    OR – The Sculptor Signing

    scm-sculptorScott McCloud appears in conversation with Daniel H. Wilson at Powell’s Books on Wednesday, February 11th at 7:00 PM!

    David Smith is giving his life for his art — literally. Thanks to a deal with Death, the young sculptor gets his childhood wish: to sculpt anything he can imagine with his bare hands. But now that he only has 200 days to live, deciding “what” to create is harder than he thought, and discovering the love of his life at the 11th hour isn’t making it any easier! Scott McCloud’s The Sculptor (First Second) is a story of desire taken to the edge of reason and beyond; of the frantic, clumsy dance steps of young love; and of the world’s greatest city gorgeously depicted at street level. It’s about the small, warm, human moments of everyday life… and the great, surging forces that lie just under the surface. McCloud wrote the book on how comics work (Understanding Comics: The Invisible Art); now he vaults into great fiction with a breathtaking, funny, and unforgettable new work. McCloud will be joined in conversation by Daniel H. Wilson, author of Robogenesis and How to Survive a Robot Uprising.

    Getting Respect: Comics Go to College with Dark Horse’s Diana Schutz, Too Much Coffee Man’s Shannon Wheeler, PSU’s Susan Kirtley, and PSU’s Jon Holt

    Room: C120
    Time: 6:30 p.m.–7:15 p.m.
    Comics and graphic novels have come into their own as subjects worthy of—indeed, demanding—attention from academia. Historians and cultural theorists teach courses, hold conferences, and publish books on various aspects of sequential art, and colleges and universities teach courses in comics as literature and social history as well as how to make them. Here to give an overview of various ideas about and approaches to comics studies are a cross section of comics scholars and teachers, including Diana Schutz (longtime Dark Horse executive editor and instructor at Portland Community College), Shannon Wheeler (creator of Too Much Coffee Man and instructor at Portland State College of the Arts), Susan Kirtley (director of rhetoric and composition at Portland State University; author of Lynda Barry: Girlhood through the Looking Glass), and Jon Holt (assistant professor of Japanese literature and manga at Portland State University). The panel is moderated by Danny Fingeroth (Superman on the Couch, Disguised as Clark Kent).

    Press Release:

    MICHAEL GOLDEN MEETS THE TRAIL BLAZERS!

    (A Comic Con Night to Remember)

    PORTLAND, OR – Call it a little “February” Madness, but with the Wizard Portland Comic Con approaching like a full court press, the area’s leading pop culture show isn’t letting any lead up time idle, tapping slam dunk artist Michael Golden (“Fantastic Four,” “Deadpool”) as the shooter creating an amazing art piece featuring five of the Portland Trail Blazers most recognizable players.  

    This combination of the all star talent turned into a great promotion for both Wizard and the Trail Blazers, with 20,000 copies of the Golden poster printed and  given to all attendees of the Miami Heat vs. Portland Trail Blazers game Thursday 1/8/15!

    The five players dominating the Portland skyline are: holding the W, Nicolas Batum; holding the moon, Wesley Matthews; holding Rip City, Robin Lopez; holding the Earth, LaMarcus Aldridge; holding Trail Blazers, Damian Lillard.

    It was all part of Comic Con Night at the Trail Blazers game, as professional cosplayers were roaming the stands and cheering the Trail Blazers on with the fans, as they went on to beat the Heat 99-83. 

    But the shot clock hasn’t timed out on the fun!

    Along with the artist of this exclusive piece, Michael Golden—who will be at the Wizard Portland show to sign the poster for those 20K fans who received one—all those attending Wizard Portland Comic Con can meet a variety of amazing talent, including Punisher artist Mike Zeck, writer/editor Renee Witterstaetter (of “She-Hulk” and “Guardians of the Galaxy” comics), actors such as Stephen Amell from “Arrow,” Bruce Campbell from “Evil Dead,” and a number of “The Walking Dead” cast members including  Michael Rooker (also in the film, “Guardians of the Galaxy”).

    In addition, fans can also meet some of the Trail Blazers at Wizard World Comic Con Portland. And again, get those posters signed! 

    Now that’s a scoring opportunity!

    The show takes place January 23-25. For more details visit:   http://www.wizardworld.com/portland.html

    Who is Neal Adams? Neal Adams is a towering figure in the world of comic book creation and art. Neal has had legendary ‘runs’ on Batman, X-Men, Green Lantern/Green Arrow, and Deadman. Adams rescued Batman from the campy nostalgia of the television show, and re-fitted him in his present incarnation as an “Avenger of the Night.” When people say ‘modern Batman,’ they mean Neal Adams’ Batman. His run on Batman led directly to the new, more realistic incarnation in “Batman Returns” movie, which featured the character he created, Ra’s Al Ghul. Neal just did an 8-page story in Batman Black & White #1. Don’t miss out on picking one up at the store and having Neal sign it.
