AND a Workshop session with writer Mark Sable and artist Paul Azeceta on their collaboration on Graveyard of Empires and on other titles from Marvel and Image!
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.
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!
Mark and Paul will be discussing their many collaborations together, including Graveyard of Empires from Image. In that book, set in Afghanistan, Marines face a never-ending onslaught of Taliban. But even hell can get worse. The dead come back to life, and only together can both sides of today’s conflict survive tomorrow’s undead assault.
Mark Sable is also the writer of Batman: Two-Face: Year One, Supergirl and Teen Titans Spotlight: Cyborg for DC, and the creator-owned Unthinkable for BOOM! Studios. He is a writer for both stage and screen (big and small).
Paul Azaceta is an artist who has also worked on numerous other popular properties including the Amazing Spider-Man, B.P.R.D., Daredevil, and Potter's Field with writer Mark Waid.
We're looking forward to two great discussions with our guests!
