Posted on 14 April 2011 by Duncan

The SCAD sequential art department will host leading comic book publishers and editors at its annual Editors’ Day Friday, May 13, and Saturday, May 14, 2011 at SCAD-Savannah. Editors’ Day is a two-day event where editors and publishers will review SCAD sequential art students’ portfolio in Norris Hall, 548 E. Broughton St. Each day will end with panel discussions of editors at the SCAD Student Center from 6:00-7:00pm.

Visiting editors and publishers include: Chris Staros, Publisher, Top Shelf Productions; Dave Johnson, Character Designer, Cartoon Network; Diana Schutz, Executive Editor, Dark Horse Comics; Dan Vado, Publisher, Slave Labor Graphics; Bob Schreck, Editor-in-Chief, Legendary Comics; Jill Beaton, Assistant Editor & Talent, ONI Press; Will Dennis, Editor, DC/Vertigo; Calista Brill, Editor, First Second Books; Chuck Messinger, Editor-in-chief, Creator’s Edge Press.

Editors’ Day is open to all students at any SCAD campuses (including eLearning), and alumni. Students must apply for portfolio reviews, which will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. Applications are available below, and students must submit samples from their portfolio. Alumni, Atlanta campus and eLearning students can email applications with portfolio samples to afisher@scad.edu. Although graduating students and alumni have priority, all student levels are welcome, and every effort will be made to assign students to an editor or publisher, based on availability.

SCAD Editors’ Day has been a proud part of the history of the sequential art department for many years. The event represents one of the few major academic acknowledgements of comic art and sequential art storytelling in the nation. The Editors’ Day permits guests to discuss sequential art concerns from many differing points of view and provides students with an opportunity to network and learn from a variety of top industry professionals.
