If you're into comic books like Marvelman and Fables, you'll know the name Mark Buckingham. He's an award-winning artist whose resume also includes Star Trek and Doctor Strange for Marvel, Hellblazer, Miracleman, Tyranny Rex, Ghost Rider 2099 and many other projects. Neil Gaiman was the best man at his wedding.
In short, the man will never, ever have to pay to attend Comic Con.
Point of triva: in 1986, he was a 19 year-old kid working at a studio called Aardman Animations. His regular job was fetching tea for clients and the crew. But for one music video project, he served as a stunt double as the crew worked out various animation techniques. He's also the guy with the sledgehammer who squishes the chicken.
You've probably seen the video, too.
