Comic Con 2015 – Marvel And Adobe Team Up For Student Illustrated Avengers Comic
Are you an aspiring comic book artist? Are you a fan of Marvel? If so, we’d like to announce the opportunity of a lifetime. Marvel Comics and Adobe have teamed up with the Behance community to find four talented students who will be hired to work on a limited-edition Marvel Comic debuting at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con.
“Behance is an amazing showcase of talent,” says Senior Editor Mark Paniccia, “I was blown away by the sheer scope of gifted artists on the site. There’s literally a digital renaissance happening there.”
From now until April 13th, tag your online portfolio with #madethis #Marvel so your artwork gets noticed by Marvel and Adobe. Sequential art (panel to panel) should be included to highlight your storytelling skills. “The four students we pick will get a full Marvel creative experience. They’ll get pages scripted by a Marvel writer with interaction from the editorial team,” continues Paniccia, “I’m really excited about the possibilities and the fact that we’ll see student art from all four corners of the globe. I believe this is definitely a place where future comics superstars will be discovered.”
Winners will get a ticket to this year’s Comic-Con with access to the Marvel booth and a one-on-one portfolio review with Marvel editorial. The Avengers comic book will premiere at SDCC, and will also be available as a digital comic, as well as printed and distributed in comic stores throughout the United States! You may also be featured on Adobe Student’s social channels to help your portfolio stand out to future employers.
“Adobe’s Make It with Creative Cloud Campaign continually gives students access to real-world creative opportunities where they can apply their skills and talents to build creative confidence and their work portfolios,” explains AnnMarie Baba, Senior Manager Marketing Campaigns for Adobe. “With this in mind, we teamed up with Marvel to make comic book history.”
Baba goes on, “This is an opportunity for college students to showcase their talents and 21st century design skills, and in return give them professional exposure, invaluable real-world experience, and creative insight from top-tier professionals. The experience will show students the exciting and unexpected ways they can use their creativity in the real world and how a multi-disciplinary company with decades of creative history stays on the cutting edge of technology by integrating Creative Cloud into its workflow so that it can keep innovating.”
