Comments Off on NYC – Justice League: War Panel
Christopher Gorham, “Flash”
James Tucker, Producer
Jay Oliva, Director
Andrea Romano, Dialogue Director
Additional panelists to be announced.
When the powerful Darkseid and his massive, relentless forces invade Earth, several previously unaligned superheroes—misunderstood and, in some cases, hunted by the authorities—discover that the only way to fend off the attack will be to work together as a cohesive unit. Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Flash, Shazam, and, in his origin story, Cyborg combine their talents in an all-out battle to save the planet. Based on the 2012 graphic novel Justice League: Origin by Geoff Johns and Jim Lee, Justice League: War provides a glimpse into the world before the Justice League was created, and offers the initial animated incarnation of DC Entertainment’s “The New 52.”
The cast features Jason O’Mara (Terra Nova, Life on Mars) as Batman, Christopher Gorham (Covert Affairs) as Flash, Justin Kirk (Weeds) as Green Lantern, Shemar Moore (Criminal Minds) as Cyborg, Michelle Monaghan (Mission Impossible III, Gone Baby Gone) as Wonder Woman, Alan Tudyk (Suburgatory, Dollhouse, Serenity) as Superman, Sean Astin (The Lord of the Rings Trilogy) as Shazam, and Rocky Carroll (NCIS) as Silas Stone. On the villainous side, Steve Blum (Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox) provides the voice of Darkseid, and Bruce Thomas (Legally Blonde, Army of Darkness) gives voice to Desaad.

Comments Off on NYC – Dare2Draw w/ Phil Jimenez
Artist Phil Jimenez appears at Society of Illustrators on Thursday, August 15, 2013 from 6:00pm until 9:30pm!
About Phil Jimenez:
At an early age, Phil Jimenez learned of the world of comics through his love of Star Wars, leading him into Marvel Comics series based on the film. In addition, he was a big fan of the Super Friends and Wonder Woman TV show (soon to become a big fan of her comic version, thanks to George Perez’s post-crisis re-launch).
Attending Manhattan’s School of Visual Arts, Phil developed the skills he needed to become a comic book artist, being picked by Neal Pozner to draw a two-part Cyborg story in Showcase Œ93. A few of Phil’s more well known works are Fairest, Team Titans, Tempest, Guy Gardner: Warrior, Robin, Invisibles, New X-Men, and is very well known for his work on Wonder Woman, JLA/Titans: Technis Imperative, and his many pin-ups (notably: numerous Secret Files and Origins) and group splashes including the Justice League, Legion of Super-Heroes, and DC One-Million. Jimenez is currently at work on a creator-owned DC title for their Vertigo line called “Otherworld.”
Phil would also act as the stand-in for Tobey Maguire during the costume-designing scene in the 2002 Spider-Man feature film. But, in addition to his excellent talent for visual art, Phil is an accomplished writer as well thanks in large part to the man who not only hired him, but also taught him to write, draw, and love passionately, Neal Pozner. Unfortunately, Neal passed away in 1994 after contracting the HIV virus.

Comments Off on PA – An Evening with Jim Shooter
Comic book legend and Pittsburgh native Jim Shooter returns for a rare appearance at the ToonSeum!
The ToonSeum is proud to host “An Evening with Jim Shooter” from 6:00-9:30 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 19, 2013. The event with the outspoken and sometimes controversial writer and editor will begin with a 6 p.m. VIP reception at the ToonSeum, followed by an on-stage interview at 7:30 and a Q&A session conducted by Wayne Wise, the ToonSeum’s resident comics historian.
In 1965, at age 13, Shooter began writing “Superboy,” “The Legion of Super-Heroes,” “Superman” and other DC Comics. He holds the record as youngest-ever professional comics writer.
In 1976, he became editor of Marvel’s color comics and plotter/layout artist on the “Amazing Spider-Man” syndicated strip. In 1978, he accepted the position of editor in chief under the condition that he would be allowed to improve things for Marvel’s creators. He introduced royalties – as well as a spectrum of other incentives, such as rights and benefits – and attracted a who’s who of talent. As a result, sales boomed.
Later, Shooter founded VALIANT, DEFIANT and Broadway Comics. He served as editor in chief at each of these and was the principal creator of their characters and universes. He currently is the editor in chief of Illustrated Media, a custom comics company.
Tickets for “An Evening with Jim Shooter” are available at jimshooter.eventbrite.com. The cost is $25 for nonmembers and $20 for ToonSeum members. VIP tickets – which include a reception meet-and-greet, signed comic and admission to “An Evening with Jim Shooter” – are $50 for nonmembers and $40 for ToonSeum members.
