Getting Ready For San Diego Comic-Con 2009 (Part 3)

Monster MarathonMore stuff for my table (Artist Alley FF-15) at San Diego! My Li’l Daikaiju drawing from a few weeks back will be available as a 8″x10″ digital print in a limited edition of 30. Again, I’ll also have copies of the Small Favors collections, buttons, and blank card sets, and more!

As for programming events; my schedule so far:

  • Saturday 4:30-5:30 Love is in the Air: LGBT Romance Comics— Romance comics, once a staple of the comics industry but now considered campy curiosities, have inspired a new generation that has created their own take on matters of the heart while moving beyond the boy-girl soap operas of yesteryear. Moderator Charles “Zan” Christensen (Mark of Aeacus) and panelists Terry Moore (Strangers in Paradise), Tim Fish (Cavalcade of Boys), Mari Morimoto (manga translator of Naruto), Colleen Coover (X-Men: First Class), Steve MacIsaac (Shirtlifter), and Michelle Nolan (Love on the Racks: A History of American Romance Comics) discuss the new LGBT romance comics. Room 30AB
  • Sunday 11:00-12:00 Women of Marvel— One of the most talked about panels from last year is back! Forget Storm and She-Hulk, meet the real Ms. Marvels of the comic world! Women from every discipline in the creative process at Marvel will be on hand to talk about what it’s like working as a woman in comics today and how you can join them. Say goodbye to the so-called “Boy’s Club,” these ladies are busting down the four-color ceiling! Guests include New York Times bestselling author Marjorie Liu (Dark Wolverine), Christina Strain (World War Hulk), Colleen Coover (Marvel Adventures), Sonia Oback (X-Force), Emily Warren (Secret Invasion), and more! Room 7AB

And I’ll be attending the Mondo Marvel panel on Thursday from 1:00-2:00 in room 6DE, where Paul Tobin will be a panelist. More scheduling as I get information, and I’ll try to Tweet my appearances live from the show!
