  3. We are pleased to announce our latest guest for LFCC PHIL WINSLADE Attending Saturday and Sunday AFTER a brief flurry of contributions to Crisis, Revolver and Judge Dredd Megazine for Fleetway, Phil Winslade made his US debut inking Car Warriors for Marvel’s creator owned Epic imprint. That was in 1991 as was an eight-pager he illustrated for the second issue of Marvel’s Impossible Man’s Summer Vacation Spectacular. His comics output over the next few years was limited although he drew the occasional fill-in for such DC titles as Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight and The Spectre before being commissioned to illustrate the eight-issue Goddess in 1995 for DC/Vertigo. Two years later he followed that with the Wonder Woman: Amazonia one-shot before returning to DC’s mature readers imprint in 1998 for Nevada. A six-parter, it was scripted by Steve Gerber with whom Winslade would reunite in 2002 for Howard the Duck, Marvel’s six-issue resurrection of the writer’s signature character. The artist also pencilled the previous year’s Ant-Man’s Big Christmas one-shot and the four-issue Daredevil/Spider-Man for the House of Ideas. While continuing to draw fill-ins, pin-ups and covers, his next big project was illustrating nine of the 12 issues of 2004’s Monolith for DC. Recently he drew short runs on DC’s New 52 series Men of War and All-Star Western. He is currently collaborating with fellow artist Tom Raney on the lead feature in Threshold for the Batman and Superman publisher.
  4. We are pleased to announce our latest guest for LFCC Winter MARTIN GRIFFITHS Attending Sat/Sun ACROSS a career that dates back to 1986, Martin Griffiths has worked as a penciller and inker on a myriad Marvel UK/Panini and Titan titles. Among those to which he has contributed Real Ghostbusters, Killpower: The Early Years and Knights of Pendragon as well as the German edition of Biker Mice from Mars. He also worked for Marvel itself, most notably on Punisher kills the Marvel Universe.
  5. Latest Comic Guest Announcement - Arthur Suydam Arthur Suydam is an artist brought up by artists on the banks of the Hudson River. Early on, he was considered a child prodigy, was a working artist by the age of 18 and won numerous awards before the age of 20. His combining of classical painting with comic book art helped to create a movement in the 80's that made comics more accessible to a more mature audience. Although best known at present for his zombie interpretations of famous comic book covers from the past, his art career started with homages to Frank Frazetta in such books as TARZAN and DEATH DEALER. His charming adaptations of perennial favorites such as THE WIND IN THE WILLOWS and his own creation THE ADVENTURES OF CHOLLEY AND FLYTRAP have dropped off the radar of late. However, his covers for Dynamite's SAVAGE TALES, reminding one of the "Good Girl" art of the pulps, are currently trilling fans. Suydam is also an accomplished singer-songwriter. He worked with The Platters and as the tour director for Bill Haley and the Comets after Haley's death. He also served as music director and composer for the independent film, The Feud, where he had worked with the likes of Elton John, Billy Joel, Brucespringsteen and The Rolling Stones. The Gotham Playboys is the name of Suydam’s own band, which has recorded and toured with Bruce Springsteen.

  9. We are very please to announce - David Roach Attending: Sat/Sun WELL known for his encyclopaedic knowledge of comics history and for his remarkable ability to identify the work of other comics artists, David Roach began his professional career drawing for 2000 AD. He worked on various strips for the self-styled Galaxy’s Greatest Comic between 1988 and 1992, when he made his US debut illustrating a 13-page story for issue #3 of Marvel’s creator-owned Epic anthology. Over the next three years he pencilled for both DC and Dark Horse contributing to such titles as Dark Horse Comics, Star Wars: Tales of the Jedi – Knights of the Old Republic, Darkstars and Lobo before drawing 1996’s Batman/Demon one-shot. Much indemand as an inker especially on Doctor Who Magazine, Roach’s next major project was Star Trek: Voyager – Avalon Rising, a 2000 one-shot for DC’s WildStorm imprint following which he renewed his association with 2000 AD.

During this time, Renee was also the color artist on hundreds of comics from the Avengers to Spider-Man to Captain America, among many, many more, while writing for The Impossible Man Summer Special, Marvel Age, the Silver Surfer Annuals, and numerous other titles.

