Covering New York Comic Con

New York Comic Con is always an exhausting experience but I had the chance to sit in on some interesting panels when I was there.

I covered Kieron Gillen, Canaan White and William Christensen talking about "Uber," the big new series from Avatar Press. I'm a big fan of Kieron Gillen and honestly I would have liked to have a longer conversation about World War II and recent historical revision and rethinking, but that's a very different conversation for another time.

I sat in on Kate Beaton, Ryan North and Chris Hastings talking about webcomics and their work outside of webcomics. Hell, that's a great conversation right there. Also, Ms Beaton talked about (and signed) her contract with Scholastic for a picture book starring the fat pony

Buddy Scalera talked with Jimmy Palmiotti for an hour and a half reviewing his life and work and it was a great conversation. If you've ever met Palmiotti you know he's a great conversationalist and it was a fun time.

One of the last panels of the con was about graphic noir with Jules Feiffer and Darwyn Cooke, moderated by Paul Levitz. What more can I say?
