Gil Kane Panel Added to Syracuse’s Salt City Comic-Con
Hermes Press Publisher Celebrates Influential Artist
Daniel Herman (author of Gil Kane the Art of the Comics, Gil Kane Art and Interviews and Silver Age the Second Generation of Comic Book Artists and Publisher of Hermes Press) will explore the work of one of the most influential artists of the Silver Age of comics, Gil Kane. Herman will discuss Kane’s impact on the art of comic book storytelling, his creation of the first modern graphic novels, his work in animation and more.
The program will begin with a brief video and will explore Kane’s growth starting in the Golden Age. There will also be a question and answer segment at the end of the program.
For the Salt City Comic-Con, Hermes will also be offering 100 Convention Exclusives of two titles: The Complete Jim Aparo Charlton Phantom and The Art of Jim Davis’ Garfield. Each book will include a “special limited edition insert plate”. At the convention, Hermes Press will discount 20% off all the rest of their catalog of books.
This Gil Kane panel is scheduled for Sunday, June 25th, at 4:00 PM in the Hall of Justice at Salt City Comic-Con.
“After a long day on the convention floor, I always enjoy getting off my feet and listening to an engaging panel. As Gil Kane has always been a favorite, this panel seems like the perfect addition to an already impressive comic-con” said Ed Catto, Pop Culture Expert & Marketing Executive. “I’m especially excited to see Kane’s art in this unique multi-media presentation.”
