Event organisers Showmasters have announced that Avengers artis Adi Granov will be joining the roster of top talent already lined up for the Comics Zone at the year’s London Film and Comic Con in July.
The appearance of the artist, famed for his array of Marvel covers and for his collaboration with writer Warren Ellis on Iron Man: Extremis, is being sponsored by Stevenage-based Limited Edition Comix. The shop will be showcasing its own exclusive Marvel cover variants drawn by the Bosnian artist, who also provided concept art for Avengers Assemble and the Iron Man movies.
After drawing DreamWave’s 2003 three-parter Necrowar and a 14-pager for Metal Hurlant #10 for Humanoids, Adi Granov was scooped up by Marvel, which he has worked ever since. His initial output for the House of Ideas was providing covers to Iron Man, She-Hulk, Inhumans and Thor: Son of Asgard. He has since gone on to produce covers for numerous other titles, among them Amazing Spider-Man, Fantastic Four, and X-Men.
