    MING DOYLE, JOE QUINONES, and MARIS WICKS appear at The Big Bang on Friday, November 29, 2013 from 6:00pm until 8:00pm for a rare Irish signing!

    RSVP on Facebook!

    MING DOYLE
    Probably better known for her work on Brian Wood’s MARA and the artist in the new story arc of QUANTUM & WOODY, Ming also has done a ton of covers and a short story recently with Kelly Sue DeConnick for the WITCHING HOUR Vertigo anthology. (stil in stock, true believers!)

    JOE QUINONES
    Joe has been around for the last couple of years, starting with TEEN TITANS GO and then GREEN LANTERN with Kurt Busiek and is of late a popular cover artist for DARK HORSE, DC and MARVEL (the last thing you’ll have seen him lately on would be the recent CAPTAIN MARVEL covers). He also has a BLACK CANARY/ZATANNA project coming out with Paul Dini soon, the lucky bastard.

    MARIS WICKS
    Maris is the artist of (the really, really good) PRIMATES, which is currently sold out but due back in stock soon!
    She is also a writer AND a colourist, so we’ll be seeing much more of her in the future.

    PANELS

    11:00AM – 11:50AM

    Comics and Medicine
    Health, illness, and the physical body are major themes in many graphic novels (such as Cancer Vixen, Epileptic, and Stitches). Doctors, patients, and health educators are getting involved with comics as teaching tools and as a method of self-expression and exploring physical and mental conditions.
    Moderator: Cathy Leamy Panelists: Kriota Willberg, LB Lee, Paige Warren.
    12:00PM – 12:50PM
    Comics and Creative Careers
    You have your first paid drawing gig … now what? A panel of working cartoonists discuss the challenges and rewards of drawing for a living in the fields of comics, illustration and animation. Topics will include how to balance creativity and professionalism, what to expect in various fields of employment, and some helpful anecdotes from the artists’ careers.
    Moderator: Zack Giallongo Panelists: Shelli Paroline (artist, Kaboom! Studios), Keith Zulawnik (artist, Fablevision), Renee Kurilla (artist, Fablevision, Simon & Schuster), Ming Doyle (artist, Marvel, IDW)
    1:00PM – 2:15PM
    R. Sikoryak: Classics and Career
    For twenty years, stylistic chameleon R. Sikoryak has been producing literary adaptations in comics form that parody the tics and tropes of classic cartoons; these are collected in Masterpiece Comics (Drawn and Quarterly). He will discuss his work and process, as well as his varied freelance career for Nickelodeon, The New Yorker, The Daily Show, and much more, in a special slideshow presentation.
    2:30PM – 3:20PM
    Iron Cartoonist

    3:30PM – 4:20PM
    Comics and Religion
    Religion intersects comics and comics intersect religion in a multitude of ways. Enter into a discussion with regional comics creators and scholars on the promise and the peril of these engagements. Moderator A. David Lewis asks the panel whether comics is just another medium and religion just another topic — or whether the two are innately bound to each other.
    Moderator: A. David Lewis Panelists: Charles Schneeflock SnowBox BrownDavid Wolkin
    4:30PM – 5:20PM
    Mixing Media
    Artists who use “fine arts” techniques to make comics… artists who use comics techniques to make “fine art” …an art gallery director who hangs comic art on her gallery’s walls… What are the boundaries between fine arts and comics? Are there any? Should there be any? Whatever the answers may be, we’ll look at and discuss some fine comics art and some comical fine art.
    Moderator: Tim Finn Panelists: Doug De Rocher, EJ BarnesAdrienne NunezAnsis PurinsRaul Gonzalez, Cathi Chang