  15. NEAL ADAMS - Attending Saturday and Sunday One of the most influential artists of his era, Neal Adams got his start drawing the Ben Casey newspaper strip, which ran from 1962 to 1966. The following year he took to contributing to such of Warren’s horror anthologies as Creepy and Eerie before moving on to DC, where his realistic and innovative style radically overhauled the look of the publisher’s covers. After working on war and humour comics, he made comicbook readers sit up and take notice illustrating Deadman in Strange Adventures with his subsequent work on The Brave and the Bold and Batman [sporadically between 1970 and 1974) and especially the groundbreaking Green Lantern/Green Arrow [1971-72] garnering him legions of fans. Adams also began working for Marvel, providing not only covers but highly regarded if truncated runs on X-Men [1969-70] and Avengers [1971-72] as well as contributions to various anthologies. Although he remained in high demand for covers and the occasional short story, by the mid-1970s his focus had shifted outside the comics industry although his tour-de-force came in 1978. Better known as Superman vs Muhammad Ali, the tabloid-sized All-New Collectors’ Edition #C56 was major commercial and critical success. In 1984 he launched Continuity Comics. A spin-off from Continuity Studios (Adams’ commercial art operation), it sporadically published such titles as Ms Mystic (which the artist had premiered at Pacific Comics in 1982), Armor, Echo of Futurepast, Zero Patrol and Bucky O’Hare for the next decade. Other than his work on the Continuity titles, Adams was virtually absent from the scene until 2010 when DC announced he would be writing and drawing the six-issue Batman: Odyssey. A seven-part sequel followed in 2011 with the five-issue The First X-Men – his first significant work for Marvel in over 20 years – coming a year later.
  16. 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).
  17. DC THOMSON’S Starblazer: Space Fiction Adventures in Comics #102 [1983] was Geoff Senior’s first solo comics work although he had assisted Steve Parkhouse on Doctor Who Magazine Special #4 for Marvel UK and Quality’s Warrior #3 the year before. Later in 1983 he began contributing to 2000 AD and subsequently regularly to such Marvel UK comics as Action Force, Doctor Who, Spider-Man and Zoids and Transformers, the title with which he is most strongly associated. He also created Dragon’s Claws in collaboration with Transformers meister Simon Furman, drawing all 10 issues of the 1988 Marvel UK series. Again with Furman he co-created Death’s Head [1988] while also partnering writer Bernie Jaye in the conception of Hell’s Angel [1992] aka Dark Angel. Since the early ’90s he has worked outside comics although he does make the occasional foray back into the medium, all-but exclusively to add to his Transformers credits.
  18. ABOUT LEW STRINGER: ACROSS a career that stretches back to the late 1970s cartoonist Lew Stringer has contributed humour strips to a vast array of British comics, among them Action Force, Oink!, Sonic the Comic, Toxic!, The Beano and The Dandy as well as to Geek for the Norwegian market and to Sweden’s Herman Hedning. Among his most famous creations are Brickman, Combat Colin, Tom Thug and Suburban Satanists .
  19. ABOUT JOSH ADAMS: A RELATIVE newcomer to comics, Josh Adams made his debut in 2009 illustrating a contribution to DC’s House of Mystery #9 in collaboration with his father, the legendary Neal Adams. His first solo effort – Amazing Cow Heroes #5 for Chick-fil-A – came the following year. Since then he has contributed to Hill & Wang’s 2011 anthology Ray Bradbury's The Martian Chronicles: The Authorized Adaptation as well as assisting his father on his 2011 DC seven-parter Batman: Odyssey. In his own right he has drawn issues of various of IDW’s Doctor Who titles.
  20. Chris Weston - Attending Saturday and Sunday THE FIRST nine years of Chris Weston’s comics career were dedicated to 2000 AD. Starting off with a bang – with a Judge Dredd six-pager in 1988’s Prog 596 – the British artist remained closely associated with the self-styled Galaxy’s Greatest Comic – until 1997. Although he had illustrated occasional issues of DC/Vertigo titles previously, it was when he began collaborating with acclaimed Scots writer Grant Morrison on The Invisibles in 1998 that his career really took off in the US. After eight issues of the DC/Vertigo mature readers comic he slid back to 2000 AD prior to returning to the mature readers imprint in 2000 for the first three issues of Lucifer. The following year brought the Dan Dare-influenced, Warren Ellis Ministry of Space for Image while in 2001 he drew writer Garth Ennis’s War Stories: Johann’s Tiger one-shot for Vertigo, where he remained for a 13-issue reunion with Morrison on 2002’s The Filth. It wasn’t until 2006 that he produced his next major comicbook work and made his second foray into the superhero genre (the first was two 2000 issues of DC/WildStorm’s The Authority) with a three-parter in Batman: Legend of the Dark Knight preceding his first Marvel assignment: the six-part Fantastic Four: First Family. Since then, Weston’s comics output has slowed dramatically as he has concentrated on other projects. Although he still makes the occasional contribution to 2000 AD and its companion title, Judge Dredd Megazine, his last significant work was the 12 issues of The Twelve for Marvel. Much delayed, the title – which launched in 2008 – wasn’t concluded until 2012.
