incredible Hulk Presents and Slimer but it was on Transformers that he was to really make his mark. His initial three-year association with the comicbook adventures of Hasbro’s Robots in Disguise continued until 1992 and included a run on the US version of the title. Transformers subsequently became a constant thread throughout his career. Reunited in 2012 with acclaimed Transformers writer Simon Furman for Transformers: Regeneration, a IDW series that continued and concluded (in 2014) the story left unfinished when Marvel (US) cancelled its Transformers comic in 1991. The artist made his US debut in 1989 with G.I. Joe European Missions #10. His subsequent American credits include Felicia Hardy: The Black Cat, G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero, Mission: Impossible, Venom: Carnage Unleashed, Spider-Man: The Arachnis Project and X-Men Adventures. Having drawn Power Rangers strip for Jetix Magazine from 2005 to 2009, he then illustrated Frontier for the now-defunct DFC. This was collected in a hardcover edition subtitled Dealing with Demons by Print Media Productions in 2012.

  9. ABOUT GLENN FABRY: LIKE many British creators, Glenn Fabry began with a fanzine (in his case Working Class Superhero) before getting his professional start at 2000 AD. In his case it was in 1985 when he began drawing Sláine for the self-styled Galaxy’s Greatest Comic, for which he still contributes the occasional work.. Immediately he also began producing covers for the weekly and subsequently for its companion titles Judge Dredd Megazine and Crisis. It was that move coupled with his decision to paint most of illustrations that led him to becoming a much in-demand cover artist for a host of US titles beginning in 1992 with Hellblazer. While primarily known for those adorning Hellblazer, Preacher and other DC/Vertigo titles, his cover paintings have also featured on the front of many more comics, among them Batman: Vengeance of Bane Special, Daredevil: The Target, Magog, Rage, Spawn: The Dark Ages, Spider-Man Universe, The Trenchcoat Brigade, Vengeance of Vampirella and X-Factor. Although he has concentrated on his cover paintings, Fabry has not entirely neglected his storytelling. Among his major projects have been Batman/Judge Dredd: Die Laughing (1998), The Authority: Kev (2002) and its 2004 sequel, Thor: Vikings (2003), Neil Gaiman’s Neverwhere (2006), Greatest Hits (2008) and Lot 13 (2012).
