Artist Alley Workshops & Panels
THE 'COMIC COVERS' PANEL
Participants: – Michael Cho (Supergirl, Teen Titans, Batwoman, Captain America, Shazam) – Dave Johnson (Invincible, Deadpool, 100 Bullets, Superpatriot) What is it about? Nothing will draw you to a comic more easily than a well-designed, well-executed and visually striking cover. Talk about lucky, as FACTS happens to host 2 of the finest cover artists working in comics today. Let’s talk about their approach to the craft, their history in comics, their heroes & villains.
THE 'Y: THE LAST MAN' PANEL
Participants: – Pia Guerra (Lead penciller of Y – The Last Man. Also: Spider-Man: Unlimited / Torchwood / Superman / The Simpsons’ Treehouse of Horror Comics) What is it about? For its 20th anniversary, FACTS celebrates the emblematic Vertigo series with an in-depth discussion with co-creator Pia Guerra on the title that put her on the map: its origins, evolution and decades-long staying power.
THE 'CARTOONS' PANEL
Participants: – Lectrr (Belgian cartoonist) – Pia Guerra & Ian Boothby (named by The Washington Post as ‘one of the Trump era’s most moving political cartoonists’) – Kyko Duarte (Magiërs, Elfen, Hand van de Duivel, World War Wolves, Chroniques de la Guerre des Fées) What is it about? We have a tendency to overlook them, but cartoons are still a vital cornerstone of the comics medium. Few people can discuss them more intelligently and interestingly than this fine selection of cartoonists/artists. What drove them to this medium, how do they keep a keen eye on their world and what gives them the urge to keep coming back? We’ll find out in this well-staffed panel. And after a quarter century at FACTS, why not let Lectrr on a panel?
THE MIRAGE STUDIO DAYS
Participants: – Steve Lavigne (Hugely important artist for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) What is it about? Get the inside scoop behind the scenes of Mirage Studios, one of the most infamous independent comics studios of the Modern Age. Steve Lavigne will guide us through his time there, with stories & recollections of his long stint for the famed TMNT creators.
