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)
Winnebago Graveyard #1 (Image Comics)
Steve Niles has been making a name for himself as the "creepy comics creator” for quite a while now. As the creator of 30 Days of Night and Criminal Macabre, he’s pretty much one of the go to guys when you want a comic book to scare the crap out of you. After dealing with Vampires and other monsters, he’s turning his attention to Satanic Cults with Winnebago Graveyard, a comic that sounds goofy, but is anything but.
The main plot for this opening issue focuses on a family on a road trip that stops at a weird carnival in the middle of nowhere. If you’ve seen enough horror movies than you know what to expect next, but Steve Niles’ script does a fantastic job of really building tension and mood. This isn’t the bloody horror Niles that wrote 30 Days of Night, this is a Steve Niles that is really working to get under your skin and leave a lasting impression. There’s real sense of foreboding doom sitting just underneath the plot, and the fact that we know what’s coming only adds to the fear that we feel for this family.
Also adding to that fear is Allison Sampson’s art, which does wonders at creeping you out. Sampson is able to convey both truly unsettling images and really genuine family moments easily. Winnebago Graveyard is probably the only comic out that features both a human sacrifice and a step dad trying to reach his stepson, and Sampson is able to give both aspects of this story the care and attention that they need. Sampson also does a tremendous job of playing up the creep factor of the Carnival, especially when the sun goes down and the family’s Winnebago goes missing.
If there’s one thing about Winnebago Graveyard that’s a negative, it’s that it’s over way too soon. Just as I was really settling in to the creepiness of the story, it was over. But Niles and Sampson have really created something intriguing here. Growing up in a pretty secluded area of New Hampshire, I see a lot of similarities with Niles’ fear of abandoned places that are just off the main roads, and the tension in this opening issue alone guarantees I’ll be back for more.
Kill the Minotaur #1 (Image Comics)
The Greek myths have always been used to inspire many of our modern heroes and stories, but there’s been a lack of Greek Mythology tales in comics. Whether it’s because there’s no market for them or because they are so widely known, there’s definitely a major hole on the comic shelves when it comes to sweeping mythical epics. However, Kill The Minotaur by Chris Pasetto, Christian Cantamessa, and Lukas Ketner could be just the thing to usher in a new batch of Greek stories in comics.
As you can probably guess from the title, Kill The Minotaur is a new telling of the story of Theseus and the Minotaur. It’s not exactly new ground for anyone who took Latin in high school, but the real draw here is Pasetto and Cantamessa’s take on the story, and the character of Theseus. Both writers do a fantastic job of getting us into the mindset of Theseus, who in this story is brash and unaware of why his subjects would ever hate him and his family. When he’s told of a way to stop King Minos from abducting more of his people for his mysterious sacrifices, Theseus jumps at the chance to help his people. But of course, it doesn’t go exactly as planned.
Even if the script wasn’t compelling, the art from Lukas Ketner would make Minotaur a must buy. Though we don’t see the mighty creature in this issue, judging by Ketner’s art in this opening issue we’re going to be in for a real treat when we finally do. Ketner is able to fill Minotaur with so much excitement that even the panels where characters are just talking and planning seem alive with motion. I can’t wait to see what he does next.
It’s safe to say that Kill The Minotaur is one of the best debut issues of the year. It may be covering well tread ground, but this book is very much worth your time. There’s plenty of interesting ideas to be mined from this story, and it’ll be really interesting to see what these creators do next. Here’s hoping they plan to take on some other Greek myths when this is wrapped up.
THE WAUGH BAG REPORT
Volume 6, Issue 24!
“Remembering Adam West”
Adam West is gone.
Like a lot of people, my first exposure to Adam West, and to the Batman, was from the famous Bill Dozier Batman series. Those reruns that aired at 7pm every night on UPN were the highlights of my day. Watching the series with my dad was a nightly ritual, and the cliffhanger episodes were torture for my small four year old mind. The feature film that was made in between the first and second season was a movie I rented so often that my parents eventually broke down and bought me a copy, which I then watched so much that they had to buy ANOTHER copy. I was enthralled with Batman at an early age, and it was all thanks to Adam West’s gloriously earnest and eager take on the Caped Crusader.
It wasn’t until years later that I got the chance to see Mr. West and thank him in person. It was 2011 and I was heading to Wizard World Boston for Jetpack Comics. This being my first major convention for the store, I was pretty psyched to check out the guests that were going to be there (if I’m being honest, I was probably too psyched to work the booth). Knowing that Adam West and Burt Ward were there as one of the guests only added to that excitement, mainly because I had a special gift idea in mind. With the help of my mom, I was able to grab an old Batman book that detailed every episode of the original show, and was planning on getting West’s autograph for my Dad as a birthday gift. The ultimate plan! Not only would I get to meet Adam West (and have bragging rights over my dad), but I’d be able to surprise my dad with a gift that would remind him not only of the two of us watching the show together, but also him watching the show as a kid when it was first on (pretty brilliant on my part if I say so myself).
After waiting for about 90 minutes, Mr. West came out, and I got my chance. I’d like to say that I was extremely cool and chatted him up with ease. But of course, that’s not the case. After a few moments, I was able to stammer up some words, and tell him, “you know, one of the reasons why I’m such a big Batman fan was because I used to watch the old show with dad as a kid. This book is his, and if you could sign it to him, it would be a great birthday present for him”.
As he took the book from my hand, he paused, looked right at me with a cocked an eyebrow, and with that classic West inflection said “...”old show”?” Of course I was mortified, thinking I had just royally pissed of Adam West, but before I could explain he winked at me, gave me a fist bump, and said “thank you”.
That to me was Adam West. He would joke around with you, and take some small (real or not) offense to any joke made towards Batman, but he was always in on the joke. That’s what makes his Batman so great. He played it completely straight but with a small wink to let you know “I realize how ridiculous this is, but just go with it”. That show lived and died based on who was underneath that mask, and if it was anyone other than Adam West, it wouldn’t have had the impact that it had today.
And what an impact it was. Yeah, we all groan whenever we see a newspaper article with “Bam! Pow!” in it, but let’s face it, what other comic book based property had the reach of the Bill Dozier Batman series? Long before we had the Marvel Cinematic Universe or the Nolan Dark Knight Trilogy, the Adam West series was THE bridge for the mainstream and comics. For many, Adam West IS Batman, plain and simple. And while he may have resented the role for a few years after he finished it, in the last three decades he became a beacon of positivity and an ambassador for comics and nerd culture second only to Stan Lee. There’s no other way around it.
While a lot of Batman actors and properties focus on the ’Dark Knight” aspect of the character, there’s only one that I think best personifies the lighter”Caped Crusader” aspect. Adam West may not have been your favorite Batman, but he was definitely your first.
Rest in Peace, Mr. West. Thank you.
