That’s right! I’ll be a writer in artist alley at this year’s LONG BEACH COMIC EXPO on February 20th & 21st, selling and signing copies of all four IDW volumes of AMELIA COLE, THE BIGGER BANG issues 1 – 4 (plus the snazzy trade collection), and the Dark Horse NEVER ENDING trade paperback.
There’s also a cool panel that I get to participate in with the likes of Jimmy Palmiotti, Tony Donley, and Megan Hutchison! Here’s the info:
#MakeComics: The Advantages of Creator Owned Comics
Moderator: Marcus Perry
Description of Panel: Playing in others’ sandboxes is fun, but sometimes doing your own thing can be just as fulfilling. Join Jimmy Palmiotti (Painkiller Jane, Hype), Tony Donley (Albert Einstein: Time Mason), D.J. Kirkbride (Amelia Cole, Popgun Anthology from Image Comics), and Megan Hutchison (The Aurora Grimeon Stories) to talk about why creating their own work is necessary as well as rewarding. Moderated by Marcus Perry (co-creator of Albert Einstein: Time Mason and Descendant from Image Comics).
Panel date: Saturday, February 20th
Panel time: 1:30pm-2:30pm
Room name/number: Creator’s Lab, S5
I couldn’t get a table, so I sneaking in thanks to the Eat/Geek/Play‘s Kevin Knight, who I appreciate so much I make sure to spell his name correctly!
(Pic above ripped off of Tom Pinchuk‘s design. He told me it was okay.)
I’ll be at their table from 10am to 12pm selling and signing copies of AMELIA COLE AND THE HIDDEN WAR and NEVER ENDING — plus I have a few AMELIA COLE T-Shirts left in stock!
Then at 4 it’s off to their epic “Geeks Against Humanity” game! Should be something!
