    David does these dinners — he was an editor at Disney for their old in house comics back in the day.

    Comics industry dinner returns this Thursday!

    WHEN: Thursday, January 27, 7:00 p.m.

    WHERE: Junior's Deli, 2379 Westwood Boulevard in Westwood, near the intersection of the 10 and 405 freeways.

    WHAT we'll discuss:
    Local publishers -- Top Cow, Bongo, Tokyopop, and other comic-book and graphic-novel publishers based in southern California (including DC's move out here)

    With Disney's ownership of Marvel and Warner Bros. moving some DC Comics operations out to Burbank, is the center of comics-industry power shifting to L.A.? And if it is, what kind of creative and business opportunities is it bringing our way? A lot of us know bits and pieces of the answer to these questions, so come swap insights with colleagues for a prosperous 2011.

    About the comics dinner: Held on the last Thursday of the month, it’s for anyone who's worked in comic books or graphic novels: artists, retailers, publishers, printers, teachers, writers, librarians, editors, everyone. (No fans or wannabes, though. This is just for the industry.) There’s no formal agenda; we eat, drink, trade news and gossip, show off new work, and so on. People have built friendships and business deals after meeting at the dinners. If you’ve got announcements or questions for your colleagues, bring them. Someone’s bound to be interested.

    Let me know if you'll come. If you show up without RSVPing, we won't toss you out, but I need an idea of how many people we'll get. I'm at davidseidman@earthlink.net ...
