in collaboration with
THE KENTUCKY CENTER FOR THE PERFORMING ARTS
Republic Bank Foundation Speaker Series
The Colonel of Comics:
Zombies, Anti-Heroes and the Art of Tony Moore
Tony Moore was “raised by a wild pack of televisions” in the small town of Cynthiana, Ky. Moore spent his formative years on his grandfather’s tobacco farm dreaming of little else than growing up to be a comic book artist.
Most known for his work on The Walking Dead, Moore also co-created the books The Exterminators and Fear Agent, and has since lent his hand to bombastic runs on Marvel’s Ghost Rider, Punisher, Venom, and Deadpool, and has drawn covers for countless others. He has been twice nominated for the comics industry’s prestigious Eisner Award.
Join us for an evening exploring the pastoral landscapes and personal demons that have inspired and resurrected the mind of Colonel Tony Moore to bring life to today’s darkest comic heroes.
