Alexis Denisof is one of pop culture's most versatile and beloved actors. He will next be seen in the highly anticipated second season of MTV's acclaimed drama Finding Carter, the highest rated new cable show of 2014, in which Denisof plays Carter's complex father David. And he can be seen regularly as the charismatic villain Prince Viktor in NBC's Grimm.

Most recently Denisof appeared in the blockbuster's Guardians Of The Galaxy and The Avengers, as the mysterious villain, The Other.

His recent performance in one of Shakespeare's great roles is unforgettable as Benedick in Joss Whedon's comedy Much Ado About Nothing. The film, done in the original text, received outstanding reviews, especially for the quarreling lovers played by Denisof and Amy Acker. Also starring in the film are Nathan Fillion, Clark Gregg, Fran Kranz.

Denisof's versatility was again on display in Bryan Singer's ground-breaking online sci-fi series H+ onYouTube, and in his recurring role as the hilarious news anchor Sandy Rivers on CBS's How I Met Your Mother.

But Denisof is perhaps best known to audiences as Wesley Wyndam-Pryce on the series Angel. A character he created for season 3 of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. For over 100 episodes, Denisof played one of the most beloved characters of what has become known as the Whedonverse.

He began acting at a young age at Seattle's distinguished ACT and Bathhouse Theater, before being accepted to the prestigious London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art. Upon graduating he was invited to join the Royal Shakespeare Company in their acclaimed production of Hamlet starring Mark Rylance.

Denisof made his film debut in the British film Murder Story opposite Christopher Lee. Denisof has appeared in such films asFirst Knight, Rogue Trader, True Blue, Innocent Lies, and the Sundance Film festival hit, The Misadventures of Margeret.

While in London, Denisof enjoyed an equally prolific stage career in the West End productions of Cyrano de Bergerac, A Tale of Two Cities, Tovarich, and Bent with Sir Ian McKellen. Denisof also enjoyed success in other theater productions, including Rope, Cain, Pointe Valaine, and All My Sons.

Aside from his extensive theater and film experience, Denisof is also a veteran of television including NBC's Noah's Ark, Private Practice, Dollhouse and the popular British series, Sharpe, Faith, and Romeo and Juliet.

Denisof is married to actress Alyson Hannigan, with whom he has two daughters.

Well known in American comics fandom since the 1960’s for his vast comic book collection and fanzine writing & cartooning, Rosa became internationally famous starting in 1987 when he began writing and drawing “Uncle $crooge” and “Donald Duck” comics for various licensed publishers in Europe.  Just as they once were in America, Donald Duck comics (based on Carl Barks’ work) continue to be the best selling comic books in Europe and South America where the *weekly* Duck comics have been read by hundreds of millions of fans for over 60 years. This makes Rosa one of the world’s best known and most popular cartoonists, but still very easy to visit with at American shows where he can relax in “relative obscurity”. American comics fans are mostly familiar with his most famous and oft-reprinted work, the Eisner Award winning “Life and Times of $crooge McDuck” series.

Powerhouse artist Mike Zeck, renowned illustrator and storyteller, is making a rare and select series of appearances in 2015.

A heavy-hitter in the comics industry, and influencing generations of artists, one would have to argue which of Mike’s series has been the most influential, or which is embossed most deeply in our pop culture.

Zeck’s epic six part story Kraven’s Last Hunt, with J.M. Dematteis and Bob McLeod, springs immediately to mind. This groundbreaking series took the Spider-man character to a whole new level, and has been touted by readers as the "Greatest Spider-Man story of all time," in recent polls.

Considered one of "the" Punisher artists, Zeck’s work with writer Steven Grant on the character--collected as Circle of Blood--sets the standard for the look and feel of the Punisher and propelled him to flagship character status at Marvel. In fact, along with air-brush artist Phil Zimmelman, Mike has created some of the most recognizable painted images of the Punisher ever made.

The Limited Series Secret Wars, set the comic book readership on their ears, and brought a new black-and-white costume design for Spider-man (designed by Zeck) which is still recognizable and indelible to this day. Spider-man wore the costume temporarily, and it still lives on in the form of the super-villain, Venom.

In short, when you stop and think of the t-shirts sporting Zeck images, the homages to his covers, the lineage of his storytelling, you need a long sheet of paper to start writing them down.

Michael J. Zeck it seems, always knew he would work in the arts. Born in Pennsylvania and growing up in South Florida, he later attended the Ringling School of Art in Sarasota, Florida, his eye always on working in the sequential art field. He began that career at Charlton Comics with their animation-related line of comics leading to horror titles, later moving on to Marvel Comics. Some of his first work at Marvel included Master of Kung Fu and Captain America, with many more titles, at numerous companies, to follow from there.

Zeck’s work has graced the pages and covers of Aquaman, Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight, Green Lantern, G.I. Joe, G.I. Joe: Special Missions, Lobo, Deathstroke The Terminator, The Eliminator, and too many titles to mention here.

Zeck will be promoting his new art book Raw Fury: The Art of Michael J. Zeck at each of his appearances.

For more information on this appearance and Michael J. Zeck contact Eva Ink Artist Group at: evaink@aol.com.

Tom started doing voiceover work at the age of 15, in his home town of Kansas City. By the time he got out of college, he had done several hundred commercials, and by the time he was 23, he was in Chicago, regularly landing National TV spots and other jobs. But what he really wanted to do was Cartoons. So at the age of 24, he moved to Hollywood and immediately started landing Commercials, Movie Trailers, Network Promos... succeeding in every area of VO work except animation.

After several years of auditioning with no results, he was about to give up on that dream when he landed a lead role in Iron Man. Then came The Wild Thornberrys... then The Powerpuff Girls, then Kim Possible... and, well, you get the idea.

Tom Kane's tremendous vocal range has led to a busy career. Every week, he records literally dozens of Movie Trailers, Commercials, Network TV Promos, Video Games and Cartoons, most notably as the Voice of Yoda in Star Wars The Clone Wars.

Currently, he has National Spots running for Scrubbing Bubbles, Cars 2, Walmart, Chrysler, Netflix, Nintendo, Propel Water, McDonald's, Kellogg's Corn Pops, The Smurfs, Nickelodeon... the list goes on.

In addition to voicing Yoda, he has voiced lead roles in The Powerpuff Girls, Robot Chicken, Kim Possible, The Avengers, Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, Iron Man, The Wild Thornberrys, Wolverine and the X-Men and many more.

Kane has been in almost every Star Wars game ever made, as well as games based on Star Trek, The X-Men, Batman, The Avengers, The Lord of the Rings and more.

An unusual area of Kane's work is voice-doubling. When celebrities are not available to do their post-production or testing dialogue recording, Tom fills in for A-listers such as Morgan Freeman, Anthony Hopkins, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellan, Liam Neeson and others.

He has also been the live Announcer for three AFI Lifetime Achievement Award telecasts, as well as the Announcer for the 78th, 80th and 83rd Academy Awards.

Most recently, he was chosen to be the voice for Walt Disney amusement parks, worldwide.
