I’ll be sitting at some table, I imagine (I do know I’m between my collaborators Jonathan Case and Erika Moen), and I’ll be doing a fair amount of panels. Like so:
IT HELPS BUILD CHARACTER
Room: Panel 3
Are you a writer struggling to find your voice? Are you looking for tips or advice to help you get through writer’s block? Are you struggling with figuring out your characters? Come sit down with some of the best writers in comics as they tell you the habits and beliefs that got them to where they are today. Joining this panel is Christopher Yost (Thor: The Dark World), Anina Bennett (Heartbreakers, Boilerplate), Kurt Busiek (Astro City, Marvels), Jeff Parker (Bucko, Adventures of Superman), and Cullen Bunn (The Sixth Gun, Helheim).
WHERE DOES THE WRITING STOP AND THE ART BEGIN?
Room: Panel 5
The creation process is unlike any other. Panel layout, angles, inking, lettering and coloring are all just as much a part of the writing process of a comics book. Join writer/artist Leia Weathington (The Legend of Bold Riley), Jeff Parker (Thunderbolts, Adventures of Superman), Kurt Busiek (Astro City, Marvels) and Shawn Aldridge (Vic Boone) as they go through their process of making a comic book.
SPOTLIGHT: JEFF PARKER
Room: Panel 6
Jeff Parker is the writer/artist of numerous comics including X-Men: First Class, Bucko, Thunderbolts, Agents of Atlas, Dark Avengers, and Adventures of Superman. Hear all about how he does it and ask him your best questions.
Room: Panel 3
One of Portland’s most popular podcasts is coming to an end right here at the Rose City Comic Con. Creators Mikey Neilson (Chronicles of the Nerds) and Bobby Roberts (Welcome to that Whole Thing) pull out all the stops as their panel made up of comic’s top talents bring you the greatest and last Nerdfight. Joining this epic battle is Greg Rucka (Stumptown, The Punisher), Matt Fraction (Hawkeye, Fantastic Four), Kelly Sue DeConnick (Avengers Assemble, Captain Marvel), Dylan Meconis (Bite Me!).
And I will have trades galore at my table, wherever that is, so come by and make me write my name!
