If you are an aspiring creator, Zack is the guy to meet: a great storyteller and a creator who has developed effective methods for promoting his work and building his audience.

Imagine if aliens came to Earth not in war or peace, but with a business deal: open up a spaceport here on Earth in exchange for advanced technology. But when our alien visitors break Port restrictions and wreak havoc in our cities, it falls to the newly formed Earth Security agents to hunt down and safely deport the dangerous rogue aliens back to the Port of Earth. A gritty sci-fi action thriller from new comic book writer Zack Kaplan (ECLIPSE) and Andrea Mutti (REBELS, STAR WARS, BATMAN ETERNAL, PROMETHEUS).

OR – My Boyfriend is a Bear Art Exhibition

Press Release:

Oni Press creator and artist Cat Farris are teaming up with Sequential Art Gallery + Studio to celebrate the release of the original graphic novel, My Boyfriend is a Bear, beginning with an artist reception, Thursday April 5th, from 6pm-10pm, with the exhibition lasting throughout the month. The showing will include Farris’s original process watercolor art used in the graphic novel, limited edition prints of the cover, and more! Limited copies of My Boyfriend is a Bear will also be available for purchase.

About My Boyfriend is a Bear: Nora has bad luck with men. When she meets an (actual) bear on a hike in the Los Angeles hills, he turns out to be the best romantic partner she’s ever had! He’s considerate, he’s sweet, he takes care of her. But he’s a bear, and winning over her friends and family is difficult. Not to mention he has to hibernate all winter. Can true love conquer all?

Cat Farris is the creator of the webcomic The Last Diplomat and the minicomic series Flaccid Badger, has worked for companies such as Amazon and Rovio Entertainment, and illustrated Dark Horse Comics’ Emily and the Strangers. Pamela Ribon is a best-selling novelist, and has written comics such as Rick and Morty™ for Oni Press and her original series Slam! for Boom! Studios. After over a decade working in television, she became a member of Disney Animation’s StoryTrust, where she has co-written Moana and the upcoming Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2.

“When I created the art for Bear’s hibernation sequence, I wanted to do it in a way that clearly set his time apart from Nora’s,” said artist Cat Farris. “Using actual watercolor seemed like a natural choice to me to create soft, almost dream-like images. Thanks to the Sequential Art Gallery, folks have a chance to see these pieces in all their original glory!”

“We have been watching Cat for years, seeing her hone both her art style and professionalism,” said Sequential Gallery curator, Kaebel JK Hashitani. “She started talking about My Boyfriend is a Bear last summer, sharing samples of the watercolor work for the book—that’s when we knew it was time to showcase her artwork!”

Sequential Art Gallery + Studio is open for viewing Mondays 2pm-7pm, and by appointment. The exhibit will close Monday April 30th.
