Intervention, Rockville’s Sci-Fi / Fantasy Convention announces major expansion to its programming and guests for its 7th year

Intervention: The Intersection of Sci-Fi, Fantasy, and Future Media in Rockville, Maryland is proud to announce a major expansion for its 7th year bringing you a “Dragon Con-style” Sci-Fi and Fantasy experience to the Mid-Atlantic area, but in a smaller, easy to navigate size.

Guests include Arthur Darvill (Doctor Who’s Rory Williams, Legends of Tomorrow’s Rip Hunter), René Auberjonois (Star Trek: DS9’s Odo), Juliet Landau (Buffy’s Drusilla), Thomas Dolby (Professor, Composer, Musician), Gigi Edgley (Farscape’s Chiana), Dwight Schultz (The A-Team’s Howling Mad Murdock, Star Trek’s Lt. Barclay), Todd Haberkorn (Hetalia, Fairy Tail, Star Trek Continues), Robert Axlerod (Power Rangers’ Lord Zedd), Jon St. John (Duke Nukem), David Gerrold (Writer, Star Trek: TOS), and many more actors, authors, filmmakers, webcomics and beyond.

Our programming reflects modern and classic Sci–Fi and Fantasy such as Farscape, Star Trek, Anime, the DC Comics TV Universe, and more multi-genre geekery. This draft grid can be viewed on our website (https://interventioncon.com/programming/programming-descriptions/).
 Autograph and Photo Ops will be available all weekend with the celebrity guests in what will be a rare opportunity to meet the guests in a low stress atmosphere and have real conversations. Only 1200 tickets for the con will be sold.

2016 will also see the launch of “Creator Spaces,” a set of half-table spaces offered at no charge where creators can take turns displaying and selling their goods. Intervention also prides itself on being a friendly, welcoming space for fans of all ages and backgrounds. Its harassment policy has served as a basis for many other cons’ policies. It also has a dedicated children’s programming track for families to share.

Intervention 7 takes place September 16-18, 2016 at the Hilton Washington DC/Rockville in Rockville, MD. Full weekend tickets are available at the pre-registration rate of $60 until Sept. 2nd 2016. Daily tickets also go on sale Sept. 2nd, 2016. Full Weekend Tickets at the door are $65. For more information about the event or to register, visit www.interventioncon.com.

Conventions and events / Baltimore Comicon - 03 September 2016
« on: August 03, 2016, 12:08:29 PM »
BALTIMORE, Md., (August 3, 2016) -- On Saturday night, September 3, the comic book industry, including professionals, retailers, and fans, will gather at the Hyatt Regency Baltimore to honor the 2016 Harvey Award Nominees for 2015 comic work and present the Harveys to their recipients. This is an exciting evening, highlighted by our return host Vivek J. Tiwary, a #1 New York Times bestselling author, Tony Award-winning Broadway producer, and the founder of multi-platform arts and entertainment company Tiwary Entertainment Group.

Harvey Awards tickets are on sale NOW! Tickets to the event, which includes full cocktail hour (cash bar), full service dinner (featuring a Baltimore Crabcake!), awards ceremony, and a gift bag, are now available for $125. Tickets are available at our website via credit card at baltimorecomiccon.com/tickets.

Host Vivek J. Tiwary's graphic novel, The Fifth Beatle: The Brian Epstein Story (Dark Horse Comics), is based on the untold life story of Beatles' manager Brian Epstein. On October 25, 2016, Dark Horse Comics will be publishing a special trade paperback Expanded Edition of The Fifth Beatle, featuring never-before-seen art, essays and more. Written by Tiwary, with art by Andrew C. Robinson and Kyle Baker, it received worldwide critical acclaim and won a number of prestigious literary awards, including two Harvey Awards (Best Original Graphic Novel and Best Biographical, Historical, or Journalistic Presentation) and the Will Eisner Comic Industry Award for Best Reality-Based Work. It is a Lambda Literary Finalist for Best LGBT Graphic Novel, an American Library Association Great Graphic Novel for Teens, and has been added to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Library and Archives Permanent Collection. The Fifth Beatle is now being adapted into a multi-part TV event series that has secured unprecedented access to Beatles music. Vivek will be adapting his work for television and serving as executive producer.

Vivek has also just acquired the TV and film rights to Astronaut Academy, the middle-grade graphic novel series from bestselling author-illustrator Dave Roman (Agnes Quill), with plans to turn the books into both a live-action TV series and a film franchise, and talks are underway with writers, networks, and studios to adapt the coming-of-age adventure story set at a fantastical space station school.

