HEROESCON 2013 GUEST LIST UPDATE :: BAD KARMA! JAMAL IGLE! JEREMY DALE! KEVIN MELLON! MATTHEW SOUTHWORTH! & MORE!

January 31, 2013 By: Rico Renzi Category: Guest List, HeroesCon

Recently, Alex Grecian, Jeremy Haun, B Clay Moore, and Seth Peck successfully raised their funding goal for the Bad Karma Kickstarter project. We happy to say the finished product will be debuting at HeroesCon 2013! Check out the nifty video they made for their Kickstarter campaign above and read more about this group of creators at their site http://badkarmacreative.com/ and here on Robot 6

Jeremy Dale’s fantasy-adventure comic series Skyward has been winning new fans for a while now and will make a lot more on Free Comic Book Day when it appears alongside Molly Danger. You might also recognize his name from GI Joe: A Real American Hero and NFL Rush Zone.

Speaking of Molly Danger, Jamal Igle will be returning to HeroesCon this year. Make sure you check out Molly when she debuts on Free Comic Book Day! Of course Jamal isn’t new to the scene, he’s worked on lots of your favorite titles including Kiss, Supergirl, World’s Finest, Nightwing, and Firestorm.

Morning Glories artist and co-creator Joe Eisma is returning to HeroesCon this summer. Joe also keep busy with freelance game art and animation. Ask him for a sketch, you won’t be disappointed!

After several attempts at ‘breaking in’ with the big name publishers, Comfort Love and Adam Withers decided to go into business for themselves. They have worked hard to build a loyal following with their creator-owned titles The Uniques and Rainbow in the Dark. Check them out here!

Kevin Mellon recently relocated to Atlanta to storyboard super spy comedy Archer so he’s practically local now! You’ve seen Kevin’s comic art in Heart, Lovestruck, and American Muscle in Creator Owned Heroes.

Returning for his second trip to HeroesCon is Matthew Southworth. Matthew just wrapped up the second arc of Stumptown with writer Greg Rucka (also attending this year’s show!). He’s a personal favorite of mine, seek him out for great conversation on comics, music and more!

STAFF PICKS :: X-MEN #38 & STUMPTOWN #3 :: NOVEMBER 07, 2012

November 06, 2012 By: Rico Renzi Category: DISCUSS, Staff Picks

Maybe I shouldn’t use the Heroes blog to push books I’ve worked on but darn it, I’m proud of these two books I colored that are coming out this week!

RICO’S PICK(S) :: X-MEN #38: The solicitations say this one is written by Brian Wood and David Lopez but I’m here to let you know that is incorrect my friends. X-Men #38 is written by Seth Peck and it features almost no X-Men! This issue a old-fashioned team up featuring Daredevil and Domino. The art is provided by Paul Azaceta and myself, check out page 1 below.

STUMPTOWN #3: Greg Rucka and Matthew Southworth’s Stumptown really heats up this issue. The twists and turns are picking up and the action is coming to a head. Grab the first two issues of this while we have them and pick #3 up when it comes out this Wednesday. I think you’ll agree, Dex Parios is one of the most well developed and likable characters in comics.

STAFF PICKS :: STUMPTOWN: THE CASE OF THE BABY IN THE VELVET CASE #1 :: SEPTEMBER 12, 2012

September 12, 2012 By: Rico Renzi Category: DISCUSS, Staff Picks

RICO’S PICK :: STUMPTOWN: THE CASE OF THE BABY IN THE VELVET CASE #1: If I don’t talk about the stuff I work on who will?! The first Stumptown series by Greg Rucka and Matthew Southworth was a really fun Rockford Files style detective story. I’m very happy to see Dex back for what is sure to be another wild ride. Full disclosure, I color this series so I may be biased. Full full disclosure, I agreed to color it because I loved the story Rucka and Southworth were telling.
