SDCC 2012 Schedule

After skipping last year’s show, I’m heading back to Comic-Con International: San Diego, know to the rest of the world simply as Comic-Con or SDCC. It’s big, it’s crowded, it’s noisy, and yes, it’s about a lot more than just comics. None of which is necessarily bad, but it does make the show a bit of an ordeal to be endured, rather than enjoyed.

My public schedule is pretty slim this year, so I have time to take meetings and do the behind-the-scenes business that is such a part of the show. I have a signing block on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, as well as a panel on Saturday. Details below. There will be a San Diego-exclusive edition of Artifacts #19 available at the Top Cow booth, with a great Michael Broussard cover, limited to 500 copies.

Thursday
10 a.m.-noon, signing at Top Cow, Booth #2629

Friday
Noon-2 p.m., signing at Top Cow, Booth #2629

Saturday
11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m., Top Cow panel, Room 8
4-6 p.m., signing at Top Cow, Booth #2629

Otherwise, I hope to be hanging out at Trickster, which is at 795 J Street, close to the convention center, and eating every meal I can at my favorite restaurant in town, El Vitral.

If you’re going to San Diego, hope you can come by to say hi.

Cheers,

Ron


In Stores This Week

Two new books on shelves this week (to go along with last week’s Magdalena Vol. 2 trade paperback collection). First up is Artifacts #19 from Top Cow/Image, which kicks off a new storyline, featuring an Artifacts bearer we’ve met before, albeit briefly. Dr. Rachel Harrison appeared in issue #14, finding a corpse that was ultimately traced to a gangland execution, Jackie Estacado style.

In issue #19, Rachel takes center stage, setting up her life as an emergency-room doctor, and now bearer of the Heart Stone. The three-issue arc will take Rachel to some unexpected places, and bring her face to face with Tom Judge once again. Art is my Stjepan Sejic, as usual, and you can see a preview here:

My other work out this week is the introduction I wrote for Tarzan: The Jesse Marsh Years Vol. 11 from Dark Horse. I suppose my love for Tarzan is no secret at this point, but I’m thankful for the opportunity to wax poetic about one of my favorite characters ever in the intro. I’d work on a Tarzan comic in a heartbeat.

Of course, I don’t think anybody’s crazy enough to shell out 50 bucks just to read my intro. This volume contains a big chunk of Marsh’s simply powerful and powerfully simple Tarzan work. Plus, the cover has Tarzan fighting a shark. A shark! A preview of the interiors, though not my intro, can be found here:

Kreegah!
