NYCC – Panels and Signings

I will be at New York Comic Con this year. I won’t have a table, but there area  couple of times when you can be sure to find me.

First, I’ll be at the Comix Tribe booth (2380) on Friday from 12:30-2:00, where I’ll be signing copies of the Oxymoron anthology (my story features gorgeous art by Aaron Houston — check out the first page below), and anything else you bring my way.

Second, I’ll be on two panels, both during pro hours on Thursday, and both run by Comics Experience. Here the info, from the Comics Experience web site:

Pitching for Professionals

2:30PM – 3:30PM

When you finally have an editor willing to hear your ideas, will you be ready? From tips on how to succeed in a “bake-off” competition to how to present ideas cold, this panel will help you and your project get the green light it deserves! Listen in as former Marvel and IDW editor Andy Schmidt, Marvel Editor Nick Lowe, writer Paul Allor, and Bob Schreck, Editor-in-Chief of Legendary Comics and former DC Comics, Dark Horse Comics, and IDW Publishing editor, discuss the ins-and-outs of pitching!

Surviving Collaboration

Comics are a collaborative medium. Do you know how to bring out the best from your collaborators? Join former Marvel and IDW editor/writer Andy Schmidt, penciler Robert Atkins, colorist and former editor Chris Sotomayor, and writer Paul Allor (TMNT Micro-Series, Clockwork) as they discuss collaborative best practices, tips for writers and artists, and strategies for handling editor feedback. Become the kind of creator everyone wants to work with!

So, that’s where you can find me. I’m very excited about this show, and I hope to see some of you there!
