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

Jon's Righteous Comic Reviews (or you name this column chum)
Batman #25 (DC Comics)
Tom King’s run on Batman has been pretty stellar so far. From introducing new heroes Gotham and Gotham Girl, to showcasing one of the bloodiest Batman vs. Bane fights in years, to Batman proposing to Catwoman, King has pretty much solidified his place as one of the best writers to work on the character. But with the latest arc, “The War of Jokes and Riddles”, he may have outdone himself. There’s a fair amount of hype surrounding this issue, and amazingly the Mikel Janin drawn issue exceeded my expectations. While you won’t get any definite resolution to Batman’s proposal to Catwoman at the end of the last issue, Batman #25 is still one of the best issues in King’s run.
Taking place just a year after Batman’s first appearance in Gotham, Batman #25 finds the Joker in an interesting spot. After a string of bizarre crimes at comedy clubs, movie theaters showing comedy film, and other events that showcase laughter, the police are stuck as to what exactly the Joker wants. Since they’ve had Edward Nigma in custody for the past year, they decide to use his puzzle expertise to help them figure what Joker wants. Nigma of course solves the mystery, but decides to finally spring himself out of the CGPD and head to the Joker himself. Once he meets up with Joker, he explains that Batman has become too predictable, and it’s taken the fun out of the crimes Joker pulls. And since Joker would rather kill Riddler before Riddler kills Batman (and vice versa), Riddler proposes a plan: the two of them should join forces to take down Batman once and for all. Of course, this goes about as well as any other team up with the Joker would, and the titular war begins.
Tom King’s script is squarely focused on Joker and Riddler, and that’s probably a good reason for why this issue works as well as it does. Batman may be our narrator (talking with Catwoman), but we don’t see him for much of the issue. Instead, his narration serves as a great showcase for how much not only he has changed Gotham by becoming the Batman, but also how his villains will forever cast a shadow over the city and its citizens. King does an incredible job of getting inside of these two villains’ heads without overloading us with so much that it ruins their mystique. Not only that, but seeing King play in the “Year One” era of the Batman is simply a lot of fun. It frees Joker and Riddler up from the current continuity in a way that’s very refreshing.
Mikel Janin handled the art duties for the “I Am Suicide” arc of Batman, and while he did a good job on that storyline, he knocks this issue out of the park. His Joker and Riddler are fantastically portrayed, and Janin is able to present both with a larger than life but also down to Earth feel that immediately pulls you into the comic. His art is rendered so well that it’s hard not to think of books like Gotham Central or imagining this as the basis for a solo Batman movie or miniseries event on HBO.
Batman #25 isn’t just another strong issue of Tom King’s run on the character; it might also be the best. It’s certainly my personal favorite, simply because of this stellar premise and execution. The central mystery of what Batman had to do in this war is really interesting, and it’s easy to believe that when all is said and done we may have the next great Batman story.
Shirtless Bear Fighter #1 (Image Comics)
Sometimes you just need a dumb comic book, and Shirtless Bear Fighter is exactly that kind of book. It’s about a guy who’s called “Shirtless Bear Fighter” who fights bears. That’s it. And that’s pretty much all you need. That’s not to say that Shirtless Bear Fighter is bad by any means. The new Image series from Jody LeHeup, Sebastian Girner, and artist Nil Vendrell is the perfect kind of stupid fun that lovingly plays up ideas of masculinity, 80’s action movies, and, well, bears.
LeHeup and Girner’s script is brimming with nods to famous action movies. Hell, you can practically guess where the story is going to go by page 3. But their script is such a loving nod to these over the top stories that it makes for a completely entertaining ride. SBF’s love of flapjacks, beards, and nudity is hilarious, and makes this character instantly entertaining.
Adding to that entertainment is Nil Vendrell’s art, which is brimming with style and character all its own. From the hilarious expressions on the bear’s faces after they get a patented “BEAR PUNCH” to the commitment to the censoring of SBL’s crotch in his many nude scenes, Vendrell’s art is just as integral to the delivery of this book as the script.
Shirtless Bear Fighter is a hilarious comic, and it’s easily one of the most wild and original books I’ve read all year. This is the kind of book that Image excels at. It’s brimming with charm and an off-kilter vibe, and it’s completely hilarious as well. I can’t recommend it enough.
THE WAUGH BAG REPORT
Volume 6, Issue 24!
“Does Whatever A Spin-Off Can?”
It’s widely been known that I have some….misgivings about Sony’s plan to do a bunch of Spider-Man spin-off films without the Wall Crawler. I was about to go on another rant about how idiotic it is to have Venom movie without Spider-Man, or how you could barely get anyone to care about Black Cat or Silver Sable without introducing them in a Spider-Man movie first, but it appears that I may not have to do that.
Why? Because according to a new interview conducted this weekend with Venom producer Amy Pascal and Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige, it was revealed that the villain spin off starring Tom Hardy will in fact take place in the same universe as Tom Holland’s Marvel Studios approved Spider-Man.
Now this should be cause for celebration, right? This is exactly what I’ve wanted since Sony first announced the Venom movie. But something doesn’t seem right about this announcement. For starters, Pascal doesn’t sound very confident in what she’s saying. In fact, it almost reads like she’s just making this up off the spot. It’s not much of a stretch to think that she’s heard some of the negative buzz on the internet around the plans for the movie, and is trying her best to turn the tide. We live in a world where the internet and fan reactions can cut a big tent pole movie off at the knees. Just look at Batman V Superman, The Mummy, and even Sony’s own Amazing Spider-Man 2. These are all films that had major franchise plans set up, and had to make pretty major changes thanks to online fan reactions. Do you really think Sony would want to go through all of that again, especially now that they’re working with Marvel on Spider-Man: Homecoming?
Speaking of Marvel, the other interesting aspect of Pascal’s reveal is that it looks like this is the first that Kevin Feige has heard of it. His silence and polite smile implies to me that he wasn’t aware of this before the interview (which is believable since a week ago he said that there are “no plans for an R Rated Marvel Studios film at the moment”, and Venom will definitely be rated R). In fact, it looks like Feige and Pascal will definitely be having a few more talks as the press machine gets going for Homecoming. I’d imagine that Feige wants to keep everyone on the same page at both Marvel Studios and Sony, since constantly giving out different information just looks like you’re making stuff up as you go, which isn’t part of Marvel Studios’ MO at all.
So while it’s cool at first that Venom will allegedly be a part of the Tom Holland Spider-Man universe, and tangentially part of the MCU, it’s also worrisome. I suppose the worst case scenario is Spider-Man popping up in an end-credit scene, and these spin off movies being like the Marvel Netflix shows, where they reference major events in the MCU but don’t interact with Iron Man and Thor. But at the same time, I still worry that Sony is just trying to have their cake and eat it too, and are so worried about making even more money that they aren’t stopping to not only make sure their plan makes sense, but also checking to see if they’re pissing off Feige and Marvel Studios. By doing this, they may just ruin their partnership before it really gets to get off the ground.
