Here is the link to the new Battlestar Galactica print published by ANOVOS, “Hangar Deck Scramble,” which I painted for a limited edition fine art lithograph for San Diego Comic-Con. The lithograph is limited to 250 signed and numbered, so please place your order soon by clicking here: http://www.davedorman.com/bsgprint.shtml — those who order directly from me will receive a FREE drawing. The cost on these prints is $110 plus shipping.
Additionally, I will be appearing at Cyphan this weekend at the Hyatt in Rosemont , IL (next door to the convention center where Wizard World is held). This is a fun, young, fan-run con that I really want to see succeed. Cyphan is in its third year now, and embraces science fiction, horror and fantasy.
On a side note, I send my condolences to the victims and their survivors from the Aurora, Colorado tragedy. I am especially proud of the fan community for pulling together and supporting these people emotionally and financially. I know that writer Steve Niles posted a charity that is helping these people called GivingFirst.org and here is the link: https://givingfirst.org/index.php?section=content&action=dynamic&cmsID=36, and Comics Price Guide is selling t-shirts for $20 to help them as well. Yes, I bought one. I hope you do, too. Here is the link to the t-shirts: http://www.comicspriceguide.com/shirt.aspx
I think Christian Bale and his wife should be commended for comforting the survivors and their families. He’s a terrific actor and he’s proven he’s a stand-up human being.
My writer friend John Ostrander and I were interviewed by a Richmond, VA CBS affiliate TV station Monday regarding a Batman story John wrote long ago. I did the cover art. That interview is here: http://wtvr.com/2012/07/24/holmberg-the-story-behind-batman-and-robins-fight-for-gun-control-in-va/
I did an interview with Comics Price Guide during Comic-Con, and you can see that at http://facebook.com/davedormanfanpage.
Thanks as always for reading and I will be checking back in soon.
Dear Friends, I’m posting this from the floor of the show at San Diego Comic-Con and I wanted those of you who couldn’t be here with me to share in the fun of this new Battlestar Galactica print. This first release is limited to 250 signed and numbered prints by licensee ANOVOS. I hope you all like it. This is one of my favorite TV series of all times, and I couldn’t have been more honored than I was when ANOVOS asked me to do this piece. Edward James Olmos gave us his personal stamp of approval on this one, and it was a huge fan boy honor to speak with him earlier this week. Without further adieu, here it is:
Los Angeles, CA and Chicago, IL—April 20, 2012—In their first creative collaboration, #1 Star Wars Artist Dave Dorman is creating the cover art for The X-Files and Lone Gunmen actor and “The Truth is Out There” filmmaker Dean Haglund. Haglund’s new graphic novel “Shock ‘N Awesome” is currently a Kickstarter.com campaign and promises a conspiracy theory lovers tale, unveiling the very Indiana Jones-like truth behind the U.S. invasion of Iraq in 2003. Hint: It wasn’t oil.
“Dean and I have kicked around some collaborative ideas over the years, but this one feels right to me,” said Dorman. “I am thrilled that someone of Dave’s caliber is working with me on this creative adventure. I believe Dave’s cover art will excite people enough to meet my Kickstarter goal,” Haglund added. Shock ‘N Awesome currently has $4,257 in contributions with 23 more days remaining to earn the total $7,000 required to produce the graphic novel.
If funding goes according to plan, Haglund hopes to have the graphic novel ready in time for San Diego Comic-Con, and an autograph session at Dorman’s Booth #4500.
Haglund will publish an initial run of 1,000 issues to be distributed through Diamond.

About Dean Hagund:
Dean is probably best known for his nine seasons playing Langly, one of the computer geeks known as “The Lone Gunmen” from the hit FOX TV series The X-Files. Today, Dean’s visual art is now collected worldwide. His oil paintings combine an unabashed Graphic Novel sensibility, using classic compositions and images from iconic Americana. Modern allegories and metaphors arise from a heavily researched catalogue of past works using the emotional/ theatrical tableaus with re-stated contemporary themes and cultural touchstones to evoke new meaning. Dean headlines with his unique ONE MAN X-FILES IMPROV COMEDY show at comedy clubs, colleges and comedy festivals around the world, which earned him 4-star reviews from the International Edinburgh Fringe Festival, two years in a row.
About Dave Dorman:
For the past 30 years, Eisner and Inkpot Award-winning artist Dave Dorman’s dynamic, hyper-realism art has boosted toy and comic book sales for those art directors wise enough to hire him. His fan base is worldwide. In 2012 Dorman did the six covers completing the Dark Horse Star Wars “Crimson Empire” series, and is currently creating the covers for the new four-book “Darth Maul” series. His Captain America art also appears in the new Marvel pop-up book Super Heroes vs. Villains: An Explosive Pop-Up of Rivalries slated for a July 2012 release. His autobiography, “Rolling Thunder: The Art of Dave Dorman” (IDW Publishing/Desperado Publishing) is available on Amazon.com and his 2-part instructional series on pencil and oil illustration is available via The Gnomon Workshop. This year, Dave Dorman will be exhibiting this year at Spectrum, San Diego Comic-Con Booth #4500 and Star Wars Celebration 6. His one-man art show, “Pi ala Mode” just completed its April run Chicago’s Rotofugi art gallery.
