New York Comic Con Announcements

October is upon us, which means it’s time for New York Comic Con, one of the biggest comic and anime conventions in the world! There’s so much to announce this year, so let’s get to it!

First, we hope you’ll come say hello in the Small Press Section (seen in the image above with the red-dotted line around the space on the right of the map) – we’re at Booth 2752 – right on the corner so it’s easy to find.

Next up, you’ve probably already seen the news, but in case you haven’t, it’s so exciting to announce that the Image Comics graphic novel Sky Pirates of Neo Terra is going to become a video game on the iPhone and on Facebook thanks to Day 21 Studios!

And in other video game news, Camilla was chosen as one of only a few select artists to contribute to the Tomb Raider 15th Anniversary Celebration with a piece titled “The Depth” that you can see below!

It’s also a pleasure to see that the Tanpopo Hardcover Edition Kickstarter backed by BOOM! Studios is nearly 70% funded! We recently teased out a chapter break image that will be in the new book, which you can see here.

Don’t forget, we’re still running the Granimator Contest for the iPad until the end of the month, where users get a chance to play with Camilla’s original designs to create their own unique wallpaper image!

And last, but certainly not least, there will be a special update on the Helmetgirls: Origins graphic novel at NYCC – so keep your eyes and ears peeled to the Facebook and Twitter channels, as well as this blog to see the news when it breaks out into the public!

As always, thank you for your support and kind words this year. It’s been a whirlwind of activity and announcements, and seeing all of the news come together in once place like this is super! If you’re attending NYCC, please RSVP with us on Facebook, and we hope to see your wonderful, smiling faces at the show!

‘Sky Pirates of Neo Terra’ To Be Facebook and iPhone Game

You may have seen news of the announcement on The Escapist and CBR, but it’s official – Day 21 Studios, a veteran run, independent video game studio, is announcing the launch of their debut title Sky Pirates of Neo Terra. Designed for gamers ages 10 and up, Sky Pirates offers real-time online multiplayer racing, the first of its kind on Facebook.

An original game by Day 21 Studios with character designs by comic and pop surrealism artist, Camilla d’Errico, Sky Pirates’ unique visual style and thrilling racing offers gaming audiences a different kind of experience with their friends on Facebook than the typical Farm builder.

Sky Pirates takes place in the original setting of Neo Terra, a wondrous world with a rich backstory, forgotten technology and natural magic. The most popular sport in the land is Glidewing racing, which culminates in a Great Race in the valley of Neo Eden. Winning five consecutive Great Races earns the victor the right to name the leader of the Great Tribal Council. This year’s upcoming race has the cruel Pirate King poised for just that honor, one that could throw this peaceful world into turmoil.

Players get to choose their racers and Glidewings from any of the 14 tribes of Neo Terra or customize their own in order to best the Pirate King and five of their friends on over a dozen unique courses in this high-flying aerial racer.

To see more screenshots of the game, along with concept art and more, head over the Sky Pirates Facebook page. And to pre-register for the game’s launch, which automatically enters you in a contest for a chance to win one of five original pages from the graphic novel, please visit the Sky Pirates website.
