Dark Heron Official Beer of Emerald City Comicon 2017

000 eccc17 beerPress Release:

Fremont Brewing and Emerald City Comicon have teamed up again to bring you the Dark Heron – an exclusive IPA specifically created as the Official Beer of Emerald City Comicon 2017, featuring a female superhero lead – Dark Heron.

This year’s Dark Heron defends the taste buds of her city against the Bland Beer League with a secret weapon of an explosive, international combo of American Experimental Hop HBC 438®, German Super-Hop Huell Melon and the Wonder Down Under Nelson Sauvin hops from New Zealand. Combining their fruity, tropical, and spicy aromas and flavor with the Legendary Northwest malts and a zap! of Oats, Dark Heron transforms water into a bold, expressive IPA and saves you from another corporate-mandated Bland Beer.

The beer will be available for tasting at a debut party sponsored by Emerald City Comicon and Fremont Brewing on Thursday, February 2 at the Fremont Brewing Urban Beer Garden – 1050 N 34th St in Seattle.

In celebration of the Pacific Northwest’s largest and most heroic pop culture festival (as well as Seattle’s official bird and Fremont Brewing’s logo), cartoonist Jennifer Vaughn (Nicki Minaj: The Empire, Plants Vs Zombies: Heroes) adapted Fremont Brewing’s heron logo and crafted the bold spirit of Dark Heron to embody the modern heroine.

Dark Heron will be available on tap at ECCC 2017, in bars and restaurants throughout Seattle and in 22 oz. bottles in regional grocery stores starting Friday, February 3, 2017.

Years ago Dino Stamatopoulos wrote a musical comedy (or more appropriately a Light Tragedy with Music) about a small family surviving through a cold winter. Think Sam Shepard meets Moral Orel. Although this play was only performed once, in Chicago, it’s being brought back in the form of a musical graphic novel. However, for San Francisco Sketchfest, for the first time since the original staging, Dino and guests will perform scenes and music from TRENT: a light tragedy with music.

Great Philadelphia Comic Con Announces 2017 Guests

000-gpcc2017

Press Release:

Come and ‘Get UR Geek On!’ at the largest independently run Pop Culture Convention in PA! With over 150,000 Sq ft of show, there is something for everyone! Dozens of Artists, Vendors, Media and Cosplay Guests and Events, including: Panels Gaming Contests Door Prizes Film + TV Screening Events And Much More! Guests include:

Marina Sirtis
Born to Greek parents who did not want her to become an actress. As soon as Marina completed high school, she applied to the Guild Hall School of Music and Drama secretly. After her graduation, she worked in musical theater, repertory and television. In 1986, she moved to Los Angeles, California. For six months, she auditioned for parts but was unsuccessful. Just before she planned to go back home, she got the part of Counselor Deanna Troi in “Star Trek: The Next Generation”.

Bruce Boxleitner
As one of Hollywood’s leading men, Bruce Boxleitner has starred in a major motion picture franchise, numerous feature films, several popular television series, produced a major network film and TV series, performed on Broadway, and authored two science fiction novels.

John Wesley Shipp
John played Barry Allen aka The Flash in the CBS sci-fi adventure series “The Flash” (1990-1991), he then went on to play on the WB’s hit drama “Dawson’s Creek,” as Dawson’s dreamer dad Mitch Leery. Most recently he has returned to sci-fi by playing Henry Allen, the father of Barry Allen on the hit CW show “The Flash”.

Mike Zeck
Mike’s comics series and covers have influenced generations of artists, and one would have to argue which of Mike’s series has been the most influential, or most deeply embossed in our pop culture.

Zeck’s groundbreaking six part story “Kraven’s Last Hunt,” with J.M. Dematteis and Bob McLeod is the definitive Kraven the Hunter story and took the Spider-Man character to a whole new level, and has been touted by readers as the “Greatest Spider-Man story of all time,” in recent polls.

His work with writer Steven Grant on the Punisher Limited Series–collected as “Circle of Blood”—set the standard for the look and feel of the character and propelled the Punisher to flagship character status at Marvel. Along with air-brush artist Phil Zimelman, Mike has created some of the most recognizable painted images of the Punisher.

