BAKERSFIELD COMIC CON SPECIAL GUESTS


MARVEL LEGEND

RON LIM

SATURDAY ONLY


Lim's interest in comics began as a child, when he read comics and drew his favorite heroes, including Batman and the Fantastic Four.
His first published work was for the independent comic book title Ex-Mutants, which he worked on from 1986 to 1988.
He was "discovered" by Marvel at a 1987 comic convention, and was hired on the spot. Lim penciled the Silver Surfer (vol. 3) series for almost six years (1988-94). He also penciled most of the "Infinity" trilogy of large-scale crossover limited series which Marvel published in the early 1990s-Infinity Gauntlet (1991), Infinity War (1992), and Infinity Crusade (1993). He returned to these characters to pencil the Thanos series in 2004.
He was also a regular artist on Captain America in 1990–1991, while he was also working regularly on Silver Surfer. Other Marvel series he worked on during the 1990s include X-Men 2099 (1993), Spider-Man Unlimited, Dragon Lines (1993), and Venom: Lethal Protector (1993).
While Lim primarily worked at Marvel, he also worked at DC for a time in the late 1990s, providing art for the third and final year of Chris Claremont's Sovereign Seven series. He also provided cover art & fill-in interiors for series like Hawkman, Green Lantern (vol.3) and Flash (vol. 2).
He has done work for the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise at Archie Comics, including Sonic #100.
In 1999 he was attached as artist to a failed revival of G.I. Joe to be published by Bench Press Comics with Larry Hama attached as writer.
Lim was a founding contributor to the ill-fated publisher Future Comics, and in 2002 penciled their fourth series, Metallix, for six issues.
Lim returned to Marvel in the 2000s illustrating several series associated with Marvel & Tom DeFalco's MC2 imprint, including Avengers Next, J2 and the Fantastic Five. He contributed art in 2007 to the comic adaptation of Laurell K. Hamilton's Guilty Pleasures, and since 2016 has been regularly providing variant covers for various Marvel one-shots, mini-series and event comics.

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.
