On Friday, March 25th at 2:00, Rocketship Entertainment will be hosting the panel Knowing Your Worth – Creators Taking the Reins of Their IP.
2022 was 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 Eisner and Ringo nominee Leeanne M. Krecic (Let’s Play, Dragon King Oath), 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.
