Hounded #1: Page 20
This week I'm going to take a break from our usual Hounded Comic Blog format. Instead, I'm going to geek out a little bit (big change, huh?) and talk about the upcoming comic expo, Stan Lee's Comikaze.
I'll be driving down to LA and spending three glorious days taking in all the excitement. This will be my first expo ever, and as a life long comic fan, I can say I'm truly geeking out over this one.
Have you checked out the "guests of honor" list? 3 of the 7 founding members of Image comics will be there, Whilce Portacio, Rob Liefield and Marc Silvestri! Growing up, I was a huge fan of Image comics. Spawn, Witchblade, Darkness, loved them all. But, most of all I loved the brazenness of those 7 guys who got sick of Marvel and decided to strike it out on their own, to huge success.
On top of that, Marc Silvestri is my favorite comic artist. Ever. No one else draws like him, and you can easily pick out a Marc Silvestri cover out of a crowded store.
Oh, and J. Scott Campbell will be there too! His work on Spiderman was just amazing. And if you're in the mood for a silly, sexy, over-the-top kind of read, you have to check out Danger Girl.
Apart from comic book royalty, some iconic actors like Adam West, Burt Ward, and Julie Newmar, Jewel Staite (you know, Kaylee from Firefly) and James Hong. Throw in some Game of Thrones actors, and I'm in heaven.
And did I mention who else is going to be there? This guy!
