Knowing Your Worth – Creators Taking the Reins of Their IP
Sunday Dec 4 from 10- 11, Room 304 ABC
2022 has been a referendum on fair terms for comic creators. Everything from work life balance and compensation to control of creator’s intellectual property and how their work is marketed have come to the forefront of industry conversations. With the explosion of digital comics platforms and crowdfunding, hear from creator’s who are taking control of their own destinies and what creators who have never been published before should be looking for in their contracts and representation. Join a panel of creators including Einser and Ringo nominee Leeanne M. Krecic (Let’s Play, Dragon King Oath), New York Times bestselling author Nick Seluk (Heart & Brain, Lars the Awkward Yeti), and Eisner nominee Ryan Benjamin (Brothers Bond, Stan Lee’s Genesis) along with attorney Matt Sugarman of Weintraub Tobin and Rocketship Entertainment CEO and creator Tom Akel. Moderated by ReedPop Deputy Editor Tiffany Babb.
In addition to appearing at Los Angeles Comic Con, Rocketship Entertainment will also be represented at ThetaCon in Dania Beach, Florida when Ringo nominee Rob Feldman takes the stage with actor and producer Jon Heder (Napoleon Dynamite) for a panel on the Web3 animated adaptation of the hit webcomic Cyko KO.
The series is described as:
SuperEarth’s greatest hero is here! Cyko KO is the fourth-wall breakin’, pinball-addicted, cereal eatin’, motorcycle-ridin’ hero you’ve been waiting for! Follow Cyko KO, his sidekick Peachy Keen and their pet Meemop, as he protects the colonies of SuperEarth from giant monsters and crazy characters in this Saturday morning cartoon-inspired, all ages title.
Cyko KO premiered as the first WEBTOON Originals “FX” series in the United States in 2015. It later went to print and received a Ringo Award Nomination in 2018 for Best Kids Graphic Novel.
Now, Rob Feldman and Rocketship are producing the animated adaptation of his series with Replay and Verified Labs, and it is the first animated series ever to be funded on the Theta blockchain and distributed on Rewarded TV. He will be discussing the series with its star Jon Heder during the panel Cyko KO Animated Series Discussion w/ Rob Feldman, Replay & Verified Labs.
