Press Release:

The Portland Comic Book show will feature an inking demonstration by Gary Martin, author of The Art of Comic-Book Inking. Gary Martin’s two volumes of The Art of Comic-Book Inking have become the industry-standard manuals for aspiring inkers seeking to take their work to the next level or for working professionals looking to broaden their skills base. Dark Horse Comics recently published a new edition of the ground breaking book, combining the two textbooks into a single volume and with expanded new material, including three additional blue-lined art boards featuring pencil art by master comics illustrators Jack Kirby, John Buscema, and Gil Kane.

Anina Bennett, co-creator of Heartbreakers and Boilerplate, will moderate a panel discussion “How to Break Into Comics as a Writer” Writers on the panel discussion include Kurt Busiek (Astro City), Dan Berman (God Complex), Adam Gallardo (Gear School), Brandon Jerwa (Battlestar Galactica) and Jamie S. Rich (Spellcheckers).

Star Wars Imperial Costume Clubs will be out in full force at the Portland Comic Book Show on November 13th. Featuring movie accurate costumes, Cloud City Garrison “the Villians” will feature Stormtroopers & Darth Vader. Kashyyyk Base features “the Rebels” including Jedi Knights, Pilots, Princesses, and Wookies. Mandalorian Mercs are “the bounty hunters” from Star Wars. Star Wars fans should bring their cameras as all 3 Costuming clubs will be available for pictures!

The Portland Comic Book Show is featuring over 30 comic book writers and artists at this years’ annual show. A complete list can be found at www.portlandcomicbookshow.com
