4/12/07-4/19/07: Join Joanna in supporting independent film at the Phoenix Film Festival.

4/4/07: Get Joanna’s character on a stamp! Visit the Villikon Chronicles Memorabilia Marketplace to purchase stamps and other Villikon merchandise. In honor of the Villikon Chronicles: Genesis of Evil movie in which Joanna plays the Imperium Computer Authority, new products have been launched to promote the film. A word from Bryan J. Kinnaird, creator/writer/executive producer of the Villikon Chronicles:

“Characters from THE VILLIKON CHRONICLES join other popular franchise icons to become immortalized on Official United States Postage. Send or collect these commemorative tribute stamps to the popular graphic novels…

Because ZazzleStamps are real United States postage, they are subject to special Appropriate Use Guidelines. The acceptability of each design or character was reviewed for content and an inquisition was conducted…

subject of photo
status of celebrity or fame
permissible character rights
source of image
What part do you have in the Villikon Chronicles

Answers to these questions and more were heavily scrutinized. Specifically, designing, manufacturing, marketing and/or selling products that may infringe on rights, including, copyrights ( e.g., an image of a character), trademarks (e.g., the logo of a company), “rights in gross” (e.g., the exclusive right of the U.S. Olympic Committee to use the “Olympic Rings” in this case, the VC emblem), and rights of privacy and publicity ( e.g., a photo of a celebrity) are prohibited. These stamps represent characters  not real people, and several more VC characters are still pending approval. Sentinals are tough. Holding a weapon is hard to pass through. Wiccans were also special cases and the rest of the “tribe” are pending.

**I’m proud to announce that the following stamps have been inducted as postage.

VC Icon in the Dunes
Commodore of Science Simon Magnus
Commander Malcolm Vismal
2nd Commander Tabina Tanzer
Bremusa
Lykopsis
Imperium Computer Authority
High Admiral Nefarious Skryton

***Special recognition and thanks to artist Roy Young and set photographers: Thomas Skinner, Peter Salama, and Mark Greenawalt “
