Stan Sakai, the acclaimed cartoonist and creator of Usagi Yojimbo, is the recipient of the inaugural Joe Kubert Distinguished Storyteller Award. The announcement was made on Saturday May 19 at a ceremony at the second annual Comic Con Revolution in Ontario, CA. The Joe Kubert Distinguished Storyteller Award is designed to recognize outstanding comic book creators who exemplify both Joe Kuberts artistic talent and his commitment to nurturing the comic book community.

Alongside industry award icons Eisner and Kurtzman, we now have the Joe Kubert Distinguished Storyteller Award brought to us by the team at Atomic Crush Events to honor my father and his legacy, said Andy Kubert. Stan Sakai has brought his own ongoing legacy to our field that will be looked upon for generations to come. He is a perfect choice for the first Joe Kubert Distinguished Storyteller Award.

I couldn't think of a better and more qualified artist to be the first recipient than Stan Sakai! said Adam Kubert. Dad would be humbled and proud!"

Although Stan Sakai was unable to attend the ceremony, a prepared statement was read on his behalf, I had been a fan of Joe Kubert from the time I discovered Sgt. Rock and Hawkman in the 60s. Enemy Ace is still a high water mark that very few have equaled and none have surpassed. I met Joe through a mutual friend, Sergio Aragones and I was privileged to speak to him many times, and each time was memorable. I admired Joes powerful art, his flawless compositions and his brilliant storytelling but, most of all, I admired his dedication to the craft of creating comic and his desire to pass on that love and knowledge to young creators with the Joe Kubert School of Cartoon and Graphic Art. It is a very great honor to receive this inaugural Joe Kubert Distinguished Storyteller Award at Comic Con Revolution Ontario.

Sakai began his career by simply lettering comic books as he perfected his art and began working in the industry. He also wrote and illustrated The Adventures of Nilson Groundthumper and Hermy; a comic series with a medieval setting, influenced by Sergio Aragones's Groo the Wanderer. The characters first appeared in Albedo #1 in 1984, and were subsequently featured in issues of Critters, GrimJack, Amazing Heroes and Furrlough. Stan Sakai became famous with the creation of Usagi Yojimbo, the epic saga of Miyamoto Usagi, a samurai rabbit living in late-sixteenth and early-seventeenth-century Japan. Usagi Yojimbo, first published in 1984, continues to this day. In 2013, Sakai illustrated the limited comic book series 47 Ronin, an adaptation of the famed story of the 47 Ronin written by Dark Horse Comics Publisher Mike Richardson, with Lone Wolf and Cub writer Kazuo Koike as an editorial consultant.

I can't think of a better way to honor the legacy of Joe Kubert than by the three-pronged project we've undertaken with the Kubert School, said Comic Con Revolution Co-Founder Mike Scigliano. In addition to the Joe Kubert Distinguished Storyteller Award, the Joe Kubert Future Storyteller Scholarship is being established by Atomic Crush Events for first and second year students of The Kubert School, while the Joe Kubert Jumpstart Project will help graduates begin their career. The recipient of the Joe Kubert Jumpstart Project will be named by the school at this years graduation and the Joe Kubert Future Storyteller Scholarship will go into effect next year, allowing students to apply for the scholarship Supporting the next generation of talent with the Joe Kubert Future Storyteller Scholarship and and the Joe Kubert Jumpstart Project is a key part of our efforts and will really make a difference for the next generation of comic book creators. To able to recognize Joe Kubert's legacy and contributions to the comic book industry both directly with his work and indirectly with The Kubert School is exciting.

Atomic Crush Events (ACE) is pleased to announce the return of Comic Con Revolution (CCR) to Ontario, California. The second annual comic con will be twice as large as year one.

CCR will be held on May 19 & 20, 2018 at the Ontario Convention Center and will feature two full days of programming.

The initial guest list boasts some of the most incredible talent in the industry including Jason Aaron (X-Men, Star Wars), Sandy King Carpenter (Film Producer & Comic Writer), Ming Chen (AMCs Comic Book Men), Dustin Nguyen (Descender), Stan Sakai (Usagi Yojimbo), Cat Staggs (Wonder Woman) and Timothy Zahn (Star Wars Novelist). Many more additional announcements will be made before Comic Con Revolution opens its doors for year two.

"We've been hard at work reaching out to exciting and talented creators over the last few months," commented ACE Co-Founder Mike Scigliano. "As each one confirms their participation the first thing we think about is how our attendees will react to the news."

Not satisfied with just growing exhibit hall and the guest list, Comic Con Revolution will now play host to two days of programming full of panels and events for the entire family. They'll also be producing the second annual Cosplay Revolution Costume Contest hosted by Ming Chen with the winners receiving one of the most unique awards ever. The ultimate goal is to create a full weekend experience.

"We were overwhelmed with the support and love that Ontario and the entire Inland Empire showed Comic Con Revolution last May," said ACE Co-Founder Drew Seldin. "It's driven us to produce a bigger and better experience for 2018. "

When we decided to do our first convention as Atomic Crush Events and to debut Comic Con Revolution in Ontario we hoped the fans would enjoy it. Never in our wildest dreams did we expect to be embraced by the community the way we were - attendees, exhibitors & guests alike. We are humbled by your support and by all the smiling faces we saw last Saturday. We look forward to the day we can be 909 again, even if only for the weekend.

So mark your calendars, tell your friends and start preparing for May 19 & 20, 2018 when Comic Con Revolution returns!

Thank you,

Gabe, Drew, James, Mike & the rest of the CCR Team!

May the Force be with you! Today is International Star Wars Day! The day Star Wars devotees around the world celebrate 40 years of fandom! Just like them, we are HUGE fans and we've got some great Star Wars fun in store for you when Comic Con Revolution invades the Inland Empire - May 13th.

The Revolution needed the help of the Jedi so we reached out to the Saber Guild Outer Rim Temple and they heeded our call. Appearing in Booth 648 the Saber Guild Outer Rim Temple is part of the Saber Guild, a not-for-profit Star Wars fan costuming club that does choreographed lightsaber combat shows for charity and the community. They serve southern California's Inland Empire and the greater areas of Los Angeles and Orange Counties.

That wasn't enough so we reached out and hired some mercs and the Mandalorian Mercs LA chapter Manda'galaar Clan was more than happy to be a part of the cause. The Mandalorian Mercs Costume Club(Booth 649) is the world's premier custom Mandalorian costume organization. With 20 chapters in 7 countries around the world, members of Mercs take part in a wide range of activities, including local and international conventions, charity events, and fan gatherings.

And because we're gonna have a bunch of Jedi and Mercs running around The 501st Inland Empire Squad will be on hand to keep everyone in line, or subjugated, depending on your feeling about the Empire. The 501st Legion(Booth 550), also known as Vader's Fist, is a worldwide Star Wars costuming organization comprised of and operated by Star Wars fans.

Star Wars & Empire Strikes Back Producer Gary Kurtz will also be joining us for a special First Look at his new project TimeWarpers at 5:30pm in Room 104B. A hybrid of live action and animation made by comic book fans for comic book fans. TimeWarpers is a team of superheroes that travel through time to correct the forgotten time-line remade by the P.U.N. (Prosperous United Nations). Using their newly discovered genetic powers they warp through time and thus the future of mankind lies in the uncertain past. Join the film's writer Craig Miller (Star Wars, Curious George, The Dark Crystal), director Max Forzan, producer Gary Kurtz (Star Wars and The Empire Strikes Back), and members of the film's cast.

And last but not least, if you're looking for Star Wars comics, merch and toys be sure to check out our dealer floor for some awesome hard to find items!
