River City Con Features Daniel Boyd
Author and filmmaker Danny Boyd’s timing is uncanny; in the same summer the Obama administration ratcheted up it’s “war on coal” by slashing carbon dioxide emissions by 30% from coal fired power plants, Boyd will appear with his new graphic novel CARBON at the fourth annual River City Comic Con – a comic book and collectibles show with a family friendly atmosphere. Vendors from throughout the region will be on hand selling old and new comics, toys, games and pop culture novelties this Sunday, July 27 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Lafayette Hotel in Marietta, Ohio.
River City Comic Con’s Artist Alley will feature more than 25 exhibitors, writers and artists. Including Boyd, premiering his graphic novel CARBON. Set in the southern West Virginia coalfields, CARBON tells the story of what happens when an evil coal operator unwittingly awakens then releases a cursed and banished underground civilization onto the surface. The only thing that stands in the way of the end of the world is a disgraced, ex-pro baseball pitcher and a community of courageous coal miners. Boyd dedicated CARBON to coal miners and said, “Whatever side of the debate over the industry you fall on, miners are the often unseen heroes.” Boyd says that his graphic novels “primary goal is to entertain, but the story also reflects many real and complicated issues that face the coal industry today.” Boyd’s other works include the film and graphic novel versions of “Chillers”, movies “Strangest Dreams-Invasion of the Space Preachers” and “Paradise Park”.
Joining Boyd will be good friend, writing comrade (both Chillers graphic novel and 4 books of his own), and pro wrestling tag-team partner, Bill Bitner (aka Death Falcon Zero).
River City Comic Con admission is just $2.00 and can be purchased at the door, with children ages 8 and under free. Full information can be found at www.rivercitycomiccon.com.
