OMAC Project. Jesus teamed with writer Greg Rucka on the mini series
that set up many of the events in DC’s hit event, INFINITE CRISIS. He
is working right now with Rucka on the OMAC Project Special, a big book
that will be published in march. Jesus will be the artist on the new
series that spins out of INFINITE CRISIS, CHECKMATE.
= AL BARRIONUEVO has been the ongoing artist on the Batman family book,
GOTHAM KNIGHTS, until the end. Al will be announcing his new “secret”
project at the signing.
– DANIEL ACUÑA is fast becoming one of the best cover artists in the
business. His artwork has adorned OUTSIDERS and JLA and will be seen
on the INFINITE CRISIS epilogue miniseries, THE BATTLE FOR BLÜDHAVEN.
However, he will be announcing a new project at JHU… one that will
see Daniel do interior art!
– RAMON BACHS is also a Batman family artist, having left his stamp on
no less than DETECTIVE COMICS. He has since moved to Marvel, recently
finished his work on the miniseries GENERATION M, and the only way
you’ll be able to find out what he’s doing after that is to come and
meet him at Hanley’s!
– JOHN LUCAS, though not from Spain, is an amazing inker from Texas
(now living in New York City). John inks Ramon on GENERATION M, but
has also done pencils in FOREVER MAELSTROM and PROJECT: SUPERIOR! This
is John’s second appearance at Hanley’s.
– Finally, inker BIT will be in attendance. While he has a short

COMICS, MAJESTIC and soon to be on NIGHTWING during DC’s One Year
Later. He’s also inking AL BARRIONUEVO on his new top secret project.
