Further, the panel will host Q&A on the subject as well as highlight the role of their new imprint, Absolute Comics Group in offering creators a method for breaking into the world of comic publishing.
“Coming from our beginnings as a Webcomic company, as well as our digital platforms, we are keenly aware of the desire of budding young creators to break into comics,” stated Red Giant Editor, Benny Powell. “MegaCon is a great place to reach out to these superstars of tomorrow and perhaps even find a few to bring into the fold!”
Red Giant and Absolute Comics also have a booth at the event running May 25-28, at booth #1182. Staff will be present for portfolio reviews for new talent as well as any creative teams who wish to join the newly-announced imprint, Absolute Comics Group.
The Absolute Comics Group imprint will publish a variety of traditional-format comic book titles, followed by trade paperbacks collecting the issues for those titles. These titles will be distributed through thousands of comic book specialty and book stores worldwide, beginning with the August 2017 Previews order catalog.
The Absolute Comics Group will be comprised of multiple lines:
- A “core” line of titles mining the company-owned Intellectual Property that Red Giant has developed and acquired since inception, such as WAYWARD SONS, DARCHON, AMPED, FIRST DEFENSE, DUEL IDENTITY, etc. – with a twist. These core titles will all exist within a “shared universe!”
- A line of “creator-owned” titles, offering talented creators, both newcomer and established, an exciting new home for bringing their own universes to life.
- A line of licensed titles based on properties from television, movies, video games, and new media to broaden brand awareness.
