Joe is the artist & co-creator of Morning Glories, the Eisner-nominated & NY Times Bestselling comic from Image Comics. Also worked for IDW and Boom! Studios 

So what is Morning Glories about?

Morning Glories is described by writer Nick Spencer as “Runaways meets Lost,” the series focuses on six “brilliant but troubled” new recruits at Morning Glory Academy, a prestigious prep school hiding “sinister and deadly” secrets. Interior art is done by Joe Eisma and cover art by Rodin Esquejo. Morning Glories debuted on August 2010. 

We are thrilled to have Joe in Tucson, so lets give him a warm welcome when we see him.

You can follow him on twitter @Supajoe

We intend to clean up a lot of issues we had this year in result of our growing pains, but I guarantee you that if you are thinking it we already have it on our list of things to fix! This being from the attendees and exhibitors point of view, all of it.

Our first Annual costume contest was an even bigger success then everyone anticipated thanks to our CosPlay Coordinator Dustin Dial and our amazing panel of judges and volunteers! They raised a lot of toys for the holiday charities while doing what they love and hopefully inspiring some future CosPlayers. I consider the form of creating and embodying a hero or villain along with pouring your blood,sweat  & tears (literally) into something that everyone can enjoy a work of art! I still find myself in my early 30′s wanting to take that picture with Spider Man. You will […]
