TFAW Partners with the CBLDF for Their SDCC 2013 Auction

Press Release:

TFAW Supports CBLDF’s Annual SDCC Auction

Adlard SDCC CBLDFFor the fifth year in a row, Things From Another World (TFAW.com) is proud to partner with the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund for their annual CBLDF Auction at San Diego Comic-Con! With the help of creators including Charlie Adlard (The Walking Dead), Tim Seeley (Revival), and more (see below), the comic book retailer has been able to help raise more than $100,000 to help support the First Amendment rights of the comics community.

As in years past, TFAW is asking professional comic book artists* to create original sketches to donate to the CBLDF auction at San Diego Comic-Con. Artists can choose to sketch their own creator-owned characters, or up to ten artists may sketch DC Comics’ proprietary characters and up to seven artists can create sketches featuring Marvel’s Mighty heroes! (NOTE: Artists wishing to sketch DC and Marvel characters will need to contact TFAW in advance so that they can limit the number of submissions. Also, these pieces are subject to publisher approval.)

In exchange for their original sketches, participating artists will receive 300 free limited-edition autograph cards of their pieces.

New this year: Instead of an original sketch, artists may choose to donate a page of original artwork. Unfortunately, sketch cards are not available for this option, but artists contributing pages will be prominently featured on the TFAW blog.

“Partnering with the CBLDF and the committed creators who generously donate their work is always the highlight of our year,” said TFAW Vice President and CBLDF Board Member Andrew McIntire. “As a retailer, we are both well aware of, and grateful for, the ongoing efforts exercised by the CBLDF in defending everyone’s First Amendment Rights, and we can’t thank our participating artists enough for their contributions to this important work. It is truly gratifying to observe the outpouring of support from the comics community in service of the Fund year after year, and we are honored to be able to be a part of this effort.”

“We continue to be humbled by the outpouring of generosity from the creative community and the abundance of hard work put in by the TFAW.com team to make the CBLDF auction a success,” said CBLDF Executive Director Charles Brownstein. “Thanks to the incredible efforts of the people involved, CBLDF is better equipped to do our work protecting the freedom to read comics. We’re grateful to all who participate.”

In addition to the autograph cards, TFAW and the CBLDF will highlight each artist and their sketch on The Blog From Another World. To coordinate your inclusion in this event, please contact Andrew McIntire at andrewm@tfaw.com by June 17 with the subject line “CBLDF 2013 Auction,” or via phone at 503.905.2395. Print-quality .EPS or .TIFF files for the autograph cards must be received by June 21, and the original sketch can either be sent to the CBLDF’s NYC office by July 1, or delivered to their SDCC booth by July 19.

In addition to Charlie Adlard and Tim Seeley, this year’s participating artists include Jeffrey Brown (Darth Vader and Son), Jonathan Case (Batman ’66), Francesco Francavilla (Black Beetle), Joëlle Jones (Helheim), Larry Marder (Beanworld), and Jill Thompson (Beasts of Burden). See all of this year’s artists at http://www.tfaw.com/sdcc13-auction/artists, and check out all of last year’s sketches (including Francis Manapul’s Batman piece, show here) at http://www.tfaw.com/sdcc12-auction/artists.

ECCC 2013 Con Report!

On March 1-3, 2013, the Washington State Convention Center was home to the 10th annual Emerald City Comic Con! While I’ve attended the show 2 years prior, the show had undergone a massive change, particularly opening up a whole new hallway, adding to the depth of the show, as well as the serious amount of star power in their guests both in media as well as the comic world.

In terms of size alone, ECCC now seems to belong in the upper echelon of top comic conventions, trailing only SDCC, NYCC, and being on par with heavy hitter shows such as C2E2, and WonderCon. Jim Demonakos has put together a consistently solid show, and judging from the positive comments from the artists and writers that I spoke to at the show, ECCC will continue to be a great presence in the comic con circuit.

