Paul Tobin and I will be special guests at Comic-Con International later this month! As the convention site updates the programming schedule, I’ll be posting our scheduled appearances and signings here! Paul, in particular has a lot of stuff on his plate through the show, so stay tuned. Today, we have the schedule though Saturday!
11:00 am – 12:00 pm, DARK HORSE COMICS Booth 2615 (PAUL):
Horror genre news and review site Bloody Disgusting calls Colder “a unique story about the nature of insanity from Paul Tobin and Juan Ferreyra that oozed confidence and chilled to the core.” Paul and Juan will be signing volume one, and also promoting their upcoming second volume of the Eisner-nominated hit!
12:30 pm – 2:00 pm, ONI PRESS Booth 1833 (PAUL):
SIGNING: I WAS THE CAT (Day Three!)
With IWTC artist Benjamin Dewey! Just like on Thursday and Friday, Paul & Ben will again be signing the special SDCC advance edition of their new graphic novel, I Was The Cat (general release August 6, 2014). With limited supplies of sweet-ass giveaway material!
2:00 pm – 3:00 pm, Room 9 (PAUL):
I Was the Cat creators Paul Tobin and Benjamin Dewey share a hilarious presentation about their new graphic novel and the finer points of feline world domination. After that, it’s Hemingway or the Highway when Joshua Hale Fialkov and Gabo present a live table read of The Life After #1! Come for the freebies, stay for the detailed descriptions of a future cat war, adventures in purgatory, and news and announcements about future Oni Press comics!
Well-written, realistic female characters are celebrated in this panel featuring Comic-Con International special guests June Brigman (Power Pack), Amanda Conner (Power Girl), Colleen Coover (Bandette), Sara Mayhew (Legend of the Ztarr), Jimmy Palmiotti(Painkiller Jane), Fiona Staples (Saga), Paul Tobin (Bandette), and Brian K. Vaughan(Saga), and moderated by Maggie Thompson. Strong female characters can be heroes or villains, have weaknesses and strengths, flaws or assets, and ultimately make the stories we love to read.

The magic creative team from Colder, Paul Tobin and Juan Ferreyra, are together again!
