BAKERSFIELD COMIC CON SPECIAL GUESTS


JOEL ADAMS


The eldest son of famed comic book legend Neal Adams. Graduated from the School of Visual Arts in New York, in 1988. Joel moved to Los Angeles to work at Neal's west coast offices of Continuity Studios. While at Continuity, he dabbled in comic books helping out on Continuity titles such as "Ms Mystic," and "Bucky O'Hare.". Outside of Continuity he did covers for Alpha Productions "Blood Thirst" and Penthouse Comix "Young Captain Adventure".

In 1996, Joel was called by Marvel Animation to do all the character design for "The Hulk: Animated series.". From there he went to FOX/Film Roman to Design the Emmy Award winning "King of the Hill", then to FOX Family to Design "Nascar Racers".

His background with Continuity and comic books gave Joel the additional skills, while working for the animation companies, to be also picked up for all of the licensing art for these shows and others by the licensing companies handling them. Joel’s art has appeared on the products stemming from: The Hulk, Nascar Racers, King of the Hill, Captain Scarlet, The Mask(Animation), Mighty Morphing Power Rangers, Power Rangers: Light Speed Rescue, Power Rangers: Wild Force, Harry Potter: Goblet of Fire, and more...

Today, Joel has been devoted to pushing his own license LILZ, a series of big head big eyed characters he began showing back in 2000, and can be seen literally all over online community message boards and websites in what are called "signature tags." It is his desire to get the Lilz off of the Internet and into stores everywhere.

CHERYL SPARKS


Cheryl Sparks was a high school student in 1971 and was given the chance to appear as “Huey” in SILENT RUNNING. She considers this some of the best times of her life. Cheryl is a mom and a grandmother and is now happily retired in California. SILENT RUNNING (Universal Studios, 1972) was the first film directed by Douglas Trumbull, who’d supervised the brilliant special effects for 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY (MGM, 1968). Given a million dollars by Universal to make any movie he wanted, Trumbull opted to make this film in 1971. To stretch that million dollars, the movie was filmed on the USS Valley Forge, a decommissioned aircraft carrier in Long Beach Harbor, and in a hangar at the Van Nuys airport. This allowed the film to dodge the expense of building spaceship interior sets, making the film look much more expensive than it was. The film’s story takes place on the USS Valley Forge, a space freighter leased to a government reforestation project. The Valley Forge and eight other ships carry samples of the last of Earth’s plant life. Starring Bruce Dern, Ron Rifkin, Cliff Potts and Jesse Vint, the film also features four performers whose faces are never seen. Portraying the “Drone” robots in the film were Mark Persons (“Dewey”), Larry Whisenhunt (“Louie”), and Steve Brown and Cheryl Sparks (both portraying “Huey”). The Drone robots were some of the most original robots ever on the big screen. The performers were all double-amputees who walked on their hands in lightweight robot suits. Bruce Dern has called the Drones “adorable,” and they are surprisingly charming and funny in the film. With the performers walking on their hands in the suits, the Drones have a unique, wobbly gait. And considering that they are essentially mute, featureless boxes with legs, the “body language” performances project wonderful personalities for the robots. George Lucas admits that they were his starting point for the creation of R2-D2.
