CALGARY (660 NEWS) – There is never a shortage of things to do at the Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo, even though this year is dubbed the ‘limited edition’ version, which means only a fraction of the usual tickets got there. been sold.
Every year, nerds and geeks of all shapes and sizes come out for billboards, celebrities, artist aisles, vendors, and cosplay, but it’s the comic book artists who are the heart of the show.
I had the chance to catch up with a few, starting with the legendary Joe Rubenstein:
Josef “Joe” Rubinstein was born in Germany in 1958. He is a Hall of Fame comic book artist whose career spans more than four decades.
Some notable credits include the acclaimed 1982 Wolverine miniseries, the Infinity Gauntlet series, and the official Marvel Universe Handbook.
Joe’s record-breaking Marvel Comics post saw him ink more pencils than any other inker in history (and over 2,500 comics).
Scott Hepburn, of Toronto, is a prominent cartoonist based in Canada.
Hepburn is best known for the Marvel comic series Deadpool, Spider-Man / Deadpool and Drax.
Other titles in his career include Detective Comics, Flash, Powerman and Ironfist, Nova, and Star Wars: Clone Wars.
