Star Clipper presents Virgin Comics Artshow!
A multi-media event featuring original comic art + an exclusive film screening!
July 6th-August 3rd 2007

Based in Bangalore, India, Virgin Comics and Virgin Animation is the creative collaboration of writer Deepak Chopra, filmmaker Shekhar Kapur, and maverick Sir Richard Branson.

Similar to the success of Japanese anime and manga, their mission is to define a new wave of Indian character entertainment by permeating this style and vision to audiences from Boston to Beijing to Bangalore. Their studio of artists and writers are generating a creative renaissance in India-leading the country's transition from outsourcer to a source of innovative and dynamic creations and creators. Utilizing the powerful and bold Virgin brand, these masterminds have sparked a radical transition in the comic industry with the introduction of three distinctive comic series: The Shakti line of comics collects stories based on ancient Indian mythologies re-imagined for a global audience; the Director's Cut matches iconic filmmakers with the best comic writers, including Guy Ritchie + Andy Diggle and John Woo + Garth Ennis; and lastly, the Virgin Voices imprint, which features comics created by artists with a background in different media such as Dave Stewart and Nicolas Cage.

 

Join us for this exclusive Midwest viewing of their dynamic artwork and a trailer screening for their upcoming teenage horror film! Here's a preview look at some of the art appearing at the art show; look below for further details.
