COMMUNITY

Dark Horse's Scott Allie is coming to Northern Essex, to speak to the students. Or anyone else who wants to pop by. Also no one tell Eric Stephenson about that "third" thing…

Noted comics writer and editor Scott Allie will appear at Northern Essex Community College on Tuesday, March 25, from 6:30-8:30 p.m. in the David Hartleb Technology Center on the Haverhill campus, 100 Elliott St. This event is free and open to the public.

Allie will discuss the day-to-day responsibilities of being an editor for the third largest comic book publisher.

"I will start with my self-designed independent concentration on comics at Bradford College under Marc Mannheimer, through to my role as editor-in-chief at Dark Horse Comics. This will feature an in-depth look at what an editor does day to day at the third largest comics publisher in the United States, including the step-by-step process of collaborating on a comic from pitch to final lettered colors," says Allie.

INTRODUCING CAPTAIN COMIC BOOK

Today, for at least for fifteen minutes, every student in Elyria will be reading a comic book.

Captain Comic Book becomes an unlikely superhero after he reads a magical comic book and absorbs the powers of the book's character. Once he uses that power, he loses it and obtaining more powers is as easy as reading more comic books — hence the title, "Reading is Power."

"It's a fun and entertaining read, which captures the joy of comic books," Glanc said. "We are very excited about this first issue. They are ready to be distributed to every kindergarten through eighth-grade student in Elyria, as well as pockets of students in Oberlin, Fairview Park, North Olmsted, Cleveland and Medina County. We're talking about approximately 10,000 comic books going out Monday."

D. A. Bishop is a comic creator with a drawerful of rejection letters. So he's doing it all himself.

"It's so easy to set yourself up a cheap website and start posting things online," Bishop says.

So that's what he did. Bishop has created seven books on his own, including the zombie book Stranger, which has five issues so far, his fantasy story Of Stone, as well as the mini-comic Squirrels. A graphic artist by day, Bishop does all the drawing and text himself, confessing he doesn't know where the ideas for his stories come from.
