Okay, so I’m going to be doing two cons in the next two weeks, which is a little staggering to think about at the moment, it’s been a while.
But the first is in my hometown and practically right around the corner, so what the hell, yeah?
I’ll be tabling at Rose City Comic Con both Saturday and Sunday. Come find me at Table G-13. I’ll have lots of books with me, though mostly stuff from the last couple of years. Feel free to message me if there’s anything from my older work you might be looking to get and I can bring it special. (Or, if it’s something like Cut My Hair, which I’m out of, I might be able to talk Oni into being sure one is there. Emphasis on might. They’re a grown woman and do what they want.)
You might also make a note that I’ll be signing at the Dark Horse booth with Joëlle Jones on Saturday from 5 to 5:50. It may be Joëlle’s only show signing, I am not sure. But Dark Horse is making special Lady Killer signature cards, so you’ll want to get in on that.
I also have two panels. The first is on Saturday:
Back to the Gutters: Let’s Talk Comics
Room: Panel Room 4
Time: 3:00PM - 3:50PM
From part of the team that brought you From the Gutters comes a new take on the comic book panel. Join comics writer and journalist Jamie S. Rich and Ryan McCluskey as they bring their unique unique wit and perspective to a live interview format. Along with their special guests, they’ll discuss the intricacies of a life in comics, both in the studio and out.
Our guests will be Tim Seeley (Revival, Grayson), Nathan Quarry (Zombie Cage Fighter, former MMA champ), Leila Del Duca (Shutter), and Jen Van Meter (The Death-Defying Dr. Mirage, Hopeless Savages.) Should be a good mix for us all to sit and chat.
Listen to Ryan McCluskey and I dish about the show on Funemployment Radio. It should be up in their archive shortly.
I’ll also be the moderator for the spotlight on Matt Wagner happening on Sunday.
Spotlight: Matt Wagner
Room: Panel Room 7
Time: 1:00PM - 1:50PM
Writer/artist Matt Wagner began his career in 1982 with the publication of his most well known character, Grendel. Since that time, in addition to his own creations, he has lent has talents to the likes of such notable characters as Batman and The Shadow, along with many others, and is currently pitting Grendel against the latter in an upcoming series co-published by Dark Horse and Dynamite Entertainment. Join us for a look back at Wagner’s storied career, as well as current and future projects.
If I have my information correct, Matt’s son Brennan, who is also his current colorist, will also be with us. Then they will sign Grendel vs. the Shadow at the Dark Horse booth after.
Speaking of Dark Horse, they are throwing the After Party on Saturday and have me lined up as one of the official attendees. You can see all the details here. Come hang out, have a drink, it’ll be fun.
I look forward to seeing everyone!
