Creator and illustrator Bernard Chang is perhaps best known for his vast and amazing work in the comic book industry, but he is also a sought after talent in entertainment design. He has illustrated a menagerie of books including Wonder Woman, Superman, Deadpool, Cable, and Supergirl – all of which have received critical acclaim. His current run on Green Lantern Corps for DC Comics has been called “fantastic, emotional art,” and we at NC Comicon couldn’t agree more! In his younger years, Bernard was captain of his high school basketball team and once won a championship by “going animal” when he actually transformed into a hoop-slaying werewolf. Nicknamed the “ChangWolf,” he was ultimately the inspiration for the hit film TeenWolf and appears in the final scenes of the film as a drunken transvestite.

NC Comicon welcomes fan favorite, Mitch Gerads! Gerads is an acclaimed illustrator and commercial artist who has illustrated a massive body of work, including such titles as Starborn, Doctor Who, Planet of the Apes and The Activity.  He is currently the series artist for Marvel’s Punisher which has been called “one of the best looking books on the racks today.” Gerads also moonlights as a “paid body dancer” which he says is “a man who dances with naked, diseased bodies at parties.” We don’t know about all that, but we’re sure happy to have one of our favorite artists back at the show!

NC Comicon is excited to welcome artist Stacey Lee on November 13-15 2015! Lee made her Marvel comic book debut in this year’s highly anticipated Spiderverse spin-off, Silk, and dazzled fans worldwide with her clean and dynamic style. Silk was a sell-out hit that immediately went into a second printing as critics gushed over the gorgeous art and the fun, engaging storyline. Lee has been called a “future superstar,” and we couldn’t be happier to have her here at the NC Comicon! In her earlier life, Lee was a self proclaimed “Beast-Hunter” and was responsible for the apprehension and ultimate demise of the B.K. Vampire, a freakish night-creature who lived in Burger King, and was known for draining the life from overweight patrons as well as spitting tiny, mouth-mangled pickles into the restaurant’s mop bucket.

Eisner Award winner Tony Harris is a veteran of the comic book industry and has worked for virtually every major publisher in the business. With a huge body of amazing work including legendary runs on Starman and Ex Machina, he is a convention favorite among attendees and fans worldwide. His recent series (with writer Steve Niles) Chin Music from Image Comics has been called “a ménage of striking visuals” with “gorgeously black and red soaked art.” Harris also once freed himself from being buried alive by chewing through the coffin lid that held him, then hunting down the perpetrators of the crime and skinning their legs off.

NC Comicon is proud to present legendary creator, Adam Hughes!

Hughes is most commonly known for his stylized renderings of women — super heroines, damsels in distress — all recognizably strong and elegantly drawn. His fan-favorite depictions of these heroines have graced the covers of several decades’ worth of hit comic books from an industry-wide variety of publishers including both Marvel and DC comics.

Hughes has worked on a plethora of multimedia projects including Top Cow’s Tomb Raider, Dark Horse’s Star Wars Legacy, designs for Zack Snyder’s Watchmen film, covers to DC Comics’ Catwoman, and assorted statue designs for Sideshow Collectibles and DC Direct, to name but a few of the highlights of the past handful of years. Hughes also published his first coffee table book in 2010, collecting his more than 20 years of artwork for DC Comics. Cover Run: The DC Comic Art of Adam Hughes debuted at number 2 on the New York Times Best Sellers list when it was released, and is currently in its third printing

Today Adam is best known as a cover artist who pencils, inks and colors his own work, using both traditional and digital mediums. We at the NC Comicon are massive fans and could not be more pleased to welcome Mr. Hughes to the show. Hughes is easily recognizable on the convention floor, as he has two cybernetic arms and is accompanied by a pack of well-armed elves he has dubbed “Daddy’s Little Grablins”. We encourage attendees NOT to feed the Grablins.

Cliff Chiang’s best-known works include Human Target, Zatanna, Green Arrow & Black Canary, Neil Young’s Greendale, and Doctor 13 (with Brian Azzarello), for DC Comics. He began his professional career as an assistant editor for Disney Adventures Magazine before joining the editorial staff of DC Comics’ Vertigo imprint. The Harvard University graduate then went freelance to pursue his dream of becoming an illustrator. He has since drawn stories for Dark Horse Comics, GQ Magazine, and the ACLU, in addition to numerous projects for DC and Vertigo. Cliff currently illustrates DC’sWonder Woman series for the New 52. Recently Chiang used lightning to give life to a freakish, sexual monster that he dubbed: the Fleshenstein. Once set free to roam the streets, the creature never returned to its master but is said to still abide by Chiang’s commands. The NC Comicon is proud to present Mr. Chiang as our honored guest and begs him not to summon Fleshenstein in November

Charlie also does a number of projects for the French publisher, Delcourt. Adlard was once kidnapped by a neighborhood cult nicknamed the “SkinFriends.” For what seemed like hours Adlard was forced to draw several single issue ‘scratch & touch’ books under the moniker, “Dr. SugerGoblin.”  These comic books are now worth over 500 million dollars and thirty cents.
