Here’s all the panels full of announcements, special guests, and surprises you won’t want to miss out on!
IDW Publishing: The Big Panel, Saturday, April 9th, 4:15p.m. - 5:15p.m.
IDW President Greg Goldstein, VP of Marketing Dirk Wood, and editor Sarah Gaydos for a lively discussion of your favorite Publisher’s upcoming schedule! Top Secret Reveals! Prizes! Q&A! Announcements…Including one so big it will make your head spin! If you attend one comic panel at this show, this is the one!
God is Disappointed in You 2: Apocrypha Now, Sunday, April 10th, 2:30p.m. - 3:30p.m.
It's the second coming! Their first book, God Is Disappointed in You, was an irreverent-yet-faithful adaptation of the Bible that got everyone talking. Now, Mark Russell (Prez, The Flintstones) & Shannon Wheeler (The New Yorker, Too Much Coffee Man) are back with a follow-up book, Apocrypha Now, about the stories that DIDN'T make it into the Bible. Some of these stories were forgotten, some suppressed, others were just too freaking weird for the Bible (and that's saying something). In a special advance release for Emerald City, Apocrypha Now is about what the Bible DIDN'T tell you.
IDW: Kids Comics & More! Sunday, April 10th, 4:00p.m. - 5:00p.m.
Kids! IDW loves comics as much as you do, so come find out what's new for 2016! My Little Pony, Disney, Angry Birds, TMNT, Transformers, Skylanders, Strawberry Shortcake and more! Want to learn how to make your own comics? Come prepared with questions for the panel, including editor Sarah Gaydos and writer/artist Derek Charm, of Powerpuff Girls fame! Free comics for the kids!

As you may have seen me announce yesterday, I had to unfortunately cancel on Emerald City Comic Con. I just wasn’t able to confirm in time, despite them generously giving me extra time to do so.
However, since then I have been able to make another show work that is closer and goes for less days, and is therefore easier for me to do.
Yes, I will have a table at Botcon in Louisville, kentucky!
There were no Artist Alley tables available when I signed up, but they were able to set me up with an exhibitor booth.
Please note: I'll be in the Grand Ballroom area, not in Artist Alley
I’ll also, have a new print of Drift in his MTMTE season 1 and 2 design!
I don’t think I’ll have much time to do sketches before coming to Kentucky, but I’ll take a limited amount of sketches ahead of time. If nothing else, they’ll be the first on my list at the show. I’ll be doing as many as I can take during the show.
If you’re interested in a sketch, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’m going to try to limit myself to 5.
My prices are below.
Head sketch $30
Full Body $120
For color, add $25
This will actually be only the second time I’ve tabled at a Botcon, so I’m anxious to see how it will be. Please come by and say hello!
And it will be my very first time in Kentucky, so I’m looking forward to experiencing that Southern hospitality I’ve heard so much about!
