Join us for the 2015 Lindley Law & Comics lecture: Law & Comics Goes to Hollywood. Many of today’s biggest movies (Batman, Iron Man, and the Avengers), television shows (Walking Dead, Arrow, Gotham, and Flash), and on streaming service programs (Daredevil) started as comic books and graphic novels. We’ll explore protecting creators’ rights when dealing with Hollywood and other licensing options.

Join our 3 panelists as we explore this fascinating topic.

  • Jonathan Maberry is a New York Times best-selling author of horror and young adult novels who also writes comics and has titles in development for both movies and television.
  • Chris Ryall is the long-time CEO of IDW, the San Diego-based comics company that publishes numerous licensed titles – from My Little Pony to Star Trek, and a writer with multiple properties in development.
  • Stu Rees is an attorney and cartoonist. He is the only attorney specializing in syndication contracts and represents cartoonists as they try to publish their work in a variety of mediums.

All attendees will receive the 2015 Law & Comics shirt and a special goodie bag.