Vivek's illustrated Young Adult novel Asha Ascending, with art by the award-winning Sara Richard (My Little Pony, Jem The Holograms, Ghostbusters) is currently being serialized chapter-by-chapter free at AshaAscending.com. Taking place in a near-future where surgical implants access a virtual Internet, Asha Ascending follows teenage coder Asha Rai as she helps irresponsible party-boy Hal Haven save his mother's life, while they race against an evil faction to unlock the code to immortality.

"Hosting last year's Harvey Awards was the best night of my life in comics," said Tiwary, "I got to introduce beloved luminaries like Jules Feiffer and the late Darwyn Cooke, while honoring the creators of today's most inspiring work. But to quote Al Pacino -- 'I'm just getting warmed up!' See you in Baltimore!"

On Broadway, Tiwary's productions have won a combined 25 Tony Awards. They include such groundbreaking work as Green Day's American Idiot, The Addams Family, A Raisin In The Sun, and Mel Brooks' The Producers. Vivek is currently working with Alanis Morissette and Pulitzer and Tony Award-winner Tom Kitt to adapt Morissette's breakthrough album Jagged Little Pill for Broadway.

Vivek has served on the Board of Directors for Valiant Entertainment, a multi-platform company that boasts the third largest universe of comic book characters and has secured a 5-film deal with Sony Pictures.

Vivek held a number of major label music-industry positions working with artists ranging from Bruce Springsteen to Britney Spears.

In addition to hosting the awards ceremony, Vivek will be speaking on a panel and signing books throughout the weekend at the Baltimore Comic-Con.

The Harvey Awards are one of the comic book industry's oldest and most respected awards. The Harveys recognize outstanding achievements in over 20 categories. They are the only industry awards both nominated and selected by the full body of comic book professionals. Additionally, the Hero Initiative will present 2 awards to outstanding members of the comics community.

The Hero Initiative was established to aid comic creators with a financial safety net when in need of emergency medical aid, financial support for essentials of life, and an avenue back into paying work. In the years since its inception, the board has created an award to recognize those individuals in the industry that have dedicated their talent over the lifetime of their careers to the comic book community at-large, achieving the status of Hero. Previous recipients include Denis Kitichen, Herb Trimpe, Sal Buscema, John Romita, Joe Kubert, Nick Cardy, Neal Adams, and George Perez. Who will be this year's lifetime Hero?

The Dick Giordano Humanitarian of the Year Award will also be presented at the Harvey Awards Banquet. Giordano, who passed away in early 2010, was part of Hero Initiative's Board of Directors. He was also a legendary artist, a guiding force at Charlton Comics and DC Comics for many years, a mentor to his colleagues, and a friend to all who knew him. His legacy epitomizes the caring and commitment Hero Initiative strives to achieve. In his honor, the Dick Giordano Humanitarian of the Year Award will recognize one person in comics each year who has demonstrated the generosity and integrity Dick brought to the charity, and to the comic book community at large.

John Byrne To Appear At Star Trek Las Vegas 2016 Convention

Legendary Comic Book Creator John Byrne Will Attend His First Convention In A Decade

 San Diego, CA (August 2, 2016) –  Creation Entertainment’s 15th Annual Las Vegas Star Trek Convention 2016 kicks off this week and one of the special guests in attendance will be John Byrne, a titan in his field whose contributions to comic books cannot be overstated.
 
 Not only will Byrne be making a rare appearance at this week’s Star Trek convention, he will be signing copies of his Star Trek books for IDW Publishing at the IDW booth throughout the weekend. Please note that, in keeping with the theme of the convention, Byrne will only be signing his Star Trek works, including the brand-new New Visions Special “The Cage” photo-story, which will be making its convention debut here.
 
 Fans can meet Mr. Byrne at IDW booth #54 and get their Star Trek books signed in Las Vegas this weekend as well as pick up IDW's Convention Variant of the Star Trek 50th Anniversary Cover Celebration. IDW has commissioned a special triptych drawing by Star Trek artist J.K. Woodward chronicling the 50 years of Star Trek cast members and produced three variant covers. Each connecting cover is limited to only 250 copies, and the first cover, of Star Trek: The Original Series and Star Trek: The Next Generation, will be available for sale at the IDW table during the convention at a cost of $10 per copy. The remaining two connecting variants are show exclusive variants for the Star Trek Mission show in New York City, and the 2016 New York Comic Con, respectively.

