My Terrificon Schedule

I was at the first few Terrificion’s when it was a newbie and my how it has grown. After hearing how cool last year’s show was, I angled to get invited to this year’s shindig. It’s this weekend at Mohegan Sun Casino in the wilds of Connecticut.

What makes this year special is that it has the feel, for me, of a high school reunion. I will be sharing panels and have my table adjacent to people I worked with back in the 1980s during my first tenure at DC.

Organizer Mitch Hallock has asked me to moderate five panels and I am not sure which one will be the most fun but I know I will be thrilled to share 45 minutes with these guys. He has me really busy Saturday so anyone looking for me in Artists Alley can find me there Friday, part of Saturday, and the first half of Sunday. I’ll be nestled with my fellow Crazy 8 Press scribes, Paul Kupperberg and Peter David.

Friday

Marvel in the 1970s, 4-4:45, Panel Room 1

Steve Englehart, Roy Thomas, and Steven Grant will wax nostalgic about the second decade of the Marvel Universe when it felt like anything goes and nothing was off-limits.

Saturday

Supergirl, 2:45-1:30, Panel Room 2

Paul Kupperberg, Martin Pasko, and Peter David all wrote the Maid of Might’s adventures and will compare notes, swap stories, and natter on about her. No doubt some mention will be made of the CW series.

Crisis on Infinite Earths, 2:15-3:00, Panel Room 1

Marv Wolfman, Jerry Ordway, Mike DeCarlo, and I will relive that terrifying year when we tore down and rebuilt the DC Universe without knowing how it would be received or what would happen next.

Justice League 30th Reunion, 5:15-6:00, Panel Room 1

J.M. DeMatteis and Kevin Maguire will chat about the insanity that was their incarnation of the Justice League of America and how it brought the grim and gritty era to its knees.

DC in the 1980s, 6:15-7:00, Panel Room 1

Martin Pasko, Marv Wolfman, Tom Lyle, Jose-Luis Garcia-Lopez, and Jerry Ordway did some of their very best work during this era, when DC rose to creative prominence in the field. They’ll look back and figure out how they did it.
