  1. Writer/editor: Resident Alien; Terra Obscura; 2000 AD; The Sandman Presents: Love Street; Captain America/Nick Fury: The Otherworld War Attending: Saturday Only AFTER working for The Who's Pete Townsend as commissioning editor for Eel Pie Publishing, Peter Hogan wound up at Quality Comics, where he served as an editor on the UK-based label's line of 2000 AD reprints aimed at the US market. That was during the mid-to-late '80s after which he moved on to Fleetway. There, after working on 1989's 2000 AD Winter Special, he became editor ofRevolver, editing all seven issues of the experimental title as well as the two specials the 1990 comic spawned. Two years later, Hogan (who had also been working as a music journalist) began writing scripts for 2000 AD with his first stories appearing2000 AD Sci-Fi Special 1992 and 2000 AD Action Special before he began contributing to the self-styled Galaxy's Great Comic itself. Debuting on Prog 793, he wrote regularly for the weekly anthology until late 1995. In 1996 he was hired by Vertigo (DC's mature readers imprint) to write a four-issue run on The Dreaming. After a smattering of other issues of that title Hogan embarked on 1999's The Sandman Presents: Love Street before authoring his one and only Marvel project, the Captain America/Nick Fury: The Otherworld War one-shot, two years later. Subsequently he was brought in by Alan Moore to contribute to the famed British writer's America's Best Comics line, which was published by DC under its Wildstorm umbrella. Hogan scripted two Terra Obscura six-parters (in 2003 and 2004) as well as the six issues of 2010's Tom Strong and the Robots of Doom and of 2013'sTom Strong and the Planet of Peril. In 2011, after a three-part prelude in the Dark Horse Presents anthology. the writer unveiled Resident Alien, a 2012 three-parter. Two further three-issue DHP serials followed, the first leading into 2013's Resident Alien: The Suicide Blonde three-parter and the second a prelude to the three issues of Resident Alien: The Sam Hain Mystery which came along two years later. Hogan's most recent project is The King's Road, a 2016 three-parter that began life as a three-issue DHP serial three years before.
  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. EL TORRES Writer/publisher/editor: Nancy in Hell; Rogues!; The Westwood Witches ATTENDING Friday, Saturday & Sunday BASED in Spain but publishing only English-language titles, Amigo Comics is the brainchild of Juan ‘El’ Torres, whose earliest US excursion was as the writer of CVO: Covert Vampire Operations – African Blood. That 2006 four-parter was published by IDW, for which Torres simultaneously wrote the four-issue Zombies! Eclipse of the Undead. For IDW he also authored two other four-parters – 2009’s The Veil and the following year’s The Suicide Forest. In addition, in 2010 he scripted the 10 issues of his signature series, Nancy in Hell, which he followed with two four-parters: Drums [2011] and Nancy in Hell on Earth[2012]. While published by Image those latter three titles were the first produced by Amigo, which was established by Torres primarily as a platform for his own work. In 2013, Amigo struck out on its own, declaring its independence with the Torres-written Rogues!. The following year the Spanish writer scripted a five-part sequel to that six-parter and then a two-issue follow up (both similarly titled Rogues!) although he’d also launched The Westwood Witches four-parter in 2013. Torres’ other 2014 output included the Nancy in Hell: A Dragon in Hell one-shot together with the four issues of Ghost Wolf and of Roman Ritual. His most recent projects were a 2015 return to Rogues! for a five-parter subtitled Odd Parenthood and El Fantasma de Gaudí (Gaudi's Ghost), a graphic novel released in Spain in 2016 by Norma Editorial.

  5. Latest Comic Guest Announcement - KAREN BERGER Editor of DC's Vertigo line Attending: Friday, Saturday & Sunday DUBBED Comics' Mother of the Weird Stuff by The New York Times, Karen Berger has played a major role in the development of comics beyond the action/adventure themes that became the US market's primary focus from the 1960s on. Entering the industry in 1979 as assistant to DC editor Paul Levitz, she graduated to editing House of Mystery in 1981 taking on her first superhero title in Legion of Super-Heroes two years later. In 1983 Berger was, among other things, also responsible for launching Amethyst, Princess of Gemworld but it was the following year that events began to shape the direction of her career, taking her down the path that would lead her to play a pivotal role in comicbook history. More interested in horror than in mainstream (read superhero) comics, in 1984 she took on [The Saga of] Swamp Thing, which Alan Moore had begun writing only five issues before. It was a match made in Heaven. Under Berger's stewardship, the game-changing British writer was able to forge ahead with his innovative approach, pretty much singlehandedly ushering a new generation of sophisticated comics that appealed to older readers. Impressed by Moore's skill and wanting to further evolve the comics medium, Berger sought out other British talent, bringing such writers as Neil Gaiman, Grant Morrison, Peter Milligan and Jamie Delano into the DC fold before the '80s were over. Between them they would produce a variety of 'Suggested for Mature Readers' titles withAnimal Man, Doom Patrol, Shade the Changing Man, The Sandman andHellblazer migrating from DC to form the foundation of a new Berger-driven imprint alongside Swamp Thing and the freshly launched Black Orchid. Aimed squarely at the embryonic mature readers market, Vertigo flourished and Berger and her team began to expand the line. From its birth in 1993 through until 2011 when the stars of the imprint's original properties were absorbed back into the DC Universe, numerous new titles premiered with Preacher, Sandman Mystery Theatre, Y the Last Man, Scalped, 100 Bullets, Loveless, The Unwritten,Transmetropolitan and Fables being just a handful of Vertigo's major successes. As Gaiman, Morrison et al drifted off to other pastures, their roles at the writer-centric label were taken up by the likes of Garth Ennis, Mike Carey, Brian Azzarello, Jason Aaron, Bill Willingham, Brian K Vaughan and Warren Ellis among many others. Throughout it was Berger's hand that guided Vertigo's development, expanding the line beyond its fantasy roots to encompass such other genres as science fiction, crime, Westerns and historical. Elevated to Executive Editor and Senior Vice President of the DC Entertainment imprint in 2006, she stepped down from her role seven years later and after 33 years of steering the ship that became Vertigo through what at the outset were uncharted waters After three years away from comics, she will be returning with Surgeon X. Funded by a Society Award from Wellcome Trust (an independent global charitable foundation dedicated to improving health) the ongoing series is written by documentary filmmaker Sara Kenney and illustrated by John Watkiss. It debuts from Image later in 2016.

  7. Latest Comic Guest Announcement - Richard Burton Attending: Saturday and Sunday Editor: Sonic the Comic; 2000 AD ANOTHER Brit whose years in fandom sequed into a long-lasting career in comics, Richard Burton was one of the powers behind Comic Media, one of the UK’s earliest fanzines, which premiered in 1971. From there he swiftly moved on to publish/edit the award-winning Comic Media News before taking an editorial position at Marvel UK in 1978. Two years later Burton – who co-founded the prestigious Eagle Awards in 1976 – wound up CMN after 40 issues. Virtually simultaneously he migrated to Fleetway becoming assistant editor on 2000 AD, where he was immortalised as BURT, an editorial droid first seen in 1981’s Prog 198. Absent from the title from 1984 to 1986 while he worked on other comics and magazines, Burton returned to the weekly in 1987. With Prog 520 he was elevated to editor of the self-styled Galaxy’s Greatest Comic. Assuming the weekly’s traditional Tharg the Mighty identity, he remained at the helm until 1994 leaving after Prog 872 to focus on Sonic the Comic, the title he had launched the previous year for Egmont, which had acquired 2000 AD in 1991. Although he continues to write about comics, two years later he left the medium itself entirely to concentrate on other publishing arenas.
