Westercon 66 Artist Guest of Honor: Eric Shanower
Small Press Special Guest: David Maxine
Eric and David hail from San Diego, and are devotees of all things Oz. Their shared fandom has developed into a comfortable professional life.
Eric is the creator of several Oz-based comic books, the author of Oz novels and the writer for the Marvel graphic novelizations of Baum’s Oz books. He’s also the creator of the Eisner Award winning Age of Bronze, a painstakingly researched graphic novel of the Trojan War.
David runs Hungry Tiger Press, a small publisher specializing in Oz-related publications. Not satisfied with just publishing books and graphic novels, Hungry Tiger also publishes music, including the Grammy Nominated Vintage Recordings from the 1903 Broadway Musical The Wizard of Oz.
