Comic Con Revolution 2018: Announcing The Joe Kubert Distinguished Storyteller Award, Future Storyteller Scholarship & Jumpstart Project

Comic Con Revolution
Below you will find a press release & downloadable version. Images are also reusable when running the release or writing about the content. If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to:

Drew Seldin - drew@atomiccrushevents.com
David Hyde - david.hyde@superfanpromotions.com
ANNOUNCING THE JOE KUBERT DISTINGUISHED STORYTELLER AWARD, THE JOE KUBERT FUTURE STORY TELLER SCHOLARSHIP, AND THE JOE KUBERT JUMPSTART PROJECT SCHOLARSHIP
 
Iconic comic book artist Joe Kubert—and his commitment to teaching the next generation of comic book creators—will be honored with a major new award and two scholarship programs announced today. The first ever Joe Kubert Distinguished Storyteller Award will be awarded at the second annual Comic Con Revolution, to be held May 19 & 20 at the Ontario Convention Center in Ontario, CA.

The Joe Kubert Distinguished Storyteller Award is designed to recognize outstanding comic book creators who exemplify both Joe Kubert’s artistic talent and his commitment to nurturing the comic book community. In addition, the Joe Kubert Future Storyteller Scholarship is being established by Atomic Crush Events for first and second year students of The Kubert School, while the Joe Kubert Jumpstart Project will help graduates begin their career. The Kubert School will determine the recipient of the scholarship and jumpstart project based on merit and honors. The recipient of the Joe Kubert Jumpstart Project will be named by the school at this year’s graduation and the Joe Kubert Future Storyteller Scholarship will go into effect next year, allowing students to apply for the scholarship. The award and scholarship program were announced by The Kubert School in tandem with Atomic Crush Events, which runs Comic Con Revolution and will host the annual Joe Kubert Distinguished Storyteller Award Ceremony.

"With the Joe Kubert Future Storyteller and Jumpstart Project, Atomic Crush Events has not only shown their commitment to building and investing in future creators for our industry but ultimately their love for the medium and their drive to have it not only succeed but thrive," said Andy Kubert. "Thank you so much for this endeavor."

"Joe Kubert was an incredible talent and his impact on the industry both on and off the page really can’t be overstated," said Atomic Crush Events Partner and Co-Founder Mike Scigliano. "This annual award and scholarship program will honor Joe’s legacy and help nurture the next generation of comic book creators." The award will be presented annually at Comic Con Revolution Ontario.

The recipient of the Joe Kubert Future Storyteller Scholarship will receive a one-time scholarship. Funding for the first annual Joe Kubert Future Storyteller Scholarship is provided by matching contributions from Atomic Crush Events, GeekChic Promotions, Storm King Comics and Superfan Promotions. Interested individuals and companies can also contribute to the scholarship program. The scholarship recipients will be announced later this year.

The recipient of the Joe Kubert Jumpstart Project will receive an artist alley table at any of the Comic Con Revolution events for one year and credit with SGX Print to create a pop-up banner and a limited print run of comic or art books. Storm King Comics' Sandy King Carpenter will review the winning graduates’ portfolio, and Superfan Promotions will consult the winner of the award on how to best promote their work.

"Mike Scigliano and Atomic Crush Events have come up with an amazing opportunity for our grads," said Adam Kubert. “They really care about our industry and helping out young creators. I couldn't think of a better or more creative way to jumpstart a young artist's career than the Joe Kubert Jumpstart Project. My Dad was the ultimate storyteller and I know the student that receives this award will work to be one as well."

Widely beloved and acknowledged as one of the greatest comic book artists, Joe Kubert is most frequently associated with his work on Hawkman and Sgt Rock for DC Comics, his illustrations of Tarzan, and his gripping war stories. As The New York Times wrote after his death in 2012, “Mr. Kubert was often described as a war artist, but as he made clear in interviews and in his work, it was far more accurate to call him an antiwar artist. His distinctive visual style—raw, powerful and unstinting in emotional immediacy—was ideally suited to capturing the brutality of battle, and capture it he did, over more than a half-century.”

In 1976, Kubert and his wife Muriel established The Joe Kubert School of Cartoon and Graphic Art in Dover, NJ. Today, The Kubert School is the country’s only accredited trade school for comic-book artists, offering students a comprehensive three-year program. The first graduating class of 1978 included bestselling Swamp Thing artist Stephen R. Bissette, Tarzan artist Thomas Yeates, and Rick Veitch, creator of The One. Alumni include artists Kevin Colden, Amanda Conner, Shane Davis, Jan Duursema, Scott Kolins, Steve Lieber, Alex Maleev, Tom Mandrake, Rags Morales, Tom Raney, Bart Sears, Eric Shanower, and Timothy Truman; writer and inker Karl Kesel, Eisner award-nominated Jared K. Fletcher; acclaimed colorist Matt Hollingsworth; DC Comics VP of Manufacturing Administration Nick Napolitano, and Archie Comics President Mike Pellerito. Current faculty include his sons, the bestselling artists Adam and Andy Kubert, Mike Chen, Jan Duursema and others.

The Joe Kubert Distinguished Storyteller Award event will be held at Comic Con Revolution on Saturday May 19 at 5:30 in Ballroom B in the Ontario Convention Center.

“We are delighted to appoint Ferne to lead this new venture and proud of the partnership with TIFF, which will position the inaugural event at the heart of Canada’s most progressive Festival,” added Jenkinson

“I’m thrilled to be working with C21 to bring this exciting new venture to life”, said Ferne Cohen.  “In addition to poignant content and news, our premiere event during TIFF will be laser-focused on the future of the television industry and the celebration of exceptional content.”

"Exploring new frontiers of the moving image and digital content sparks interest for TIFF audiences and attendees,” said TIFF’s Director of Industry, Kathleen Drumm. “TIFF welcomes C21 Media's entrance into the Canadian market, and is pleased to offer our Industry delegates special rates to attend this event."
