PANELS HOSTED BY IMAGE COMICS:
Image Comics: Where Creators Own Creativity, Friday, 3/25/16, 4:30p.m. – 5:30p.m., Room: 403AB
The sky’s the limit with comics, as Joe Harris (SNOWFALL), Keenan Marshall Keller (THE HUMANS), Brian Schirmer (BLACK JACK KETCHUM), Jimmie Robinson (POWER LINES), and Brian Haberlin (FASTER THAN LIGHT) know very well. New creativity has been crucial to the success of comics and drives the most compelling stories out there. In this panel, we’ll discuss the importance of creativity and resonant ideas when creating comics. There’s no story that comics can’t handle, so don’t be afraid to go deep or weird or both.
Top Cow Productions: From Then to Now, Saturday, 3/26/16, 11:30a.m. – 12:30p.m., Room: 515B
Founded by Marc Silvestri in 1992, Top Cow Productions soon made its name as the publisher of hit comics like Witchblade, The Darkness, and Cyberforce. The series stood the test of time, spawning a whole multimedia empire. Sit down with Marc Silvestri, Matt Hawkins (COO of Top Cow Productions), and Bryan Hill (Story Editor) for an exclusive look at where Top Cow has been and where it’s going next.
Image Comics: Where Creators Own Craft, Saturday, 3/26/16, 2:30p.m. – 3:30p.m., Room: 403AB
Ed Brubaker (THE FADE OUT), Kurtis Wiebe (RAT QUEENS), Tom Neely (THE HUMANS), Greg Hinkle (AIRBOY), and Malachi Ward (ISLAND) all bring one important thing to their work: a very, very high level of craft. Craft is what makes comics go—it makes for beautiful art, clever writing, and amazing storytelling. Craft is a product of talent, hard work, and experience—if you want to know what it takes, come listen to the best.

Utopia is here. Hunger, sickness, work…all relics of a long forgotten past. For the greater good of the human species, all individuality, creativity, and negative emotions have been genetically bred out and medically suppressed. The population is limited to segregated areas where people lead long lives of leisure, games, and socializing. Only one man and one woman seem to notice, care, or think differently. Once they find each other, their relationship sparks a revolution…but will their love cause the salvation or destruction of mankind?
