TIM BRADSTREET


Bradstreet entered the comic book industry in 1990, working with Tim Truman on Dragon Chiang.

Bradstreet's work on White Wolf Publishing's Vampire: The Masquerade garnered him much critical praise. This, in turn, led to the addition of many major comic book publishers to his clientele. He has since drawn for scores of comics-related projects including Dark Horse's Hard Looks and Another Chance to Get It Right (with author Andrew Vachss), Star Wars, Clive Barker's Age of Desire, Marvel's The Punisher and Blade, and Vertigo's Gangland, Unknown Soldier, Human Target, and Hellblazer.

Bradstreet's work has also extended to games of many types. His work on role-playing games has included GDW’s Twilight 2000 and FASA's Shadowrun. He has involved in art design for the Activision's Vampire: Bloodlines video game. He illustrated cards in Last Unicorn Games' CCG Heresy: Kingdom Come.

Bradstreet was awarded the 1996 International Horror Guild Award for Best Artist. He was also nominated for a 2005 IHG Award for his Hellblazer covers. Bradstreet has also been nominated for the 2002 Best Cover Artist Eisner Award for his Hellblazer covers.

In 2000, he joined director Guillermo del Toro as a conceptual artist helping work on the visual design for the film Blade II. In 2003, Bradstreet worked on a number of movie posters for the Marvel/Lions Gate film, The Punisher as well as the cover for The Punisher: Countdown mini-comic that was packaged with the original DVD release. In 2006 Bradstreet provided artwork for a black and white stop motion animated scene set in Kuwait for the extended cut DVD. Bradstreet has also done posters for the films - Punisher: War Zone, Dark Country, Give 'Em Hell, Malone, and I Melt with You. He has done a poster for the TV Series The Expanse.

Bradstreet was also the regular cover artist for two books, Marvel’s The Punisher and Vertigo/DC's Hellblazer. He has created over 70 covers for both books in the past five years.

In 2006, Bradstreet created the controversial album art for British heavy metal band Iron Maiden's album A Matter of Life and Death, which featured a mob of skeleton soldiers walking in front of a tank and features Eddie, the band's mascot at the top of the tank with a Thompson M1/M1A1 pointed up in the air. In 2016, he appeared on Brad Jones' Midnight Screenings to discuss the movie Why Him?.


ERIC ROBERTS

Eric Roberts is an American actor. His career began with a leading role in King of the Gypsies (1978), for which he received his first Golden Globe Award nomination. He was again recognized by the Golden Globes for his interpretation of Paul Snider in Bob Fosse's Star 80 (1983). Roberts' performance in Runaway Train (1985), as prison escapee Buck McGeehy, earned him a nomination for a third Golden Globe and a nomination for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor.

In a career spanning over 40 years, Roberts has amassed more than 500 credits, including Raggedy Man (1981), The Pope of Greenwich Village (1984), The Specialist (1994), Cecil B. Demented (2000), National Security (2003), A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints (2006), The Dark Knight (2008), The Expendables (2010) and Inherent Vice (2014). His equally varied television work includes three seasons with the sitcom Less than Perfect, as well as recurring roles on the NBC drama Heroes and the CBS soap opera The Young and the Restless, as well as Saved by the Light, the legal drama Suits, Fox's The Finder, and as The Master in the 1996 Doctor Who television movie.

His sisters Julia Roberts and Lisa Roberts Gillan, wife Eliza Roberts, and daughter Emma Roberts, also have acting careers.

Since the 1970s, he is the only actor in history to have more than 500 credits (blockbusters, independent films, animated films, TV series, animated series, short films and student films). And with Santa Rosa Comic Con he will be adding 1 more credit when he appears on Creature Features, filmed right here in Winsor.




BRENT ANDERSON

In His Own Words:
My professional career took off in 1979 with Ka-zar the Savage, written by Bruce Jones. The Marvel Graphic Novel X-Men "God Loves, Man Kills" followed. Since then I've had a part in creating a wide-ranging list of works, including the innovative cinematic comic, Somerset Holmes, again with Bruce Jones and April Campbell, the heroic space-opera, Strikeforce:Morituri, written by Peter Gillis, and the award-winning Astro City with Kurt Busiek. My more recent credits include J. Michael Straczynski's Rising Stars, Green Lantern: Legacy, with Bill Sienkiewicz, contributions to New 52 Action Comics #2, and a six-issue stint on the New 52 Phantom Stranger.

I'm pleased to see Astro City being published again, with the opportunity to revisit old characters, as well as create new ones in the world's ever-expanding pantheon. I'm also working on an original graphic novel, El Jaguár, involving a coyote, an immigrant smuggler, who escorts his clients through the land of the dead in their desperate gamble to be reborn into a better life. On a completely different note, I'm in the process of creating a newspaper strip, 'You Can't Always Get What You Want,' a comic look at the working class side of suburbia.

STEVE OLIFF

Oliff broke into professional comics by attending comic book conventions and meeting people. At one convention he met publisher Byron Preiss. Preiss gave Oliff his first major coloring job (on a Shadowjack story in The Illustrated Roger Zelazny). More work with Preiss's publications followed, including a job on a Howard Chaykin graphic novel, which in turn led to Oliff getting his first Marvel Comics' job, coloring Bill Sienkiewicz's first Moon Knight story in The Hulk! magazine. From there Oliff went on to color hundreds of titles in a variety of coloring formats.

