COMICS INDUSTRY UNITES WITH LOVE IS LOVE BENEFIT BOOK IN SUPPORT OF ORLANDO TRAGEDY
 
San Diego, CA (September 21, 2016) – IDW Publishing, with the support of DC Entertainment, will honor the victims of Orlando’s Pulse Nightclub tragedy by publishing LOVE IS LOVE, an anthology graphic novel curated by writer Marc Andreyko (BATWOMAN, WONDER WOMAN ’77). In the wake of this devastating event, Andreyko assembled a group of fellow comic book creators to contribute to the benefit project. Andreyko received an overwhelming response across the comic book community and beyond, with over 200 writers and artists lending their talents to LOVE IS LOVE, a collection of over 100 short graphic stories. All material has been donated by the writers, artists, and editors, with all proceeds going to victims, survivors, and their families via EQUALITY FLORIDA.
 
 LOVE IS LOVE will debut in comic book shops and bookstores this December. The anthology graphic novel is a 144-page love letter to the LGBTQ community containing moving and heartfelt stories—some using iconic DC characters—from some of the greatest talent in comics, including Phil Jimenez, Steve Sadowski, Paul Jenkins, Mike Carey, Matt Wagner, Marguerite Bennett, Aneke, Damon Lindelof, Patton Oswalt, Steven Orlando, Rafael Albuquerque, Jason Aaron, Jason Latour, James Asmus, Ming Doyle, James Tynion IV, Cecil Castellucci, Brandon Peterson, Jesus Saiz, Olivier Coipel, Leinil Yu, Elsa Charretier, and many more to be announced.
 
“When tragedy happens, art responds. And after the Pulse massacre, the comics community responded quickly, decisively, and with open hearts,” said project organizer and writer Andreyko. “I could not be more proud of this book, or to be a member of the comics community. The talent and emotion on every page is staggering. LOVE IS LOVE mourns the 49 lost, honors the survivors, and celebrates love in all forms.”
 
“When Marc brought this project to me, there was no hesitation about us getting involved,” said IDW Chief Creative Officer Chris Ryall. “To echo Marc’s sentiments, we are proud of the hard work and talent that has gone into this project and to be involved in any way to support the survivors and their families in the face of tragedy.”
 
“We’re deeply thankful to all the participants who donated their work to LOVE IS LOVE,” said Sarah Gaydos, Group Editor for IDW Publishing. “The outpouring of emotion from their work honors the LGBTQ community, and helps express the grief we’re all feeling.”
 
“Marc's heartfelt passion for this cause and this project has inspired everyone involved in LOVE IS LOVE,” explains Jamie Rich, Group Editor of DC’s Vertigo imprint. “As an editor on the book, I continue to be moved every day by the expressions of hope and love the contributors have put forth, and can only imagine the profound impact the book will have on readers, as well.”
 
The contributors behind LOVE IS LOVE have banded together to send a powerful message through their art that they stand with the victims of this national tragedy. Help spread the love this December and become part of this historic comics event.

Kendal 20th September 2016: The Lakes International Comic Art Festival is delighted to announce this year' special 24 Hour Marathon Comic project featuring a stellar line up of talent, which aims to raise awareness of the medical condition OCD - Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

Written by Alex Paknadel and Dan Watters, the artists are Dan Berry (editor), Craig Thompson, Charlie Adlard, Emma Vieceli, Petteri Tikannen, Bruce Mutard, Nick Brokenshire, Bryan Talbot, Ken Niimura, Joe Decie, Mike Medaglia and Jake Phillips, offering an exciting mix of styles of art for this challenging charity project.

Between them, they'll produce the comic on 13-14th October during the Festival weekend in Kendal. It will be printed by 3.00pm on the 15th and launched in the Comic Clock Tower where charity OCD Action will also be based.

 All profits from the sale of this special comic will go to OCD Action alongside a percentage from other merchandise.

“I’m excited to participate in the OCD Comic," says US guest Craig Thompson, creator of the award-winning graphic novel Blankets, "because it sidesteps the sleep deprivation and isolation of the 24 hour comic, for something social and collaborative and much more energetically manageable — a sprint and passing of the baton, rather than a grueling, joint-destroying marathon. I'm very much looking forward to it!”

"As a notion in itself the collaborative process of this project excited me, so I said yes; absolutely," says Festival patron Emma Vieceli of this daunting marathon draw and concept, whose work includes the critically acclaimed independent web series, BREAKS created with Malin Ryden.

"Having now seen the amazing list of co-creators, I'm double-excited about it."

"This will be the first 24 hour comic I've ever contributed to," says award-wining artist Bryan Talbot, creator of the Luther Arkrwright and Grandville graphic novel sagas. "Two pages in two hours? I must be mad!"

