Tony Moore was “raised by a wild pack of televisions” in the small town of Cynthiana, Ky. Moore spent his formative years on his grandfather’s tobacco farm dreaming of little else than growing up to be a comic book artist.
Best-known for his work on the Eisner Award-nominated The Walking Dead, Moore also co-created the books The Exterminators and Fear Agent, lent his hand to bombastic runs of Marvel’s Ghost Rider, Punisher, Venom, and Deadpool, and has drawn covers for countless others.
Join us for an evening exploring the pastoral landscapes and personal demons that have inspired and resurrected the mind of Colonel Tony Moore to bring life to today’s darkest comic heroes.
