TX – Marvel Hits SXSW

Press Release:

This Spring, Marvel Entertainment takes Austin, Texas by storm in its inaugural appearance at the South By Southwest Interactive Festival with the Marvel: Digital House of Ideas panel at SXSW ScreenBurn! In this historic event on Sunday, March 11 at 1pm on the IGN stage at the Palmer Events Center, Axel Alonso (Marvel Comics Editor in Chief), Jeph Loeb (Head of Marvel Television) and Peter Phillips (SVP & GM, Marvel Digital Media Group) unveil Marvel’s bold new multimedia plans that includes the premiere of Marvel’s revolutionary new ways to read comics. Not only does this mark the first major appearance by a comic book publisher in SXSW history, but Marvel is coming armed with the big news—and exclusive animation footage—that can’t be missed by any fan in attendance! Best of all, this event is free and open to the public, so everyone can be on hand to see Marvel’s newest innovations.

“Marvel’s always been the industry leader in graphic fiction & digital media and with the announcements we’ve planned, we couldn’t have picked a more appropriate show than SXSW,” said Dan Buckley. Publisher & President of the Print, Animation & Digital Divisions, Marvel Worldwide, Inc. “We’re big believers that both print and digital can work hand-in-hand to bring more readers to comics than ever before—and if you’re at SXSW Interactive you’ll be the first to see just how we’re going to do that.”

Since the launch of Marvel Digital Comics Unlimited in 2007, the first major digital comics program in comics history, Marvel has been on the forefront of digital comics publishing with innovations such as the landmark Marvel Comics app in 2010. Since then, Marvel has expanded its digital comics offerings to numerous platforms, while also becoming the first comics company to offer free digital copies with select print issues and comic shop coupons with the purchase of a digital comic.

“We are very excited to have Marvel on board for the ScreenBurn portion of the 2012 SXSW Interactive Festival,”  said Hugh Forrest, Director of SXSW Interactive. “The presence of this industry leader is another indicator of the growth and maturation of the event. Marvel’s addition to the SXSW lineup will add even more flavor to the mix of creative energy that fills Austin in March.”

After the Marvel: Digital House of Ideas panel concludes, fans in attendance will receive a limited edition lithograph (while supplies last) and a chance to have it signed by Alonso and Loeb in a special Marvel signing session.

“Marvel’s fans are the best in the world—bar none—and I’m excited to meet more of them at SXSW” said Alonso. “We have exciting new plans that you’ll see implemented with the release of Avengers vs X-Men #1 that’ll take the biggest comics event in history and make it even bigger!”

Stay tuned to www.marvel.com and www.sxswscreenburn.com for more details on the Marvel: Digital House of Ideas panel and Marvel’s plans for SXSW.

Amazing Arizona Comic Con 2011 Photo Report

From January 8th-9th, Arizona was home to the first comic con of 2011! Brothers Jimmy and Bill Jay threw an awesome comic convention with a host of excited fans. With huge artists and writers from the comics industry, including Robert Kirkman, Jeph Loeb, Rob Liefeld, Todd McFarlane, Ryan Ottley, in addition to Jon Bernthal and Steven Yeun from the hit TV series The Walking Dead, Amazing Arizona Comic Con was a great way to start off the 2011 con season. Not only was the fan enthusiasm infectious, but the professionals also seemed to enjoy being there, greeting all the guests and signing books. Artist Alley was perpetually packed during the show, and the lines for the bigger guests never seemed to shrink. If you couldn’t make it this year, and you want to see a comic con done right, make sure you come next year! Here are some pictures from the inaugural Amazing Arizona Comic Con (Special thanks to http://twitter.com/#!/gelatometti for additional photos, who reminds you to always charge your phone and cameras at shows!):
