2018 SPECIAL GUEST'S
MARK "TEX" TEXEIRA

Mark Texeira was born and raised in New York City. He attended Manhattan's High School of Art and Design, and was granted a Presidential Scholarship at the School of Visual Arts, where he attended for two years before dropping out to pursue a freelance commercial art career. During this period, Texeira took classes at the Art Students League. His oil paintings soon won mentions at the Salmagundi Club and the Society of Illustrators.
Comics titles Texeira has contributed to include Masters Of The Universe, DC Power Lords, Jonah Hex and its spinoff Hex , Psi-Force, The Punisher War Journal, Ghost Rider vol. 2 and vol. 5, Wolverine vol. 2, Sabretooth, Spider-Man: Legacy of Evil, Black Panther vol. 3, Moon Knight vol. 4, Vampirella, Cyclops, Hercules vol. 4 and Wolverine vol. 3. His last job was the classic "Yosemite Sam/Jonah Hex" by DC Comics.




BRENT ANDERSON
Brent Anderson was born in San Jose, California. His favorite comics were Archie, Stumbo the Giant, Hot Stuff, and Dennis the Menace. Inspired by Marvel and DC Comics almost fifty years ago, he began writing and drawing his own comics on school binder paper, creating dozens of characters that included Radium the Robot, Benji the Barbarian and Spaceman Grimmley.
He became a professional in 1979. Ka-zar the Savage was his first regular series, followed by the Marvel Graphic Novel "X-Men "God Loves, Man Kills," (1982) the innovative cinematic comic, Somerset Holmes (1984); the heroic space-opera, Strikeforce: Morituri (1987) and the award-winning Astro City (1995 to present.)
He is currently working on 'El Jaguár: Origins' in collaboration with his wife Shirley Johnston. "Creating comics characters and telling stories about them is fun but challenging. Each character is a part of who I am as a person, and the most challenging aspect of character creation is the ability to honestly tap into a particular personality trait that defines them. As I get to know each character and they become more real, I develop a deep affection for them. At the end of a story or series, when it's time to say "good-bye" it is often a painful experience. Illustrating a story like 'El Jaguár: Origins' that is outside my cultural experience is even more fun and doubly challenging; finding a piece of myself to impart to a horrid water demon from South Central Mexico has been particularly challenging!"

TONY FLEECS

Fan favorite Tony Fleecs is currently hard at work writing and drawing MY LITTLE PONY comics for IDW Publishing. He's also a prolific cover artist on everything from Ponies to Turtles, Grumpy Cats to samurai, the world's cutest dog, warrior princesses, vampires, Santa Claus and almost everything in between. He lives and works in North Hollywood, CA. His mother says he is handsome.
