THE LAST CON: My NYCC 2012 Details

New York Comic Con is finally here and it’s my absolute last convention of the year! So, we’re doing it up big.

Not only am I rolling the whole con in Artist’s Alley, I’m sporting two tables (R7 & R8) with a tight crew of dudes I collaborate with.

INCLUDING:

ROSS CAMPBELL (Glory)

ANDRE SZYMANOWICZ (Hell Yeah)

KEN GARING (Intergalactic)

+ Surprises??? (Maybe!) 

This will be the very first convention I’ll be slinging both GLORY Vol. 1 AND HELL YEAH Vol. 1. In addition, it will be the WORLD PREMIERE of the return of GLORY, as we’ll be debuting GLORY #29. It’s the origin of her little sister. If you’ve read 28, you know that means it’ll be really violent.

Here’s a preview page I haven’t shown anywhere else:

(UPDATE! 10/09)

I will also be on TWO THREE panels! 

The first one’s not actually at NYCC, but rather at the world famous Jim Hanley’s comic shop. 

On Wednesday, October 10th, at 7pm, Depth Of Field Magazine is presenting A Celebration of Pop Music Comics at Jim Hanley’s Universe in Manhattan. I guess I’ll be talking about pop music in comics. There will be a bunch of rad folks there, including moderator Patrick Reed (editor of Depth Of Field Magazine), High Moon’s David Gallaher, Phonogram & Uncanny X-Men’s Kieron Gillen, PUNK Magazine’s John Holmstrom, Molly Danger’s Jamal Igle, ethnomusicologist Elizabeth Keenan, The Fifth Beatle & Dusty Star’s Andrew Robinson (holy shit i love Dusty Star), 27’s Charles Soule, Human Being Lawnmower’s Avi Spivak, Fifth Beatles’ Vivek J. Tiwardy and Prince of Cats’ Ronald Wimberly. Hot damn that’s a ridiculous line up. Very stoked to be part of the proceedings.

AND NOW A NEW PANEL.

On Thursday, I’ll be on the Image Revolution Documentary Panel in  ROOM 1A04 at 6:30 PM. It’s a panel on the upcoming Image Comics documentary and I guess I’l talking about Image Comics. I used to work there doing PR. Now I write comics for them. WHAT’S NEXT? (probably more writing comics)

ALSO, on Sunday…!

Marvel NOW!: Amazing Spider-Man and Beyond, 10:45 AM in room 1E07. Here’s Marvel’s official description: Marvel NOW! is on the horizon and Spidey & Co. are in the spotlight. Find out what to expect from the Spider-Man Office when Senior Editor Steve Wacker, Dan Slott (Amazing Spider-Man), Mark Waid (Daredevil), Joe Keatinge (Morbius), Kevin Shinick (Avenging Spider-Man), Ryan Stegman (Scarlet Spider), Declan Shalvey (Venom) and Arune Singh (Director of Communications) come to town! And Spider-Man won’t be the only topic of discussion here! Get the details on Daredevil, Punisher, and more!

Yeah, so if you wanna here me yammer on about Morbius, this is your golden opportunity!

And finally, if you’re looking for me, my banner stand is currently locked in Emi Lenox’s car while she’s in Japan, so just look out for this face at R7 and R8.

Yeah, THAT Monkey Brain Comics - the digital initative headed by Chris Roberson & Allison Baker that made a gigantic splash last week. They announced a number of series they’re doing. They also announced I’m on their panel. Since one of the series announced wasn’t by me does that mean they’ll announce one that is at the panel?! FIND OUT, TRUE BELIEVERS! 

See ya there!

JMKNYCC2011

UPDATE (OCTOBER 7th): Please note the ALL-NEW, ALL-DIFFERENT time for my signing on Saturday! There’s a heightened alert of President Ronnie being kidnapped by ninjas when I was signing before and they have to make sure there’s a bad enough dude ready to save him.

LOOK OUT! My schedule for New York Comic Con (October 13-16th) is finally here!

PLUS: I highly, highly recommend attending CREATOR-OWNED COMICS WITH ROBERT KIRKMAN on Friday at 4:00 - 5:00 PM in the American Airlines Theater, 1A06. Last time they announced Brian K. Vaughn’s return to comics, 50,000 Jonathan Ross titles AND that BRUTAL comic I keep talking about. This time…? LET’S FIND OUT TOGETHER!

P.S.: Big ups to Ross Campbell for DOOMing up that photo. His threat of physical violence is my marketing material gain!

THIS IS HAPPENING.

Details to come.
