One of the biggest publishers in the comic book world will be on hand for this weekend’s Anaheim, CA con with a pair of panels designed to indoctrinate fans into the Marvel Universe and give some tips for actually working for the company.
To say the least, this is a pretty interesting split of panel presentations that Marvel Comics has readied for Wondercon. The first presentation, called simply The All-New Marvel NOW!, is targeted at comic fans who aren’t into Marvel right now, but might be looking for a jumping on point. This talk will outline the best books to pick up to get onboard with the Marvel NOW! bandwagon.
As for the send panel, that’s more interesting still. Breaking Into Comics the Marvel Way is strictly for writers and artists (and anyone else) who’s longed for the chance to work inside the publisher’s hallowed halls. If you’ve dreamed of writing the next big X-Men crossover event or penciling one of the biggest superheroes in the world with Spider-Man, this one’s for you.
Here’s your official rundown of times and locations as well as the promo copy:
