We talk with Amanda Conner & Jimmy Palmiotti called in to talk about their upcoming appearance on the Fan2Sea Cruise (coming in January) as well as their amazing comic work on Harley Quinn and more. Amanda Conner began her professional art career as an illustrator for New York City ad agencies. However, her love of comic books and cartooning soon led her to the comics world where she initially found work at companies such as Archie, Marvel, DC, and Claypool Comics. Her works include Vampirella, Painkiller Jane, Codename Knockout, Birds of Prey, Terra, Power Girl, Before Watchmen: Silk Spectre, as well as creator owned projects such as Gatecrasher (with co-creators Jimmy Palmiotti and Mark Waid) and The Pro (with co-creators Jimmy Palmiotti and Garth Ennis). Jimmy Palmiotti is a multi-award winning comic book creator with a wide range of experience and background in advertising, production, editorial, film writing, production, media presentation and video game development. Just a few of his clients include Nike, Disney, Warner Brothers, Lion’s Gate, Fox, and New Line, 2KGames and THQ Nordic. He is the co-founder of such companies as Event Comics, Black Bull Media, Marvel Knights and the current PaperFilms, where he is partners with Amanda Conner, Justin Gray, Frank Tieri and Paul Mounts.
Our review of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them starring Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston and Dan Fogler. Synopsis: The year is 1926, and Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) has just completed a global excursion to find and document an extraordinary array of magical creatures. Arriving in New York for a brief stopover, he might have come and gone without incident, were it not for a No-Maj (American for Muggle) named Jacob, a misplaced magical case, and the escape of some of Newt’s fantastic beasts, which could spell trouble for both the wizarding and No-Maj worlds.
It was a great show!
