I'll Be at Connecticut ComiCONN Friday Thruough Sunday 8/15-8/17!


My summer of conventions continues this weekend with Connecticut ComiCONN, which is happening Friday 8/15 through Sunday 8/17 at the Webster bank Arena in Bridgeport, CT. Not only will I be selling books and doing podcast interviews, but I'll be hosting and moderating panels all weekend long!


On Friday night from 7:15 to 8PM in the Harbor Room, I'll be hosting a panel on Starting Your Own Podcast. The panel will also feature my show partner Matt Herring, Joe Stuber of Comic Book Central and the IndyCast, Mitch Hallock of the IndyCast and ComicCONN-verstions and Laird Malamed from the indyCast and BondCast. We'll be talking about getting a podcast off the ground, and covering some of the topics that are featured in my book Making Ear Candy, as well as taking questions from the audience.


On Saturday at 3PM in the Harbor Room, I'm moderating a panel that will take a look back at Spider-Man's Clone Saga, featuring longtime Marvel editor Danny Fingeroth and Spider-Man writer Todd DeZago. We'll look at the event itself, as well as the legacy it left in the pages of Spider-man history.


Finally on Sunday at 3PM in the Harbor Room I'll be moderating a panel on Writing Comics with Danny Fingeroth and legend Denny O'Neil. Both have a long history of writing and editing comics, both have penned books on writing comics, and both have taught classes on the craft of comic writing as well. Anyone remotely interested in writing comics should be at this panel.

So, if you're in the Massachusetts/Connecticut/New York area, you should really try to get out to the show this weekend. There are a ton of great creators (George Perez, Keith Giffen, Jamal Igle and more), TV and movie personalities (Nicholas Brendon, William Katt and more), vendors, cosplay events and so much more.
