Anime USA 2011 proudly announces our final round of webcomics guests
Anime USA 2011 announces Tamuran and Shadowbinders as webcomics guest for this year's convention on November 18-20th at the Hyatt Regency Crystal City.
H. A. "Chezhnian" Kennedy and Erin Fitzgerald (left) are the respective creator/writer and artist/co-writer of Tamuran, a manga-style epic fantasy webcomic. Tamuran is the story of a young royal heir suddenly turned king-in-exile and his quest to save his kingdom from the country of powerful, grudge-bearing sorcerers that has taken it over. The young king must travel far across the wilds of his dying land, accompanied only by a few unlikely and unexpected protectors - who include a wild elf whose entire clan has mysteriously disappeared, a shapeshifting girl from a magical ascended race who knows little of the mortal world, and a huge man-eating forest beast with an academic bent. Their comic can be found at www.tamurancomic.com
Created by former Disney comics alumn Thom Pratt (drawing under the pen name of "Kneon Transitt") and his wife Kambrea Pratt, the Shadowbinders webcomic set sail online in 2010 and hasn't slowed down since. Shadowbinders has found an audience in fans of steampunk, anime and young adult literature, in addition to fans of traditional comic books. The comic can be read online for free at www.shadowbinders.com , and a print collection will be available this Fall. Their comic can be found at www.shadowbinders.com
Registrations are at $43 until October 30th along with further information about the con can be found at www.animeusa.org .
