Born in Cedar Rapids, IA, artist Geof Darrow went through 12 years of Catholic schooling, which left him permanently scarred. He attended the Chicago Academy of Fine Arts for four years, and from there he worked in advertising, audio-visual, animation, and comics and at the Quaker Oats company in their maintenance department. Darrow’s comics work has won him some awards over the years and lost him some. He likes to draw and is fortunate enough to get paid for it … most of the time.

Cincy ComiCon guest Chris Sprouse
Chris Sprouse’s career spans over two decades in the comics industry. The artist first garnered attention as the penciller for DC Comics’ Legion of Super-Heroes spinoff, Legionnaires, but he’s probably most well known for his work on Wildstorm/DC Comics’ Tom Strong series, which he co-created with acclaimed writer Alan Moore. Sprouse has drawn numerous other titles for nearly every publisher in the industry, from Batman and Justice League books for DC, X-Men and Spider-Man comics for Marvel, and an adaptation of the Star Wars novel Splinter of the Mind’s Eye for Dark Horse Comics. In 2004, Sprouse teamed up with fan-favorite writer Warren Ellis to work on the creator-owned graphic novel Ocean (published by Wildstorm/DC Comics). In the last few years, Sprouse’s work has appeared in the Number of the Beast mini-series and the first issue of Grant Morrison’s The Return of Bruce Wayne, as well as a brand new Tom Strong min-series, Tom Strong and the Robots of Doom.
