Syracuse Salt City Comic-Con Signs Tom Peyer
June Convention Continues to Grow
Tom Peyer is a writer and editor who has worked on nearly every major character in comics. His better-known stories include HOURMAN, LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES and BATMAN ’66 for DC Comics, SPIDER-MAN, MARVEL APES and PUNISHER for Marvel Comics and THE SIMPSONS and BART SIMPSON for Bongo Comics.
Peyer was also a founding editor of DC’s groundbreaking VERTIGO imprint.
More recently, Peyer’s 2016-2017 AfterShock Comics series CAPTAIN KID, written with Mark Waid, featured a unique spin on a standard superhero trope: a middle-aged man who becomes a teenage super-hero. Peyer is now part of a group that is developing a new line of comics to be announced later this year.
As a creative “hometown hero”, Peyer was born in Syracuse and lives there still.
Syracuse’s Salt City Comic-Con, celebrating its fourth year, moves to the Oncenter’s War Memorial building in downtown Syracuse this year during June 24th and 25th. This pop-culture convention focuses on comics, toys, games, cosplay and collectibles. Pre-sale tickets are available at SyracusePREorder.com .
“Tom Peyer’s a creative and witty writer whose work is always fun and fresh,” said Convention Organizer Thomas Yeldon. “And as a ‘local boy’ with an impressive body of work, he serves as a great role model for all CNY comic fans.”
Tom Peyer will be appearing the convention both Saturday and Sunday.
“I’ve enjoyed Tom Peyer’s clever writing and unique vision ever since I first saw his work in The Syracuse New Times years ago. In his recent AfterShock series, CAPTAIN KID, Tom not only upends a traditional comic book premise, but he also creates several memorable characters along the way,” said Ed Catto, Pop Culture Expert & Marketing Executive.
