THE LEGENDARY GEORGE R.R. MARTIN SUPER HERO SERIES COMES TO MARVEL!
Spanning more than 25 novels, more than 20 short stories, released over three decades and written by more than 40 authors, the Wild Cards series tells the story of an alternate history in which the Earth is home to super-powered individuals. When a human is infected with the alien “Wild Card” virus, the odds are that they will be killed…which is referred to as “drawing the black queen.” Of those who survive, the bulk of them become “jokers,” left with some strange mutated form. A lucky few are called “aces,” those gifted with super-powers they can put to use toward heroes goals…or villainous ones. Now, for the first time in comic book form, see how the Wild Cards universe began with an adaptation of the very first stories in the original Wild Cards novel. Based on stories by Harold Waldrop, Roger Zelazny and series mastermind and editor, George R.R. Martin, Wild Cards is a stellar introduction to a whole new world reshaped by the emergence of superpowers.

Case, Deak-Linsner, Hawthorne, Linsner, and Rosa Return to Baltimore Comic-Con in 2022

Baltimore Comic Con 2022

Baltimore Comic-Con returns to the Inner Harbor at the Baltimore Convention Center this October 28-30. The Baltimore Comic-Con is happy to announce the return of comic artists and writers Richard Case, Kristina Deak-Linsner, Mike Hawthorne, Michael Joseph Linsner, and Don Rosa attending our 2022 event. Get your tickets now and avoid waiting in additional lines upon your arrival!

Richard Case has been drawing comics professionally for quite some time. In addition to illustrating Grant Morrison’s run on Doom Patrol, he has contributed to titles like Dr. StrangeSandmanShade the Changing ManSensational Spider-Man, and Batman ’66. Most recently, he worked with Peter Milligan on a modern-day adaptation of Edgar Allan Poe’s Fall of the House of Usher, wherein the House in question is the White House…

Artist, creative editor, writer, reference model, all-purpose Joe-wrangler at Linsner, and founder of lightisthenewdark art studios, Kristina Deak-Linsner has brought her years of fine art experience in the west coast gallery scene over to the house that Dawn built. After beginning her comics career at Dynamic Forces in the late 90’s, she now uses her keen eye to help guide all Linsner products and projects such as: Sin Boldly, the Dawn and Vampirella crossover series, as well as Linsner’s annual Dawn sketchbooks (2011 to present). The graphic novel Dawn and Vampirella brings her comics career full circle by working with Dynamite/Dynamic Forces once again. In 2018 she worked on the Vampirella series, Roses For The Dead.

Joseph Michael Linsner is most well-known for his creation Dawn, who first appeared in the self-published Cry for Dawn in 1989 and followed by numerous series at Sirius. He is also the creator of several other characters, including Sinful Suzi in Sin Boldly, released in December 2013 by Image Comics. He has worked on Dawn/Vampirella through Dynamite Entertainment, Justice League Quarterly and Harley Quinn at DC Comics, KillravenMystique, and Claws at Marvel Comics, and he drew the cover of the Image Comics one-shot Witchblade/The Punisher #1. Of late Linsner has provided covers for Dynamite Entertainment’s Jennifer BloodRed SonjaBettie Page & the Curse of the Banshee, Dejah Thoris vs. John Carter of MarsDIE!namite Lives!The Invincible Red Sonja, and Sonjaversal.

Mike Hawthorne has provided the artwork for various comics, including a record setting run on Deadpool as well as DaredevilSpider-ManHulkSuperman, and more. His work has been nominated for Harvey and Eisner Awards. Outside of comics, Mike has done storyboard and conceptual art for Epic Games, Marvel, Fox, Illumination, and Universal. Archaia/BOOM! Studios recently published his autobio-comic Happiness Will Follow.

Well known in American comics fandom since the 1960s for his vast comic book collection and comics fanzine activities, Don Rosa became internationally famous starting in 1987 when he began writing and drawing Uncle $crooge and Donald Duck comics for various licensed publishers in Europe. Just as they once were in America, Donald Duck comics (based on Carl Barks’ work) continue to be the best selling comics in Europe and South America where the weekly (!) Donald Duck comics have been read by hundreds of millions of fans for over 70 years. This makes Rosa one of the world’s best known cartoonists, but still very easy to visit with at American shows where he can relax in “relative obscurity”. American comics fans are mostly familiar with his most famous work, the Eisner Award winning Life and Times of $crooge McDuck series. But American fans can also now see his entire Duck comics career reprinted chronologically in the new Don Rosa Library from Fantagraphics. Rosa has quit producing new Duck comics due to several reasons, but he stays very busy with signing tours to Europe, visits to American comic cons, and his many hobbies including growing exotic chiles, of which he is even now probably giving away bags in the convention hall.
