DISPLAY AND SELL YOUR ART AT ROCHESTER'S NEWEST GALLERY, CURATED BY JETPACK COMICS

INTERESTED in hanging your art at the Rochester Performance and Art Center Gallery? 

We've got the forms for you to fill out now!
Space is filling up fast.  If you would like to be a part of it PLEASE email us for the forms today.  The window for submissions closes soon.

 

The Rochester Performance and Art Center needs your best works!

Jetpack Comics is the official sponsor of the Rochester Performance & Arts Center (RPAC) Art Gallery & Welcome Center, and we get to curate the gallery!  Located right across the street from Jetpack, we're reaching out to all of our artistic friends.  That's where you come in.

They've got thousands of linear feet of space we need to fill with framed art, and we want you!  It's simple (kind of).

The Theme is FRIENDS OF THE ARTS (it should be Jetpack's Friends of the Arts) so it's wide open to whatever you have, that you'd like to display with us. The requirements are simple.  The art must be all ages appropriate & must be framed and ready to hang, if appropriate for the piece.  Sculptures would need to be presented with a pedestal.  Larger pieces can be accommodated on the floor but you should provide something to set it on.

That's it.  You can submit as many pieces as you would like, for consideration.  Just email the images of what you'd like to display and we'll let you know what we can accept.

Email Us

 

We'll let you know, you get it to us and we hang it!

As with many galleries you can make your art available for sale and we'll even have some space for you to sell prints, and the like. 
Be sure you have some type of signage that includes the title of the piece, your name and contact info as well as your asking price.

We will fill the gallery from front to back as the work comes in, so the sooner we hear from you, the sooner you can have your work hung.

There will be a soft grand opening that you'll be invited to attend (aprx 7/20) followed by a Grand Opening and Art Auction you can be a part of in early September.

That's it!  The non-profit venue gets a 30% commission for any sales.  You can take your art back whenever you want or leave it to be part of the auction - more of that to come.

Feel free to share this with any of your artist friends.  The sooner we hear from you the sooner your work gets displayed

Comic Review: Dark Days: The Casting #1

 

0qj7k1c13cqyDark Days: The Casting #1 (DC Comics)

Dark Days: The Forge brought up a whole lot of questions for the upcoming Metal event from DC. From showing a new back-story for Hawkman, to revealing that Batman has one of the “tuning forks” the Monitor used to try and reconcile the multiple universes in Crisis on the Infinite Earths, The Forge had a lot of crazy reveals, but not a lot of context for them. With The Casting, it falls on Scott Snyder, James Tynion IV, and their trio of artists (Jim Lee, John Romita Jr, and Andy Kubert) to maybe, just maybe start making some connections to the upcoming Metal event.

Now, there are some revelations in The Casting, but not so many that you won’t feel the need to read Metal next month. Picking up right from the end of The Forge, this issue finds Batman continuing his search for the mysterious metal that he’s found inside of different weapons and metahumans in the DC universe. At the same time, Green Lantern and Duke Thomas (no, he still doesn’t have a codename), are attempting to figure out why the Joker is locked away in the Batcave. As Joker taunts them with clues to the mysteries around them, he begins attacking the device that Batman has been working on to help him figure out the origins of this metal. Of course, Batman arrives in the knick of time and takes out the Joker, and gets Green Lantern and Duke to help him start up the machine again. But nothing happens…..or does it?

More so than The Forge, The Casting goes to great lengths to offer some back-story for the upcoming Metal event. Scott Snyder and James Tynion IV offer some pretty wild revelations for the history of the DC universe, and for the most part, their reveals make a lot of sense and are pretty cool. The two work extremely well together, and offer a very solid lead in for the upcoming event, which seems to be an almost Lovecraftian take on the DC universe (which I am VERY into).

On the art side of things, we have the same three artists as the ones that worked on The Forge. Now usually three artists on a single book would be a cause for alarm, but when those three artists are Jim Lee, Andy Kubert, and John Romita Jr, it’s not that big of a deal. Or at least it shouldn’t be. While none of these artists are bad in The Casting, the fact you get them for only a handful of pages at a time really hurts the narrative of this issue. Once you get used to Jim Lee’s style, you then immediately jump over to John Romita, Jr’s, sometimes within the same scene. While it’s admirable of DC to try and make this issue work with three of their most in demand artists, it’s just too jarring to really get into. A better result would’ve been splitting the issue into “acts” and giving each artist one of them.

Despite the weird art decision, The Casting is still worth your time, and if you are planning on picking up Metal next month, I’d argue that it’s necessary. While Snyder is great at setting up new storylines for readers, I doubt he’ll have time to get into the back-story of the Nth metal in the event like he has with these two specials, so if you want to know the most you can before the event, you should definitely pick this up.

