Gene Ha as special guest at Heroes Dutch Comic Con
We are excited to welcome American comic book artist Gene Ha as a special guest at Heroes Dutch Comic Con. Gene received the Russ Manning Most Promising Newcomer Award in 1994, and he was promising indeed, because during the course if his career he’s received four Eisner Awards, the highest honor in American comics.
Gene is best known for his work with writer Alan Moore in America’s Best Comics’ Top 10 (Two Eisners, Best New Series and Best Continuing Series) and its prequel, The Forty-Niners (Eisner Award for Best New Graphic Album). His bibliography includes, amongst many others, The Adventures of Cyclops & Phoenix; Batman: Fortunate Son, Global Frequency, Justice League of America #11 (which won him the Eisner Award for Best Single Issue in 2008, along with writer Brad Meltzer), the Askani’s Son miniseries, some issues of the acclaimed series Fables, Action Comics, and many, many others.
Currently, Gene devotes all his time to his passion project, Mae, a series he originally created as a Kickstarter and then he launched through Dark Horse Comics, eventually moving to its current home, Lion Forge Comics. Gene not only draws Mae, he also writes and colors the book, which tells us the story of Mae Foretell, a girl who follows her long missing sister Abbie to a world of mad science and mystery. When she was just a girl, Abbie discovered a portal to fantasy world and for the last couple of years has been having great adventures there: defeating horrible monsters, power-mad scientists, and evil nobles. But by the time she turned twenty-one it all came apart and she decided to return home. Mae has had no idea what happened to Abbie after all this time. Her tales are too hard to believe--that is, until the monsters and other terrible creatures start to cross over to our world...

Gene will be with us, signing at his table and with panels about his work on both days of HDCC! You can’t miss meeting an artist of his stature in person!
