hal hefner @ the amazing Arizona comic con

Come and meet me,  Hal Hefner, artist and writer of Gates the comic at the Amazing Arizona Comic Con on January 8th and 9th, 2011.

I will be located at booth #123.

I’ll be sharing a booth with DC (Secret Six) cover artist, Dan LuVisi and creator of Heavy Metal’s blockbuster new hit, LMS.

The Amazing Arizona Comic Con is a new convention located in the heart of the desert. It’s the very first convention of the year, spanning the latest and greatest from the world of comic books and entertainment. From a show floor packed with over one hundred exhibitors, to an exciting artist alley, and autograph sessions giving fans a chance to interact with their favorite creators, the Amazing Arizona Comic Con brings the best of popular culture to the American Southwest!

Arizona is a great location and I’m excited to be a part of it. I’ll be located next to Leph Loeb, Todd McFarlane and Rob Liefeld. It’s an honor to be amongst these comic legends.

So please come by and say hello. I’ll also have some limited edition art prints, posters, exclusive shirts and a few other exciting items for sale, along with some free shwag.

I’m in the process of scheduling some panel appearances as well, and will update everyone accordingly when all of the information is confirmed. It looks like something fun with deviantART is in the works. Stay tuned.
