Baltimore Comic-Con Welcomes Vertigo Creators Buckingham, Ennis, Lemire, Snyder, and Zullo
Garth Ennis broke into the American Comic scene in 1991, taking over the writing reins on Hellblazer. After a successful four-year run, Ennis moved on to create Preacher, a 66-issue epic that ran from 1995 -2000. In addition to these two ground-breaking series, he also had lengthy runs on DC’s The Demon and Hitman. Most recently, Ennis is preparing to wrap-up The Boys, a 72-issue story which began at DC’s Wildstorm imprint before moving to Dynamite Entertainment with issue #7.
Jeff Lemire made a name for himself after producing the Eisner and Harvey-nominated Essex County trilogy from Top Shelf Productions. In 2009, he wrote and drew The Nobody, a 144-page graphic novel published by DC’s Vertigo imprint. Currently, in addition to writing Justice League Dark and Animal Man for DC’s New 52, Lemire also is the writer/artist on Sweet Tooth, a monthly Vertigo series which began in 2009.
Scott Snyder made a huge impact on the comic industry last year with his ground-breaking work on the Harvey Award-winning Vertigo title, American Vampire. In addition to American Vampire (and it’s current spin-off mini-series, Lord of Nightmares), Snyder is also writing both Batman and Swamp Thing, and will be co-writing the upcoming series Talon, which spins off directly from his critically acclaimed “Court of Owls” storyline from Batman.
After being recognized by an editor at the DC Talent Search at San Diego Comic-Con 2008, Chrissie Zullo was offered the job of providing covers to the Fables spin-off mini-series, Cinderella: From Fabletown with Love. With a style that has been compared to that of Tara McPherson, Zullo quickly developed a strong fan following and she followed up with covers to the sequel, Cinderella: Fables are Forever, as well as interior pencils for both Madame Xanadu #26 and Fables #100.
