Toronto Fan Expo (running from Friday to Sunday) and see my slideshow entitled "Steve Ditko and Bill Everett: Spider-Man, Sub-Mariner, Daredevil & Beyond". The hour-long presentation begins at 5pm in Room 103A and features tons of imagery and commentary related to my two new books Fire and Water: Bill Everett, the Sub-Mariner and the Birth of Marvel Comics (out in Sep) and Unexplored Worlds: The Steve Ditko Archives v2 (out in Oct).
I'll also have a table for the Friday and Saturday at the show - here's the seating plan and floor plan for the show. I'll have copies of my Strange & Stranger: The World of Steve Ditko and Strange Suspense: The Steve Ditko Archives v1 for sale that I'll be signing, or bring yours or any of my books to get them signed. I'll also have copies of my I Have To Live With This Guy! book and copies of the fanzine, Ditkomania, for sale.
Here's the promo blurb for my slideshow:
Steve Ditko and Bill Everett: Spider-Man, Sub-Mariner, Daredevil & Beyond
Two Marvel Comics giants join forces! Steve Ditko is the co-creator and original artist of the Amazing Spider-Man, and creator of Dr. Strange and Mr. A. The late Bill Everett created and was the original artist for the Sub-Mariner (the first anti-hero and mutant of the Marvel Universe), and co-created Daredevil.
Join author Blake Bell for a slide show presentation and discussion on his two upcoming books from Fantagraphics: Fire And Water: Bill Everett, The Sub-Mariner, and the Birth of Marvel Comics, and Unexplored Words: The Steve Ditko Archives v2.
