"Appreciating Comics" in Portland this Wednesday; "Reading Comics" in Minneapolis this Thursday

| | Comments (0)

I mentioned it in the sidebar, but I should say something about it here, too: Kicking off the grand Summer 2007 Reading Comics American Tour, I'll be moderating a panel this Wednesday, June 27, at Multnomah County Library, called "Appreciating Comics."

It's happening 6-7:30 PM at the Central Library's U.S. Bank Room, 801 SW 10th Ave. in Portland, OR. The other panelists are Scott McCloud (of Understanding Comics/Making Comics fame), Colleen Coover (Banana Sunday), Dylan Meconis (Family Man), Jenn Manley Lee (Dicebox) and Gail Simone (Birds of Prey). It should be really, really fun, and I hope to see Portlanders there.

There's some official information here! And I can't resist displaying Jenn's drawings of five of us with glasses:

Then, Wednesday, my first head-to-head of the summer with the mighty Austin Grossman, at the aforementioned Rain Taxi event in Minneapolis (7:30 PM at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design's auditorium, 2501 Stevens Ave.). We'll be discussing superheroes and reading briefly from our books; I will probably also talk a bit about World War Hulk.
