Okay we told you ComiXology has a lot of stuff going on at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. Not only are they co-sponsoring the Eisners and teaming with the CBLDF, they are also putting on a two hour event called “The Blank Page Project” which will benefit The Hero Initiative. Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner will co-host the two hour bash where creators team up to fill a 8 x 12 foot comic page with art. The resulting mega-page will be auctioned off to benefit The Hero Initiative.
It’s free to attend and open to all so get yourself over there. It takes place Thursday, July 18th from 5pm to 7pm outside the Vela restaurant at the back of the Hilton San Diego Bayfront Hotel, located just south of Hall H.
“The Blank Page Project” is part of ComiXology’s new “Meet Your Makers” promotion which spotlights comics creators and the creative process—and we’re told there is more yet to be announced.
