Colorist Bill Crabtree to make store appearance!


Harvey Award-nominated colorist Bill Crabtree will be making a store appearance in December!


Bill Crabtree began working in comics as a colorist in 2003. He has colored for Marvel, D.C., and Image Comics on such titles as "Firebreather", "Fantastic Four: Foes", and "Lobo Unbound". His work on INVINCIBLE, the title for which he is perhaps best known, has been nominated for both Harvey and CBG awards for best colorist. A Harrisburg native, Crabtree will be in the Mechanicsburg Comix Connection on Dec 30th from 1PM to 4PM to promote his current project "The Irredeemable Antman" from Marvel comics. Come on out and see how a real pro does it!

Hey Boss, great post! It is very cool to have Bill Crabtree appear at the shop again. If you were at his appearance at the Camp Hill store, You saw his demonstration on how to color comic pages on the computer. He actually was working on a splash page that appeared in "Fantastic Four: Foes" issue #2!

He is very knowledgeable about the process and willing to answer any questions any of you budding artist may have. So please stop in and I am sure he would be very happy to bend your ear, give you some art tips and maybe even do a free sketch for ya.

Oh, you mean the comic donation.

Right. Heh. Never mind.

Seriously, it's no big deal... if any of you out there need some comic books or whatnot donated to your classroom/school/library/charity/whatever, just let us know. We'll see what we can do!

(And thanks for the kind words, craigbox13... you are one of the Good Guys.
