Press Release:

The quick-draw game that pairs professional comic book artists with stand-up comedians will crown a champion team from a talented field of four teams at the EMERALD CITY COMIC CON on April 9th at 2:00 PM. The top half of the bracket features artist SCOTT KOBLISH (Deadpool) and comedian DYLAN COLE vs. artist JEFF JOHNSON (Bornhome, Wonder Man) and comedian SILAS LINDENSTEIN. The bottom half will see artist CHRIS BURNHAM (Nameless, Batman, Incorporated) and comedian SALLY JORDAN squaring off against artist NICK PITARRA (The Manhattan Projects) and comedian EMMETT MONTGOMERY.

The Burnham-Pitarra matchup will not be the first time the two have faced each other in Sketch Fighter as Burnham edged Pitarra out in the finals of the 2014 C2E2 convention. Scott Koblish earned the top seed by virtue of a tournament victory in February, thus forcing the first-round rematch between Burnham and Pitarra.

All art created during the game, as well as one drawing done by each artists prior to the event will be auctioned off at the conclusion of the game, with the proceeds going to the HERO INITIATIVE.

The game will be streamed live at the link…

CA – Sketch Fighter 2015

Guest artists ANDREW ROBINSON (The Fifth Beatle), LIVIO RAMONDELLI (Transformers), RAFAEL NAVARRO, SCOTT LOBDELL, and RALPH MIRANDA appear at The Comic Bug on Saturday, January 24, 2015 at 7:00 PM. All of the artists will create a drawing prior to the game and these drawings along with all art made during the game will be auctioned off and given to the HERO INITIATIVE.

These artists may be the best in their field when it comes to 30-day deadlines, but how will they do at sketching in 60 seconds or less? Likewise, their comedian tag-team partners may be quick on their feet on stage, but when their mic is traded for a marker, will they bomb? Only one team will emerge victorious and crowned Sketch Fighter Champions.

Following the game and the auction, the Comics and Comics stand-up show will take place, featuring the best all fanboy stand-up comedy in the Multiverse from JOE STARR, RON SWALLOW, ED GREER, TIM POWERS, SCOTT LOBDELL, and TOM FRANCK.
