ICE CREAM MAN #20

About INVINCIBLE #1 (Diamond Code SEP209165)—
Strange things begin to happen to Mark Grayson as he develops superpowers. Luckily, his dad is around to show him the ropes, at least he WOULD be if he weren’t so busy saving the world all the time. Mark is forced to go out on his own, and try and figure out how all this superheroing business works. The results are a monumental disaster. Meanwhile, there’s trouble at school when Mark is dragged into a fight of epic proportions.

This LCSD 2020 edition of the debut issue of the long running INVINCIBLE series by Robert Kirkman and Cory Walker will introduce the action packed adventure to a whole new audience of readers since its original launch in 2003. Now fans can revisit the iconic superhero story of Mark Grayson in anticipation of the upcoming Amazon Prime Original TV show adaptation coming soon and featuring the voices of fan-favorite Steven Yeun (THE WALKING DEAD), Academy and Golden Globe award winning J.K. Simmons, and two time Golden Globe winning Sandra Oh of the popular TV series Killing Eve!

INVINCIBLE #1

About MONSTRESS: TALK STORIES #1 (Diamond Code SEP209163)—
Bridging the gap between the fifth and sixth arc (which resumes in January 2021), MONSTRESS returns with TALK-STORIES, a two-part limited series that invites you to eat dumplings beside the fire and listen as Kippa recounts a defining moment from her childhood.

Whether caught up on the latest issue of MONSTRESS or not, fans will enjoy this delightful spinoff and will want to get their hands on this highly collectable Gold Foil LCSD edition.

MONSTRESS: TALK STORIES #1

About SPAWN #312 (Diamond Code SEP209162)—
This LCSD 2020 SPAWN #312 cover will be a variant of Todd McFarlane’s cover for the issue—only instead of listing out the names of those who’ve contributed to SPAWN over the years, this LCSD 2020 cover will wraparound and feature the names of retailers who are registered for the 2020 Local Comic Shop Day festivities! (For retailers who haven’t registered yet, there’s still time! Pop over to comicspro.com/lcsd2020 and register before 5pm PDT on Sunday, November 1 and you’ll be added to the cover!)

Cowabunga! Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Movie Returns to theaters to Celebrate 30 Years

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Cowabunga! This November, everyone’s favorite crime-fighting turtles are making a special three-day appearance on movie theater screens nationwide to celebrate 30 years of action, adventure and the art of ninjutsu with the 1990 blockbuster hit Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Fathom Events and Warner Bros., along with Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello and Raphael, invite moviegoers to come out of their shells and experience their favorite turtle-powered moments at hundreds of movie theaters around the country on Thursday, November 5, Friday, November 6 & Saturday, November 7.

Adapted from the early Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comics with characters created by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird, the movie achieved the then-seemingly impossible feat of bringing its reptilian heroes to full live-action with a team of puppeteers and a voice cast led by Brian Tochi as Leonardo, Corey Feldman as Donatello, Josh Pais as Raphael, Robbie Rist as Michelangelo and Kevin Clash as Splinter, the Turtles’ master. The film also features Judith Hoag and Elias Koteas.

Directed by Steve Barron, produced by Kim Dawson, Simon Fields and David Chan, with a story by Bobby Herbeck and screenplay by Todd W. Langen and Bobby Herbeck, the film opened on March 30, 1990, and immediately became the No. 1 film at the domestic box office, holding that spot for four consecutive weekends. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles would become one of the highest-grossing independent films to date.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. I don’t have a prepared portfolio. Can I share a link to my Website/Twitter/Instagram instead?

No, we are only accepting PDF attachments (max 25mb). PDF2GO is a free service if you donʼt own Acrobat.

2. I have more than 20 pages I want to share. Can I sneak in an extra couple?
No, this will disqualify your portfolio.

3. Can I just embed/attach single images instead of making a PDF?
No, we are only accepting PDF attachments (max 25mb, 20 pages of art). Again, you can use PDF2GO if you don’t own Acrobat. 

4. My PDF is too large to send as an attachment. Can I just send a link to my PDF portfolio?
No, we are only accepting PDF attachments (max 25mb). PDF2GO can shrink your PDF if you do not have Acrobat.

5. I’ve never been hired for professional work before, can I still submit my work?
Of course! If you’re an artist, submit any interior, cover, colors, lettering samples you’ve done on your own or for self-published books. If you’re a writer, submit any completed self-published comic you’ve worked on (no scripts will be accepted, period).

6. I missed the deadline to submit my work. Is it okay to still send it in if it’s before the selections have been made?
No, late submissions will not qualify due to the large number of submissions that need to be reviewed. Please meet the deadline, and if you cannot, keep an eye out for a future edition of the program.

7. I don’t think my work is good enough. What’s the point?

Portfolio Reviews arenʼt a competition to see whoʼs the best, but rather an opportunity to learn how to improve. Weʼre actively looking for creators who we think could benefit from one-on-one time with an Editor to take their work to the next level.


Please remember to review all of the guidelines carefully before sending your submission.Good luck and Valiant’s Senior Editors look forward to checking out your portfolios!

The panel will feature award-winning creators Loyiso Mkize, Olivier Madiba, and Laurean Ntaate. The panel will be hosted by cosplayer extraordinaire Sheila Amolo.

Kugali Media’s founders hail from all over the African continent and have backgrounds ranging from finance to game development to art and animation. However they have come together with a common goal, to use comic books, animation and AR (Augmented Reality), to bring African storytelling to the world. They regularly partner with creatives all over the world and they will be joining the convention for the panel Uniting Panafrican Voices to Tell Stories. Hosted by, Tolu Olowofoyeku and featuring creators Bill Masuku, Juni Ba, Joelle Mandengue, and Salim Busuru.
