OafCon spotlight: Mike Kennedy
"Celtic Knights" artist Mike Kennedy, formerly of Oklahoma, is set to attend this year's OafCon.
The Comic Book & Nostalgia Convention "Oafcon" returns for its 2016 edition this week in Norman. The convention welcomes a wide variety of guests, and features comic books, fantasy art, toys, movie posters, old time radio memorabilia and much more.
Kennedy illustrated "Chuk the Barbaric" and "Heroines Inc." among others in his artistic career.
In “Celtic Knights,” 90 percent of the world’s superheroes have been wiped out by supervillains.
Trying to protect themselves, “the governments are starting to gather their own superteams,” Kennedy said in a previous interview. “In Ireland, where the story takes place, they’re pretty much the dregs of the superhero community.”
Kennedy also recently released a coloring book featuring the Celtic Knights.
