Well known in American comics fandom since the 1960’s for his vast comic book collection and fanzine writing & cartooning, Rosa became internationally famous starting in 1987 when he began writing and drawing “Uncle $crooge” and “Donald Duck” comics for various licensed publishers in Europe.  Just as they once were in America, Donald Duck comics (based on Carl Barks’ work) continue to be the best selling comic books in Europe and South America where the *weekly* Duck comics have been read by hundreds of millions of fans for over 60 years. This makes Rosa one of the world’s best known and most popular cartoonists, but still very easy to visit with at American shows where he can relax in “relative obscurity”. American comics fans are mostly familiar with his most famous and oft-reprinted work, the Eisner Award winning “Life and Times of $crooge McDuck” series.

Powerhouse artist Mike Zeck, renowned illustrator and storyteller, is making a rare and select series of appearances in 2015.

A heavy-hitter in the comics industry, and influencing generations of artists, one would have to argue which of Mike’s series has been the most influential, or which is embossed most deeply in our pop culture.

Zeck’s epic six part story Kraven’s Last Hunt, with J.M. Dematteis and Bob McLeod, springs immediately to mind. This groundbreaking series took the Spider-man character to a whole new level, and has been touted by readers as the "Greatest Spider-Man story of all time," in recent polls.

Considered one of "the" Punisher artists, Zeck’s work with writer Steven Grant on the character--collected as Circle of Blood--sets the standard for the look and feel of the Punisher and propelled him to flagship character status at Marvel. In fact, along with air-brush artist Phil Zimmelman, Mike has created some of the most recognizable painted images of the Punisher ever made.

The Limited Series Secret Wars, set the comic book readership on their ears, and brought a new black-and-white costume design for Spider-man (designed by Zeck) which is still recognizable and indelible to this day. Spider-man wore the costume temporarily, and it still lives on in the form of the super-villain, Venom.

In short, when you stop and think of the t-shirts sporting Zeck images, the homages to his covers, the lineage of his storytelling, you need a long sheet of paper to start writing them down.

Michael J. Zeck it seems, always knew he would work in the arts. Born in Pennsylvania and growing up in South Florida, he later attended the Ringling School of Art in Sarasota, Florida, his eye always on working in the sequential art field. He began that career at Charlton Comics with their animation-related line of comics leading to horror titles, later moving on to Marvel Comics. Some of his first work at Marvel included Master of Kung Fu and Captain America, with many more titles, at numerous companies, to follow from there.

Zeck’s work has graced the pages and covers of Aquaman, Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight, Green Lantern, G.I. Joe, G.I. Joe: Special Missions, Lobo, Deathstroke The Terminator, The Eliminator, and too many titles to mention here.

Zeck will be promoting his new art book Raw Fury: The Art of Michael J. Zeck at each of his appearances.

For more information on this appearance and Michael J. Zeck contact Eva Ink Artist Group at: evaink@aol.com.
