Announcing special guest - longtime Marvel Comics/DC Comics artist - Mr. Arvell Jones!

It is my sincere pleasure to announce the latest addition to the December 1st Christmas Comic Con 2 guest list - a man whose career first began in the mid-1970s at Marvel Comics, where not only did he work on such titles as Marvel Premiere (with Iron Fist); Deathlok; Thor; Iron Man; Luke Cage; The Avengers; Daredevil; Captain America and more (including co-creating the character Misty Knight) - but later, went on to work for DC Comics as penciller for titles such as Super-Team Family and All-Star Squadron (where he enjoyed a two-year run). 

He's also worked in television, the internet development sector and is also Adjunct Faculty in the Illustration Department at Detroit's College For Creative Studies. This gentleman has also taught and mentored artists for 15 years with another of his co-creations, the Comic Art Workshop - not to mention he'll soon be returning to comics with two indy titles slated for release. 

Ladies and gentlemen, it is my honor to welcome Mr. Arvell Jones as the latest guest of Christmas Comic Con 2. Check out a sampling of his fine work below - and meet him Dec. 1st at the St. Clair Centre for the Arts in Windsor, ON, as Windsor Comic Cons (in partnership with St. Clair College) present Christmas Comic Con 2!
