Hero’s guests include:
Matthew Clark, artist of Justice League and Amazing Spider-Man

Fabian Nicieza, writer of X-Men and Deadpool co-creator
Ann Nocenti, writer of Daredevil and Catwoman

Matthew Clark started his career in 1997 drawing backgrounds and inking other artists. His break came in 1999 when he was the monthly artist on DC’s Wonder Woman for a year, a character he’s returned to from time to time throughout the years, most notably on Wonder Woman Rebirth Special.
Scott Dunbier is a former comic book art dealer from New York. In 1995, he relocated to San Diego to work at Jim Lee’s WildStorm Productions. He soon became special projects editor and then Editor-in-Chief. He moved over to IDW Publishing in 2008 as Director of Special Projects and has been there ever since. Aside from working with many of the best creators in comics, he created the Absolute format, as well as originating Artist’s Editions.
Fabian Nicieza is a writer best known for his comic book work and as the co-creator of Marvel’s billion-dollar Deadpool franchise. He has written over a thousand comics for Marvel and DC and others, including Avengers, X-Men, Spider-Man, Justice League, Superman, and Batman, which have sold over 100 million copies worldwide.
Ann Nocenti is a storyteller who has worked in film, journalism and comics. She was an editor and writer at Marvel Comics (Daredevil, Spider-Man, X-Men, and more), and at DC (Catwoman, Klarion). Her latest works are the graphic novels Ruby Falls (2020) with artist Flavia Biondi and The Seeds (2021) with artist David Aja, both for Berger Books/Dark Horse, and upcoming projects for Marvel.
Ann Nocenti will be appearing Friday and Saturday, October 28-29 only.
Richard Pace resides in Toronto, Canada, looking down upon the Americans to the south with moments of both humor and dread. From this perch, he has deployed his illustration skills on titles for Vertigo and Marvel, has also co-written Dale Keown’s Pitt and Batman: The Doom That Came to Gotham, and is the co-creator, with Mark Russell, of the hit indie AHOY Comics series Second Coming.
Dexter Vines was born and raised in Atlanta GA and is one of comics most prolific and well-respected artist inkers in the business with over 25 years of experience. Dexter has worked for almost every major comic publisher over his long career. Having worked on some of the biggest projects from Superman/Batman, Civil War, and Wolverine: Old Man Logan, Dexter is still going strong with no end in sight. Recent projects include Crime Syndicate and Task Force Z for DC Comics, and Eve Online for Dark Horse.

It’s Parasite Season for Green Arrow. The Emerald Archer must hunt down the power-sapping purple powerhouse-alone, in a maximum-security prison, running low on arrows-and after the tapeworm terror has feasted on a buffet full of metahuman criminals. Prison reform, Ollie? You shoot arrows in people; that’s straight up medieval!
