San Diego Comics Fest 2016

The good people who run San Diego Comic Fest asked me to do this year's program cover. The honoree was Forrest J. Ackerman, trailblazer of sci-fi fandom and owner of the "Ackermansion" where he kept his mongo collection of movie memorabilia. Most famously he created the "Famous Monsters of Filmland" magazine, and this provided the inspiration for my illo. How could you not have fun digging into these guys? Everything was so last-minute we didn't have a chance to print any posters in time for the Fest--but they are available here on the Comics by Marty Davis website. Check 'em out! I only made it down on the weekend, but lots of fun to see old friends and make some new ones. And gratified to see the Fest reach a whole 'nother level of popularity this year...must've been my cover!
