Press Release:

The Portland Comic Book show will feature an inking demonstration by Gary Martin, author of The Art of Comic-Book Inking. Gary Martin’s two volumes of The Art of Comic-Book Inking have become the industry-standard manuals for aspiring inkers seeking to take their work to the next level or for working professionals looking to broaden their skills base. Dark Horse Comics recently published a new edition of the ground breaking book, combining the two textbooks into a single volume and with expanded new material, including three additional blue-lined art boards featuring pencil art by master comics illustrators Jack Kirby, John Buscema, and Gil Kane.

Anina Bennett, co-creator of Heartbreakers and Boilerplate, will moderate a panel discussion “How to Break Into Comics as a Writer” Writers on the panel discussion include Kurt Busiek (Astro City), Dan Berman (God Complex), Adam Gallardo (Gear School), Brandon Jerwa (Battlestar Galactica) and Jamie S. Rich (Spellcheckers).

Featuring movie accurate costumes, Cloud City Garrison “the Villians” will feature Stormtroopers & Darth Vader. Kashyyyk Base features “the Rebels” including Jedi Knights, Pilots, Princesses, and Wookies. Mandalorian Mercs are “the bounty hunters” from Star Wars.

 CC4CC Comic Creators for Captain Cure

We know who Captain Cure is.

Captain Cure is Ty Wakefield: a proud resident of Lewiston, Idaho, father of three, husband to one, and a friend to all.  In 2007 Ty was diagnosed with osteo-sarcoma (bone cancer).  While dealing with chemotherapy and bone replacement surgeries, Captain Cure was born!  Ty formed Alternate Reality Comics and began producing and distributing Captain Cure comics throughout the Pacific Northwest with all of the proceeds going to children dealing with similar afflictions.  The comic served an additional purpose in that it made the stigma of cancer an easy to understand concept for younger readers.

Ty’s road has been a tough one over the last couple of years.  He continues to promote his comics and raise money for charity in between extensive chemical and radiation treatments.  While the prognosis is not positive he continues to keep a smile for everyone.  While his charitable efforts have been helping others, his family now has sizeable expenses associated with his treatments which could be a heavy burden on his family.  We at Comic Evolution and CC4CC want to help reduce the burden to the family and ensure an enduring legacy for Ty and his family. 

On August 15th we will be hosting an entourage of comic industry leaders for a night to be remembered.  Starting at Noon we will have a book signing/Q&A with the artists in attendance.  To add to that we will have live music, a huge raffle, and art exclusive to the show on display for sale.   The real treat begins at 6pm, when we will have a price per head “Night with the Stars” at a yet to be determined location., where fans of the industry can just hang out with their avorite artists and writers. 

If you would like to participate in the event, either by attending or donating, please contact us at the number below.  Any and all contributions will go towards the Wakefield family in the form of a trust.  This way we can continue to assist the family with future events. 

*IF YOU ARE AN ARTIST OR WRITER AND WOULD LIKE TO BE ADDED TO THE LIST IN ATTENDANCE AUGUST 15TH, PLEASE GIVE CHUCK A CALL AT 253-770-6464*
