4:15 p.m.–5:15 p.m. ASIAN AMERICAN COMICS AND CULTURE (Room 1A05)

For years, Asian comics creators have been doing incredible work furthering the medium of sequential art.

Join Greg Pak (Kingsway West), Ethan Young (Nanjing: The Burning City), and Vivek Tiwary (The Fifth Beatle: The Brian Epstein Story) for a fascinating conversation on embracing Asian culture in comics, moderated by YouTube personality Shyaporn Theerakulstit.

THOMAS BOATWRIGHT
Long-time Acme ally Thomas Boatwright will be returning to Free Comic Book Day in 2013!

CHRIS GIARRUSSO
A master of his style and craft, Chris first burst onto the comic industry’s radar with Bullpen Bits for the Marvel Comics letters pages, which evolved into the beloved Mini Marvels, running in the back of Marvel event books, specials and all-ages titles for most of this century’s first decade. Have you seen the Hawkeye cartoon intro?

In January 2003, Giarrusso debuted his signature creation, G-Man, in the back of Savage Dragon #104 for Image Comics during a feature called Comic Bits! Since finding their family’s magical heirloom cape in the linen closet, Mikey G and his brother Dave have completed two adventures, “Learning to Fly” and “Cape Crisis”!

Since his last visit to Acme for Free Comic Book Day 2012, Chris has been diligently working on the next installment in the saga of G-Man & Great Man, “Coming Home”, the first chapter of which has been made available via Comixology and to legions of new Chris G. fans for FREE through the Read 2 Succeed program, sponsored by Acme and WFMY News 2!

Joe also has some unannounced interior work on the horizon, as well as a Zatanna/ Black Canary graphic novel, written by Paul Dini, due out at the end of 2013.

AMANDA RACHELS
As the breakout star of the Free Comic Book Day 2012 festivities and a stalwart companion to Jermaine, Stephen and Riley during Comic Con International this past summer, it’s no wonder Amanda Rachels has quickly become a part of the Acme Comics family and Free Comic Book Day wouldn’t be the same without her!

Amanda’s star continues to rise in the comic industry with projects like the self-published Clown Town and her web comic the Blind Eye, written by her frequent collaborator Kevin LaPorte. She just celebrated the release of The Book original graphic novel from Arcana!

ANDY RUNTON
Hey there! My name is Andy. I’ve always loved to draw and always loved comics. After college and a career in corporate America, I finally followed my heart, started drawing comics, graphic novels, and books and I haven’t looked back since.

In 2001 I created the breakout all-ages series of graphic novels, Owly, which features a kind-hearted little owl who’s always searching for new friends and adventure. The Owly series has earned praise from fans and critics alike, winning multiple awards including the Howard E. Day Memorial Prize, the Harvey Award, two Ignatz Awards, and the 2006 Eisner Award for “Best Publication for a Younger Audience.”

I rely on a mixture of symbols, icons, and expressions to tell my silent stories, and my work showcases my love of wildlife and the outdoors. I currently reside in the greater-Atlanta area where I work full-time on my Owly comics, books, and graphic novels.

Andy has made one previous trip to Acme back in 2011, and we’re psyched to have one of the most-travelled creators in comics with us for FCBD!

He continues to work on his creator-owned series Pix, Teenage American Fairy from his home in NYC and he blogs at Hatter Entertainment.com.

BRIAN SMITH
Smitty’s been a part the comic industry since the late ’90s, spending several years as an associate editor at Marvel Comics. After going to work for himself, Brian began illustrating the Adventures of Daniel Boom, a.k.a. Loud Boy for Grosset & Dunlap and penning the adventures of the Voltron Force and Max Steel for Viz Media, as well as debuting his own creations, like the aforementioned Stuff of Legend from Th3rd World Studios, co-created by Mike Raicht and drawn by fan-favorite Charles Paul Wilson III!

Over the last year, Brian has edited various titles at DC Comics, including New 52 runs on Batgirl and Savage Hawkman, but he’s recently gone back to the life he was meant to lead, freelance creation of the adventures of Thomas Fleet and humor strips like the Basics!

Yates debuted his newest project, MonstHer, via Artist Alley in June, alongside new stories from guys like Richard Case, Chris Kemple and Tim Sale.
