Voltron’s Shiro & Allura Appear at MomoCon 2018

Excited about the Voltron Season 5 premiere on Netflix last week? Join us at MomoCon 2018 to meet Josh Keaton and Kimberly Brooks, the voices of Shiro and Allura!

Kimberly Brooks is an industry proven voiceover dynamo, gaining recognition for her performances on many respected animated shows and interactive video games, and has been performing since she was eight years old. She got her start in animation voiceover on Nickelodeon’s, Rugrats. She can also be heard on Netflix’s reboot of Voltron voicing Princess Allura, on Nickelodeon’s Winx Club voicing Stormy, on Cartoon Network’s Steven Universe as Jasper, on Comedy Central’s South Park as Classi, as well as many other animated shows. Kimberly’s work in interactive video games includes Ashley Williams on the Mass Effect Series. She can also be heard on the Batman: Arkham game series as the ORACLE, as well as the notable roles as Daisy Fitzroy in BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea and BAD JUJU in the more recent Skylanders: Imaginators. Kimberly will provide the first autograph free at MomoCon.

Josh Keaton was blessed by the gods (well, except Hades) not too long after he won the role of Young Hercules in Disney’s Hercules animated film. But that wasn’t enough to satiate his thirst for being awesome, and thus Josh proceeded to work his way up the ladder of being as many superhero voices as he could. He ended up lending his vocal performances to such iconic heroes as Peter Parker/Spider-Man in The Spectacular Spider-Man, and Hal Jordan in Green Lantern: The Animated Series. He sped his way into things such as Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths and DC Superhero Girls as The Flash, and voiced human Jack Darby, in Transformers: Prime. Recently, Josh decided all that still wasn’t enough for him, he had to have his own giant robot to bring justice to the entire galaxy! And so he stepped into the role of Shiro in the hit Dreamworks series Voltron: Legendary Defender, out now on Netflix. He has also started taking on smaller roles, such as Ant-Man in Avengers: Secret Wars. Yet, despite all of these previous voice over accomplishments and more (Like Revolver Ocelot in Metal Gear Solid 3, King Graham in the King’s Quest revival, Spyro in Skylanders, Valerian Mengsk in Starcraft II, King Anduin Wrynn in World of Warcraft, and Lann in World of Final Fantasy), he just had to give it all up and be the bad guy; namely Norman Osborn in the new animated series Marvel’s Spider-Man.  Josh will provide the first autograph free at MomoCon.

GA – Why Art? Signing

Press Release:

Avid Bookshop presents local author and artist Eleanor Davis for her book WHY ART? This event will take place at our Prince Ave. location on Sunday, February 25, 2018 from 5:30 to 7:00 PM. It is free and open to the public.

ABOUT THE BOOK:
What is “Art”? It’s widely accepted that art serves an important function in society. But the concept falls under such an absurdly large umbrella and can manifest in so many different ways. Art can be self indulgent, goofy, serious, altruistic, evil, or expressive, or any number of other things. But how can it truly make lasting, positive change? 

In WHY ART?, acclaimed graphic novelist Eleanor Davis (HOW TO BE HAPPY) unpacks some of these concepts in ways both critical and positive, in an attempt to illuminate the highest possible potential an artwork might hope to achieve. A work of art unto itself, Davis leavens her exploration with a sense of humor and a thirst for challenging preconceptions of art worth of Magritte, instantly drawing the reader in as a willing accomplice in her quest.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Eleanor Davis is an American cartoonist and illustrator who creates comic works and other art for both adolescent and adult audiences.

In August 2014, Fantagraphics Books published Davis’ first collection of stories HOW TO BE HAPPY. SLATE described the collection as “a mix of evocative, geometric watercolors and fluid pen-and-ink cartoons, HOW TO BE HAPPY tells stories of sad people, lonely people, strong people, confident people, all trying to find a tiny bit of happiness in life.” Upon the publication of HOW TO BE HAPPY, comics critic Richard Bruton described Davis as “without question, a major young creator.”

Davis teaches comic book storytelling classes at the University of Georgia.
