The Frank Thorne Memorial Panel
Come and celebrate the life and art of one of the Silver and Bronze Age’s finest artists who was one of the primary advocates of erotic comic book storytelling: Frank Thorne. The panel, moderated by publisher Daniel Herman (Silver Age the Second Generation of Comic Book Artists), will feature Brian Peck (Frank Thorne’s Ghita an Erotic Treasury, Volumes 1 and 2), who will talk about Thorne’s work as well as his wit and humor; Howard Davis (Frank Thorne’s Battling Beauties) who will reminisce about his over fifty-year relationship with Thorne; Gary Groth (president, Fantagraphics) who will talk about Thorne’s career from his perspective of having published numerous stories by the artist as well as having conducted an extensive interview with him in The Comics Journal; and Zaddick Longenbach (Thorne’s art dealer) who will speak about his many years representing the artist’s work. The panel will feature a brief video biography created exclusively for the panel featuring numerous examples of original artwork.
