C2E2 attendees, don’t pass this one up. On March 19, from 6-8pm, Room 185bc will be transformed into Avengers Mansion, with every cover from the Hero Initiative’s “New Avengers 100 Project” on display. Top artists from around the industry were given blank covers of “New Avengers #1″ and told to sketch whatever they want. Take it from someone who has gotten to play with original covers from the Spider-Man, Hulk, Wolverine and Archie projects, they must be seen in person to truly be appreciated. $5 gets you in the door, mingling with some of the artists who drew the covers, and a raffle ticket to win a special New Avengers bottle of wine with sketches from the artists on it, with all the proceeds going to the Hero Initiative charity.
John McCrea, acclaimed artist and frequent Garth Ennis collaborator, will be making his first North American appearance in eight years at Chicago’s C2E2, March 18-20. The Irish born penciller, best know for co-creating DC’s Hitman, as well as runs on Judge Dredd, Spider-Man, Hulk and “The Boys: Herogasm,” will be appearing at the Hero Initiative booth, #457, throughout the convention. Unless you have a habit of attending comic book conventions overseas, this may be your first chance to talk to John about his 23 years in the comic book industry in almost a decade. Don’t miss the chance!
