My Baltimore Comic-Con Schedule

bcc-2013-logoBaltimore Comic-Con has become my go to show to catch up with friends and colleagues, checking out what’s new, and reveling in being a fan. However, I also get to moderate a handful of panels each year and my schedule this weekend is chock full of coolness.

Friday

Stories I Haven’t Yet Told, Rooms 347-348, 5:00-6:00

Writers are storytellers but not every comics writer can find the right venue for a story they want to tell. What stories remain lurking in their minds? In a lively discussion, Louise Simonson, Terry Moore, John Ostrander, Ron Marz, and moderator Robert Greenberger explore the matter.

Saturday

The Marvel Panel, Rooms 339-342, 11:00-Noon
In the wake of Secret Wars, it’s an All-New, All-Different Marvel Universe! Want to know what this means for your favorite heroes? Then join creators including Charles Soule, Greg Pak, and Frank Tieri for this exciting look to the future! I’ll be moderating in lieu of Tom Brevoort who had to cancel his convention appearance.

Drawing Fantasy Worlds, Rooms 347-348, 1:30-2:30

What goes into making a fantasy world? How do you set it apart from every other fantasy world from literature and comics?  How do you give the writer exactly what he envisions? Take a journey into the realm of the fantastic with Mark Buckingham, Mike Grell, Charles Vess, Brandon Peterson, and moderator Robert Greenberger.

The Mark Waid Guest of Honor panel, Rooms 347-348, 4:00-5:00.

I shall preside over a tribute to GOH Mark Waid, who I once shared an office with. Joining us on the dais will be his friends and collaborators Dean Haspiel, Barry Kitson, JG Jones, Christy Blanch, and Todd Dezago. Con impresario Marc Nathan told me if he’s available, he may stop in to tell a Mark story.

I’ll be wandering around the rest of the time so if you see me, say hello.
