Dark Horse Panel: Powered by Creators, Room 23ABC
An In-Depth Look at the Best in Creator-Owned Comics— Just over 25 years ago, Dark Horse arrived with a different agenda than any other publisher in comics. The young company was founded on the belief that comics creators should have the option to retain the rights to their own work, and today it continues to be a highly fertile breeding ground for new characters and concepts. Self-publishing sensation Sam Humphries introduces Dark Horse publisher Mike Richardson, along with a cast of top talent from around the industry. Expect exclusive announcements, and much, much more!
FF: A BIG ANNOUNCEMENT coming out from this panel, so make sure to be there :)

3-4 pm 
SIGNING at Dark Horse Booth #2615 Creator-Owned Signing with Eric Powell (The Goon), Francesco Francavilla (The Black Beetle), Matt Kindt (MIND MGMT), Tony Puryear and Erika Alexander (Concrete Park), and Sanford Greene (Rotten Apple)

Trickster Symposium

NEW LOCATION!!! Wine Steals/Proper, 795 J Street

Get tickets and information for all Trickster Symposia and events at

Afternoons at TR!CKSTER will feature THE ARTISTS’ WORKSHOPS, a series of informal demonstrations by a gathering of today’s top visual storytellers. Designed to allow for up-close-and-personal demonstrations of technique and method, these workshops will feature artists creating original works on-site and in the moment, from watercolor and acrylic to pencil and ink. Work might include actual comics pages being produced, thumbnails, or original paintings that might be used for production. Some work will be available for sale as its produced, some just for demonstration, but these workshops have been hailed as some of the more memorable experiences at TR!CKSTER. Make sure to include this experience in your schedule this year!
Demonstrating artists will include  JILL THOMPSON (Scary Godmother),  JIM MAHFOOD (L.A. Inkstains), FRANCESCO FRANCAVILLA (Black Beetle, Sorrow, Garrison), FABIO MOON (BPRD, Casanova), SCOTT MORSE (Strange Science Fantasy, BRAVE), ARMAND BALTAZAR (The Collidescape Chronicles, Pixar designer), and an assortment of other top visual storytellers from comics, film, and illustration backgrounds. Artists will vary daily.

PERFECT FOR: artists and aspiring artists in all fields; anyone looking to explore new media and technique/method

Another great SPIDER cover!

I hope you'll also be doing alternate covers (Alex Ross being the regular cover artist) to the just-announced DE pulp heroes crossover, MASKS, featuring The Shadow, The Spider, The Green Hornet, and Zorro!

Thank you, Dennis :)
And yes, I am keeping my fingers crossed on the chance to do covers for MASKS ;)
