For three days during the first week of November, comics scholars from across the world will descend on the University of Washington for The International Comic Arts Forum, the largest gathering of its kind in North America.

Today Dunbier and more than three dozen comic book writers and artists announced the launch of the new project, Comics for Ukraine: Sunflower Seeds, a 96-page full color collection of new stories and art, available to supporters of a crowdfunding campaign going live today on the Zoop platform.
He said the inspiration for the title came from a video captured in the early days of the war, when a Ukranian woman offered sunflower seeds (the national flower of Ukraine) to a Russian solder to put in his pocket, explaining that when he died, at least something good would grow from it. His vision helped bring in the wide slate of contributors from different corners of the comics industry.
For fans unfamiliar with the history of Russian comics, what are your earliest memory of Russian comics? Can you give readers an idea of the history of Russian comics before BUBBLE started?
Actor Nicolas Cage said it was \"divine providence\" that his stolen vintage comic book was found 11 years later in a storage unit in Southern California. This wasn't just any comic book. It is the first Superman comic, titled \"Action Comics No. 1,\" worth about $1 million.
\"It's the most important and valuable comic book,\" said Stephen Fishler, who sold the comic book to the actor in 1995. \"Before this book was published, there was no such thing as a super hero. It really created the comic industry.\"
\"It's worth considerably more than it was then,\" said Fishler, who owns ComicConnect.com, the world's largest retailer of comics. In March 2010, he said his company broke the record for the most expensive comic book for another copy of \"Action One\" for $1.5 million. In February 2010, he said his company sold another copy for $1 million. While there are about 100 in existence, only six of those comic books are in similar preserved condition, he said.
Mark Balelo, a collectibles expert in Simi Valley, Calif., was contacted by a man who said he found what was later discovered to be actor's comic book in a storage locker in San Fernando Valley. The man, who does not wish to be identified according to Detective Hrycyk, bought the locker's contents through American Auctioneers, a company based in Riverside, Calif. Elisabeth Metzidis, controller for Balelo Inc. confirmed that the man who found the comic book asked Balelo to sell it.
