2015.07.26 – Comic Book Master Class with Greg Pak in NYC

By Greg Pak

This Sunday afternoon, I’ll be leading a comic book master class at the Museum of Chinese in America as part of the Asian American International Film Festival! It’ll be a blast — I’ll go over all aspects of comic book making and give out free books, Kingsway West posters, and ABC Disgusting stickers. Grab your tickets here: https://mocanyc.obsres.com/Info.aspx?EventID=7 

Here’s the description:

For over a decade, Greg Pak has been writing acclaimed comic books featuring icons like the Hulk, Batman, Superman, and Storm — as well as creator-owned books and Kickstarter breakout hits like Code Monkey Save World and the Princess Who Saved Herself.
In this in-depth, practical master class, Pak will dive into the nuts and bolts of comic book making, using the 22 year development process of his newest creator-owned comic book as a case study. Topics will include:
  • The creative storytelling challenges and practical business considerations of moving from filmmaking to writing comics.
  • The huge joys of bringing Asian American and other diverse characters to life in comics.
  • The step-by-step work of making a comic book, from concept to story to script to art to publishing, promotion, and audience building.
  • The specific challenges of funding and publishing independent comics in the digital age — both via Kickstarter and traditional publishers.
Also featuring nifty comics-related giveaways and never-before-revealed sneak peeks from Pak’s secret, new creator-owned work!
Admission:

Free – ACV & MOCA Members

2015.05.20 – Amadeus Cho in “Secret Wars Planet Hulk” #1

PHULK2015001B001_col

Marvel editor Mark Paniccia called me up a while back to see if I’d be interested in writing an eight page backup story for Sam Humphries’ crazy “Secret Wars Planet Hulk” #1 book. The idea was to tell the origin story of the insane, Hulk-infested world Sam’s book is set in — and the hook was the chance to tell another story with Amadeus Cho, a character artist Takeshi Miyazawa and I created ten years ago.

I said yes, of course.

The book comes out tomorrow and we’re pretty thrilled with it! Tak even drew the Amadeus story! It’s gotten some pretty amazing reviews! So feel free to check it out at your local comics shop tomorrow!

Tons of Storm, Turok, and Superman interviews

storm-cosplay-senyc

In the last couple of weeks, I’ve been interviewed a bunch of times by different cool folks about different projects. Here are some excerpts and links – feel free to check ’em out!

Storm herself (as cosplayed awesomely by Janel McClain, above) interviewed me at the Special Edition NYC comic con for Word of the Nerd.

I talk a lot about the use of history in MAGNETO TESTAMENT, questions of Native American representation in TUROK, and compare Superman and Storm in this interview for Weekly Comic Book Review.

Here’s podcast I did with Ryan and Ben for Marvel.com about the upcoming STORM series.

Comic Attack asked me fun questions about Amadeus Cho.

Dynamic Forces asked me about the new STORM book – and I spill a little about the possible importance of Hank McCoy.

Unleash the Fanboy asked me about Storm, Hercules, the gay romance in X-TREME X-MEN, and what I’d do if I weren’t writing comics. Here’s an excerpt:

You’re trying to learn about and understand people from all different backgrounds and places and tell stories that connect in some way and help people … When we’re writing, we’re struggling to understand the world, you know what I’m saying, and sharing that experience will hopefully help other people as they’re making those same kinds of efforts. This sounds a little silly but because you don’t want to overplay what we do in creating pop culture, but there’s a way that stories bring people together, you know what I mean? That’s what makes us human. Storytelling is probably the most intensely human thing that we do. It’s something maybe that humans do that nobody else does.

Geeked Out Nation interviewed me about Batman, Superman, and Storm.

Massive Greg Pak interview at Newsarama’s “Writer’s Workshop”

David Pepose has conducted what may be the longest interview ever of filmmaker and comics writer Greg Pak for his “Writer’s Workshop” column at Newsarama. Here’s an excerpt:

I should say this too, all this stuff I’m saying is stuff that I know, but that I have to struggle everyday to actually implement it, you know what I mean? [Laughs.] It’s an ongoing struggle to have the discipline to make these stories work the way they really should. To cut out the stuff that doesn’t belong, and to invest the stuff that should be there with real emotional truth rather than manufactured shortcuts, and to find the most dramatically compelling fashion to tell the story rather than just the easiest way to tell the story. These are ongoing challenges that I wrestle with every single day, trying to do the best I can and trying to figure out better ways to do it.
