EVENT: Warren Ellis to Speak at The Farmhouse in Hollywood

Warren EllisHow does listening to Warren Ellis speak under an avocado tree in Hollywood sound to you?

Transmetropolitan, Red, and Iron Man fans in the greater Los Angeles area have the chance to witness this come Sunday, January 26 from 6pm to 9pm. Tickets range between $20-$50, which includes some light drinks and snacks - not a bad deal at all! The British author is expected to "tell stories about the world we live in now (and where we’re going in the future)." Get tickets soon, as the event is fairly intimate, capping at around 40 people.

In addition to penning the aforementioned comics, Ellis has written for Vice, Wired UK, and Reuters.

Comic Con International 2011: Traffic Update

Los Angeles Traffic"If I can just get off of that L.A. freeway without getting killed or caught…"
Jerry Jeff Walker, L.A. Freeway

So it's probably safe to say that the city of Los Angeles might be kinda bummed that they didn't succeed in luring Comic Con International away from San Diego.

But do they hold a grudge?

Oh, I think so. I can't prove it of course, but this being the internets means I don't have to.

Comic Book Jobs: Online Comics

Posted by Tom Mason Categories: Editorials,

Steve Jobs & iPadWorkbridge, a job recruiting organization, has the details for a job on Los Angeles' west side: an unnamed arts/entertainment/media company is looking for Front End Developer.

If you're familiar with West L.A. you might think that phrase has something to do with plastic surgery. Well, it doesn't.

This unnamed company specializes in online comics and ebooks.

The annual salary range is $25,000-$50,000, and I assume that's based on your experience, especially with AJAX, Javascript and Flash.

And if you have design experience that's a plus. So is experience with Python or other Back End technologies, and that's not a plastic surgeon's phrase either.

Good luck, job seekers!
