Meet DARK SHADOWS artist Ken Bald this weekend

Ken Bald.
Ken Bald, possibly the finest comic artist to ever work on DARK SHADOWS (and that's saying a lot) will be attending ToyConNJ in Parsippany, New Jersey, this weekend. Bald worked on the DARK SHADOWS newspaper strip that ran from 1971-1972. It's reportedly his favorite work of his career, which is no small statement given that Guinness World Records has crowned him as the world's "oldest comic book artist." The man has worked on everything from DOC SAVAGE to CAPTAIN AMERICA to DR. KILDARE.

Bald will be at the ToyConNJ Saturday and Sunday, June 28 and 29. The artist will be bringing an assortment of 20 new #1 sketch covers that he recently illustrated, featuring characters like Captain America, Bucky, Wolverine, Spider-Man, The Thing, Sub-Mariner, Namora, and more.  
Admission to the event is $5. For more details, click

Bald's work on DARK SHADOWS is being collected in hardback later this year. DARK SHADOWS THE COMPLETE NEWSPAPER DAILIES AND SUNDAY has a projected release date of Sept. 9, 2014, on Amazon, and the book is now available for pre-order. The previous softcover, B&W edition of the newspaper strips, first published in 1996, is also available.
