Team High Crimes will be attending the 2nd Annual Rose City Comic Con here in our lovely town of Portland, Oregon this weekend (September 21st & 22nd). We’re sharing a table there at good old N-02.
We’ll also be on a couple panels together on both days:
Monkeybrain (Room: Panel 2
Monkeybrain is the new kid on the block in comic publishing. With their focus on digital comics and searching out the newest talent, they’re making waves in the industry that has all the companies watching. Join founders Chris Roberson and Allison Baker, along with some of Monkeybrain’s top talent as they give you the skinny on what they’re all about.
Digital Revolution (Room: Panel 2, 5:00PM)
The newest craze in comics is all about embracing the future. Many creators and companies are looking at the digital marketplace as the test bed for the freshest ideas in the industry. Creators are able to make their own audience by developing it first online. Join the fearless comic creators that are finding a home amongst the internet, and find out how you can too.
Sneaking Into Comics (Room: Panel 2, 1:00PM)
Most creators don’t “break in” to comics in a big, dramatic manner — they “sneak in” gradually, over the course of years. Join a mix of established and up-and-coming writers and artists as they share the “origin stories” of their careers and offer practical advice on how to get (and keep!) a job in comics.
Otherwise we’ll be at the table (N-02). We’ll have buttons, cards, ourselves, other stuff, Ibrahim will be doing sketches. We’ll both have our own individual stuff to sell as well. Ibrahim will have prints (including a couple of killer new prints) for sale, I’ll have wildly reduced copies of my first book, Screamland, and maybe some bundles of Captain Marvel to sell for cheap. And maybe a Carol Corps dogtag or three to give away. We’ll sign whatever you want us to sign, we’ll talk whatever you wanna talk about, let us see your faces on this rare occasion we emerge from our dark offices.
IN ADDITION! I will also be sitting on these panels!
Body In the Gutters (Room: Panel 5
Crime comics are easily the second biggest genre of entertainment in the industry. Many of superheroes’ top creators came from a background of writing dark stories rooted in reality. Join Greg Rucka (Stumptown, Gotham Central), Shawn Aldridge (Vic Boone), Joshua Williamson (Masks and Mobsters), and Chris Sebela (High Crimes) as they take you into what makes a great crime comic.
Dark Horse Superheroes: Project Black Sky(Room: Panel 2, 3:00PM)
2013 saw the return of two of Dark Horse’s classic characters, Ghost and X, a ground up reboot of the Agents of Change, and even a completely reimagined hero from yesteryear, Captain Midnight! Join Dark Horse PR Director, Jeremy Atkins, as well as a cast of the industry’s top talent, including Joshua Williamson (Captain Midnight, Masks and Mobsters), Kelly Sue DeConnick and Chris Sebela (Ghost, Captain Marvel), and Tim Seeley (The Occultist), for a sneak peek at where this line of books is heading into 2014! Look for announcements, first looks, new character debuts and more!
I love you all. Well, maybe not you, but the rest of you, totally.
