I’m pleased to announce our official moderator for the guest panels at this year’s Christmas Comic Con 2 – a true gentlemen, scholar, illustrator, painter, published poet/ writer and dyed-in-the-wool comic book fan.

A graduate of the University of Windsor with a B.A. in Fine Arts and a Master of Education, this man taught locally at the elementary and secondary school level for 41 years, including 16 as head consultant for a math and science curriculum department.

In addition, he was also one of the founders and first president of the Windsor Essex County Comic Collectors Club (WECCCC, est.1985) where, as a volunteer, he served as instructor and mentor to attendees of all ages at the Windsor Public Library by presenting segments on the history of the medium; examinations of the themes held within; and the publication of a newsletter made-up entirely of club member contributions (including those of a young Mike Michalski). In addition, the club also organized trips to various animation festivals and area comic book conventions.

His painted works have exhibited locally, he is a member of several poetry groups, and has also published Zapped by Design, Zithered by Wit – a collection of 160 poems that likewise includes 60 of his own illustrations.

A confirmed bibliophile and pop-culture buff, ladies and gentlemen, with great pleasure, I announce as our moderator, Mr. Roy James.

Meet Detective Comics artist Jason Fabok at Windsor Christmas Comic Con 2 Dec. 1st!

Any aspiring artists out there looking for a direct inspiration? Look no further than the career of one of Christmas Comic Con 2's very special guests, Mr. Jason Fabok. From humble, high school sketches to the Tradigital Animation course at St. Clair College to Aspen Comics and eventually full-time at DC Comics (where he currently pencils Batman in Detective Comics, the company's flagship title) don't miss this chance to meet Jay up-close and personal on Dec. 1st. With his ever-increasing schedule, these type of appearances are becoming fewer and farther-between for Jay. In fact, he's only doing three shows this entire year. C3-2 is honored to be one of them. Make a point to stop by and meet him (and his lovely wife Sarah) during this rare venture from his Batcave, located at an undisclosed location somewhere in Essex County.
