ROUND 2 BEGINS!
The first battle is over, a new one has risen! Round 2 will take place live this Saturday 2pm at the Aspen Comics booth in Los Angeles, CA at Wizard World Los Angeles 2008! The teams have grown larger now with the addition of the round two combatants...And, why wait any longer? Let's meet the newest ARTSENAL warriors!
TEAM ASPEN - MICHAEL LOPEZ
TEAM ASPEN is reloading with longtime penciler, master of the female form, and straight up dope guy Michael Lopez! Joining us courtesy of the Wildstorm gang, Lopez is ready to drop down on the city of Angeles with his pencil and pad and set the record straight! Lopez is currently producing covers for GEN 13!
TEAM KIANI - PETER STEIGERWALD
Hometown legend Steigerwald has been busy coloring the very best Aspen has to offer and now he's ready to drop his wacom pen and pick up the lead to go head to head! Plus he plans on distracting his opponents with "yo mama" jokes. Peter's work includes Soulfire, Fathom,DC's Identity Crisis, and Marvel's Civil War!
TEAM GRACE - JOE BENITEZ
But hold on people, TEAM GRACE is still sitting fat on their impressive round one victory and plan to add to their total with the addition of mega-artist Joe Benitez. Known for his awesome work within the pages of Batman and his impressive series Wraithborn! LA is Joe's stomping ground and he's not letting the other two out of the convention center without paying their dues--It's on!
