If you’re lucky (?) enough to be headed for the San Diego Comic-Con next week, here’s my public schedule. Once again, Top Cow is graciously hosting me, so the majority of my time will be spent at the Top Cow booth (#2629).

Wednesday, July 21
No scheduled signing for Preview Night, but I’ll probably be at the Top Cow booth for a while.

Thursday, July 22

Noon-1:30 p.m. , signing at Top Cow booth (#2629)

Friday, July 23

11:30 a.m.-1 p.m., signing for donations at Hero Initiative booth (#5003), accompanied by Artifacts artists Michael Broussard, who will be sketching for donations. Hero Initiative is a great cause, so please come out and support it.

1:30-2:30 p.m., signing at Top Cow booth (#2629).

3:30-4:30 p.m., signing with Michael Broussard at iFanboy booth (#2229)

Saturday, July 24

11:30 a.m.-1 p.m., signing at Top Cow booth (#2629).

1:30-2:30 p.m., Top Cow panel in Room 9.

Sunday, July 25
No signings; sorry, flying home a day early to get back to work.

I’ll have new projects announced at both Friday’s Image Comics panel (which I won’t be attending) and Saturday’s Top Cow panel (which I will attend), with accompanying articles appearing on the comics news sites shortly thereafter. Or at least that’s the plan. Obviously I’ll have updates on those projects here on the blog once the San Diego madness has passed.

Artifacts #1 will be debuting at the show (copies aren’t schedule to be in stores until the following week). I just read a PDF of the complete issue, and I have to say, I’m pretty damn pleased with the finished product. Michael Broussard’s art is extravagant, as is the two-page Witchblade origin story penciled by Marc Silvestri.

Top Cow will be selling a couple of pretty awesome Con Exclusive covers for my books, with Michael Broussard’s awesome Artifacts #1 wraparound cover, and Kenneth Rocafort’s Velocity #1 cover (both of which you see pictured above). If you happen to out there in the belly of the beast known as SDCC, please stop by and say hi.

Cheers,

Ron
