next week at Comic-Con


I’m on one panel and moderating two others! Here’s my schedule:


10:30-11:30 AM, Room 8: Science Fiction That Will Change Your Life. I’ll be appearing alongside the staff of the excellent science fiction blog io9 and some other special guests, talking “about science fiction from the last year that does more than blow things up. It might also blow your mind. What science fiction should you be reading and watching if you want your brain to grow so big it pops out of the top of your skull and starts throbbing and shooting lasers? The panelists have some tips.”


1:30-2:30 PM, Room 10: After the First 1,000 Pages. It takes 10,000 hours of practice to become an expert at something. Art teachers say that you have to make 100,000 bad drawings before you can make a good one. I’ll be moderating a conversation with Gene Colan (Tomb of Dracula), Becky Cloonan (Demo), Zander Cannon (Top 10), Roger Langridge (The Muppet Show Comic Book) and Matt Kindt (Super Spy), discussing how they’ve developed as artists since their early work and the creative breakthroughs that took them a while to reach.


1:30-2:30 PM, Room 4: The One-Panel Panel. A single image can hold an entire world in miniature. I’ll moderate this panel with Charles Vess (Stardust), Hope Larson (Chiggers), Michael Allred (Madman) and Larry Marder (Beanworld), each showing and discussing one particularly meaningful panel from their own comics—how it came together, and where it led them.

Hope to see you there!
