I’m heading east for New York Comic Con, which runs from October 9–12, and together with Jerzy Drozd, I’ll be participating on a couple of panels and signing copies of our new documentary comic book, The Warren Commission Report: A Graphic Investigation Into the Kennedy Assassination. We’ll also talk about the work of our nonprofit organization Kids Read Comics.
Here’s the schedule:
Thursday, October 9, 7pm: NYCC Kickoff Party at Bergen Street Comics! – Ernie Colón joins Jerzy and me, plus some other great cartoonists, for an evening of fun (and book signing) at Brooklyn’s Bergen Street Comics. Details here.
Friday, October 10, 11:15 am: Abrams ComicArts Preview Panel, NYCC 1A01
For 65 years Abrams has been the country’s premiere art book publisher. It’s been five years since the launch of Abrams ComicArts in 2009, and the tradition of excellence continues with bestselling, award-winning original graphic novels and coffee table books. Join the ComicArts team and their Authors as they discuss current titles, and reveal exciting details about the upcoming Spring 2015 list and forthcoming projects. Includes a slide show, surprise announcements, special guests and giveaways.
Friday, October 10, 2:15 pm: Library-Based Comic Conventions Panel, NYCC 1A01
The future of libraries and the future of comics are converging: not only through ever-growing graphic novel sections, but through comics-focused programming, particularly programs aimed at youth and teen patrons. Libraries now host full-fledged comic book conventions that have drawn hundreds, sometimes thousands of attendees, as well as popular comics creators as guests.
Both panels will be followed by book signing at the Abrams booth, #2228.
Hope to see you there!