Heading into the show, I seriously underestimated the intense love of comics the fans up in the northwest have, experiencing long lines from show exclusives such as Sex # 1 and the Walking Dead Governor Special, to artist commission lines for Bruce Timm, Adi Granov, Skottie Young, Charlie Adlard, and Humberto Ramos. Going upstairs to the celebrity room, I was able to witness extremely long lines for stars such as Patrick Stewart, Christopher Lloyd, and Gillian Anderson. Overall, this show was the perfect mix of celebrities and comics one would expect from a comic convention. While SDCC is focused more on the entertainment side of it all, the love of comics was still heavily prevalent at this show, which made me happy to see so many fans line up to meet their favorite creators. I can’t wait to see this show continue to grow and foster the next generation of comic fans!

And now, onto the pictures:

Image Comics creators who aren’t shying away from adult situations talk about creating comics for grown-ups. Is there really such a thing as “gratuitous”?

Panelists: Ryan Ottley, Charlie Adlard, Phil Hester, Josh Williamson SATURDAY 1 PM Hall B

Wondrous Worlds, Fractured Futures: Speculative Fiction and Image Comics

Find out why they choose science fiction, how they build worlds, and what inspires them.

Artist Charlie Adlard began his work in the UK on White Death with Robbie Morrison and many 2000 AD series including Judge Dredd, Armitage, and Savage.

He is well known for his work on The X-Files, Astronauts in Trouble and, of course, The Walking Dead from Image Comics. He is currently the regular penciller on The Walking Dead.

His other work includes Mars Attacks!, The Hellfire Club, and Warlock for Marvel Comics, Batman: Gotham Knights and Green Lantern / Green Arrow for DC Comics and a great many others.

Please note that, due to time constraints, Charlie Adlard will not be sketching at this event – and there may be restrictions on the number of items to be signed.

Dead Cold

Press Release:

Gent, Belgium, Oktober 01, 2012

Zombie-guests galore at F.A.C.T.S. 2012 and now also a Zombie-Comic!

While the Mayan civilization has proclaimed 2012 to be the end of the world, F.A.C.T.S. found it appropriate to invite “zombie-guests” for October 20-21, 2012 and to celebrate the event even more F.A.C.T.S. has developed a ZOMBIE-COMIC with the help of the artists invited to the show!

“I really do not care much about this heralded END OF THE WORLD so inviting Zombies – or rather guests in movie and comics, who have something to do with the zombie-phenomena – is entirely making sense to me, in a ‘living life on the edge’ kinda way”, said Emmanuel van Melkebeke, F.A.C.T.S. Convention Director. “and this year we have something amazing as many artists have supported the idea to publish a Zombie Comic with all profit going to charity!”

Artists included are Sean Philips, Paul Duffield, Dean Yeagle, Colin Wilson, Tyler Kirkham, Lectrr, Romano Molenaar, Louis & Lamirand, XA, Emmanuel Nhieu, Popescu, Kristof Spaey & Sophian Cholet.

The cover will be provided by Guest Of Honor Charlie Adlard, who also provided an introduction as well as picked Greenpeace as beneficiary to the proceedings of this special edition, called “Dead Cold… zombie art”.

F.A.C.T.S Convention is thé signature pop culture event of the Benelux, presenting guests and programming to cater for the top segments of the comics, anime, sci-fi, film, TV, and gaming industries.

Entering its 22th edition, F.A.C.T.S. is expected to draw over 21,000+ attendees to its October 21-22, 2012 convention held at the Gent Flanders Expo Convention Center located in Gent, Belgium.

The show will sport 3,000 extra meters compared to its last edition and will now have 15,000 square meters. FACTS will host over a mile of dealers of toys, comics, movie merchandise, fantasy merchandise, manga and will see 2,500+ cosplayers and a cosplay competition, life size props, model kit exhibitions, an entire fan-village, a Japanese Village, a huge game zone with dozens of consoles, as well as loads of surprises, to brighten up the already amazing venue!