The 12-issue Series “Secret Wars,” was a monumental success, and Zeck’s design for Spider-Man’s black costume is still recognizable and indelible to this day. Spider-Man wore the costume temporarily, and it still lives on in the form of the super-villain, Venom.

Zeck’s work has also graced the pages and covers of “Captain America,” “Master of Kung Fu,” “Aquaman,” “Batman,” “Legends of the DC Universe,” “Green Lantern,” “G.I. Joe,” “G.I. Joe: Special Missions,” “Lobo,” “Deathstroke The Terminator,” “The Eliminator,” “Damned” and many other titles

Jim Shooter
A United States writer, occasional fill-in artist, editor, and publisher for various comic books. Shooter began selling stories to DC Comics for their Legion of Super-Heroes title when he was only 13. He eventually succeeded Archie Goodwin to become the controversial ninth editor-in-chief of Marvel Comics from 1978 to 1987.

After leaving Marvel, he fronted an effort to purchase the floundering publisher from its corporate ownership, losing out at the last minute to Ronald Perelman’s slightly higher bid. He then founded a new company, Voyager Communications, which published comics under the Valiant Comics banner.

Jim will be appearing Friday and Saturday Only!

Michael Golden
Michael Golden is an American comic book artist and writer best known for his late-1970s work on Marvel Comics’ The Micronauts, as well as his co-creation of the characters Rogue and Bucky O’Hare. His work is known to have influenced the style of artist Arthur Adams.

Ty Templeton
Ty has worked on titles for Marvel Comics, DC Comics, Bongo Comics, and Moonstone Books, including Batman Adventures, The Simpsons and many others. He also created his own graphic novel, Bigg Time, published by DC Comics’ mature readers imprint, Vertigo.

He was recently editor of an independent Canadian comic company, Mr. Comics. Recent work includes writing and drawing stories for DC’s Batman 66, based on the 1960s television series. He teaches classes in comic book writing and drawing, known as “Ty Templeton’s Comic Book Boot Camp”.

Graham Nolan
Okay, here’s the truth in a nutshell… he grew up between Long Beach, NY and Indian Harbour Beach, FL. Went 2 years to the Joe Kubert School of Cartoon and Graphic Art, couldn’t afford to graduate. Started working in advertising waiting for big break in comics.

Break came at DC Comics when one of his teachers, Sal Amendola, who was the talent coordinator there, bought two of his school assignments to run in “New Talent Showcase.”

Started picking up more assignments from DC, Marvel and Eclipse Comics eventually leading to a 6 year run illustrating Batman in “Detective Comics” and co-creating the villain, Bane. In 1998 he wrote, illustrated and self-published, “Monster Island.”

Bob Camp
Bob started his animation career as a designer for animated series such as ThunderCats, Silverhawks, TigerSharks, and several other series produced by Rankin/Bass. He then worked as a designer on The Real Ghostbusters for DiC, and later as a storyboard artist on Tiny Toon Adventures for Warner Bros. Television. He was a co-founder of and director for Spümcø, the animation studio that created The Ren & Stimpy Show.

JK Woodward
J.K. Woodward started his professional comics career in 2003 when he collaborated with A. David Lewis on the indie comic Mortal Coils. When Peter David was re-launching his creator owned series Fallen Angel at IDW, James was a natural choice for Peter’s dark world of magic, violence and redemption. His last sequential art project was the Star Trek/Doctor Who crossover, Assimilation 2 and he is currently handling the art for Harlan Ellison’s City on the Edge of Forever.

Wil Traval
Wil can currently be seen as ‘Will Simpson’ on the Netflix original series Marvel’s “Jessica Jones” and will play DC character ‘Human Target’ in the upcoming season of CW’s “Arrow” Wil is a dynamic actor who has had a successful career both in the US and in his native Australia. He has guest starred in several other series including ABC’s hit “Once Upon A Time” as Sheriff of Nottingham.

Bryce Papenbrook
