Creators of "Petrograd" Join Creators Workshop Live Tomorrow Night!

On September 11, 2012 at 8:30pm Eastern Time, we'll be having a Creators Workshop Book Club discussion of Petrograd with writer Phil Gelatt, artist Tyler Crook, and editor Jill Beaton.

Petrograd tells the tale of a reluctant British spy stationed in the heart of the Russian empire during first World War who is handed the assignment of orchestrating the death of the mad monk -- the Tsarina's most trusted adviser and the surrogate ruler of the nation.

In selecting Petrograd as its Book of the Year for 2011, iFanboy said: "Petrograd is impressive in every way, from the research and characterizations, to its excitement and action, to the wonderful cartooning, to the package itself. In these ways, Petrograd stands above every other book we read this year, and most from years prior."

Writer Philip Gelatt's first published comic work was Indiana Jones Adventures Volume One for Dark Horse, followed by Labor Days published by Oni Press. He has worked in the film industry in various desk-related capacities, including as a script reader and researcher.

Tyler Crook, in addition to being the artist on Petrograd, is the regular artist on B.P.R.D. for Dark Horse Comics. He was also awarded the 2012 Russ Manning Promising Newcomer Award at the 24th annual Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards earlier this year.

Jill Beaton began at Oni Press as an intern, moving to assistant editor in early 2008, and promoted to full editor in 2011. She has edited numerous titles at Oni including The Sixth Gun, Wasteland, The Secret History of D.B. Cooper, and many more.

There's still time to join us at the Creators Workshop before this discussions! We hope to see you there.

If you want to make comics, write or draw comics, or improve as a comics creator, you'll find like-minded friends and colleagues in our online workshops and courses. We hope to see you there!
