‘Spider-Man’ artist Alex Saviuk confirmed for Tampa Comic show
Alex Saviuk is a comic book convention favorite for several reasons.
First, Saviuk has drawn Spidey is some format for decades. ‘Spider-Man’ fans come in all ages, sizes and can be rabid. Second, he is a straight shooter to fans’ questions, working in the industry and how Marvel runs their business.
Saviuk has been appearing at Tampa shows frequently and poignantly discusses comic book mythology and the behind the scenes soap opera that writers and creators endure. In a 2004 interview, Saviuk revealed how Tom DeFalco, the Marvel editor at the time, called for some clothing to be added to Mary Jane to tone down the suggestive scene. The comic book code was an influential force during that time.
In addition to a seven year run on “Web of Spider-Man”, Alex has drawn the Spider-Man newspaper comic strip since 2003. The “X-Files” comic book, working on “Green Lantern”, “Superman” and many other titles, Saviuk brings years of experience to the comic book fan.
With “Spider-Man 4″ in production, it is certain that fans will come loaded with questions and seeking after this Spidey creator.
The convention is Sunday, February 20th from 10am to 4pm. For more information see the convention’s website: http://www.tampabaycomiccon.com/index.html
My first effort at “blogging” before it was called “blogging” was a Pop Culture, Comic Book column at CrazedFanboy.com.
A lot sure has changed since these days.
Due to the support/pressure from my DOB comrades, Splash Page was resurrected to publish Pop Culture topics and the “State of the Nation” will continue to deal with politics and heavy issues.
