Award-winning author Maxwell Alexander Drake will use current examples to help you gain insight into how to put your story together in a compelling way that will keep your readers turning the pages to see what happens next.

Science in the Stories of H. P. Lovecraft

Lovecraft (1890-1937), in his introduction to the story The Call of Cthulhu wrote: "We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far. The sciences, each straining in its own direction, have hitherto harmed us little; but some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the deadly light into the peace and safety of a new dark age."

Marvel Comics' 75th and Daredevil's 50th
75 years ago the Marvel Universe first came to life with the release of Marvel Comics #1 (soon to become Marvel Mystery Comics), featuring the Human Torch and the Sub-Mariner. The company was called Timely then, but as you can see, the word "Marvel" was already part of its comics world. Continuously publishing since 1939, Marvel revolutionized comics in the early 1960s with the help of legends such as Stan Lee, Jack Kirby, and Steve Ditko. Ever since then, Marvel has proven what remarkable staying power and worldwide appeal these characters have. Daredevil celebrates his 50th anniversary this year, for one! Newer waves of talented artists and writers have all taken the helm at developing these beloved characters' storylines and influencing their looks and appeal into the 21st century. Moderated by Mark Waid (Daredevil), Comic-Con special guests Dan Slott (writer, Superior Spider-Man, Amazing Spider-Man) and Joe Quesada (chief creative officer, Marvel Entertainment) will be on hand to discuss these heroes and what keeps them fighting the good fight.

Fictionalized Nonfiction: The Art of Combining Fact and Fiction
The Beat's Heidi MacDonald will get today's best literary cartoonists to spill their guts on just how they use moments and memories from their lives with actual facts from the time period and how they combine everything into the art of nonfiction or the fictitious memoir. Gilbert Hernandez is the cartoonist behind Marble Season, Bumperhead, and Love and Rockets that touches on his childhood but never tells the full story of his life as one of the famous Hernandez Brothers. Mimi Pond's Over Easy tells the story of Madge, an art school drop out in the '70s when hippy met punk, a story close to her own life. David Lasky's The Carter Family is a biography of the first superstar group of country. MacDonald will ask: Do they draw likenesses from memories or from photographs? Do they take liberties with the facts to tell a more engrossing story? "Fictionalized Nonfiction" will peek into the creative process of today's leading graphic novelists.

Full-Time Creative Work on a Part Time Schedule
No matter which industry (comics, illustration, movies, webcomics, design or animation, costuming or cosplay), "breaking in" has never been a more apt term than in today's media. It is a full-time job, and you only have part-time hours to accomplish it. Topics cover a myriad of organizational subjects: different kinds of leadership that match your groups needs, the importance of starting everyone on the same page and how to keep everyone there, how to build your team, a variety of angles on deadlines and work environments. The panelists, representing a broad cross-section of levels of authority, departments, work pipelines, and sizes of organizations, come from a variety of media, including illustration, writing, design, animation, podcasting, and live-action film production. Topher Davila (art director, GeekdomWear), Sean Glumace (Adobe education leader), Brendan Creecy (Radio BrendoMan podcast), Heather Joseph-Witham, Ph.D. (Mythbusters and various TV), Gene Turnbow (general manager, KryptonRadio.com), Ron Coleman, Ph.D. (molecular geneticist), Jonelle Davila (creative director, TheGeekGirlProject.com), Chris Dickens (writer and co-creator of Vigilante Project), and Mario Martinez (co-creator, TomatoTV), provide content that is a mix of speaking, questions and some short interactive applications where the audience can directly apply the topics covered. As an added bonus to help get your creative work life further along, the panel will give away a one-year subscription to Adobe's Creative Cloud.