"People always say how fast I am," enthuses Walking Dead artist Charlie Adlard of the challenge. "Well, this is where I prove them right. The race is on!"

"I am very excited by the challenge of having to produce pages in such a short space of time!" says Nick Brokenshire, the artist on IDW's Amelia Cole fantasy series. "And for a great cause - Fun!"

"'This project is so important and I am very happy to be involved," says Mike Medaglia, whose critically-acclaimed work will also feature in the "Five Bridges" exhibition at the Festival.

"Comics have a unique way of engaging new readers and re-engaging past readers with important subjects," he continues. "They can bring information on a range of subjects to readers who don't normally read up on such topics, and perhaps they even find information to help them in their lives. Then, for readers who do read on specific topics regularly, like OCD, comics is a new way for them to approach the subject.

"I think the depth that comics can reach in terms of having a positive effect on people's lives is yet to even begin to be discovered. This project is certainly a big step in that direction."

The Lakes International Comic Art Festival is proud to be supporting the work of OCD Action. As the UK’s largest and most comprehensive OCD charity, OCD Action is able to provide accurate and up-to-date information on OCD and related conditions. The charity runs a helpline, advocacy service, support group network and forum to help people with the disorder, and also works to raise awareness in the media and campaigns to improve access to quality treatment for OCD.

The Charity also has access to a wide range of case studies from individuals willing to share their own story about struggling with OCD.

“We’re thrilled and honoured to be given the opportunity of working with this amazing festival," says Charlie Loveday, Lead Fundraiser of OCD Action.

"OCD is an often invisible condition that affects two per cent of the population," he notes. "Many people in the comics community will have the disorder themselves. There are likely to be attendees of this festival itself who are living with the condition, either too afraid to seek help or unaware that the distressing thoughts and compulsions they are subject to have an explanation. So we hope that our presence at this Festival, and the comic being produced on OCD, will help these people realise that OCD is a treatable condition and that the help is out there.”

Kendal 15th September 2016: The Lakes International Comic Art Festival has revealed its full Exhibitions plans around this year's three day-long weekend (14th - 16th October) in Kendal, alongside its ever-popular Fringe events, which include Guardian political cartoonist Martin Rowson creating a mural right outside local MP and Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron's offices!
Of special interest to locals - and anyone affected by last year's winter floods across the UK - will be "Five Bridges: Stories of the Flood", an exhibition featuring art by Mike Medaglia, Lisa Woynarski and Farokh Soltani. Sponsored by local business Atlantis Kitchens, this is a unique comics exhibition where the human stories of flooding are depicted through comics and brought to life in a dynamic audio performance.

Featuring five different stories of people who experienced the flooding, it tells the human stories behind the flooding of the River Kent which devastated parts of Kendal. Highlighting the wider picture of the interrelatedness of all human/nature relationships, these stories provide a human experience to the often abstract and complex issue of climate change. After experiencing the stories from the flood, audience members will have a chance to contribute their own responses, drawing a self-portrait and telling their own stories, adding to and growing the exhibition.

In the works for this year's Festival - now in its fourth year - are a wide range of events at the Shakespeare Centre, offering a “Discovery Zone” of comic creators from around the globe, including Australia's Gregory Mackay (Anders and the Comet, Anders and the Volcano; Francis Bear), Bruce Mutard (The Sacrifice, The Silence, A Mind of Love), Tim McEwen, Laura Renfrew and Stuart Medley; guests from Finland, third largest comic reading nation per capita in the world; and the opportunity to find out more  about the Cintiq tablet from Festival sponsors WACOM, technology used by many comic artists.

 On Sunday, there will be the chance to meet Dr Ian Williams, Paula Knight and Mike Medaglia from Jessica Kingsley Publisher/ Singing Dragon and Myriad Editions, to find out more about the current explosion of comics about medicine and health related issues. Graphic Medicine explores the frontier between the medium of comics and healthcare, through autobiographical, fictional, and educational works: an area of study, a community, a movement for change.

 Veteran comic creator Gilbert Shelton (creator of the Furry Freak Brothers and Fat Freddy's Cat) and Hunt Emerson (creator of Calculus Cat) are just two creators who will be involved in comics skulduggery in the Brewery Arts Centre-based "Malt Room of Mischief", co-ordinated by long time Festival supporters Knockabout Comics. Look out for Fez Tai Chi classes, cabaret, art exhibitions and more as part of this extraordinary concoction of comic delights!

 Comic artist Joe Decie, who delighted Festival visitors with the weekend-long creation of his incredible wall mural outside Ruskins bar on Kendal's high street last year, is back in October, this time transferring his skills to the walls of Morrisons supermarket! As usual, we have no idea what he's planning - but we're sure it will delight shoppers.

