UT – An Evening with Neil Gaiman

gaimanNeil Gaiman appears on Saturday, April 18, 2015 at 7:30 p.m. at the Eccles Center Main Stage!

Press Release:

Bestselling and award-winning author Neil Gaiman comes to the stage with decidedly more than an ability to spin a good yarn. He creates and he inspires. His work extends from fiction and comics to screenplays, song lyrics, poetry, journalism and multimedia works. A self-described “feral child who was raised in libraries,” Gaiman’s bestselling fantasy novel, American Gods, took the Hugo, Nebula, Bram Stoker, and Locus awards—as did his bestselling young adult story, Coraline.

NYC – The Spirit of Innovation Panel

spiritPress Release:

John Cassaday, Michael Cho, Charles Kochman, and Paul Pope, consider the dynamic life, legacy and influence of Will Eisner at Society of Illustrators in New York City on the panel, The Spirit of Innovation: The Enduring Influence of Will Eisner’s The Spirit. Commemorating the 75th anniversary of The Spirit during Will Eisner Week, this panel is a collaboration between the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund and Comic-Con International. The event starts on Wednesday March 7th at 7:00 PM at the Society of Illustrators, located at 128 East 63rd Street at Lexington Ave, in New York City. Admission is $10 for CBLDF, Comic-Con International 2014 attendees (bring your badge), and Society of Illustrators Members, $15 for non-members, and $7 for students and seniors with valid ID.

Will Eisner’s The Spirit
In 1940, Will Eisner wasn’t the only 23-year-old innovating the early comics medium, but he was arguably the most audacious. With war on the horizon, he left the security and success of his work as creative director of the Eisner & Iger packaging studio to create The Spirit, a newspaper comic book supplement that allowed him a wide berth of creative freedom, the ability to speak to an adult audience, and the opportunity to own his own work. 75 years later, The Spirit remains a vital, influential, and engaging work of comics. Join contemporary practitioners for a lively discussion of Will Eisner’s first masterwork and its effect on modern comics.

This panel is a new endeavor that continues the ongoing education collaboration between Comic Book Legal Defense Fund and Comic-Con International, who are co-producing the program. “Events of this sort highlight comics’ vital contribution to culture,” says CBLDF Executive Director Charles Brownstein. “Honoring the medium’s history while encouraging its future are central educational goals for both organizations. It’s an honor to launch this next phase in our partnership with an event that celebrates the vision and contributions of Will Eisner and those he inspired.”

Tickets for this event are available now from the Society of Illustrators online at here…
