Lee Roy Lopez

And Lee Roy Lopez is just one of several creators... That are going to be exhibiting at S.P.A.C.E. this upcoming weekend!

So for those of you that don't know what 'S.P.A.C.E.' is all about... it is the 'Small Press and Alternative Comics Expo',  which is held each year in Columbus, Ohio.  This year it is celebrating its' 10th Year!  The event is organized by Bob Corby of Back Porch Comics.

Several of my Facebook Friends have told me that it has grown in size over the years since it first started, and has become one of the best shows for finding comic book creators all in one place, without all the 'mainstream distractions' that are seen at major conventions.

Plus for those that are not comic book writers, pencillers, inkers, etc., this is the show where you will find... "the old school zinesters, mini-comic makers, and lots and lots of the up-and-coming indies, all under one roof"!

I'm centering on just one comic book creator right now for this blog post, and that is Lee Roy Lopez.

Lee Roy is currently the penciller for "Into The Dark". Here is his 'bio' in his own words:  

"I've been with Speak Easy around the same time as Nathan Baker since early '08. Best group of talent ive been lucky enough to work with. This is the 2nd comic ive drawn the 1st still unpublished "Young Vindicators" with Ken Stutsman."

"Im a Muslim of Puerto Rican descent born and raised in Brooklyn, East New York but ive been living in Lakewood, Ohio for the past 5 years. You can catch my artwork on Facebook, myspace.com/lafamilialopez4 or comicspace.com/allpencils . Im looking forward to see everyone at Columbus."

Lee Roy mentions his work on "Into The Dark" which is also shown above at the top of this post.  Here are the details on this project:

Into the Dark - Ashcan edition

Created by Nathaniel Baker
Cover by Lee Roy Lopez & David Marshall
Pencils by Lee Roy Lopez
Inks by Roger Price
Written by Nathaniel Baker
Lettered by David Marshall

Welcome to Woodrow Asylum

Story One: Into the Dark

Into the Dark is a horror/suspense story that follows Kaleb Grey. Kaleb is your everyday under appreciated father, husband, fellow employee, and human being. Unbeknownst to him however he’s also something else. As the worst day plays out in front of him a minor lapse in time brings him to a room locked away from the world. What happened? How did I get here? Is this real? Am I going crazy? As Kaleb faces nightmares in every form, he must also face the truth that’s hidden somewhere deep in the darkness, maybe even his mind. So many questions, so little light...!

Thanks Lee Roy for bringing your project to my attention!  For those not able to attend the Expo, you can see more at his web site at: http://www.comicspace.com/allpencils

Besides Lee Roy Lopez attending this Expo, the following are others that will be exhibiting there.  I've added on a few more since my last blog about this show:

Marek Bennett, Doc Boucher, David Branstetter, Tim Broderick, Karen Chen, J.D. Elder, Tomm Gabbard, Howie Noeldechen, Randy Pare, Jonathan Hodges with Bad Place Productions, D Jason Meadows with Lead Slinger Studios, Bryan Borgman, Pat Lewis, Troy Boyle, and Bob Corby. 

Matter of fact, Troy Boyle just messaged me that he will have an artist's table at SPACE. He's at table #49 and will be doing sketches for free plus giving away tear sheets for his two upcoming comics from Dimestore - PINNACLE, and EARTHMAN!

Others attending but I'm not sure are exhibiting are: JK Carrier, Ian Shires, Brent Erwin, Allen Freeman, Carrie Cartwright, Matt Feazell, Darrell Goza, Tim Corrigan, Bruce Rosenberger, Heather Farr, and Molly Durst.
