Amazing Houston Comic Con Guest Spotlight: Mat Nastos

Film, TV, Animation (Disney, Fox Animation), and novel veteran, Mat Nastos, returns to the Amazing Houston Comic Con! Nastos is no stranger to the Houston crowd. He ran Odyssey Comics & Cards in Cypress, TX during the 90s, and his own family was from Houston!

This year, Mat brings his latest comic project, the giant robot series, SHOGUN KNIGHT DYSON V. Growing up in the 80s, his afternoons were spent in front of the TV watching Mazinger Z (Tranzor Z), Getta Robo, Giant Robo, Voltron, and the like. Marvel Comics’ SHOGUN WARRIORS series was another major influence on Mat.

At 9″x12″, SHOGUN KNIGHT DYSON V is certainly not a subtle love letter to the 1970s Japanese Super Robot cartoons and comics.

It’s the longing for those over the top action heroes and sequences that made Mat pursue SHOGUN KNIGHT DYSON V: with the corrupt Titan, BLACK ODIN, on a rampage, it is up to Lieutenant Jonathan “Hightower” Harmon and his team to awaken the guardian robot, DYSON-V, to stop him.

With artwork from Nastos, Nicolas Giacondino and Chunlin Zhao and letters from Ed Dukeshire, this tribute is a geek’s love letter to his childhood companions.

“This is one of my favorite pieces of work I’ve ever done, and is based on my love for the giant robot comics and cartoons of the 70s and 80s. If you love Shogun Warriors, Tranzor-Z (or Mazinger Z in other countries), Giant Robo, Big 0, Grendizer, Getter Robo, or any of their cousins, then you will be blown away by SHOGUN KNIGHT DYSON V! Not only is it full color, but it is printed OVERSIZE at 9″x12″!! The book is a beast and simply beautiful.”, states Mat Nastos.

SHOGUN KNIGHT DYSON V will be premiering at the Amazing Houston Comic Con, September 4 directly from Mat Nastos.

Amazing Houston Comic Con is the premiere pop culture event in the Southwest, featuring the very best comic creators in the world, extensive programming, an international artist alley, and the wizards of cosplay. The event takes place Labor Day Weekend, September 4-5-6 at the George R. Brown Convention Center in the heart of downtown Houston.

AMAZING HOUSTON COMIC CON UPDATE: FULL WEEKEND PROGRAMMING!

As AMAZING HOUSTON COMIC CON enters our 2nd year, a main goal was to expand the event, while keeping true to our core values. We believe in spotlighting the very best in pop culture, and the people who have brought these to life. On the schedule you will see many programs focused on our main guests- from DEADPOOL with creator Rob Liefeld, to STAR WARS events with Darth Vader’s David Prowse and Artist Howard Chaykin, to the Architects of Pop Culture panel with a number of the comic creators.

Pop Culture has many faces, and we are proud to grow the scope of the programming by adding a big animation push. Leading the way is Alex Hirsch and GRAVITY FALLS, BOB’s BURGERS character designer Devin Roth, and PHINEAS & FERB’s Mat Nastos. Diversity was also goal. Anime is also represented with SAILOR MOON cast Reunion, and fan favorite voice of Dragonball Z and more Chuck Huber.

While Costuming has become one of the growing areas of convention culture, Amazing Houston Comic Con goes a step beyond the standard. While the Saturday evening COSPLAY CONTEST is one of our tentpole events, we have included Doctor Who as a costume meet-up. Make & Take Workshops from Garage FX will be running throughout the weekend, empowering eveyone to build the coolest props and gear from everyday items. Also Sunday’s Kid’s Costume Parade is a crowd favorite.

COMPLETE PROGRAMMING SCHEDULE IS AVAILABLE NOW!

Amazing Houston Comic Con prides itself in bringing the best and brightest in the comics industry to celebrate with the fans. While we have announced established, fan favorite guests such as Deadpool Creator Rob Liefeld, Hall of Fame artist John Romita Jr, and dozens of others, we are equally excited to introduce new talent to the comic market.

Amazing Comic Con welcomes DC Bombshell artist- ANT LUCIA- to Houston!

Very few alternate visions of established characters have captured the imaginations of fandom like the DC Bombshells. in 2014, Ant Lucia unveiled his designs for the Wonder Woman, Batwoman, Harley Quinn, and the rest in a series of variant covers. The popularity of Ant Lucia’s take on well established icons inspired a line of statues, lithographs, and other licensed products from Warner Bros. At every comic con style event, scores of cosplayers emulate these Bombshell designs. And this month, DC Comics has returned to Ant Lucia’s world with the launch of new DC Bombshell variants and a new monthly comic series. Amazing Comic Conventions is thrilled to welcome a break out talent to Houston.

Ant Lucia will be appearing in the artist alley at the Amazing Houston Comic Con, with over 200 creators. He will be available on each of the days of the convention, meeting fans, signing product, and available for commissions.
