After a twelve year hiatus*, I will be at San Diego Comicon 2018 promoting THE RED HOOK, and the 10th Anniversary edition of THE ALCOHOLIC (my graphic novel collaboration with Jonathan Ames).
Here is my weekend schedule:
1pm - 1:45pm Image Comics booth #2729 signing for The Red Hook
3:30pm - 4:30pm Berger Books group signing at Dark Horse booth #2615
5pm - 6pm Berger Books: The Second Wave panel in Room 25ABC
Berger Books keeps great comics coming in its second wave of new and unusual genre-bending series. Editor Karen Berger (Vertigo founder) is joined by Christopher Cantwell (co-creator of AMC’s acclaimed Halt and Catch Fire, She Could Fly), Dean Haspiel (Emmy Award-winning artist of HBO’s Bored to Death, The Alcoholic), legendary comics writer Ann Nocenti (The Seeds), art director Richard Bruning, and the one and only Dave Gibbons (The Originals expanded edition) plus a special surprise panelist and announcement!
11am - 12pm We Believe in Suspense Image Comics panel in Room 7AB
Comic scribes wield character, dialogue, and panels with clockwork precision, leading readers through a gauntlet of plot beats designed to ratchet tension and escalate stakes. In concert with artists, these storytellers operate outside budget constraints to orchestrate explosive dramas without any limits save their own imaginations. Listen to a panel of thrill gurus including Donny Cates (Redneck) Mirka Andolfo (Unnatural), Steve Orlando (Crude), Jacob Semahn (No. 1 with a Bullet), Megan Hutchison (Rockstars), and Dean Haspiel (The Red Hook) as they deconstruct their approach to weaving the tightest suspense in comics.
1pm - 1:45pm signing at Dark Horse Comics booth #2615
4pm Heavy Metal signing booth #1529
