All the Fun

All the Fun

A few more updates on con activities, including the CBLDF, Tripwire Magazine, creator plans and more. I have more coming as well …

Creators | Artist Ryan Kelly shares his schedule and the cover to All the Fun, his art book he’ll be selling at the show.

Organizations | The Comic Book Legal Defense Fund has updated their website with a lot of info on their activities at the con this year, including some offsite events with Amanda Palmer, an art auction and their “Master Sessions” panels. They’ll also host a welcome party on Thursday night, which is co-sponsored by Comic Book Resources, so be sure to stop by if you get a chance.

Free T-shirts | Capcom will be giving away this reversible zombie T-shirt at their booth this year, if you try out a co-op level of the new Resident Evil game.

Games | The SDCC folks have posted information on their games schedule, which includes Magic:The Gathering, Pokemon and a Tekken tournament.

Magazines | Tripwire Magazine will debut its third Tripwire Annual at the show. Here are the details:

2009cover

A stunning Jeff Carlisle full colour original Nick Fury cover sets the tone for the amazing content inside: We have exclusive interviews with Stan Lee, Joe Kubert, Bill Morrison of Bongo Comics, painter Phil Hale, storyboard artist Trevor Goring and many more. There are features on Tintin, the 70th anniversaries of both Marvel Comics and Batman, the 30th anniversary of Alien, Wednesday Comics from DC, Solomon Kane from Dark Horse and a dozen others. Company profiles include Euro-comics publisher Cinebook, art book impresario Flesk Publications and Book Palace. And of course there are over 20 pages of original strips from Roger Langridge, Kev Mullins, Declan Shalvey, Josh Fialkov & Kody Chamberlain and others. In all, it is by far the biggest and best issue Tripwire has published to date.

Inside Comic-Con’s Exhibitor Hall Tripwire is in the Small Press area at table S07. We’ll have the 2009 Annual available at a special show price. Also, we’ll have the 2008 Annual with the Doctor Who cover ready for David Tennant to sign (wherever he’s set up) and copies of the 2009 Superhero Special with its Kick-Ass cover in case you want to scare up a JR, JR sig. Plus of course we’ll have some Stripwire artists on hand: Roman Muradov and Kody Chamberlain will be at the table sketching and signing their work in the mag. There’s even going to be free swag!

They’ll also have a panel on Thursday at 10:30 a.m. in room 3

Creators | Mark Texeira will have two new books debut at the show … from the press release:

A massive 128 pages, the color art book from Vanguard Productions showcases all this and more, with a study of Texeira’s classical painting techniques applied to his old world portraiture work, as well as showing how his talent is coupled with modern sequential art to great effect.

In fact, “Tex: The Art of Mark Texeira–The Artist’s Great Escape,” is a lush retrospective of Mark’s whole career–from his beginnings in the hard streets of NYC to his rise in the competitive world of commercial illustration. Written by Renee Witterstaetter, with additional research by Patricia Snodgrass, the new book is available in softcover, hardcover and deluxe slipcased hardcover–the later with an additional 16 page portfolio section.

“Tex: The Art of Mark Texeira” will be available at the Vanguard Productions booth. Check with Vanguard for special signing and sketching times with Texeira as well.

In addition, “Babes & Brawn,” a new softcover sketchbook will also be available at SDCC. Measuring 5.5 x 8.5, the new book features 32 pages of art, not duplicated in any other publication, and highlighting sketches produced by Mark on his recent European tour to Brussels, France and The Netherlands. The sketchbook serves as a companion to a hardcover sketchbook due out next year.

“Babes & Brawn–Sketches by Mark Texeira,” will be available at Mark’s table at the SDCC while supplies last.

Creators | And let’s wrap it up with a few more creator posts: Peter David, Jill Thompson and Charles Yoakum.