  21. Latest Comic Guest JIM STARLIN Attending Fri/Sat/sun SPOILER ALERT: If you’ve yet to see the Avengers movie, don’t read any further. If you have, you’ll know that Thanos has been lined up to be the villain in the sequel. That’ll bring Jim Starlin’s talent to a much wider audience than the comics fans who have followed his work since he first broke into the business in late 1972. Having earned his dues working on a variety of fanzines, he began his professional career at Marvel, where as well as inking stories and covers, he pencilled contributions to My Love #20 and Journey into Mystery #1 before embarking on an assignment as regular artist on Iron Man that unfortunately lasted just three issues. That abortive run was however significant in that it allowed Starlin to not only reveal his talent as a writer but also introduce his death-loving creation, Thanos, who would be a significant presence in much of his Marvel work right up to the present day. Moving on from Iron Man, the writer/artist took over Captain Marvel and then – in 1975 – Warlock (initially in Strange Tales) with storylines that earned him the accolade “the man who put the cosmic into comics”. In between and concurrently he drew fill-ins and covers, co-created Shang Chi, Master of Kung Fu (introduced in 1973’s Marvel Special Edition #15), pencilled his first story for DC (in Sword of Sorcery #5) and began his exploration of theology, psychology, death, infinity and the cosmos – themes that run through much of his output – through stories he wrote and drew for the independent anthology Star*Reach. By the end of 1977, Starlin – who created Darklon the Mystic for Warren’s Eerie magazine in 1976 – had all-but ceased working for Marvel. Moving to DC, the visionary creator primarily drew fillers and covers although he did co-create Mongul, produce an OMAC backup strip in The Warlord and contribute Metamorphosis Odyssey to the first nine issues of Epic Illustrated Marvel’s creator-owned magazine. Also introduced in that anthology were Amber – which the writer/artist continued in Eclipse Comics’ own eponymous anthology – and Dreadstar. The latter, a Metamorphosis Odyssey spin-off that picked up from The Price (a 1981 Eclipse one-shot) and Marvel Graphic Novel #3: Metamorphosis Odyssey would gain its own Epic Comics title in 1982, the year Starlin killed of a second hero with whom he was closely associated. Having brought an end to Warlock’s life in 1977’s Eagle Award-winning Avengers Annual #7/Marvel Two-in-One Annual #2, he now unleashed the Grim Reaper in Marvel Graphic Novel #1. Better known as The Death of Captain Marvel, the highly acclaimed story was a milestone in the writer/artist’s career as well as in the superhero genre in general. Subsequently concentrating almost exclusively on Dreadstar (which moved to First Comics in 1982), in 1987 Starlin authored Marvel Graphic Novel #29 (The Big Change, which starred the Hulk and the Thing) and began a lauded run as writer of Batman. During his 16-issue tenure he introduced KGBeast and claimed a third victim – the second Robin (Jason Todd) – in the historic and mainstream publicity generating A Death in the Family (Batman #426-429). For DC he also wrote The Weird, Batman: The Cult and Cosmic Odyssey as well as producing Gilgamesh II before returning to Marvel as the 1990s began. Back at the House of Ideas the ever-prolific creator scripted Silver Surfer (including the Homecoming graphic novel), The Thanos Quest, X-Factor Special: Prisoner of Love, Punisher: P.O.V., Punisher: The Ghosts of Innocents, Warlock and the Infinity Watch, Warlock Chronicles and the Daredevil/Black Widow: Abattoir graphic novel as well as writing and drawing Warlock/Silver Surfer: Resurrection as well as a Thanos-focused trilogy encompassing Infinity Gauntlet, Infinity War and Infinity Crusade. Although he continued as writer of Warlock and the Infinity Watch, by 1993 Starlin had pretty much left Marvel behind, moving on to Bravura (Malibu’s short-lived creator-owned imprint) where he created ’Breed and relaunched Dreadstar. Bravura folded in 1995 and the writer/artist did little in comics until 1998 when he resurfaced at DC with Hardcore Station. He followed that by writing Fighting American: Dogs of War for Awesome, illustrating Acclaim’s Unity 2000 and producing his own Wyrd the Reluctant Warrior for Slave Labor Graphics. The new Millenium dawned with Starlin back at Marvel where he drew a handful of issues of Captain Marvel, co-wrote Space Knights (a revival of the Rom, Space Knight concept shorn of the licenced aspects) and extended his earlier Thanos trilogy with a 2002 fourth chapter entitled Infinity Abyss. A year later the writer/artist killed off the House of Ideas’ entire cosmos in Marvel Universe: The End before launching his death-worshipping villain into his own title. Starlin quit Thanos after six issues, moving on to create Cosmic Guard for Devil’s Due and a spin-off graphic novel, 2006’s Kid Kosmos: Kidnapped, for Dynamite. Since then he has produced Mystery in Space (2006) and Rann/Thanagar: Holy War (2008) as well as killing of more heroes in 2007’s Death of the New Gods; all three for DC. His most recent work is ’Breed III, an Image seven-parter that wraps up the saga he began 18 years earlier at Bravura.