In addition to coloring thousands of comic pages for all sorts of companies, Oliff has written two comic books, Armature and Armature: Darkpark and Lightworld, and is currently writing the third in his series. The Armature character first appeared in ads in Spawn and Youngblood comics, and in a back-up story in issue 14 of The Maxx. From 2003 to the present, Armature has been a weekly comic strip in Oliff's local newspaper, the Independent Coast Observer.

In 2005, Oliff collaborated with Cheri Carlstedt on a history of his hometown, Point Arena, California. The Early Days of Point Arena: A Pictorial History of the City and Township was published by Olyoptics. He also edits the Mendocino County Historical Society newsletter.

JON PROVOST

Jon Provost is a national treasure. The check shirt and jeans he wore for seven years as Timmy on "Lassie" hang in The Smithsonian next to Archie Bunker's chair. "Lassie" continues to air in 50 countries and Jon receives letters and email from fans of all ages around the world.

Jon was already a seasoned professional when he won the role of Timmy at age seven. He was not even three when cast as Jane Wyman and Sterling Hayden’s son in "So Big". During his career as a child actor and teen heart throb, he worked with some of the biggest stars in Hollywood: Grace Kelly and Bing Crosby in "The Country Girl", Natalie Wood and Robert Redford in "This Property is Condemned", Rod Steiger and Anita Ekberg in "Back From Eternity", Clint Eastwood in "Escapade in Japan", Kurt Russell in "The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes" and on television with Kim Novak, Jack Benny, James Garner and even with that famous talking horse, Mr. Ed.

By the time Jon Provost was nineteen, he'd worked in film and television for sixteen years. With a strong desire to try something new, he headed for Northern California and college. The beauty of the wine country seduced him and Jon never returned to L.A., preferring eventually to raise a family in Sonoma County. Of his many accomplishments, he is most proud of his children, Ryan and Katie; and he is over the moon about his 4-year-old granddaughter, Juliana.

Jon has also earned a nationwide reputation as a philanthropist, giving his time to: children's hospitals, animal shelters, and humane societies and, closest to his heart, Canine Companions for Independence, providing service dogs to the handicapped. He served on their Board of Governors for close to 25 years. And he's received many awards, among them, The Motion Picture Council's award for Outstanding Contribution as a Humanitarian for his dedication in helping the physically challenged, the Allen Ludden Humanitarian Award presented by Betty White and the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Youth in Film Association.

In 1990, Jon returned to television as Timmy all grown up in "The New Lassie" with Dee Wallace. He received a Genesis Award for Outstanding Television in a Family Series for a story he penned for the show focusing on the inhumane treatment of research animals. In recent years, Jon was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and added the internet to his resume, directing and hosting short videos about dogs and cats for a Purina website. 2008 marked Jon’s 50th anniversary as Timmy. He celebrated with the release of his autobiography, TIMMY'S IN THE WELL which he wrote with his wife, Hollywood writer Laurie Jacobson. He is currently writing a cookbook: TIMMY'S IN THE KITCHEN. Recently, Jon signed 4000 Timmy & Lassie photos for military K-9 teams currently serving our nation in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Still a sought-after celebrity guest, Jon appears at fund-raisers, comic cons, pet expos and special events throughout the year.

The company has launched 20 franchises (18 original and two licensed) in the industry's Top 10, seven at #1, a feat accomplished by no other publisher in the last two decades. Its flagship franchise, Witchblade, was TNT's #1 original film of 2000 and the subsequent TV series was released on DVD in, 2008. A feature film, co-produced by Platinum Studios, Inc. and Arclight Films, is slated to begin production in Australia. Witchblade is also the first American property to be fully adapted in Japan as an original anime and manga by Studio GONZO in 2006. Top Cow's other flagship property, The Darkness, was developed into a major next-generation video game release by Starbreeze and 2K Games and achieved platinum sales status.

JACK KATZ

Jack Katz is an American comic book artist and writer, painter and art teacher best known for his graphic novel, "The First Kingdom," a 24-issue epic he began during the era of underground comix. Katz began working for comic-book publishers in the 1940s, when he was only around 16 years of age, during the Golden Age of Comic Books. His career in commercial work is a veritable who’s who. Katz worked for Jerry Iger Studio, King Features, Standard Comics, Jack Kirby and Joe Simon’s Studio, Timely Comics, Fiction House, Warren, Skywald and DC. When Jack finally decided to go independent, he wrote, penciled and inked his opus, "The First Kingdom" initially with Comics & Comix Co. from 1974 to 1977 and then with Bud Plant, a Comics & Comix co-founder. The final 24th issue was published in 1986. A recently discovered series of letters between Jack Katz and Will Eisner indicates Katz may have been the originator of the "graphic novel," as a term and certainly in practice, even if his work was initially released in a serialized form. Two more installments were added to "The First Kingdom" when it was issued as a hardcover reprint in six volumes by Titan Publishing in 2013. Katz has just completed a 500 page follow up he calls "Beyond the Beyond."