Conventions and events / DC Comics at San Diego Comicon 2016
« on: July 22, 2016, 12:21:17 PM »
Now that the word is out about the incredible array of activities in the DC booth (#1915) at Comic-Con International: San Diego, fans are probably wondering just when exactly they should be lining up to get that autograph from their favorite writer, artist or movie star.

Have no fear, DC is here to help! Here’s the schedule of activities in the DC booth requiring a wristband during Comic-Con weekend.

This year, wristbands will be distributed differently from years past. On Thursday, Friday and Saturday, wristbands for the below listed activities will be distributed in the Sails Pavilion of the Convention Center as part of the WB queue line. The line opens at 6am, and wristbands will be handed by a lottery system, not by a first come, first served basis.

Fans will come up and choose between a wristbanded event taking place in either the DC or WB booth (two separate booth locations). Once an event is selected (only one can be chosen), a raffle ticket will be drawn; if the ticket has a unique stamp, a wristband will be provided. If it doesn’t, fans can go back in line to try again. This lottery will be open to all, including exhibitors and professionals.

For the Batman Arkham VR demos, wristbands will be handed out on a first-come, first served basis for all demos scheduled between 10am and 2pm on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. For demos after 2pm, fans can go directly to the demo station in the DC booth for a wristband. On Sunday, fans can get their wristband at the Arkham demo station in the DC booth once the show floor opens.

Here’s the lineup for signings and events in the DC booth requiring a wristband:

Thursday, 7/21

Kendal, 11th July 2016: Tickets for the main events at this year's Lakes International Comic Art Festival are on sale now - and a special "Clash of the Toon Titans", pitting Tintin against Asterix, will launch this year's weekend-long celebrations in October.

 Guests at this year's Festival (14th - 16th October 2016) include Charlie Adlard (artist on The Walking Dead), Jordi Bernet (Torpedo and Jonah Hex), Rufus Dayglo (2000AD's "Bad Company", Last Gang in Town), Isabel Greenberg (The Encyclopedia of Early Earth), Joe Kelly (I Kill Giants, Deadpool), Bryan Lee O’Malley (Scott Pilgrim, Seconds), Luke McGarry and Steve McGarry, Mick McMahon (2000AD), Leah Moore and John Reppion, artist and Festival art designer Ken Niimura, and Paco Roca, best known for his award-winning graphic novel Wrinkles.

For the Opening Night Comics Clash, putting the case for Belgium's world-famous boy detective Tintin is Dr Benoît Peeters, novelist, philosopher, Professor of Comics at Lancaster University, and author of two books on Tintin’s creator, Herge. Holding out gallantly against the oppressors will be Peter Kessler, BAFTA award-winning producer and author of ‘The Complete Guide to Asterix’.

Joining them live on stage will be Walking Dead artist Charlie Adlard, comic book writer Leah Moore, Australian comics scholar and creator Stuart Medley and Amiens Comics Festival Director Pascal Mériaux. On screen will be a host of comics artists, authors and readers, with the ever-popular comic creator Hannah Berry acting as referee.

 To top it all, our special festival guests, all the way from Los Angeles, Luke and Steve McGarry, will be bringing their fast-draw cartooning talents to the table illustrating the entire event as it happens.

 International and British comic creators - writers, artists, publishers and retailers - are heading to Kendal for a packed weekend of comic celebration in the Lakes in October, crammed with panels, exhibitions, children's events and other activities. The town will be entirely given over to comics, with business owners lining up to support the Festival's famous "Windows Trail", providing store front space to display comics art created by artists and local groups and school children.

 While panel events and film screenings are ticketed, the Comics Clock Tower offers plenty of free access to many comic creators and their work, and there's an exciting line up of free events lined up for children, too, in assorted venues across Kendal.

 "Having learned lots of great lessons from our growing audiences and previous international guests, I think we have one of our best programmes yet," enthuses Festival Director Julie Tait, "It aims to feed the hunger of comic art fans whilst also appealing to those new to it all or, at least, new to a comic art festival of this kind.

 "We have some of the most exciting and inspiring artists and writers working in comics, film, animation and gaming from across the globe all descending on what we think is one of the most beautiful towns in the world."

The October weekend is just one of a number of comics projects from the Festival, which has included the world premiere performance of Black Dog – the Dreams of Paul Nash by Dave McKean that took place in May and will return to Kendal for the Festival.
