SDCC 2013: ComiXology Sponsors TR!CKST3R
ComiXology’s Meet Your Makers summer extravaganza continues with the announcement of comiXology’s sponsorship of the “The Pen and Drink” – where artists are welcome to enjoy a drink while picking up the pen to draw an array of live models while listening to great tunes during San Diego Comic-Con 2013.
TR!CKST3R will be held at the East Village Tavern Bowl, located at 9th & Market in San Diego from July 17th to July 20th with “The Pen and Drink” happening every evening. ComiXology co-founder John D. Roberts will also be giving a talk during TR!CKST3R on Saturday, July 20th at 1-2pm on Digital Comics: Tips and Tricks.
ComiXology has become a champion of creator owned works with their launch of comiXology Submit which debuted last March. It’s an easy to use self-publishing portal that enables independent comic book creators to reach comiXology’s global audience of comic fans.
Debuting in 2011, TR!CKST3R took the comic world by storm with their unique vision of a pop-up store with merchandise and events all supporting and promoting creator-owned work. Considered one of the top “places-to-be” during Comic-Con International, TR!CKST3R rapidly spawned it’s own brick and mortar store during their second year of existence. The permanent TR!CKST3R store can be found at 2631 Ashby Ave, Suite A, in Berkeley, California. The show within a show is one of my favorite aspects of SDCC.
