The Portland Comic Book show will feature an inking demonstration by Gary Martin, author of The Art of Comic-Book Inking. Gary Martin’s two volumes of The Art of Comic-Book Inking have become the industry-standard manuals for aspiring inkers seeking to take their work to the next level or for working professionals looking to broaden their skills base. Dark Horse Comics recently published a new edition of the ground breaking book, combining the two textbooks into a single volume and with expanded new material, including three additional blue-lined art boards featuring pencil art by master comics illustrators Jack Kirby, John Buscema, and Gil Kane.
Anina Bennett, co-creator of Heartbreakers and Boilerplate, will moderate a panel discussion “How to Break Into Comics as a Writer” Writers on the panel discussion include Kurt Busiek (Astro City), Dan Berman (God Complex), Adam Gallardo (Gear School), Brandon Jerwa (Battlestar Galactica) and Jamie S. Rich (Spellcheckers).
