Iron Man by Walt SimonsonNope, that’s not the title of a great lost 1980s private eye TV series.

It’s part of a new thing that my pal Danny Fingeroth has organized with the Society of Illustrators called Comics Out Loud.

Here’s the skinny straight from Danny: “Top comic book creators - one from each discipline of the medium - demonstrating and discussing their work processes as attendees circulate around the room and watch the process of ‘sequential art’ (as the great Will Eisner dubbed it) being made.”

So what does that really mean? It means you get to watch (and interact) as Louise Simonson writes, Walt Simonson pencils, Bob Wiacek inks, Chris Sotomayor colors and John Workman letters, each working on a current assignment.

Best: “Event organizer, and longtime comics editor, Danny Fingeroth, will be on hand to discuss and demonstrate the role of the editor in the comic book making process.”

If you have any interest in seeing how comics are made, talking to some of the people who actually make them, and seeing that creative process at work, this would be a must-attend event.

The event is held January 28 from 1-5pm at The Society Of Illustrators, 128 East 63rd Street (between Park and Lexington Avenues) in beautiful Manhattan. Lots of good restaurants in the area to hit after the event is over, too.