 Talking of Ruskins, the popular bar will be given over to a tribute to the works of comic writer Mark Millar - whose works include Kick-Ass, Secret Service, Jupiter’s Legacy, Ultimate X-Men and, more recently, MPH, Huck and Empress... and talking of the latter, be sure to look out for this year's Festival beer of the same name, the work of local brewery Bowness Beer, sporting a label designed by one of last year's guest, Stuart Immonen.

 Withe the town brought to life with comics in the windows of many local shops thanks to the annual Windows Trail, a special cartoon installation inspired by  the work of Carol Hanson as part of the Dementia and Imagination Programme, there's no shortage of things to see for free around town. (Donations welcome).

Festival Exhibitions

In addition to "Five Bridges", Festival goers will have the chance to get inside the head of internationally-acclaimed comic artist Ken Niimura, with his exhibition at the Brewery titled "Making a Scene". Ken was winner of the Golden Prize in the 5th International Manga Award and was nominated for both Eisner and Eagle Awards for his work on I Kill Giants, created in collaboration with fellow guest Joe Kelly. His illustration book Zero reveals both a rare and diverse talent, while Travelling and Henshin, both short story collections, display that intoxicating combination of fine art and strong storyline.

 Ken, who designed this year's Festival poster, has also curated "Young, Talented And Beautiful - Five Rising Stars from Japan" presenting work by Est Em, Takehito Moriizumi, Tsuchika Nishimura, Keigo Shinzo and Miki Yamamoto - some of the most acclaimed an interesting authors of the new generation of manga artists, sharing a common interest in depicting the daily life in nowadays Japan through a combination of unique art and a very personal narrative.
An exhibition featuring the work of Finnish artist Hanneriina Moisseinen, just one of the great guests from Finland this year is also taking place and, beyond Kendal, we're delighted that the Vallum Gallery at the University of Cumbria Institute of the Arts, Brampton Road, Carlisle will be offering another chance to see the "Phono+Graphic" exhibition curated by Festival patron and top artist Sean Phillips.

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.

 Also on the guest list, in partnership with The Finnish Institute in London, are comic creators Hanneriina Moisseinen, Virpi Oinonen, Ville Ranta, Johanna "Roju" Rojola and Petteri Tikkanen, along with musicians Niko Kumpuvaara and Aleksi Ranta - whose visit is part of an extension to the Lakes Festival's rapidly-expanding Comic Creator Exchange Program with other major comics events around the globe.

 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.

« on: August 26, 2016, 02:41:06 AM »
Radio Imagination: Artists in the Archive of Octavia E. Butler, organized by Clockshop, features six new commissions inspired by the Octavia E. Butler papers at the Huntington Library. The exhibition is part of Clockshop’s year-long program throughout 2016 celebrating the life and work of Pasadena science fiction writer Octavia E. Butler (1947-2006), and is on view in the Armory’s Caldwell Gallery from October 2, 2016 through January 8, 2017. A reception, free and open to the public, will take place on Saturday, October 1, 2016 from 6-8pm.

Radio Imagination: Artists in the Archive of Octavia E. Butler debuts new work by Laylah Ali, Courtesy the Artists (Alexandro Segade and Malik Gaines), Lauren Halsey, Mendi + Keith Obadike, Connie Samaras, and Cauleen Smith—contemporary artists working in performance, sound, installation, photography, drawing, and video. Forming an unprecedented collaboration with Clockshop, the Huntington Library in San Marino granted these artists access to work in Butler’s archive. The Octavia E. Butler Collection at the Huntington Library consists of 8,000 individually cataloged items and more than 80 boxes of additional ephemera. The commissioned artists comprise an intergenerational group of emerging and established artists, each with an affinity for Butler’s work and a long-standing interest in her oeuvre.

Radio Imagination: Artists in the Archive of Octavia E. Butler includes related programming. Courtesy the Artists’ performance will repeat three times on opening night across the street from the Armory at the Levitt Pavilion in Memorial Park. In addition, a tour of Butler’s Pasadena, led by Butler biographer and founder of the Octavia Butler Legacy Network Ayana A.H. Jamieson, will meet at the Armory on December 4. On October 19 an in-gallery talk will feature Radio Imagination artist Connie Samaras in conversation with writer Lynell George and on December 11 artist Lauren Halsey will talk with writer Fred Moten.

Additional Radio Imagination events happening this fall include a musical performance by Nicole Mitchell and a panel discussion on radical reproduction at the Huntington; and a screening of short films at REDCAT curated by Erin Christovale.

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.

Press Contact: Amanda Lundberg, [email protected]

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.

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
