COMMUNITY NEWS: CE Alum Joe Sergi Edits and Contributes to Iconic II Anthology!

The recently released ComicBook Artists' Guild (CAG) anthology, Iconic II was edited by CE alum and Workshop member Joe Sergi. Joe also contributed two stories to the anthology.

The Iconic anthology series takes well-known public domain characters, and twists and turns them in new and interesting ways. For example, Joe's story contribution, Cinderfella, is a gender-bending take on the classic Cinderella fairy tale. Joe's other story in the anthology is called The Impossible Dream, based on the Don Quixote character.

The Iconic II anthology is a 192-page, 6x9 inch paperback, available for $9.99 right here. The book also includes a Foreword by Comics Experience founder Andy Schmidt.

Joe is a graduate of several Comics Experience classes, including both the inaugural online Introduction to Comic Book Writing course in 2009, as well as the very first Editing and Project Management course last year.

Joe writes both prose (Sky Girl and the Superheroic Legacy) and comics (Great Zombies in History, Armed & Fabulous, and the forthcoming Aliens Among Us from Elevator Pitch Press).

Joe was also selected as a semi-finalist in the Who Wants To Create A Superheroine contest sponsored by the Shadowline Imprint of Image Comics, and received the 2010 Haller Award for Best Writer from the ComicBook Artist' Guild at the 2010 New York ComicCon.

You can follow all of Joe's work at his Cup of Geek website.

Congrats on the release of Iconic II, Joe!

  1. Yeah its a good article. According to you what we project managers do is communicating. And a lot of this communication is done during project meetings. It can sometimes feel like you are running from one meeting to another and that your time is often wasted. Meetings don’t start on time, the issues aren’t dealt with, there is no agenda, there is no focus, nobody assigns any follow ups or tasks and of course then they also don’t end on time. An efficient project manager is required for the good management of a project. I think a project manager should PMP certified. Looking forwards to apply what I learned in PMP classes in my company.
