Thomas Jane gets RAW at Dallas Comic Con, this May 21-22
For the past two years actor Thomas Jane has turned in an amazing performance on the hit HBO series HUNG, in which he stars as an average guy doing whatever he can to get a leg up… or, uh, something like that. Tom’s acting has been so appreciated, he’s received two back-to-back Golden Globe nominations, and a third season is on the way. Regardless of whether you’ve seen the show, chances are you’ll recognize Jane from one of his many memorable roles through the years, including his breakout scenes in BOOGIE NIGHTS, the Renny Harlin shark thriller DEEP BLUE SEA, his terrific interpretation of Mickey Mantle in 61*, Cameron Diaz’s love interest in the sexy comedy THE SWEETEST THING, the daring and difficult true story of STANDER, his comic book adaptation of “Frank Castle” in THE PUNISHER, the controversial leading man in Frank Darabont’s adaptation of Stephen King’s THE MIST, and so much more. You many have also chuckled during his memorable cameo in SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD… I know I did.
In 2005, Tom made his first appearance at the Dallas Comic Con, where he debuted the very first concept art for his comic book project BAD PLANET in the show program book. Since then he’s released multiple comic projects through his RAW Studios imprint, a company he’s formed with business partner and accomplished creator Tim Bradstreet. Series like BAD PLANET and ALIEN PIG FARM 3000 (written by DRIVE ANGRY 3D screenwriter Todd Farmer) have wowed fans and critics with fun throwback-style stories and artwork by some of the best artists in the business. Jane is currently working with acclaimed writer Bruce Jones to revive the ALIEN WORLDS and TWISTED TALES comic books, and has already written, directed and starred in his own movie, DARK COUNTRY. But you don’t have to just read about the actor’s exploits, you could actually meet him and his creative partners in person at the upcoming Dallas Comic Con this May 21-22. Thomas Jane, Tim Bradstreet, Todd Farmer and Bruce Jones will all be in attendance, along with RAW collaborators Steve Niles and Bernie Wrightson. The RAW booth rarely makes a full appearance at any show outside of San Diego Comic-Con and the Long Beach Comic Con, but they’ll be out in full force at the popular Texas-based event, signing autographs and meeting fans. Tom is currently scheduled to do a scheduled signing on both Saturday and Sunday during the show, and will be making frequent appearances at the booth.
This is a rare opportunity to meet one of the coolest creative teams in the industry, and if you haven’t seen the guest list for the show, you’ll realize this is just the icing on an already delicious cake. You can find out more information on the Dallas Comic Con (held May 21-22) at http://dallascomiccon.com – or on their Facebook page at http://facebook.com/dallas.comiccon.

Janson & Chaykin Offer Art Seminar
With over seventy five years of cumulative experience in the comic book industry, Klaus Janson and Howard Chaykin are all-too-well-versed in the ins and outs of making a career in our inkstained – and now, with all that digital stuff, carpal tunneled – business. For the past few years, Klaus and Howard have been conducting an Artist’s Workshop for Marvel, offering invaluable insights, gleaned from those decades of experience, on narrative, storytelling, page design, and career management.
They’ve developed a fluid and comprehensive take on the inside game played by successful cartoonists – and a series of direct and vital techniques intended to drag newer talents out of a hobby and into a profession – without ever losing the joy all of us experience when we ply our craft.
Klaus and Howard have taken their seminar on the road to the renowned Savannah College of Art & Design, to great acclaim from students and faculty alike, and now they’re bringing a customized version of the workshop to the 2010 Baltimore Comic-Con. On Saturday, August 28th, from 1pm to 4pm, Messrs. Janson and Chaykin will entertain and enlighten with a lively, spirited, and very likely prickly and opinionated dissertation, followed, from 4 PM to 5 PM, by an hour of honest dissection of the work of several lucky attendees. All class registrants will be eligible for the dissection lottery, so bring some of your work if you want to hear from these two very honest men!
To register for this very special class, please call our host store, Cards, Comics, & Collectibles @ 410-526-7410. The cost for this professional seminar is $75. Major credit cards will be accepted for payment. The hour of honest dissection from 4pm-5pm will be exciting programming available to all ticketed attendees of the Baltimore Comic-Con. Register now while space is still available!
Mark Chiarello, Art Director at DC Comics, will be doing portfolio reviews from 11am to 1pm at the Mark’s booth on both Saturday and Sunday. Think you’ve got the chops to make it as a pro at DC Comics? Come and find out first-hand!
