We regret that for personal reasons Henry Mayo will not be able to join us at the 2016 San Diego Comic Fest.
Back in the ’80s, Henry Mayo was doing comics art for San Diego’s own Blackthorne, Eclipse, and other publishers. Some titles he worked on were Blackthorne 3-D Series, Dinosaur Rex, Twisted Tales, Neil and Buzz in Space and Time, and Disney’s Cartoon Tales.
However, before long, Hollywood also recognized Henry’s talents and stole him away to work as a concept artist, concept designer, and storyboard artist. His first film work was for Dune (1984), where he joined fellow Fest guest Bill Bryan on the set. The stellar list of other fan-favorite films that have known his artistic touch includes Ghostbusters II (with fellow Fest guest Michael Gross), Dune, Predator 2, Jumanji, The Relic, Men in Black, The Mummy, The Mummy Returns, Shrek, Mission to Mars, The Time Machine, Scooby-Doo, Garfield, The Smurfs, and Ted.
Recently, though, Henry found himself with the urge to once again do some comics work. The result is that new Henry Mayo comic art has appeared in issue #3 of Bela Lugosi’s Tales From the Grave, published by Monsterverse. Here is a sample page of art from that comic, showing Henry’s work on “The Mummy’s Ring” (written by Sam Park).
