Brett Breeding, Kevin Cuffe, Bob Frantz, Adriana Melo, Khoi Pham, and Billy Tucci Head to Baltimore Comic Con

The Baltimore Comic-Con returns to the Inner Harbor this October 28-30 at the Baltimore Convention Center. The Baltimore Comic-Con welcomes comics creators Brett Breeding, Kevin Cuffe, Bob Frantz, Adriana Melo, Khoi Pham, and Billy Tucci to the 2022 event. Tickets can be purchased online now.

Brett Breeding has enjoyed more than forty years as a comic book artist, illustrating and creating characters for Marvel and DC Comics. Primarily known for his finished inks over pencilers George Perez, Ron Frenz, Kerry Gammill, and Dan Jurgens, Brett has also done penciling, and traditional and computer coloring, as well as story development and plotting. He is a co-creator of DC Comics characters Doomsday, Blaze, Lord Satanus, and Shadowdragon. Brett has worked on many titles for Marvel and DC Comics, but is most recognized for his work on the Superman titles, notably the “Death of Superman” storyline, as well as the Spider-Man titles, The Mighty ThorThe Avengers, and West Coast Avengers. While working on Thor #390 with Ron Frenz, Brett originated the idea that Steve Rogers would be worthy to wield Thor’s hammer Mjolnir, and Ron and writer Tom DeFalco made it a key part of the story. Over 30 years later, Brett’s idea would be immortalized on the big screen as a key moment in Marvel’s Avengers: Endgame. Brett’s recent works include licensing art for DC and Warner Brothers Consumer Products along with children’s books and digital interactive iPad apps featuring Superman and Batman for WB Global Publishing.
