My LoneStarCon Schedule

Next week, I’ll be presenting at the 71st Annual World Science Fiction Convention, also known as LoneStarCon3. If you’re a Sci-Fi/Fantasy geek near San Antonio, it’s worth checking out.

Here’s a schedule of the panels and events in which I’ll be presenting:

HEY! KIDS COMICS! The Return of Kid-Friendly Books

Sunday 12:00 – 13:00

Comics spent so many years being dark and spooky, they forgot that it’s the kids who grow up and become new fans. There’s a wealth of all ages friendly books out there for kids and parents to enjoy. Our panelists have created some of them and talk about meeting the needs of this new group of fans.

Playing in Other People’s Sandboxes: Writing Comics That Aren’t Your Own

Sunday 15:00 – 16:00

Whether you’re writing Spider-Man, Jonah Hex, the Incredibles, or Fruit Ninja, you never get to really own these characters. But they sure are fun to play with! Hear some stories about what it’s like dealing with today’s corporate overlords.
