Not only the “Big Dipper” (Reading)9. February 2024
Whether it’s Hogwarts, the United Federation of Planets or Duckburg – we all love the exciting fictional worlds from films, novels and television. But what is it like to be an author who gets to write for these worlds, develop new material and depict new adventures
FedCon veteran Christian Humberg has been doing just that for almost two decades! The author and scenarist writes novels and comics for Hollywood and, together with Bernd Perplies, has published the first official Trek novels from a German pen with “Star Trek: Prometheus”. His new comics for “Wickie und die starken Männer”, “Playmobil”, “Drachenzähmen leicht gemacht” and “Hotel Transsilvanien” are published throughout Europe, and his novels for German cult brands such as “Geisterjäger John Sinclair” and “Perry Rhodan Neo” have been nominated for awards.
In this entertaining and informative lecture, the creative talks about his work for franchises and licences and gives valuable tips for up-and-coming authors.
