Sandy Plunkett and the Wizard's Guild

Wednesdays we're going to be highlighting some of the artists and vendors that will be appearing at Ratha Con, and today we're going to kick it off with Sandy Plunkett and the Wizard's Guild.

Sandy Plunkett grew up in New York but has made Athens, Ohio his home. He has illustrated for multiple publications, including Marvel and DC comics, and various other venues like political cartoons. Plunkett has a book full of his sketches that you probably haven't seen in any comic or newspaper. The book is called "The World of a Wayward Comic Book Artist: the Private Sketchbooks of S. Plunkett" and is available for purchase from his website: http://www.plunkettart.com/

Plunkett's website also displays some of the gorgeous illustrations he's made over the years in the comic book style that we all know and love. He's also the creator of the awesome Ratha Con logo that we've come to know and love. As an artist with such an impressive history and amazing talent, who's set up shop in Athens, we are proud to welcome Sandy Plunkett to Ratha Con.

The Wizard's Guild is a gaming and comic book shop located in Athens, Ohio, at 19 West Washington St. It is the go-to gaming location for any person in Athens who has interest in trading card games, tabletop roleplaying games, or miniature war games, not to mention its wide collection of comic books and board games for sale.
