"Bill Finger's granddaughter speaks out after DC's WonderCon remarks..."

ATHENA FINGER RESPONDS: "75 years of Batman! No one could have predicted the longevity and the continued relevance of this comic book hero that has become a cultural icon when my grandfather, Bill Finger, collaborated with Bob Kane back in 1939.  My grandfather has never been properly credited as the co-creator of Batman although was an open secret in the comic book industry and is widely known now.  It is now my time to come out of the shadows and speak up and end 75 years of exploitation of my grandfather, whose biggest flaw was his inability to defend his extraordinary talent.  Due to what I feel is continued mistreatment of a true artist, I am currently exploring our rights and considering how best to establish the recognition that my grandfather deserves."

Reed Expo, which sponsors the New York Comic Con every year at The Jacob Javits Center, is doing a smaller version of the convention this June at The Jacob Javits Center called Special Edition: NYC. They asked me to participate in the convention. So, I’m putting together a panel titled "Creator-owned Comics (vs. Corporate-owned Comics)."

The Special Edition: NYC convention will be Saturday, June 14 to Sunday, June 15. I don’t have the exact time and date for the panel, but I’m supposed to be receiving that info by May 19th. If you‘re going to be attending the convention, then feel free to stop by to check out the panel.

Here’s my "Creator-owned Comics (vs. Corporate-owned Comics)" panel pitch that I submitted to Reed Expo for the:

There seems to be more and more comic books owned by the artists and writers that create them. We have Image Comics, Dark Horse Comics, and self-published comics. The creators that make such comics don’t have to answer to an editor. They can write and draw the kind of comic books that they want to write and draw. This is much different than the work-made-for-hire comics that are being published by the likes of Marvel Comics and DC Comics.

Has the advent of digital comics helped creators make their own comics? Is self-publishing a viable alternative for creator-owned comics? Does the freedom of webcomics play a part, as well? What’s the future of creator-owned comics compared to corporate owned comics? Do the readers gravitate to comics based on the creators? And how can aspiring artists and writers get in on the action of creating their own comic books?

http://albert.nickerson.tripod.com/anactoffaith08preview.html

Here’s the solicitation for issue #8:

AN ACT OF FAITH #8 begins the two-part "The Ark" storyline. It’s 1984 and Professor Jack leads a team of super-heroes in search of Noah’s Ark. Will the team locate the Ark? (And while we’re on the subject, does the big boat even exist?) Find out why the expedition becomes Professor Jack’s worst mistake and what all of this means to Nemish-Man, Crusader Girl, and Kid-Cockroach. Learn all about the origin of the mysterious Ninja Spider! Special Bonus: Al Nickerson and Dave Sim’s recent correspondence concerning Dave's work as a comic book cover artist. "The Ark" Part 1 is an excellent jumping on point for new readers.

Comics Is Comics / My radio interview with The Cosmic Portal...
« on: October 18, 2013, 12:41:57 PM »
I did a radio interview with The Voyce radio’s program, The Cosmic Portal. The show will air on Saturday, October 19th at 11pm (EST), and re-air the following Sunday at 11:30am (EST). Then, a week later, the show will be archived, as well. In the interview, I discuss my comic, AN ACT OF FAITH. We talk about my career in comics, the artists that have inspired me, and the comic books that have influenced me as a young reader. I was asked about the trend of adapting comics and comic book characters into film, which gave me an opportunity to talk about comic book Creator’s Rights.

THE CHRISTIAN POST has an article titled "Should Gospel Be Preached in Comics and Art? Artists Challenge Traditional Evangelism."

I was interviewed for the article. I discussed my comic, AN ACT OF FAITH, and the importance that comics have in telling important stories. I didn't realize that this article had been posted already. Although, they didn’t exactly get the name of my comic right...
