After way too long, I will be attending a live, in-person convention this weekend. I’ll be returning to the Biltmore Comic-Con and with a slightly stripped down schedule, I will be honored to moderate five panels across the three days. Since the first quarter ends Thursday, we have Friday as a break so I get to be there for the whole show, which will be great. I truly look forward to reuniting with so many peers.
My panel schedule has me chatting with old pals and some people whose work I admire but have never really spoken with before. For those attending, consider joining me for the following:
Anything but Super Heroes
We love super heroes, but there are many other stories to tell. What are the themes, genres, issues, and more being explored without superpowers? Moderator Bob Greenberger talks with Becky Cloonan, (Southern Cross), David Petersen (Mouse Guard), Emily S. Whitten (The Underfoot), Thom Zahler (Warning Label), and Ian McGinty (Welcome to Showside) to find out.
Comic strip veterans Joe Staton (Dick Tracy), and Alex Saviuk (Spider-Man) discuss the rigors of the daily grind and how they compare and differ from comics. Moderated by Bob Greenberger.
Continuing the Legacy
When inheriting a long-running series, what do you do to prepare? Tom King (Batman/Catwoman), Karl Kesel (The Adventures of Superman), Christopher Priest (Black Panther), and Robert Venditti (Superman ’78) share their thoughts on this with Bob Greenberger. Sponsored by The Hero Initiative.
Tales of Breaking In
Everyone has a different story about how they got started in comics. Hear the wild and wacky tales from across the decades and companies from Art Baltazar (Tiny Titans), Jamal Igle (The Wrong Earth), Dave Johnson (Pop Kill), and moderator Bob Greenberger.
Keep it Fresh
After five, ten, twenty years, what do creators do to recharge and keep themselves interested? Paul D. Storrie (Harley Quinn & the Gotham Girls), Jerry Ordway (Power of Shazam!), Peter J. Tomasi (Detective Comics), and Dean Haspiel (The Red Hook) share their secrets with Bob Greenberger – and you!
