Posting of our first special guest who will be a presenter at the convention:
Travis Horseman - Writer/Creator
Travis was born in Springfield, Ohio, and discovered comic books at the age of six. Since then, the course of his life has been shaped by his love of comics, theater and classical history. In addition to being a writer, he has been an actor, a director, a produced playwright, and occasionally, all three at once.
After writing the first draft of Amiculus as a ten-page play in college, he began adapting it as a comic, intending it to be a short 32-page project to test the waters for a different series. Eight years and 162 pages later, it has become an epic unto itself.
Travis is a graduate of Ohio University's School of Theater, and currently lives in Columbus, Ohio.
AMICULUS is a quasi-historical epic, telling a “lost” history of the fall of Rome through the eyes of its last emperor, a 12-year-old boy named Romulus. Through him we see Rome at the moment of its collapse, besieged by a vast barbarian army. Yet within Rome a secret war rages, revealing an intricate mosaic of conspiracy within conspiracy, bloodshed and betrayal, tragedy and loss. At its center is AMICULUS, a mysterious cloaked figure manipulating generals, kings, and western civilization. As the mightiest empire on earth crumbles, we are left to wonder: did Rome merely fall, or was it pushed?
