I've been invited to be a featured guest at the inaugural Jewish Comicon this Sunday, November 13th at Congregation Kol Israel, located at 603 St. John's Place (between Franklin and Classon) Brooklyn, NY
I illustrated an original pin-up of Marvel Comics' The Thing wearing a yarmulke called "A Jewish Thing," that will be auctioned off at the Preview Party (Saturday night) to help renovate the synagogue that Jewish Comicon takes place at. I'm also doing two panels:
12:30PM – 1:30PM BREAKING INTO COMICS THE CHUTZPAH WAY! It’s the question so many fans are asking all the time. How do you break into the industry? What challenges will you face? And once you get your foot in the door… how do you stay in? Four creators talk about their experience in comics and will give their tips. Moderated by Arie Kaplan (comic book writer and author of From Krakow to Krypton) with guests: Danny Fingeroth (former Marvel editor and writer, author of Disguised as Clark Kent: Jews, Comics and the Creation of the Superhero), Dean Haspiel (The Red Hook) and Fabrice Sapolsky (Intertwined, Spider-Man Noir).
2:30PM – 3:30PM INDIE VOICES: PAST, PRESENT & FUTURE Jewish creators and/or Jewish themes have always been around in independent comics and publications. While Jewish Comic Con honors the founders of the industry, we also want to keep the mic open for the current generation of creators. Between comics journalism, activism and reality-based fiction, our guests deliver fascinating and edgy content you’ll be thrilled to discover! Moderated by Arie Kaplan/Danny Fingeroth with Ariel Schrag (TBC), Dean Haspiel and Josh Neufeld.
