Press Release

Sequart Research & Literacy Organization and Respect! Films are proud to announce that the SDCC panel for their Comics in Focus: The Image Revolution documentary will feature special guest panelist Marc Silvestri!

If you’re a fan of Image Comics and are going to be at the San Diego Comic Con on Thursday evening (July 12th), you won’t want to miss this panel! Moderated by F.J. DeSanto (co-producer of The Spirit), the panel will feature Image Revolution director Patrick Meaney (Grant Morrison: Talking with Gods, Warren Ellis: Captured Ghosts), Sequart founder Julian Darius, and of course Marc Silvestri. The hour-long panel will feature over 10 minutes of exclusive footage from the documentary, behind-the-scenes info from Silvestri, and Q&A!

The panel will take place in room 32AB from 8pm to 9pm PDT on Thursday, July 12th. And yes, there are some other interesting panels happening at the same time, BUT while the comic book news sites will report on those other panels, you won’t be able to get another look at this footage until the DVD comes out in October.

If you’re a big Image Comics fan, consider swinging by!

About Comics in Focus: The Image Revolution: Twenty years ago, a group of artists left Marvel Comics to create their own company, a company that continues to influence mainstream comics and culture to this day. Image Comics began as more than just a publisher — it was a response to years of creator mistreatment, and it changed comics forever. Comics in Focus: The Image Revolution will tell the story of Image Comics, from its founders’ work at Marvel, through Image’s early days, the ups and downs of the ’90s, and the publisher’s new generation of properties like The Walking Dead. This amazing story will be told through new interviews with the people who made it happen. And what better time than during Image’s 20th anniversary to make this documentary?
