“Hip-Hop And Comics: Cultures Combining” panel presentation at WonderCon Anaheim, March 30th, 7pm.

Depth Of Field Magazine brings together renowned comic creators and Hip-Hop luminaries to discuss ties between the two forms, upcoming projects, and shared inspirations

On Saturday, March 30th, from 7:00-8:00pm, Depth Of Field Magazine is proud to present Hip-Hop And Comics: Cultures Combining, a panel discussion at Southern California’s premier entertainment gathering, WonderCon Anaheim.  Comic books and Hip-Hop grew from modest origins to achieve global impact, and in the process, they have crossed over in innumerable ways – this panel will showcase new and upcoming projects from comic creators and Hip-Hop legends, shed light on the ways Hip-Hop and comics have influenced and inspired each other, and give a historical perspective on the combinations of two cultures through discussion with musical innovators, artistic legends, and cutting-edge creators.  This program follows Depth Of Field’s standing-room-only Hip-Hop/Comics panel at last year’s New York Comic Con, which received widespread acclaim from attendees, panelists, and press.

Patrick Reed (editor of Depth Of Field Magazine) will moderate, and the panelists comprise many of the most influential creators in their respective fields, including:

Dan The Automator (Producer/composer/remixer: Pillowfight, Deltron 3030, Handsome Boy Modeling School, Dr. Octagon, Gorillaz, Lovage)

Chali 2na (MC/rapper: Jurassic 5)

Kutmasta Kurt (DJ/producer/remixer: Kool Keith, Masters Of Illusion, Dilated Peoples, Beastie Boys)

James Reitano (Cartoonist/designer/illustrator/animator: Madvillainy, Nineteen Eighty-Five, Santa Cruz Skateboards, Wu-Tang Clan)

Toni Isabella (General manager: Bulk Recordings, Delton 3030, Pillowfight)

Kenny Keil (Cartoonist/artist: Rhyme Travelers, Ferrari Boyz, Mad Magazine)

The panel runs one hour, and will take place in room 210A of the Anaheim Convention Center.  Wonder Con Anaheim 2013 takes place from March 29-31; further information can be found here.
