It's that time of year again, folks: SAN DIEGO COMIC-CON, the craziest place on Earth. Here's (most) of my signing/panel schedule so far:
11am-1pm: Signing with Ben Templesmith at his booth (#1131). We'll be selling/signing copies of the CHOKER tpb, plus also flogging a San Diego Comic-Con exclusive print. But it's not just any print... Oh no. We'll both be painting/personalising this print with GUINNESS. Real, delicious Guinness. Pic below:
3PM-4PM: Signing copies of LOOKOUTS (with SDCC exclusive cover by Mike Krahulik) at the Cryptozoic Comic-Con store at 411 Market Street (between 4th & 5th Avenues). Details: http://www.cryptozoic.com/articles/special-guests-cryptozoic-comic-con-store
3-5pm: Signing at Ben Templesmith's table--another opportunity to pick up the mental print seen above!
8-11PM: LOOKOUTS PARTY WITH THE PENNY ARCADE CREW! Me, PA Head Honchos Jerry Holkins & Mike Krahulik plus Cryptozoic CCO Cory Jones will be signing copies of LOOKOUTS a full month-and-a-half ahead of its scheduled print release, and it boasts a Comic-Con EXCLUSIVE cover by Mike Krahulik! It's an absolute beauty, too:

This party's likely to be absolutely nuts, so make sure you arrive early!
2-3pm: Signing on the Image Comics booth with BEN TEMPLESMITH. We'll be selling the SDCC-exclusive print (Ben will have plenty of other prints available), copies of CHOKER, plus also telling appalling jokes. I'll have the first PIGS tpb, too, as well as the Katie Cook ultra-cute Con variant of issue one.
4-5pm: NEVSKY panel. Me, writer/director Scott Tuft (SEVERED), Eisner-nominated artist Ramon Perez (A TALE OF SAND), storyboard/comics artist Gabriel Hardman (INCEPTION) and film historian Steve Saffel (Spider-Man The Icon) talk about NEVSKY, the new IDW Publishing graphic novel by me and Mario Guevara, plus discuss the classic Eisenstein film and its influence on contemporary creators across a variety of different mediums. The panel's in room 23ABC.
1-2pm: Signing at Image Comics booth, again with Mr. Templesmith. Comics. Prints. Art. We'll be selling/signing 'em all.
MORE DETAILS TO FOLLOW--STAY TUNED!
