Alexis Frederick-Frost - Adventures in Cartooning
Alexis is co-author and illustrator of the critically acclaimed Adventures in Cartooningseries of graphic novels and picture books. A combination how-to book and an exciting adventure story, Adventures in Cartooning was one of Booklist's Top Ten Graphic Novel of 2010 and has received many awards. His illustrations have appeared online and in a variety of publications including Nickelodeon Magazine, the Adventure Time comic, and others.
Alexis will be offering up the newly-published Ogres Awake - the third book in the Adventures in Cartooning Junior series of comic/picture book hybrids which includes Sleepless Knight and Gryphons Aren't So Great. These comics feature characters from the Adventure in Cartooning graphic novels but are for children who are just learning to read.
Mike Maihack - Cleopatra in Space
Mike is a cartoonist, dad, and graphic novelist currently working on the his fourth book of his Cleopatra in Space series, published by Scholastic Books. It's about the actual Cleopatra (from history!) who is transported to the future to help save a faraway galaxy from evil (because saving a galaxy from non-evil wouldn't make much sense). But first, she has to learn how to do that by taking a bunch of space classes like alien languages, combat training, and algebra - mostly taught by a bunch of talking cats.
Jason Horn is the creator of the web comic, Ninjasaur, chronicling the adventures of a wisecracking dinosaur ninja.
Be sure to come to the The Kids Love Comics Pavilion(sponsored by The School for Good and Evil series) at the Baltimore Comic-Con to meet these creators and more!
