2019 SPECIAL GUEST'S

Star of the Classic TV show (and the new CW TV Show)


JOHN WESLEY SHIPP

John Wesley Shipp is an American actor known for his various television roles. He played the lead Barry Allen on CBS's superhero series The Flash from 1990 to 1991, and Mitch Leery, the title character's father, on the drama series Dawson's Creek from 1998 to 2001. Shipp has also played several roles in daytime soap operas including Kelly Nelson on Guiding Light from 1980 to 1984, and Douglas Cummings on As the World Turns from 1985 to 1986 (which earned him his first Daytime Emmy Award). He portrays both Barry Allen's father, Henry Allen, and Jay Garrick/Flash on the current The Flash series on The CW network.
ART ADAMS
Arthur Adams, a self-taught artist, became a fan favorite when, at the age of 19, he left his job making pizzas for the masses to pencil the critically-acclaimed Longshot limited series, written by Ann Nocenti and published in 1985 by Marvel Comics. He has been in high demand as an artist since.

Adams' highly distinctive and detailed artwork gained him considerable popularity amongst fans and editors, if not his inkers, and he's enjoyed being a cover artist, and the artist and sometime writer for miniseries, specials, and annuals. These days, in order to spare inkers the pain, his work is largely shot directly from pencils or inked by himself, with some exceptions.

In his career, Arthur has worked on many titles, Batman, Superman, Spiderman, X men, Godzilla, Vampirella, Rocketeer, the Authority, Danger Girl, Excalibur, and the Hulk, to name a few. He also launched his creator owned, written, and drawn series Monkeyman and O'Brian in 1993 with Dark Horse Comics "Legend" imprint. He also had a ten-issue run on an anthology series featuring the character Jonnie Future. The eight page Jonnie Future stories appeared in Tom Strong's Terrific Tales (2002-2004). More recently, Arthur has been working on Ultimate X for Marvel Comics with writer Jeph Loeb, and issue one launched in 2010.

Adams has provided cover images for issues of the Justice League of America, Appleseed, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Green Lantern, Hulk, Avengers, X Men, Red Sonja, Superman, Batman, and Vampirella, among other titles. In addition to his work in comic books, he has also produced popular commercial art, such as numerous illustrations for trading cards, posters, shirts, and various other comics-related merchandise. Outside the field of comics, he has also provided illustrations for various magazines, movies, video games, and worked in toy design, packaging art, and even a series of X-Men-themed Campbell Soup cans.

Arthur lives in Northern California in the woods somewhere, like his hero, Bigfoot. When told he should have a "Web" site he went outside and tried to spin his own web. It was funny and sad all at once. We got him back inside and gave him his medicine.

LIAM SHARP

Liam Sharp made his comic debut in the 1980s illustrating for the famous science-fiction magazine 2000 AD. His fame increased dramatically when he began working mainly in the United States on books including Superman and Batman for DC Comics, X-Men, Hulk and Spider-Man for Marvel Comics as well as Spawn: The Dark Ages for Todd McFarlane. He recently created the WildStorm series THE POSSESSED with writer Geoff Johns. Sharp is currently the artist on the monthly series TESTAMENT written by Douglas Rushkoff. Currently he has worked on some Amazing DC Tilte starting with "Wonder Woman" with writer Greg Rucka. Then a 6 issue run on Brave & Bold, and now on the #1 DC comic... Green Lantern with acclaimed writer Grant Morrison.
JOYCE CHIN
Joyce Chin is a comic book penciler, inker, colorist, and cover artist. She has created content under the Marvel, DC, Dynamite, Image Comics, Top Cow, Malibu, Chaos! Comics, Dark Horse Comics, Hero Initiative, Zenescope Entertainment, Black Bull, Wildstorm, Harris Comics, Topps Comics, and IDW Publishing labels. A large portion of Chin's work has been in creating comic book covers.

Chin's early work with DC began with Guy Gardner Warrior. She later progressed to work on a number of variant covers, mini-series, and special projects, including Xena: Warrior Princess, Vampirella, Tomb Raider, Red Sonja, and Wynonna Earp, among others. Her collaborations include work alongside her husband Arthur Adams, comic writer Gail Simone, and frequent cover art projects with Ivan Nunes.

Joyce's work on Vampirella has been described as similar in style to that seen in Mucha paintings. Her depictions of superheroes and warriors has been grounded in her belief that costumes need to match the attitude of the characters wearing them. Joyce has worked on several variant covers featuring only her penciling (inked black or red).

Joyce Chin received an Inkpot Award at Comic-Con International in 2017
