Heads Up: Last-Minute NYCC Schedule

I had no plans to attend the New York Comic Con, but as it turns out I'll be going on Friday and Saturday to do some appearances for Dark Horse Comics. This was very last-minute, so my name might not get included in the schedules online, but unless this is a big practical joke on me, ha ha, here's where I'll be next week at the nerd mosh pit in the Javitz Center:

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 12

6:30–7:30             Drawing on our Nightmares: Dark Horse Horror in Comics—1A14

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 13

11:00 a.m.            DARK HORSE HORROR SIGNING: Tom Mandrake (To Hell You Ride), Tim Seeley (Ex Sanguine), Christopher Golden (Baltimore), Eric Powell (The Goon), Evan Dorkin (Beasts of Burden).

I was told the folks doing the Saturday signing - Eric Powell, Christopher Golden, et al -- will also be on the Friday panel. I assume writer/editor Scott Allie will be at the panel, at least I hope so. If all goes well the entire House of Fun will be at NYCC on Friday, so some of you might get to see my daughter beat me up in the hall or something like that (I should never have let her watch that AWA documentary).

The full Dark Horse Comics schedule of signings and panels can be found here.

This will be a major event for me as it's the first panel I will be on in quite some time that wasn't called "Humor in Comics", or "Schmucks in Comics", etc. So I'm all a-tingle! And although it's a "horror signing", please feel free to bring copies of Milk & Cheese for me to scribble/doodle in as well as any Beasts of Burden stuff. Or whatever else I worked on. If you have The Goon #35 (or the last Goon trade collection) I can sign that along with Eric Powell. Really and truly I can, in accordance with maritime law and everything. 

Oh -- I guess I should let you know that I don't have a table at the show, so I won't be in artist alley or set up anywhere in the hall, I'm only doing what's on the schedule. I may be outside the Javitz Center selling cigarettes on Saturday night, though, if things get bad. I'll let you know.

See some of you next week, I hope.
