A colourful evening of beer, art, comics, and discussion in celebration of Brooklyn Brewery’s limited release beer, Defender IPA. Brooklyn Defender IPA is a specialty beer brewed as the official beer of New York Comic Con for the past four years. Each year we team up with a new artist to create a Defender superhero. This year we’re working with illustrator Khary Randolph.
Khary will partner with Andy Oliver, Editor in Chief of Broken Frontier, to discuss their backgrounds as members of the art and comics industries as well as the state of these industries in both the UK and the US. Chris Thompson, Events Manager at Orbital Comics will host the discussion, which will be recorded for the popular Orbital In Conversation podcast.
Now’s your chance to ask the experts all that you’ve been wanting to know about comics. How did they get to where they are today? What makes them the most excited about comics? Why do they Defend Art?
All ticketed guests will receive a complementary Defender IPA and you’ll get to take home the limited edition glass. For an extra £5, we’ll refill that glass as many times as you’d like. Khary will also be signing Defender posters.
