MOA DOING THE DiNK!
MAN OF ACTION creators Joe Kelly and Steven T. Seagle are creators/writers/executive producers who translate their own original ideas (BEN 10, GENERATOR REX, BIG HERO 6, I KILL GIANTS) and others’ (MEGA MAN, MARVEL’S AVENGERS ASSEMBLE, ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN) into hit TV shows, animation, film, and comics/graphic novels for their MAN OF ACTION imprint at Image Comics. MAN OF ACTION also has many upcoming live-action TV shows based on other MOA creations. This panel will help attendees visualize different ways to create original intellectual properties and will also explain how to translate them across media platforms.
Ever wanted to ask a comics writing legend about how he comes up with the idea and crafts it into the comics you love? Man of Action’s Joe Kelly is your man for that! He turned his award-winning comic into the new critically-acclaimed I Kill Giants film and yes, he wrote the screenplay and was one of the producers. Kelly will walk you through the process from the idea to the page to the screen. And sure, he’ll also talk about his other comics, writing and story structure and his work with Man of Action Entertainment.