Comic Review: Spider-Men II #1

Spider-Man II #1 (Marvel Comics)  Spider-Men_II_1_Cover

Years ago, Spider-Men hit and brought Peter Parker and Miles Morales together. It was pretty big deal; especially since Marvel previously made it well known that the regular Marvel universe and the Ultimate Universe were never, ever, going to cross over. But, now that the Ultimate universe is no more and Miles Morales is living in the “regular” Marvel universe post Secret Wars, the release of Spider-Men II, again written by Brian Michael Bendis and drawn by Sarah Pichelli, is in a weird spot. Can you make this series work now that we have Peter and Miles teaming up more often in the regular Marvel universe?

Yes and no. As much fun as it is to see Peter and Miles hanging out together and fighting crime, the magic is a little lost now that both characters are in the same universe. Bendis’ script has fun mocking this point a little bit, but it just reminds you that Marvel hasn’t really explained how Miles made his way into the main Marvel universe in a clear way.  That being said, the main point of Spider-Men II isn’t why Miles is in the same universe as Peter, it’s about the mystery of the OTHER Miles Morales who existed in the 616 universe before Secret Wars smashed all the universes together. And even in that regard, we don’t get a lot of forward momentum. This issue is strictly an opening issue for the miniseries that sets up the adventure for our two Spideys.

Now usually I’d be a little ticked off over something like this, but I have to admit, there’s a certain charm to the way Bendis has Peter and Miles bounce off one another. While it’s frustrating to find this issue only barely start to get to the main plot (Peter and Miles come across a weird portal like the one from the original Spider-Men, and a weird looking Taskmaster comes out), the real strength of this issue is Bendis’ dialogue for both characters. It’s pretty damn wonderful, and makes up for the slow moving plot of this issue.

Also making up for the plot is Sara Pichelli’s art, which I’ve sorely missed on Miles’ Spider-Man series. There’s plenty to like in this issue for fans of Pichelli: from an awesome battle between Peter Parker and the Armadillo to hilarious scenes with Miles and Ganke at school, Pichelli once again proves that she’s one of the best artists in Marvel’s stable with Spider-Men II. Hopefully she’s finished enough of the book to prevent any major delays, but at the same time, I also hope she doesn’t get to the point where she has to rush.

While Spider-Men II isn’t quite as compelling as the original, there’s still a lot to enjoy with this opening issue. It also helps that this issue can be read without any knowledge of any of Peter or Miles’ adventures, or reading the previous Spider-Men miniseries at all, which his a pretty rare feat for any comic. What it may not have in plot, Spider-Men II makes up for it with characterization and charm, which is fine enough by me for this issue.

“An Embarrassment of Nerd Riches”

We are in a golden age of comic book movies. Sure, that’s not a huge statement to make, since Marvel Studios and other production companies have been pumping out movies for ten plus years now. But has there ever been a wide variety of GOOD comic book movies like we’ve had in 2017? Starting with Logan in March, every single comic book film released so far this year has been a hit both commercially and critically. But it’s not just the box office that’s making me think back and write this column. No, it’s what these films are saying that makes them so important. 

Logan, for all of its bleakness, is about heroism and sacrifice for a greater cause.  It showcases the power that superheroes and comics have on young and even adult audiences, and not only that, it’s so well made that I actually think it could snag some nominations come award season time.  Lego Batman and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 are about embracing friends and family when you need help. Wonder Woman was the inspirational film that DC and Warner Bros (and the world) desperately needed. And Spider-Man Homecoming was a loving homage to John Hughes coming of age films that gave Spider-Man fans the movie they’ve been waiting for for years.

Could any of these films be made prior to this year? Probably, but many of them, Logan especially, benefited from the fact that we’ve had an influx of superhero films to build off of. One of the reasons why Homecoming works so well is that it’s set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and audiences have been watching these films for so long that the studios no longer need to explain much in the universe. Same goes for the outlandish space saga of Guardians of the Galaxy’s second movie. Now that audiences have bought into the idea of a talking tree and raccoon, we can move on to bigger, better, and more varied adventures 

There’s always going to be a few people who will try to say that “every comic book movie is the same”.  But those people clearly haven’t been paying attention to the movies that came out this year. Comparing Logan and Spider-Man Homecoming would be like comparing Peanut Butter Cups and Crunch Bars. Sure, they both have chocolate, but the insides are completely different. The ignorance to just dismiss this genre as “just for kids and mainstream” couldn’t be further from the truth, and hopefully we’re finally getting to the point where we no longer need to have these discussions. While we’ve still got Thor: Ragnarok and Justice League coming out, even if those two films under perform, 2017 will go down as the year that comic book movies became a real genre, and not just copies of the same two types of movies.
