LACE is excited to welcome back the SAVAGE one himself, KC comic book writer B. Clay Moore.
B. Clay Moore has written for DC, Marvel, Image, Oni, Top Cow, Wildstorm, and many others, but is probably best known for the many characters and concepts he had co-created for various comic book publishers, several of which are in various stages of development in Hollywood. These include HAWAIIAN DICK, THE EXPATRIATE and BATTLE HYMN for Image Comics, CASEY BLUE and THE WHISTLING SKULL for DC Comics, THE LEADING MAN for Oni Press, and SAVAGE for Valiant Comics. Upcoming work includes ENDLESS SUMMER with Shane White for Insight Comics, and SON OF A BITCH, with Dean Kotz and Marissa Louise.
Bringing a bit of West Coast cool to the MHK! LACE could not be happier to announce our next guest… award-winning comic book writer, Joshua Dysart.
Since his breakthrough comic book “Violent Messiahs” in 2000, New York Times bestselling author Joshua Dysart has contributed to some of the most high-profile graphic novel projects of the past decade, including “Hellboy”, “Swamp Thing” and “Neil Young’s Greendale”. Most notably, from 2008 to 2010 Dysart authored a two-year run on Vertigo’s comic “Unknown Soldier.” Dysart spent a month in Acholiland, Uganda during the LRA/UPDF ceasefire of 2007 researching the work. “Unknown Soldier” garnered two Eisner Award nominations, for Best New Series and Best Single Issue, as well as international critical acclaim. Since 2012 he has been one of the key creators in the relaunch of Valiant comics, using his series “Harbinger” and “Imperium” to help architect the larger Valiant universe. In December 2014 he went to Iraqi Kurdistan to interview refugees fleeing ISIS, and in January of 2016 Huffington Post World hosted the graphic novella that came from that research, “Living Level-3: Iraq”, which is free to download on Comixology. In May of 2016, he spent ten days in Aweil, South Sudan investigating the mass migration of human beings fleeing food insecurity in the region. This research will form the basis of the upcoming, “Living Level-3: South Sudan”.
