But there’s another fun way to support him… if you buy this bundle of videogames and movies, some of the money will go to help him (you can actually set how much money goes to him & the other charity and how much goes to the game developers, film makers, etc). And if you pledge at the $10 level or above then one of the movies is MARS… the awesome animated feature film in which I make my (rotoscoped) acting debut!
"What I love about Becky Cloonan’s work is the inspiring expressiveness of her lines. They flit between playful animation and chiseled determination creating a thoroughly modern style which bridges the real with the imagined."
- Jim Lee
It was his work on X-Men that made me start drawing comics, so I am beyond psyched that he took time out of his busy schedule to give me a quote for By Chance or Providence. Big thank you to the legendary Jim Lee who has been such a strong supporter of my self-published books!
An insidious sort of censorship is taking place in Japan: Someone has vandalized hundreds of copies of Anne Frank’s Diary of a Young Girl at public libraries throughout Tokyo. More at CBLDF.org…
Just wanted to take a moment to post our policy on harassment on tumblr, it is also on our website, and will be in the program guide. The image attached is the sign we will have displayed throughout the convention.
Emerald City Comicon’s mission is to create a safe, awesome environment where geeks of all kinds can come together. We have a zero tolerance policy for harassment of any kind.
Harassment includes offensive verbal comments (related to race, gender, sexual orientation, body size, disability, appearance, and religion), overly sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact and unwelcome sexual attention.
Exhibitors, sponsors and guests are subject to our anti-harassment policy as well and have also been informed. In particular, exhibitors should not use images or material that surpasses a PG-13 rating at their booths. Booth staff (including volunteers) should not use over-sexualized clothing/uniforms/costumes.
If a person engages in harassing behavior, ECCC Directors and Department Heads may take any action they deem appropriate, up to and including expulsion from Emerald City Comicon (with no refund). If you are being harassed, witness someone else being harassed or have any other concerns, please contact a member of the Emerald City Comicon staff immediately (identifiable by green Minion t-shirts or black polos/Staff badges). We are happy to contact our security or local law enforcement, provide escort, a safe place, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the convention.
All attendees, exhibitors and staff are subject to this anti-harassment policy and are expected to follow these rules at all Emerald City Comicon events.
This convention does so many things right. Here’s just another example.
Good to see proactive measures such as this.
I finished the script for The Nameless City book 1 last week, so this week is ALL DESIGN I’LL NAIL DOWN THESE EFFING DESIGNS OR DIE TRYING.
It’s been a frustrating process. But I think I like these. Erzi (older guy) got a cute braid to go with his permanent grumpyface.
1989 - Anatomy of a Cover - Marvel Comics Presents #21
by Walt Simonson
Edison Rex 14 is out and available for download on Comixology!
Not only is the cover an homage to Love and Rockets but the whole dang comic is too! This issue contains several smaller stories exploring the relationships of some of Edison Rex’s supporting characters and interlock to tell a larger story that plays into everything we’ve seen in nearly every issue of Rex so far. It’s also the first appearance of 2014’s character of the year, HUMAN GARBAGE. All for less than a buck, Rexphiles.
I’m really proud of this one!
In case you were unaware.
