This is Charlton Comics

Sponsored by: Derby Public Library

Join us for a presentation by producers of the upcoming feature length documentary about Derby’s Charlton Comics entitled “Charlton Comics: The Movie”).

Keith Larson and Jackie Zbuska will discuss the production of the movie, show some footage from the film and talk about the history of Charlton and recent resurrection of the comic’s brand under the mantle of Charlton Neo Media.

Founded by John Santangelo, Sr. and Ed Levy, Division Street, Derby was home to Charlton Comics from 1945 to 1986,  controlling all areas of its publishing, from editorial to printing.  The company has become legendary in the comic industry.  Unknown to most is the long list of renowned comic book talent that once worked for Charlton, including Steve Ditko who went on to co-create Spider-Man and Dick Giordiano who became an executive at DC Comics.

All are invited to come, share their memories, and get a sneak preview of this new Derby documentary.  Registration is requested.
