From Panel to Publisher - Representing Comic Book Creator Clients in 2019 (March 2019)

ON-DEMAND SEMINAR

2018 was a tumultuous year for the comic book industry: sales of comics declined while revenues from movies and television shows soared. One thing has remained consistent: more and more creators are gravitating to the comic book and graphic novel market as their medium of choice. Why not learn the fundamentals of this growing practice area?

This on-demand CLE, the first of a two-part workshop, provides a chance to learn from legal practitioners, comic book creators, and former comic book publishing executives. Get state of the industry updates, new practice tips and tricks, an in-depth look on how to negotiate television and motion picture deals from comic book source material, and more!

Each workshop may be taken individually, but the organizers recommend both be taken for maximum exposure to the subject matter. To purchase part two of this workshop click here.
