Law & Comics Goes to Hollywood

By Isabel on June 10, 2015//Leave a comment

Our  2015 Lindley Law & Comics lecture: Law & Comics Goes to Hollywood is coming up fast!  Some of the 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. Our speakers will explore protecting creators’ rights when dealing with Hollywood and other licensing options.


Our celebrity speakers:

  • 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.


Attendees will receive a 2015 Law & Comics shirt and a special goodie bag.

      Thanks for your question. This event is not part of Comic Con, we are not affiliated with them in any way. This is our way of celebrating Comic Con and reaching out to local artists and intellectual property attorneys. We want the community to know we are here for them, and we have many useful resources available to artists interested in learning about legal issues and their intellectual property rights – all year long!
