This Weekend

This weekend New York City will host the New York Comic-Con at the Jacob Javits Center. It’s been a while since there was a major NYC con and this is the first run by Reed Exhibitions, the folk who run professional conferences in a wide variety of fields.

The schedule is jammed plus there will be comic publishers, book publishers, cable channels and movie studios all presenting stuff.

I will be there on Saturday only and have just one appearance scheduled. The con organizers have asked me to moderate the following panel:

Feb 25, 2006 – 5:00PM to 6:50PM – 1E14/1E15
Check out the latest from Comedy Central and Spike TV. You’ll view screenings of never-before-seen episodes of upcoming programs, followed by a panel discussion with Comedy Central and Spike executives and show creators, including Eric Mahoney, writer/creator of Comedy Central’s first made for mobile animated series, Samurai Love God. Learn what these networks look for in on air, online, and mobile programming.

We’ll show clips from Samurai Love God and Spike’s first original series, Blade followed by a conversation which should be entertaining. I’m looking forward to it.

The rest of the day I’ll be wandering the aisles, saying hi to old friends and colleagues. I’m bringing Robbie, who will probably be spending his time in the Game Room.
