Official Press Release
Komikwerks, LLC is pleased to announce that Shannon Eric Denton, company founder and author of recent comics “Zapt!” for TOKYOPOP, “Tabula Rasa” for Desperado/Image and “Grunts” for Arcana will be a guest at this weekend’s Phoenix Comicon 2006.
“The Phoenix show has been around a few years but this will be my first time I’ve been able to make it”, Denton said ” which I’m very excited about because this year’s show looks to be the best ever. The Komikwerks alumni and I are going to be in great company with the all-star guests they have lined up.”
In addition to Denton, Komikwerks creators set to make an appearance at the show include “Marvel Team Up” artist Andy Kuhn, “Zapt!” artist Armand Villavert Jr. and “Tabula Rasa” artist Matt Jacobs.
Denton will be on hand with copies of the Komikwerks anthologies containing the works of all the alumni and he’ll also be talking about
Komikwerks and the Actionopolis line during several of the panels he’s on.
Denton will also be unveiling the finished Actionopolis book line for the first time at a convention. Actionopolis books are hardcover illustrated prose novels. Comic pros like Dan Mishkin, Tom Mandrake, Adam Beechen, Dan Hipp, Rob M. Worley, Mike Dubisch, Gary Reed, Rick Hoberg, Bruce Zick, Christopher E. Long, Michael Geiger, JJ Hart and Will Meugniot have created these special action adventure stories for Young Readers and those young at heart.
Although they previewed at earlier shows, this will be the first chance comic fans have to see the finished product.
“We couldn’t be more ecstatic about the way the Actionopolis books have come out,” enthuses Denton. “We hope everyone at the show swings by, says ‘Howdy’ and takes a look at the books!”
