It’s been pretty busy here on my end, with writing deadlines on the new Kill Shakespeare: The Mask of Night comic series arc, work on the board game, other Kill Shakespeare projects (to be announced later this year) and some other new stuff (including a big personal event). But as the weather starts to get a little warmer (well, it’s supposed to get warmer, but hasn’t done so here in Toronto yet…) a new season is upon us – spring convention season!
Conor and I will be busy again over the next two months with a lot of appearances at conventions across North America and Europe (look out MCM London Expo!). We did a small warm-up with the Toronto Comic-Con two weeks ago and now things start in earnest this weekend with… Emerald City Comic-Con in Seattle!
I attended Emerald City two years ago and was blown away by not only how big the show is but how much fun it is. It’s a great group of people that run the event and there’s an amazing roster of talent that will be attending this year.
I will be at the show the entire weekend at our Table O-09 (WSCC Level 4) so come by and say hello, pick up a copy of our books, grab some ShakesGeare merchandise, etc.
I am also on two panels/workshops over the weekend, and they are:
New Comic Trends: Is ‘Literary’ the New ‘Superhero’?
Are fantasy, myth, historical and talking animal stories replacing superheroes as the most interesting comic tales of the day? David Petersen (Mouse Guard), Bryan J.L. Glass (Mice Templar), Anthony Del Col (Kill Shakespeare) and Adam Knave (Amelia Cole) debate this, with Stephanie Cooke moderating.
Saturday, March 29, 5:20pm, Hall C, (Rooms 610)
How to Market Your Indie Comic to the Masses
This entertaining workshop – sold out last year! – will find IDW Publishing’s Kill Shakespeare creator (and marketer) Anthony Del Col show you how to get your comics into the fans of readers, retailers and reviewers.
Sunday, March 30, 12:00pm, ROOM 2B.
So if you’re at this year’s show swing by and say hello! I look forward to seeing everyone there!
