A prolific comics convention grifter was run out of the proverbial town thanks to the vigilant efforts of the comic book Internet community. Rob Granito has reportedly been banished from a number of high profile conventions for his unscrupulous practices of tracing or otherwise duplicating existing comic book artwork and selling it as his own; misrepresenting himself to convention organizers and other parties as a working professional; claiming to be the "ghost" creator of famous comic book works; and, most distastefully, attempting to strengthen his fabricated reputation by lying about a working relationship with the late Dwayne McDuffie.
