Comic Book Attorney and Author Gamal Hennessy to Speak At Four Upcoming Industry Events
New York, NY July 2nd, 2019 – Creative Contract Consulting announced four upcoming comic book panels and speaking engagements for attorney and author Gamal Hennessy. The educational panels and seminars will be followed by the publication of his new book in 2020.
The first two of the panel discussions are designed to help attorneys represent comic book professionals.
The final two panels will focus on educating comic book creators on the business and legal aspects of their industry.
Mr. Hennessy’s participation in these events occurred because of anticipation for his upcoming book The Business of Independent Comic Book Publishing. The book is the result of five years of research and twenty years of experience in the comic book industry, and it comes at a pivotal point for the business as a whole.
“Comic book properties are some of the most popular and profitable forms of entertainment now, so the need for artists and writers to understand the business of comics couldn’t be greater.” Mr. Hennessy said.
“Attorneys can also benefit from an understanding of the business of comic publishing, in addition to their current potential in other media. Comic book law has its foundations in entertainment, publishing, and intellectual property law, but it is a unique industry that requires a unique perspective.”
