It’s exciting times here at ICE Central as we announce that our second overseas guest for the expo will be Alessandro Vitti artist on titles like Red Lanterns, Doctor Who and – of course – ICEMAN (we resisted the obvious puns) The award winning artist will be flying in from Italy to join us for the convention this year.
Having been in the industry since 2001, Alessandro has worked with all major Italian, American and French publishers in the business.
He has illustrated italian comic books such as Brendon & Saguaro, for Sergio Bonelli Editore.

Probably the most important milestone in his early career at Marvel was his work with writer Jonathan Hickman on Secret Warriors, which really brought his unique style and excellent storytelling to the attention of the fans.
He also had an acclaimed run on Red Lanterns over at DC Comics working with writer Charles Soule which astonished critics and fans alike with it’s great characterisations and powerful art.
