Alright... I gotta admit... as an ex-Marvel Zombie, I can't help but get excited at seeing the Hulk vs Thing match-up at the top left of this blog post...
Which is what artist Steve Scott's agent, Renee Witterstaetter, got my attention on, what with her Press Release about Steve exhibiting at the Mini MegaCon this weekend!
Renee sent the above two pics and a couple more of Steve's works to me along with the press release. The fact is... The Thing is my favorite comic book character of all time, and when someone can do him justice like Steve did above... well, I'll take a look at what else there is for possible mention!
The following are excerpts from the Press Release:
Orlando, Florida--Mini MegaCon is shaping up to be one BIG show August 22nd-23rd, with X-Men Forever artist Steve Scott also now slated to be at the event, joining a line-up of tremendous talent.
Steve's work can currently be seen on the best-selling "X-Men Forever" series with writer Chris Claremont. Not to mention that Steve is the ONLY artist tapped by DC Comics to do work relating to "Batman Forever," depicting the now legendary turn of Heath Ledger as The Joker. Look for Steve's work in the Blue-Ray disc release of the movie!
Steve is no stranger to media tie-in's. His work is often seen on the television show Smallville and in other special projects for DC Comics, as well as his pencil work for the recent "Indiana Jones--Tomb of the Gods," comic book series for Dark Horse to tie-in with the most recent hit Harrison Ford movie! (In fact, George Lucas liked Steve's work so much that he purchased most of the originals to keep for himself! )
Beginning his comics career at Malibu Comics with his wildly popular stint on "Razor" for London Night, as well as "New Warriors," "Hourman," and "JLA" for Marvel and DC, Steve's pencils have also appeared in the pages of "Shadowpact," "The Creeper" with writer Steve Niles, "Batman Legends of the Dark Knight," and "Checkmate." He got a particularly special kick out of bringing to life some of DC Comics strangest characters like Detective Chimp, Rex the Wonder Dog, Rag Man, The Phantom Stranger and many others.
Recent and current projects at Marvel Comics, and DC Comics include working with industry legends Louise Simonson and Chris Claremont on the titles "Magik" and "Exiles," the "Marvel Adventures" line featuring Fantastic Four, Avengers, and the Hulk, work on "She-Hulk," and a Kyle XY one shot for Disney/ABC with writer Jeff Parker.
In other words, he's busy making comics, which is a good thing for his ever growing number of fans.
Recently returned from a signing tour in Belgium, France and the Netherlands, look for more of Steve's work in "X-Men Forever," as well as some surprises to be announced soon! Steve Scott will be available both days of Mini MegaCon for signing and sketching. Saturday 10 am to 7 pm and Sunday 10 am to 5 pm.
My thanks to Renee for sending this to my attention!

CONVENTION PHOTO: I have been posting convention photos of costumed attendees for a while now in this blog. Today I'm going to post something else that catches either my or Tina's eyes when attending a comic con. That would be one of the many posters or banners that are hung up for all to be aware of upcoming projects, either on film or TV. We are both big fans of the '24' Fox TV Show, and we both saw this banner at the same time while at the 2009 San Diego Comic Con International! '24' is ONE Show we will NOT tape... It has to be seen 'live'!
