Mark Schultz Attending PulpFest 2012
PulpFest is very pleased to announce that author and illustrator Mark Schultz, best known for his award-winning comics series Xenozoic Tales, will be appearing at the "Summer's Great Pulp Con" in August. Mark, along with his friends Jim and Ruth Keegan, will be joining PulpFest 2012 to help celebrate the 80th anniversary of Robert E. Howard's Conan.
The winner of five Harvey Awards, two Eisners, an Inkpot, a Spectrum Award, and three Haxturs for comics published in Spain, Mark originally became interested in the work of Robert E. Howard through the Lancer paperbacks of the late sixties. His professional involvement with Howard's fiction began when Wandering Star asked if he would be interested in illustrating a Howard book. The result, Conan of Cimmeria, Vol. One (1932-1933), was published in the United Kingdom in 2003. The first US edition, also illustrated by Schultz, was published by Del Rey later the same year. Mark's cover painting for the Del Rey edition appears above.
Mark will be joining the Keegans in PulpFest's dealers' room where they will have some of their Howard-related work on display. He will also be joining Jim and Ruth for an historical look at The Illustrated Conan on Saturday, August 11th. Mark will discuss the actual mechanics of creating illustrations for stories vs. covers vs. comics and how intended use effects content and approach.
