The list of comic book luminaries appearing at this year’s Long Beach Comic & Horror Con continues to grow as Industry pioneer Jimmy Palmiotti joins the ranks of this year’s special guests for the event which will take place November 3-4 at the Long Beach Convention Center.
The award-winning creator, writer and inker has his hands in several top series, with current work including DC’s Ame-Comi web series, Creator-Owned Heroes and Queen Crab. Some past projects include Jonah Hex, Punisher, Monolith, Hawkman and The New West, which is being adapted into a movie by New Regency with Len Wiseman (Total Recall, Underworld) producing. Palmiotti also formed Paperfilms, a production company that has amassed a number of highly-anticipated projects including the Painkiller Jane TV series, which aired on SyFy and the 3D fighting game, Injustice: Gods Among Us, a game slated for a 2013 release on the Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and Wii U. From the creators behind Mortal Kombat: DC Universe, Injustice pits DC’s top heroes and villains – including Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Harley Quinn and Solomon Grundy – in an all or nothing brawl.
Through his collaboration with Image Comics on the critically-acclaimed new series, Creator-Owned Heroes, Palmiotti is part of an industry wide expansion of creator owned and controlled projects. The Creator-Owned series introduces fans to the most vibrant and original work from some of the comic book world’s top imaginations. The first six issues feature stories written by Palmiotti and Justin Gray (Trigger Girl 6), Steve Niles (American Muscle) with art by Phil Noto (Trigger Girl 6) and Kevin Mellon (American Muscle). The issues also share exclusive interviews from Neil Gaiman, Mark Waid, Scott Morse and Amanda Conner.
“The Long Beach Comic & Horror Con is one of my favorite shows to meet and greet the fans,” said Palmiotti. “I have not missed a single show and it’s been great to watch it grow year after year into one of the top conventions in the country. I wouldn’t miss it for the world.”
At the Long Beach Comic & Horror, fans will have the opportunity to go behind the headlines for the most comprehensive information involving Jimmy Palmiotti and each of the comic stars appearing at the 2-day event.
The convention floor hours are 10:00am to 7:00pm on Saturday November 3 and 10:00am to 5:00pm on Sunday November 4.
