TeamAvatarBanner

Press Release:

HavenCon is thrilled to welcome actors Dante Basco and Janet Varney! They will be with us both Saturday April 4th and Sunday April 5, 2015 to speak with fans as well as providing autographs.

JANET VARNEY

Janet Varney is a comedian, actor, writer and producer. In the animation world, she is lucky enough to be the voice of Korra on Nickelodeon’s hit series The Legend of Korra. She also spent seven wonderful years hosting TBS’s “Dinner and a Movie,” recurred on HBO’s Entourage, was a series regular on the beloved E! and Yahoo series Burning Love seasons 1 and 3, and has made guest appearances in hit shows including How I Met Your Mother, Key and Peele, Psych, Bones, on the panel of Chelsea Lately, as a regular co-host on HuffPost Live, and has appeared in films such as Still Waiting, Drillbit Taylor, and Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer. Janet is the host of the popular Nerdist podcast The JV Club and the co-founder, creative director and producer of SF Sketchfest, the San Francisco Comedy Festival, now in its 14th year.

DANTE BASCO

With a career spanning over two and a half decades, DANTE BASCO is a Hollywood actor who has become a cult classic and pioneering figure in Asian-American cinema. He was first introduced in Steven Spielberg’s fairytale movie Hook, as “Rufio,” the leader of the Lost Boys. He quickly jumped to leading roles like Newline’s Take the Lead, opposite Antonio Banderas, and The Debut, which became the voice of a Filipino American generation. 20th Century Fox executives were so mesmerized by the uniqueness of Dante’s look and ability that they gave him a development deal for his own series and he starred in a pilot for Touchstone/ABC, The Chang Family Saves the World, written and produced by John Ridley and directed by Paris Barclay. Ever versatile, he’s “Jake Long” in Disney’s animated series American Dragon: Jake Long as well as “Prince Zuko” in Nickelodeon’s phenomenal hit, Avatar: The Last Airbender.

Born and raised in the City by the Bay, Dante started out breakdancing with his three brothers at the age of 8, calling themselves “The Street Freaks”. Quickly they became one of the top groups in San Francisco, opening for acts like Ice-T and Vanity and performing during halftime shows for the 49ers and the Oakland A’s.
Dante and his family moved to Los Angeles in the mid-80s where he started to work immediately. By the age of 16, Dante was fencing against Dustin Hoffman and flying with Robin Williams in Hook. He’s found success on the small screen as well on from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and recurring on Hangin’ with Mr. Cooper and Moesha in the 90s to prominent spots on Nash Bridges, Touched by an Angel, and Providence in the early 2000s and hit shows today like CSI: Miami, Entourage and Hawaii Five-O.

A young man of many talents, Dante is the founder of on e of the largest weekly poetry venue in the country, “Da Poetry Lounge” in Los Angeles and he has also shared his spoken word poetry on Russell Simmons’ HBO Def Poetry Jam. He has also begun writing and producing his own features with his production company Kinetic Films, including Hang Loose, a (hilarious buddy comedy) with YouTube sensation KevJumba, winning the 2012 Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival Special Jury Prizes for “Best Actor” and “Best Newcomer” respectively.

From breakdancing in the streets of San Francisco to starring in movies on the silver screen, Dante Basco has become one of the most recognizable faces in Hollywood and truly an Asian American icon.

His most recent novel, The Ocean at the End of the Lane , was described by The Guardian as “a book that summons both the powerlessness and wonder of childhood, and the complicated landscape of memory and for getting.” It too was a #1 New York Times bestseller, and was voted Book of the Year in the British National Book Awards. Coraline was adapted as a musical by Stephin Merritt in 2009. Other works for younger readers include The Day I Swapped My Dad for Two Goldfish (illustrated by longtime collaborator Dave McKean); The Wolves in the Walls (made into an opera by the Scottish National Theatre); Odd and the Frost Giants (written for 2009’s World Book Day, illustrated by Brett Helquist); and The Dangerous Alphabet (illustrated by Gris Grimly).

Gaiman has appeared as himself on The Simpsons and an episode of Arthur, and has written for the hit television series Babylon 5.

He has also penned screenplays for the original BBC TV series of Neverwhere; Dave McKean’s first feature film, Mirrormask, for the Jim Henson Company; and co-wrote (with Roger Avary) the script to Robert Zemeckis’s Beowulf. Other of Gaiman’s work has been adapted for film, television, and radio, including Stardust (starring Robert DeNiro and Michelle Pfeiffer); Coraline (an Academy Award nominee and the BAFTA winner for Best Animated Film); Sandman (currently in development as a major motion picture); and American Gods (aforthcoming television series).

TX – The Sculptor Signing

scm-sculptorPress Release:

Austin Books is excited to welcome back Scott McCloud, creator of the new First Second graphic novel, The Sculptor. Join us for a special Q&A on Sunday, February 8th from 2:00 to 6:00 pm. This is a not-to-be missed discussion with the man that showed us exactly why we love comics so much in Understanding Comics!

About Scott McCloud:
Scott McCloud has been making comics professionally since 1984. But even more than his series Zot! or his Superman stories, McCloud is best known as the comic industry’s theorist with his books Understanding Comics, Reinventing Comics, and Making Comics. He also created the concept of 24 Hour Comics Day and has talked about the medium around the world.

About The Sculptor:
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 eleventh hour isn’t making it any easier. This is a story of desire taken to the edge of reason and beyond; of the frantic, clumsy dance steps of young love; and a gorgeous portrait of the world’s greatest city. It’s also about the small, warm, human moment of everyday life. Scott McCloud wrote the book on how comics work, now he vaults into great fiction with a breathtaking new work.

TX – The Sculptor Signing

scm-sculptorScott McCloud (Understanding Comics, Zot!) appears at Brazos Bookstore on Saturday February 7, 2015 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!

This is a story of desire taken to the edge of reason and beyond; of the frantic, clumsy dance steps of young love; and a gorgeous, street-level portrait of the world’s greatest city. It’s about the small, warm, human moments of everyday life…and the great surging forces that lie just under the surface. Scott McCloud wrote the book on how comics work; now he vaults into great fiction with a breathtaking, funny, and unforgettable new work.
