Veteran Comics Creator’s First Upstate Appearance

Mike Gold

Syracuse, N.Y. (April 24, 2017):  Syracuse’s Salt City Comic-Con is excited to welcome comics legend Mike Gold to the growing list of creators.

Mike Gold has enjoyed an astounding career in comics, and been involved with everything from relaunching The Flash and Green Arrow to co-founding the Chicago Comic-Con.  He was worked for numerous comic companies including Valiant/Acclaim, Classics Illustrated and Image Comics.  Gold was group editor and director of editorial development for DC Comics and co-founder of First Comics.

As a social activist, Gold co-founded The National Runaway Switchboard and many causes involving drug education, sex education and youth. In 2011, Mike was awarded the Hero Initiative’s first Humanitarian Award at the Baltimore Comic-Con’s Harvey Award Ceremony.

Currently, Mike is involved with ComicMix, Get the Point Radio and many social causes.

“I’m looking forward to coming up to Syracuse and seeing a bunch of old friends and co-workers,” Gold said. “A lot of great comics talent has come out of this area, and I’m excited to see what’s going on with the younger kids on the block.”

Syracuse’s Salt City Comic-Con, celebrating its fourth year, moves to the Oncenter’s War Memorial building in downtown Syracuse on June 24th and 25th.  This pop-culture convention focuses on comics, toys, games, cosplay and collectibles.  Pre-sale tickets are available online.

“Mike Gold is an impressive guy and I always think of him whenever I see The Flash or Arrow on Television. Without his reboot efforts, those shows, and today’s superheroes-on-TV trend, might never have happened, “said Ed Catto, Pop Culture Expert & Marketing Executive. “And I always enjoy the music he plays on his Inside the Gold Mind show on Get The Point Radio too.”
