Dueling Panels at Comic Con

My good friend Google Alerts just informed me that Zander and I are having dueling panels at Comic Con in San Diego this year. That's right, you've only got two weeks to decide whether you want to spend 4-5pm on Thursday July 23 watching Zander deliver a well-rounded & thorough explanation of comic book production methods, or watch Kevin nervously mumble into his microphone about how much he loathes drawing things in twenty-four hour spurts. Room 18 or Room 10. There's no middle ground. You must choose.

4:00-5:00 Top Shelf in 2009— With League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (Vol. III) and the new edition of Lost Girls, plus The Surrogates movie starring Bruce Willis hitting theaters on September 25, and literary titles such as Essex County, Alec, and Far Arden being released, it's going to be an amazing year at Top Shelf. Come talk with publisher Chris Staros and creators Robert Venditti (The Surrogates), Jeff Lemire (Essex County), Kevin Cannon (Far Arden), and Nate Powell (Swallow Me Whole) to find out all the details. Room 10

4:00-5:00 How-To Session: Zander Cannon— Zander Cannon has been working in comics since 1993 and has done both writing and art duties on comics about knights, robots, spacemen, cops, superheroes, ghosts, and mythical creatures. His presentation will cover how to produce comics and other books as an independent publisher. With Kevin Cannon (no relation) he runs the studio Big Time Attic, which focuses on educational comics for book publishers. Room 18

Or . . . you could help us out and volunteer to watch our booth for an hour. That would actually be pretty awesome.

Any chance someone will be good enough to make audio recordings of these panels? They sound great.

If that wasn't bad enough, both of these are against the panel that I most want to see at the whole convention: the Richard Thompson spotlight.

Oh to be triplicate girl for a day.
