Best known for his popular Star Wars cover variants, John will be meeting fans at the International Comic Expo (ICE) held at the Birmingham Conference and Exhibition Centre on September 9th.
John Tyler Christopher is a Harvey Award nominated comics illustrator from Lafayette, Indiana, USA. His unmistakable painting style has also graced the covers of Marvel’s Avengers Solo: Hawkeye, Figment, New Mutants, Annihilators: Earthfall, Dark Avengers, Spider-Man, Venom; and the 50th Anniversary Spider-man Encyclopaedia.
His earlier work can also be seen on covers for Top Cow’s Witchblade and Artifacts as well as DC’s Voodoo.
Outside of comics, his work has also featured in both table-top and video games, as well as film and television. He enjoys spending time with his wife and daughters and waxing intellectually about the sheer awesomeness of the Gorn.
He’ll be joining such comics talent as Dan Slott (Spider-Man), John Bolton, Freddie E Williams II (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) and Will Sliney (Spider-Man 2099).
Event director Shane Chebsey said: “ICE has always strived to bring UK fans comic creators they don’t see at conventions every year and thanks to a case of perfect timing we can now offer fans a unique experience at this year’s show”.
The event is incredibly popular and fans are encouraged to book their tickets in advance as there is limited space! Tickets are available from http://www.internationlcomicexpo.wordpress.com/.
