Bechko, Hardman, Pleban Join Creators Workshop 1/15/13!

This Tuesday January 15, 2013 at 9pm Eastern Time, we'll be holding a Book Club discussion on Betrayal of the Planet of the Apes with special guests writer Corinna Bechko, co-writer and artist Gabriel Hardman, and Editor Dafna Pleban.

Betrayal of the Planet of the Apes is set just before the original Charlton Heston film in the classic Apes continuity, and has been described as "Doctor Zaius: Year One."

The story is a sci-fi political thriller loaded with action and adventure.

Corinna Bechko is a writer of both comics and prose (Heathentown, Exile on the Planet of the Apes) who can't shake her zoology background.

Gabriel Hardman has drawn Hulk and Agents of Atlas for Marvel Comics as well as Heathentown for Image/Shadowline. He is an accomplished motion picture illustrator whose credits include Spider-Man 3, X2: X-Men United, Superman Returns, and Inception.

Dafna Pleban is an Editor at BOOM! Studios over the Planet of the Apes line, as well as other titles such as The Hypernaturals and Dracula: The Company of Monsters.

Corinna and Gabriel are currently co-writing Planet of the Apes: Cataclysm, with Dafna on edits at BOOM! Studios.

Corinna and Gabriel are also collaborating on their new creator-owned project, Station to Station, which began in Dark Horse Presents #19, and features San Francisco under assault by giant monsters!

We're looking forward to a great Book Club discussion with our guests!

There's still time to join us at the Creators Workshop before these live sessions. 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!
