PANELS HOSTED BY IMAGE COMICS:
Image Comics: Where Creators Own Creativity, Friday, 3/25/16, 4:30p.m. – 5:30p.m., Room: 403AB
The sky’s the limit with comics, as Joe Harris (SNOWFALL), Keenan Marshall Keller (THE HUMANS), Brian Schirmer (BLACK JACK KETCHUM), Jimmie Robinson (POWER LINES), and Brian Haberlin (FASTER THAN LIGHT) know very well. New creativity has been crucial to the success of comics and drives the most compelling stories out there. In this panel, we’ll discuss the importance of creativity and resonant ideas when creating comics. There’s no story that comics can’t handle, so don’t be afraid to go deep or weird or both.
Top Cow Productions: From Then to Now, Saturday, 3/26/16, 11:30a.m. – 12:30p.m., Room: 515B
Founded by Marc Silvestri in 1992, Top Cow Productions soon made its name as the publisher of hit comics like Witchblade, The Darkness, and Cyberforce. The series stood the test of time, spawning a whole multimedia empire. Sit down with Marc Silvestri, Matt Hawkins (COO of Top Cow Productions), and Bryan Hill (Story Editor) for an exclusive look at where Top Cow has been and where it’s going next.
Image Comics: Where Creators Own Craft, Saturday, 3/26/16, 2:30p.m. – 3:30p.m., Room: 403AB
