  2. Marcus McLaurin returns to the Western Massachusetts Comic Book Show! Marcus McLaurin is an American comic-book writer and editor best known for developing the landmark Marvel Comics limited series Marvels by Kurt Busiek and Alex Ross. McLaurin studied art at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York, before joining Marvel as an assistant editor. He rose to become a full editor working on the Epic Comics imprint and on other Marvel projects. These included Epic's various Alien Legion limited series, its "Heavy Hitters" line of action comics by Peter David, Howard Chaykin and others, and licensed titles such as the legendary manga Akira and filmmaker and fantasy novelist Clive Barker's Clive Barker's Night Breed and Hellraiser. He also edited the creatively daring Razorline imprint of superheroes created by Barker for Marvel. McLaurin developed Marvels — a painted-art miniseries recounting the Marvel universe epic from the point of view of an Everyman not privy to the omniscient-view details given real-life comics readers — after its conception by comics newcomer Ross, a future industry superstar whom McLaurin worked with and encouraged. Teaming the artist with writer Busiek and shepherding it through Marvel as a prestige project, McLaurin saw Marvels win 1994 Harvey Awards for "Best Continuing or Limited Series", "Best Single Issue or Story" (issue #4), and "Excellence in Production/Presentation"; the graphic novel compilation released in 1995 won the following year's award for "Best Graphic Album of Previously Published Work". It won critical accolades in such mainstream magazines as Entertainment Weekly. As a writer, McLaurin helmed the 18-issue run of the Luke Cage revival series Cage (1992-1993). He also wrote issues of The Punisher (1987-1995 series) and occasional features in Marvel Comics Presents.

  3. Jim Lawson returns to the Western Massachusetts Comic Book Show! Born and raised in a tiny town in northwestern Connecticut, Jim Lawson always knew that he wanted to become an artist and that he had the hopeful, yet somewhat unrealistic goal for himself to make a living drawing pictures. After he graduated art school, a fortunate series of events came together that allowed him to be introduced to the creators of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles- Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird. That was the beginning of Jim’s career in comics, which now has spanned nearly 35 incredible years- 25 of them with Mirage Studios as a writer/artist on the original black and white Turtle comic. Since the end of his association with the TMNTs, Jim has pursued a solo freelance career. His many self-published works include among others, Paleo: Tales of the Late Cretaceous, A Walk Through Dinosaurland, Dragonfly, Dinosaur Head Cat and Jim Lawson’s Dinosaurs Coloring Book. The Western Massachusetts Comic Book Show is Sunday May 24th, 2020, 10AM-4PM at Hawks and Reed Performing Arts Center 289 Main Street, Greenfield, MA 01301 $5 entry (Kids 10 & under FREE with paid adult admission)
