Indie Creator-Owned Comic Book Pop-Up Gallery / Retail Space & Symposia TR!CKSTER Brings Top Talent Together For Convention Week In San Diego,
July 19th-24th - Symposia Tickets Go On Sale The Week Of June 13th 

SAN DIEGO, CA June 13, 2011 – The highly anticipated creator-owned comics event TR!CKSTER is coming to San Diego July 19th-24th.  For fans and professionals looking to expand their knowledge while rubbing elbows with the brightest stars of the growing indie comics community, a series of special informative SYMPOSIA are being planned at TR!CKSTER. 

TR!CKSTER is free and open to the public, but you must buy a ticket to participate in Symposia.  Tickets go on sale this week on a first come first served basis at the TR!CKSTER website.  Tickets cost $35 a seat, or $350 for ALL-ACCESS. 

The Symposia workshop events encompass the heart of what TR!CKSTER is all about: education, sharing, respect, progress, and individual voice.  Offering insight from the hottest and most active creators in the business: Mike Mignola (“Hellboy”), Skottie Young, Jill Thompson (“Beasts of Burden”), Steve Niles, Doug Tennapel, Scott Morse (“Soulwind”), Jim Mahfood (“Marijuana Man”), and others, additional Symposia will be added up to the dates of each workshop – so keep checking the website for updates.  You will need a PayPal account to purchase tickets. 

Tickets are available in one of two ways: single-seat/single event tickets, and ALL-ACCESS tickets. ALL ACCESS will garner you entrance and participation in all 8 Symposia, free books including the limited edition A GLIMPSE OF CRIME AND TERROR, and an original framed painting by TR!CKSTER co-founder Scott Morse. Wine will be served during each event. 

TR!CKSTER is anticipating a Symposia seating capacity that’s very limited, so it is recommended that you get your tickets as early as possible.  This is an incredibly unique opportunity to discuss process, technique, method, and theory with the finest working storytellers and image-makers in comics, film, animation, and beyond.  The Symposia are intense crash-course discussion workshops focused with a specific agenda: to help artists and storytellers generate the best work possible. 

TR!CKSTER is the event everyone’s talking about.  With live art shows, gallery pop-ups, retail space, and free events like the “Pen n’ Drink” life drawing featuring live costumed models Tuesday thru Thursday nights 7:30pm-1am, Cartoon Brew’s festival of Student Animation Thursday morning 10am-11am, and the Independent Animation festival same time on Friday morning, there truly will be something for everyone.  Other special events and announcements are forthcoming. 

The event will be held at the San Diego Wine and Culinary Center, 200 Harbor Drive, Suite 120, San Diego, CA 92101, just across the street from the Convention Center.  TR!CKSTER runs from July 19th-24th.
