My Baltimore Comic-Con Schedule
Despite my name not being on the guest page (again), I can guarantee you that I will be at the Baltimore Comic-Con this coming weekend. I will be changing identities from mild-mannered English teacher to veteran comic book pro sometime on Friday afternoon in time to begin my moderator duties. This year, program guru (and my Westfield Comics editor) Roger Ash, has given me four very different assignments and I look forward to all of them.
I won’t have a table so other than the following panels, I will be seen wandering the aisles, mainly in Artist’s Alley, hanging with old pals.
Friday. September 5, 5pm-6pm, Room 339-342
Every comics fan has favorite comics, and so do the pros! Join moderator Bob Greenberger along with Alan Davis (Savage Hulk), Denis Kitchen (Kitchen Sink Press), Ron Marz (Witchblade), Allison Sohn (Red Sonja), and Jim Starlin (Thanos: The Infinity Revelation) as they look at the comics they love and have had an impact on them.
Fred Hembeck Spotlight
Sat., September 6, 4pm-5pm, Room 349-350
Fred Hembeck is one of the best known cartoonists working today. His characters with curlicue elbows and knees are instantly recognizable. He’s destroyed the Marvel Universe, roasted the Fantastic Four, and his Dateline:@#$% strip is a favorite of many longtime fans. Bob Greenberger moderates this look inside the mind of Fred Hembeck.
What Does an Editor Do?
Sat., September 6, 5pm-6pm, Room 347-348
Something comics fans always wonder about is what an editor does. And with all the changes in comics over the years, how has the editor’s job changed? Find out here as former DC editors Paul Levitz and Bob Greenberger, editor and Senior Vice President of Publishing of Marvel Comics Tom Brevoort, editor and Art Director at DC Comics Mark Chiarello, BOOM!
