Adam Hughes will be at Cards, Comics & Collectibles on Wednesday, December 26, 2018 from 3:30 to 6:30 PM! A long-time friend and recurring guest of the Baltimore Comic-Con, Adam is the artist on Marvel’s Fantastic Four being released that Wednesday, which will feature the wedding of Ben Grimm and Alicia Masters.
From Marvel’s solicitation for this issue: The wedding that’s been years in the making…Ben and Alicia say “I do!” No bait. No switch. Not a dream. Not a hoax. And we swear, not a single Skrull around. This is really happening! From the book that brought you the first, best and longest running super hero marriage in comics, we give you…the wedding of Ben Grimm and Alicia Masters! Featuring an untold tale of the courtship of Ben and Alicia. A bachelor party that only Johnny Storm could throw. And a very special ceremony brought to you in the Mighty Marvel Manner.
As far as cover artists working in comics today, Adam Hughes is among the very best. A 12-year veteran of Gaijin Studios, Hughes is most widely recognized for his pin-up style renditions of female characters, especially over the course of his long runs as cover artist on Wonder Woman and Catwoman. His most recent work includes covers for Superman, Red Sonja/Tarzan, and Captain America. Hughes is a multiple Harvey and Eisner Award winner for Best Cover Artist.
“Adam is an amazing artist,” said Marc Nathan, owner of Cards, Comics & Collectibles. “We are incredibly lucky to have him at the store on the day of this momentous issue’s release!”
Adam will sign the first 10 autographs for free if they are bought in the store. Other items or items beyond the ten purchased in-store are $5 each.Nov. 17, 2018: Local Comic Shop Day
