Congratulations to Femme Noir co-creator Joe Staton and his collaborator Mike Curtis, on their second consecutive Harvey Award win, in the “Best Syndicated Strip or Panel” category, for their marvelous run on Dick Tracy!
Joe will be appearing at the Baltimore Comic-Con, September 5 -7. At the show, they’ll be distributing a Yearbook with art by the guests. Those artists with creator-owned characters were asked to draw them interacting with Matt Wagner’s character Grendel. This is Joe’s contribution, with colors by Matt Webb, pitting The Blonde against Hunter Rose among the rooftops of Port Nocturne.
I’d love to see this crossover become a reality… but only if Wagner writes it.
My only 2013 convention appearance will be at the Coast City Comic Con, in South Portland, Maine, the weekend of November 9th and 10th. It looks to be a surprisingly “big” show for this neck of the woods, with a bunch of notable comics guests – Mike Norton, Larry Hama, Ed McGuinness, Ben Templesmith, Erik Burnham and many others – and film/TV celebrities, including most of the Mystery Science Theater 3000 cast, and a reunion of actors from the 1984 cult film Savage Streets!
I’ll have a table in the artists alley and will have copies of my comics, graphic novels – including Femme Noir! – and prose anthologies on hand for purchase. I’ll try to have some Gravedigger and Perils On Planet X stuff there, too!
Hope to see some of you there!
Femme Noir artist/co-creator Joe Staton will be at the New York Comic Con this weekend (October 10-13), signing and sketching at artist’s alley table B-3. If you’re attending the show, be sure to stop by his table and let him know how much you enjoy Femme Noir – or any of his other many comics triumphs, including Batman, Green Lantern, The Huntress and the Harvey Award-winning Dick Tracy newspaper strip
