2020 SPECIAL GUESTS
MIKE ROYER

Drawn to Southern California in the spring of 1965, Mike Royer began his career assisting Russ Manning on the TARZAN, and MAGNUS ROBOT FIGHTER comic books and spent the next 14 years working in comic books and strips and T.V animation, even laying out 1/3rd of the 1st Saturday morning SPIDERMAN animated series. He inked, lettered, wrote, and penciled a variety of titles for Gold Key Comics and found time to do more than 2 dozen CRUSIN' record album covers while also contributing to Warren's CREEPY, EERIE and VAMPIRELLA magazines.
However, Mike is probably best known for his almost decade work as JACK KIRBY's personal choice to work with him on his Fourth World series at D.C. and his return to Marvel. Towards the end of their working together Mike found time to letter and ink the last 6 months of Manning's TARZAN Sunday strip, the last 4 months of which were signed Manning and Royer, and the first 4 months of Russ's STAR WARS daily and Sunday strip.
Beginning in the spring of 1979 Mike spent the next 14 years on staff at the WALT DISNEY STUDIOS as a product designer and character artist in the Consumer Products Division addressing the areas of book publishing, comic books and strips and all forms of park and licensed merchandise. He designed and art directed the DICK TRACY and 3-D ROCKETEER music company Read-a-Long comic books. Mike created the "new look" that launched the massive WINNIE THE POOH licensing program in late 1993 and was featured in a 43 min. "How To Draw Pooh" video sent out to over 40 licensees. Mike takes no small amount of pride in the fact that within a year POOH was outselling MICKEY MOUSE worldwide.
In June of 1993, Mike left his studio staff position to continue working full time as an independent contractor for the DISNEY STORE where he was called "the POOH Man" and also designed several best-selling sculpted products using the vast DISNEY cast of characters.
After 7 1/2 full time years with the DISNEY STORE Mike returned to the world of freelance as an Art Service for a variety of clients, creating orthographic character turns for a video game, DIGIMON products, on screen icons for FOX FAMILY CHANNEL, to name just a few.
In the spring of 2001 Mike and his wife and idea collaborator returned to his birth state, Oregon, settling in Medford, where he has continued to do such things as some inking for Eric Larsen and Steve Rude, hundreds of DISNEY collector pin designs, and recreations for fans. Mike believes that his passion, attention to detail and accuracy, and his commitment to integrity will keep him at the board for some time to come.

ART ADAMS

Arthur Adams, a self-taught artist, became a fan favorite when, at the age of 19, he left his job making pizzas for the masses to pencil the critically-acclaimed Longshot limited series, written by Ann Nocenti and published in 1985 by Marvel Comics. He has been in high demand as an artist since.

Adams' highly distinctive and detailed artwork gained him considerable popularity amongst fans and editors, if not his inkers, and he's enjoyed being a cover artist, and the artist and sometime writer for miniseries, specials, and annuals. These days, in order to spare inkers the pain, his work is largely shot directly from pencils or inked by himself, with some exceptions.

In his career, Arthur has worked on many titles, Batman, Superman, Spiderman, X men, Godzilla, Vampirella, Rocketeer, the Authority, Danger Girl, Excalibur, and the Hulk, to name a few. He also launched his creator owned, written, and drawn series Monkeyman and O'Brian in 1993 with Dark Horse Comics "Legend" imprint. He also had a ten-issue run on an anthology series featuring the character Jonnie Future. The eight page Jonnie Future stories appeared in Tom Strong's Terrific Tales (2002-2004). More recently, Arthur has been working on Ultimate X for Marvel Comics with writer Jeph Loeb, and issue one launched in 2010.

Adams has provided cover images for issues of the Justice League of America, Appleseed, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Green Lantern, Hulk, Avengers, X Men, Red Sonja, Superman, Batman, and Vampirella, among other titles. In addition to his work in comic books, he has also produced popular commercial art, such as numerous illustrations for trading cards, posters, shirts, and various other comics-related merchandise. Outside the field of comics, he has also provided illustrations for various magazines, movies, video games, and worked in toy design, packaging art, and even a series of X-Men-themed Campbell Soup cans.

Arthur lives in Northern California in the woods somewhere, like his hero, Bigfoot. When told he should have a "Web" site he went outside and tried to spin his own web. It was funny and sad all at once. We got him back inside and gave him his medicine.

When Jack finally decided to go independent, he wrote, penciled and inked his opus, "The First Kingdom" initially with Comics & Comix Co. from 1974 to 1977 and then with Bud Plant, a Comics & Comix co-founder. The final 24th issue was published in 1986. A recently discovered series of letters between Jack Katz and Will Eisner indicates Katz may have been the originator of the "graphic novel"' as a term and certainly in practice, even if his work was initially released in a serialized form.

The Making of "Princess Leia's Stolen Death Star Plans"

How do you show your fan love for both Star Wars and The Beatles...and not get sued by either? In 2017, Palette-Swap Ninja released the parody album "Princess Leia's Stolen Death Star Plans," which retold the story of A New Hope to the tune of Sgt Pepper's -- in order! It was featured by NPR, Entertainment Weekly, and Nerdist, and made a fan out of Mark Hamill himself. We'll go over how we put together such an ambitious project and -- most importantly -- the steps we took to avoid any Imperial entanglements. If you're considering releasing a creative work based on an existing franchise -- or if you just want to hear some funny Star Wars songs set to Beatles classics -- this one's for you.
