2016 San Diego Comic-Con Schedule {UPDATED}

It’s that time of year again, and on the heels of the launch of Horizon last week, incredibly hype for what I already know is going to be an interesting and exciting show.

Here’s where you can find me during the weekend, and please do not hesitate to drop by, say hello, and get some books signed. Thanks again for all of the support and great reviews/feedback on Horizon #1. Means the world to the entire creative team, and just this morning, Juan sent in the opening sequence of Horizon #6, which can only be described in two words—BOSS LEVEL. So many cool developments in store for you all, and it was an amazing feeling to come firing out the gate on Wednesday.

Don’t forgot your Horizon #1 Comic-Con Exclusive Cover either, which Juan and Frank Martin obliterated. It’s only five bucks, and is so worth it. Available at the Image/Skybound booth (#2729) while supplies last, which is also the location for the signings. Thanks again!

THE WRITER’S JOURNEY: MAXIMIZING YOUR EXPOSURE IN THE MARKETPLACE

6:00PM – 7:00PM, ROOM 32AB

This panel addresses what new writers need to do once they have material ready to go out to the masses. The shifting 21st-century digital frontier means the age-old methods of building a career have been rendered irrelevant, and this group of Hollywood screenwriters and graphic novel creators share insider information, publishing secrets, and the professional realities on how to develop your ideas into a viable property and market yourself accordingly. Moderated by 2015 Disney/ABC Writing Program winner and 2014 Eisner Award nominee Brandon Easton (Marvel’s Agent Carter, IDW’s M.A.S.K.), the panel includes TV producer Geoffrey Thorne (Leverage, The Librarians), writer Erika Alexander (Concrete ParkLiving Single), artist/writer Tony Puryear (Concrete Park, the Schwarzenegger film Eraser), and writer Brandon Thomas (Skybound’s Horizon, Miranda Mercury).

COMICS IN #YOURIMAGE: TOMORROW’S COMICS TODAY

Somehow, the stars perfectly aligned and the debut of my brand new original Skybound book Horizon is coming out on the exact same day (July 13) as my return to Marvel Comics. Full solicits and diamond codes are below, and I won’t give the usual speech about how important pre-ordering is, and just assume you all know. Thanks for the support and the enthusiasm, it means a lot!

Best Of (February 2016)

I’m pretty much obsessed with lists—books to read, movies to watch, books and movies already finished, plans for creative domination, etc. I also seem to experience painful bouts of withdrawal if denied a semi-regular outlet to shout out all the cool, amazing things I’m consuming every month that give me those unmistakable hits of excitement and inspiration. There is so much greatness all around us, and this new monthly feature is all about taking a moment to say, “Thank you for existing, and providing an example of why I do what I do.”

My schedule has been interesting lately, so these are things I finished during any given month, which sometimes happens way way way after things originally came out. The list is almost in chronological order, and I’ve got things separated into two brackets, which might change a bit as I refine this new thing over the coming months.

Thanks everyone!
