I’m very pleased and excited to announce two more great guests at STAPLE! - Chris Schweizer and Jason Neulander!
Chris Schweizer is the author of the "Crogan's Adventure" series of graphic novels, including the Eisner-nominated "Crogan's Vengeance" and the recently-released "Crogan's March," available in the spring from Oni Press. Each graphic-novel in the series features a look at a different member of the historic Crogan family, a bloodline chock full of swashbuckling adventurers, gunfighters, pilots, spies, ninjas, and smugglers. Chris is also a full professor of Sequential Art and Animation at the Atlanta branch of the Savannah College of Art and Design, and his comics have been published by Oni Press, Top Shelf Productions, Image Comics, Evil Twin Comics, and Nickelodeon Magazine, among others. Chris will be presenting an entertaining and educational cartooning lecture as part of the programming for this year's STAPLE!

Jason Neulander is the producer, director, and co-creator of The Intergalactic Nemesis, a radio drama that got its start as a lark at Little City Espresso Bar and Cafe in Austin back in 1996 and since then has played sold-out shows at the Paramount and Hogg Auditoriums and toured to 30 cities and towns across the US. He also created the two sequels Return of the Intergalactic Nemesis and The Intergalactic Nemesis: Twin Infinity. With the "living comic book" version, Neulander has taken the artwork for the comic book series he scripted and combined it with the live show. The artwork, by Austin artist Tim Doyle (mrdoyle.com), is projected panel by panel as three actors, one foley artist, and one musician perform the story live. The Intergalactic Nemesis: The Living Comic Book is going to be performed in its entirety at the Long Center for the Performing Arts on Labor Day weekend 2010 and next year's Fantastic Fest.
