Meet the Theme Night Artists

Comic-Con: The Cruise is thrilled to announce its partnership with renowned PaperFilms artists Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti for the creation of original artwork for the upcoming 2025 cruise theme nights. Amanda and Jimmy are the creative minds behind “Comic-Con: The Cruise Celebrates Sci-Fi” and “The Sci-Fi Adventures of Nautalie.” 

Amanda created the original character of Nautalie, who will serve as the emblem of the Sci-Fi night festivities. Together, Amanda and Jimmy will continue to craft artwork for the three remaining theme nights, each piece infused with their signature style while featuring unique characters tailored to the theme of the night.

Comic-Con: The Cruise is excited to continue with PaperFilms artists Amanda and Jimmy and can’t wait to witness their creations yet to come.
