    OH – The Brian Michael Bendis Experience

    bendis2Brian Michael Bendis appears at the Cleveland Institute of Art on Thursday April 3, 2014 from 5:00PM – 6:30PM!

    Press Release:

    Brian Michael Bendis (CIA Class of 1991) is an award-winning comics creator, New York Times bestseller and one of the most successful writers working in mainstream comics. He’ll share his wit and wisdom – and maybe even a little career advice – with aspiring graphic novelists and comics lovers in this visiting artist lecture, which is free and open to the public.

    Bendis is most recently the writer of All New X-Men and Uncanny X-Men, bringing about a new Renaissance for the X-Men franchise. He also launched a brand-new Guardians Of The Galaxy series as Marvel Comics gears up for the Disney motion picture of the same name. All three books debuted at number one on national sales charts.

    Bendis completed nine years at the helm of Marvel’s popular Avengers franchise by writing every issue of the New Avengers, plus debuting the hit books Avengers, Mighty Avengers and Dark Avengers, along with the wildly successful ‘event’ projects Avengers vs X-Men, House of M, Secret War, Secret Invasion, Age of Ultron, and Siege.

    Cinematheque presents Checefsky
    Make an evening of it: stick around after Bendis’s talk for The Cinematheque’s presentation of The Films of Bruce Checefsky, starting at 6:45pm. Learn about the other side of CIA’s mild-mannered gallery director who, for the past 13 years has moonlighted as a maker of short, independent films that have shown widely around the world.

    Fifth Annual Lake Effect Comic Book Convention

    David Prowse to Attend Cincinnati Comic Expo 2014

    David-Prowse-Banner-Website-revised-1

    Press Release:

    Dave Prowse to Attend 2014 Cincinnati Comic Expo!

    Cincinnati, OH – February 2014 - Science fiction fans and Sith Lords in Cincinnati have cause to rejoice with the announcement that Dave Prowse, the actor behind the mask of Darth Vader, will be coming to The Queen City for the 2014 Cincinnati Comic Expo being held this September at the Duke Energy Convention Center.

    Prowse, a veteran actor of film and television, is best known for portraying the tragic villain, Darth Vader, in all three films of the original Star Wars trilogy. A champion bodybuilder, Mr. Prowse embodied the iconic character, whose distinct baritone voice was provided by James Earl Jones. The towering figure of Dave Prowse’s Darth Vader made an immediate impression on cinema audiences including Cincinnati Comic Expo founder, Andrew Satterfield: “I recall the first time seeing Star Wars at the local Dent Drive-In. The scene where Darth Vader walks through the rebel blast doors and interrogates the rebels was terrifying. However, I couldn’t take my eyeballs off the screen.”

    While Dave Prowse is a familiar face at comic book and science fiction conventions in Europe, the actor is more discerning when it comes to attending events in the United States. The fifth annual Cincinnati Comic Expo marks the first time that Dave Prowse has come to Cincinnati and is the only opportunity Star Wars fans in the Midwest will have to meet this legend of the silver screen. Satterfield is appreciative that the actor has included Cincinnati as part of his touring schedule: “Each year Mr. Prowse hand selects a few USA signing appearances. We are honored the Sith Lord himself chose the 5th annual Cincinnati Comic Expo.” In addition to signing autographs and taking pictures with guests, the actor will be taking part in panel discussions; telling stories about how Star Wars came to life and answering questions from fans.

    Dave Prowse will be joined at this year’s convention by fellow Star Wars alum Peter Mayhew, who played the Millennium Falcon’s heroic and hairy co-pilot Chewbacca. Additional media guests also include former Power Ranger and mixed martial arts fighter Jason David Frank, Jewel Staite from the cult hit television program Firefly, and John Rhys Davies who is best known for his roles in the Indiana Jones and Lord of the Rings film series. More guest announcements are expected in advance of the 2014 Cincinnati Comic Book Expo, which will be held from Friday, September 19, through Sunday, September 21.

    Biography

    Brian Michael Bendis is an American comic book writer and former artist. He has won critical acclaim, including five Eisner Awards for both his creator-owned work and his work on various Marvel Comics books.

    Starting out with crime and noir comics, Bendis eventually moved to mainstream superhero work. With Bill Jemas and Mark Millar, Bendis was the primary architect of the Ultimate Marvel Universe, launching Ultimate Spider-Man in 2000, on which he continues as writer to the present day. He relaunched the Avengers franchise with New Avengers in 2004, and has also written the Marvel “event” storylines “House of M”, “Secret War”, 2008′s “Secret Invasion” and 2010′s “Siege”.

    Though Bendis has cited comic book writers such as Frank Miller and Alan Moore, his own writing influences are less rooted in comics, drawing on the work of David Mamet, Richard Price, and Aaron Sorkin, whose dialogue Bendis feels are “the best in any medium.”

    In addition to writing comics, he has also worked in television, video games and film, and taught writing at Portland State University. He will begin teaching at University of Oregon starting in Fall 2013, and his book Words for Pictures will be out in Spring 2014 from Random House.
