EDITOR”S NOTE: I love the idea of Shark Tank for Comics - - creators get to submit their stories and/or art to two small publishers for consideration. Wish I could attend! Alas, the paying job and other life commitments get in the way once again. Information below supplied by Ramon Gils of Scifies.com .
Scifies Hosting Two Panels at Eternal Con
It’s June in Long Island and that means Eternal Con is On! This year, we will be organizing two, count ‘em TWO, panel discussions on June 13!
Careeers in Comics – Saturday @ 1pm
Most everyone wants to either draw or write comics books. But there are many more capacities in which one may be involved in the industry we all love. Join us as we hear first hand from top industry professionals on ways to break in, what to break in as, and how to stay in! With special guests: Heather Antos (Marvel Comics), Maria Cabardo (DC Comics), Peter Hamboussi (DC Comics), Hunter Gorrison (Valiant Entertainment) and Heidi MacDonald (The Comics Beat). Moderated by Ramon Gil (Scifies).
SharkTank for Comics – Saturday @ 4pm
Submit your art or finished stories for review and consideration for a chance to get a paying deal with a comic book publisher. Panelist Patrick Reilly (Pronto Comics) and Ramon Gil (Scifies) will be reviewing submitted work for publishing consideration. Creators can submit finished stories or show their art portfolio. If your work is good enough, you could get a paying assignment or publication deal! You must send your samples to firstname.lastname@example.org and if accepted, you must attend the event in order to be considered. For questions, please email us.
