Appleseed Comic Con is brimming over with incredible talent for the 2015 installment of the local comics convention. Here are some highlights:
We announced last year that our spotlight guest artist is Jaime Hernandez. Hernandez is the award-winning co-creator of the beloved indie read Love and Rockets, and he occasionally lends his talent to DC Comics, The New Yorker, and album art like Los Lobos’ 2006 release The Town and the City. For more information on Jaime Hernandez, stop by the Hernandez brothers’ Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/hernandezbros.
Appleseed is also excited to host Mike Norton, Dave Wachter, Christopher Mitten, and Hilary Barta at this year’s show.
Mike Norton’s major claim to fame is his canine-loving web comic Battlepug, for which he won the Eisner Award for Best Digital Comic in 2012. He has also worked on Runaways, Revival, and Gravity. More on Mike Norton: http://www.ihatemike.com/
Those who love epic Westerns will want to check out Dave Wachter’s brilliant writing and illustration for The Guns of Shadow Valley—a web comic he started with Jim Clark. Wachter has also worked on scads of other projects like Godzilla, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and Breath of Bones: A Tale of the Golem. Dave Wachter’s blog: http://davedrawscomics.blogspot.com/
Fans of horror and science fiction comics will be eager for Christopher Mitten’s return to Appleseed. Christopher has worked 30 Days of Night, Umbral, and Criminal Macabre, as well as other popular series such as Fables and Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight.

Not to be outdone in either artistry or movie geekery, Hilary Barta returns for another year of Appleseed fun. Barta has contributed to numerous big name works, lending his talents to tales of Superman, The Simpsons, Wolverine, and more. Hilary Barta’s work: http://surlyhackattack.blogspot.com/
