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 Park, Living Single), artist/writer Tony Puryear (Concrete Park, the Schwarzenegger film Eraser), and writer Brandon Thomas (Skybound’s Horizon, Miranda Mercury).

What do mainstream comics look like? What appeals to “the average reader”? Bryan Lee O’Malley & Leslie Hung (SNOTGIRL), Jamie McKelvie (THE WICKED + THE DIVINE), Brandon Thomas (HORIZON), and Jim Zub (WAYWARD) are making books that appeal to anyone and everyone, and redefining the idea of mainstream comics in the process.
