Making an Impact: Innovation in the Indie Comics Industry
• Friday, February 28: 5:30pm – 6:30pm
• Room: S504
• Description: Leading Indie comic book publishers Tom Bilyeu (Impact Theory CEO), Joe Pruett (AfterShock Comics Publisher) and Ralph Tedesco (Zenoscope Entertainment Founder) host an in-depth panel about innovating and making an impact within the indie comics book industry.
Award-winning writer and Chicago native Michael Moreci (Hexagon, Wasted Space, Black Star Renegades) will give his unique perspective as a creator.
The lively discussion will cover how the publishers are modernizing the industry, partnering with top creators and artists, finding new talent, emerging genres, expanding distribution platforms, cultivating fan bases, as well as discussing new projects from each studio.
An audience Q&A will give novice and professionals the opportunity to ask key decision makers about breaking into the industry, what each studio is looking for, fan favorite titles and more. There will also be free giveaways of comics for those in attendance.
The critically acclaimed slate of titles from each studio includes Impact Theory’s Hexagon and Neon Future; AfterShock Comics’ Godkillers, Disaster Inc., Dead Day and Join the Future; and Zenoscope Entertainment’s Grimm Fairy Tales, Robyn Hood Vigilante and Van Helsing vs Dracula’s Daughter.
