Sin is a joke to Brandon Hull. Morality a crutch for the weak, laws mere tools to be abused. But when the corruption he scoffed at begins to manifest on his once-perfect body, Hull finds himself cast into a hidden world of unspeakable horror from which there is no escape. How can you be saved when the evil possessing you is your own soul? Opening a jarring window on to a world of horror.

Opening a jarring window on to a world of horror from the writer of The Coffin, Firebreather, and Deathstroke and the Eisner Award-winning artist of Ex-Machina and Starman.

Comics In #YourImage: Adventure
10/6/2016 at 6:30 PM – 7:30 PM, in 1A21

Charles Soule (CURSE WORDS), Greg Rucka (BLACK MAGICK), Simon Spurrier (CRY HAVOC), Caspar Wijngaard (LIMBO), and Joe Harris & Martin Morazzo (SNOWFALL) are ready and willing to break down how they create perfect comic book adventures, versatile heroes, and chilling villains in complex stories that demand a lot from the reader, but have a huge payoff.

Comics In #YourImage: Character
10/7/2016 at 6:30 PM – 7:30 PM, in Room 1A24

A high concept for a comic is a great invitation, but great characters are what make you want to stay with the book. Characters that you empathize with or are cooler than cool are captivating. Sana Takeda (MONSTRESS), Steven T. Seagle (CAMP MIDNIGHT), Rod Reis (HADRIAN’S WALL), Donny Cates (TBA), and Jason Hurley & Jeremy Haun (THE BEAUTY) are going to dig deep into characters, and how it’s not as easy as a cool outfit and a snappy name.

Comics In #YourImage: Storytelling
10/8/2016 at 12:15 PM – 1:15 PM, in 1A21

You can’t judge a comic solely based on what happens to the characters in it. You have to look at how things happen, what the story looks like, and a bunch of other little tiny things that make comics one of the most vibrant storytelling mediums around. Karen Berger (SURGEON X), Gabriel Hardman (INVISIBLE REPUBLIC), Declan Shalvey (INJECTION), Marjorie Liu (MONSTRESS), Scott Snyder (WYTCHES), and Bryan Hill (ROMULUS) are some of the best storytellers in the business. In addition, check out an EXCLUSIVE preview of the upcoming OFFICER DOWNE film at the end of the panel, based on the graphic novel by Joe Casey & Chris Burnham!
