SATURDAY
5:00 – 6:00PM HOW TO WRITE COMICS WITH DENNIS O’NEIL, DANNY FINGEROTH AND PAUL BENJAMIN
Accomplished comics writers and editors Dennis O’Neil (Batman; Iron Man), Danny Fingeroth (Spider-Man; Darkhawk) and Paul Benjamin (Pantheon High; Spider-Man) show and tell you how to write comics and graphic novels, going from initial idea to outline to script to finished story. Plus, the panelists will answer your questions about both the creative and business sides of the comics writing profession, including how to find an artist to work with (hint: a comics convention is the number one place!) and how to write exciting dialogue! (MEETING ROOM 12)

SUNDAY:
1:30 – 2:15PM SUPERVILLAINS AND PSYCHOLOGY
Every great superhero faces a rogues gallery full of colorful supervillains. What makes a great supervillain? How evil do they have to be? Do they resemble real criminals in any way? Are they truly insane or just having fun? Dr. Travis Langley (Batman and Psychology: A Dark and Stormy Knight) assembles of super-team of experts to explore what it means to be a supervillain and what kind of person could become one: Paul Benjamin (Amazing Spider-Man,) David DeGrand (MAD Magazine,) Mark Schmidt (Stratum Comics,) Matt Sturges (Salvation Run,) Jay Nitz (The Batman Strikes!,) and maybe a villain or two. You’ve been warned! (MEETING ROOM 12)

3:30 – 4:15PM WORKING WITH WRITER GROUPS: HOW TO BUILD YOUR OWN SUPER TEAM
Writers Paul Benjamin and Matt Sturges have worked in a variety of writers groups together and separately. Come learn how a group of your peers can improve your storytelling skills, force you to work, teach you to accept criticism and make connections in the biz. (MEETING ROOM 12)
