Phoenix Comic Con : Mark Texeira Blazes into Phoenix

Renowned Ghost Rider and MoonKnight Artist Makes First Appearance!

Phoenix–Phoenix is Hot, sure… but it just got even hotter! It’s just been announced that fan fave Ghost Rider and MoonKnight artist Mark Texeira will be making his first appearance in the area at the Phoenix Comic Con!

Born and bred in New York City, amongst the concrete jungle and the confines of steel, Mark Texeira was always an artist that found himself indoors more often than not, as a child, escaping via his imagination and drawing pictures as entertainment, taking him to locals far beyond the skyscrapers around him.

It wasn’t long before his signature oil painting style sparked cover assignments for books, magazines and record albums involving such properties as Remo Williams, Buckaroo Banzai and Public Enemy.

Some of his continuing clients include:  New York Magazine; Scholastic Books; MCI Records; Def Jam Records; Marvel Entertainment; D.C. Publications; Harris Publications; Wizards Of The Coast; Wizard Magazine; Image Publications; Black Bull Entertainment; Continuity Associates; and Fleer/Skybox International.

And, breaking news for Tex fans: A mammoth art retrospective on the painter is currently in the works from Vanguard Productions!

Living in upstate New York, Mark Texeira is one artist not afraid to burn the midnight oil, and often does.  You no doubt know him currently from that amazing Ghost Rider and Moonknight work, as well the recent cover of Maxim Magazine,  all showcasing the signature fine-art Texeira style.

And, he won’t be takin’ it easy at the Phoenix Comic Con either!  To showcase his first ever appearance at the show, join Mark at these following times:

Sat: 1-2–Southwest Quick Draw Showdown! Featuring David Finch, Michael Golden, Mark, Whilce Portacio, Tony Parker, Ed McGuinness and Ben Glendenning

Sat: 7-8–PCC Presents Mark Texeira and Whilce Portacio  Q&A

Sun: 5-6–The Con wrap-up, featuring some of your favorite artists!

The Phoenix Comic Con runs January 25-27 in Phoenix Arizona at the Mesa Convention Center,  and features such stellar guests as Howard Chaykin, Michael Golden, Steve Rude,  Matt Wagner, and many more. For more information, visit:
