PANELS HOSTED BY IMAGE COMICS:

  • Thursday, July 19 @ 2:00 – 3:00 p.m., Room 23ABC
    #WeBelieve in Fantasy                        

    Creators conjure magic on a monthly basis, stretching the boundaries of reality to explore resonant themes under a veneer of high fiction. This group of creators has taken a legacy of wands, wizards, and incantations and tailored it to a modern context, where shape-shifting teen baristas search for missing love and reckless rockers parlay with infernal forces. Let this panel of spellbinding talent, including Sam Humphries (BLACKBIRD), Grace Ellis (MOONSTRUCK), Jeremy Haun (THE REALM), Johnnie Christmas (FIREBUG), Megan Hutchison (ROCKSTARS), and other special guests enchant you as they explain the alchemy behind their latest comics.
                                           
  • Friday, July 20 @ 12:00 – 1:00 p.m., Room 23ABC
    #WeBelieve in Horror    

    Image Comics has ushered in a new era of horror with cerebral writers and visceral artists elevating sequential-art dread to claustrophobic heights. From Jeff Lemire‘s atmospheric character piece, GIDEON FALLS, to John Layman‘s kaiju free-for-all, LEVIATHAN, comics are evolving terror to new personal, socially minded levels. Join a roster of the most sinister storytellers including Pornsak Pichetshote, Aaron Campbell, and José Villarubbia (INFIDEL), Will Dennis (the editor of WYTCHES, GIDEON FALLS), and other special guests to discover how they’re altering an entire genre.
                                                 
  • Saturday, July 21 @ 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m., Room 7AB
    #WeBelieve in Suspense                        

    Comic scribes wield character, dialogue, and panels with clockwork precision, leading readers through a gauntlet of plot beats designed to ratchet tension and escalate stakes. In concert with artists, these storytellers operate outside budget constraints to orchestrate explosive dramas without any limits save their own imaginations. Listen to a panel of thrill gurus including Donny Cates (REDNECK), Mirka Andolfo (UNNATURAL), Steve Orlando (CRUDE), Jacob Semahn (NO. 1 WITH A BULLET), Megan Hutchison (ROCKSTARS), and Dean Haspiel (THE RED HOOK) as they deconstruct their approach to weaving the tightest suspense in comics.
                                        
  • Sunday, July 22 @ 1:45 – 2:45 p.m., Room 5AB
    #WeBelieve in Craft                         

    Image hosts a stable of creators who have honed their skills through countless comics, publishers, and media. With their creator-owned projects, these writers and artists build on expansive careers to deliver the apex of comics craftsmanship. Join a murderer’s row of career myth-makers including Joe Casey (NEW LIEUTENANTS OF METAL, MCMLXXV), Justin Greenwood (THE LAST SIEGE), Kickliy (PERDY), and Shannon Wheeler (MEMOIRS OF A VERY STABLE GENIUS) as they chart the paths they traveled to arrive at their current projects.