  22. KEV HOPGOOD Attending Sunday only. Three years after a brief flirtation with the then still extant underground comics scene (he wrote and illustrated a contribution to 1981’s Knockabout Comics #3) Hopgood resurfaced drawing mainstream comics. Like many of his peers he contributed to 2000 AD (for which he worked on and off until 1995) but also illustrated stories for Marvel UK where his art graced the pages of Spider-Man and Zoids as well as such titles as Mighty World of Marvel, Thundercats, Action Force and Doctor Who. He made his US debut in 1988 with issue #4 of G.I. Joe European Missions continuing to contribute to that Marvel title until the following year. Marvel US came calling again in 1992 at which time he became the regular penciller on Iron Man. He stayed on the title for just over two years during which time he co-created War Machine. Stories for the Warhammer Monthly anthology (published by Games Workshop’s Black Library imprint for which he also drew three Darkblade graphic novels) followed but by 2000 he was all-but out of comics. He resurfaced in 2008 to draw two Warhammer 40,000 minis for BOOM! Studios but has since returned to illustrating children's books and educational books.
  23. We are pleased to announce our latest comic guest for LFCC ANDREW WILDMAN 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. Now reuniting with acclaimed Transformers writer Simon Furman for Transformers: Regeneration, a soon-to-launch IDW series that continues and concludes the story left unfinished when Marvel (US) cancelled its Transformers comic in 1991, Wildman includes Felicia Hardy: The Black Cat, G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero, Mission: Impossible, Venom: Carnage Unleashed and X-Men Adventures among his many credits. Wildman, who made his US debut in 1989 with G.I. Joe European Missions #10, is the founder of Draw the World Together, a charity that raises funds to benefit street children around the world and create healthcare and education possibilities. Frontier, a strip he drew in 2009 for the now-defunct DFC has recently been collected in a hardcover edition subtitled Dealing with Demons by Print Media Productions.
  24. We are pleased to announce our latest Comic guest for LFCC SIMON FURMAN For nigh on three decades he has been the foremost chronicler of the adventures of Hasbro’s Robots in Disguise. So closely linked with the development of the comicbook versions of the action figures has Simon Furman been that fans refer to him as the Transformers-meister. While he kicked of his comics career in 1984 as an editor, he very quickly made the transition to writer, initially on Fleetway’s junior horror comic Scream but within a year he’d made his Transformers debut (on 1985’s #13). He remained closely associated with the Marvel UK title until its cancellation in 1992. Along the way he also became the regular scripter of the US edition of the comic, staying on that Transformers series until it was axed in 1991. The writer of numerous Robots in Disguise comics for Marvel (on both sides of the Pond), DreamWave and most recently IDW , Furman has now reunited with artist Andrew Wildman (his long time Transformers collaborator) for Transformers: Regeneration, a soon-to-launch IDW series that continues and concludes the story left unfinished when Marvel (US) cancelled its Transformers comic. However Furman has numerous credits that go far beyond the Robots in Disguise. It’s a list that includes a wide diversity of titles, among them Sensational She-Hulk, Doctor Who, Alpha Flight and Robocop as well as Dragon’s Claws and Death’s Head, both of which he co-created.
  25. we are pleased to announce our latest comic guest for LFCC LIAM SHALLOO Liam is a Comic Book & Graphic artist known primarily for his work with Sony Games, IDW Publishing and Titan Comics. After starting out on the Transformers Spotlight series, he then progressed to the Transformers Animated and movie franchises as well as Dr Who, GI Joe and more recently Spider-Man. He currently works in the Games industry as an artist on Sony's Mega Hit SingStar franchise.
