Official Press Release
Columbus, OH – May 3, 2010 – We are thrilled to name superstar artist David Finch as guest of honor at Mid-Ohio-Con 2010, our very first guest announcement for the 30th anniversary show. Finch has been dazzling comic fans for more than 15 years since he debuted his unique style in the pages of Image’s hit title, Cyberforce. Finch is perhaps best known for his lengthy run at Marvel, during which he captivated audiences with his riveting work on Avengers: Disassembled, Moon Knight, New Avengers, Ultimate X-Men, Ultimatum and many other titles.
Finch made headlines in January 2010 with the announcement of his exclusive contract with DC Comics, which Comic Book Resources (CBR) described as a “truly seismic shift in the marquee creator's career path.” "I've been a DC fan for a really long time, and I always knew that I'd love the opportunity to work in the DCU at some point," Finch told CBR in his first interview on his new deal. Finch is slated to illustrate all 26 of DC's bi-weekly Brightest Day covers and fans are eagerly awaiting news of his other projects within the DC universe and beyond.
Now entering its 30th year, Mid-Ohio-Con is one of America's longest-running and most successful comic book and pop culture conventions. Each year, Mid-Ohio-Con brings fans of all ages together with leading comic book writers and artists, film and television creators and stars, as well as publishers and retailers from across the nation. Mid-Ohio-Con 2010 will be held on November 6-7 at the Greater Columbus Convention Center in Columbus, Ohio. For more information on Mid-Ohio-Con 2010, visit us online at www.midohiocon.com.
