I’ll be a guest at MegaCon, held in Hall D of the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL, from March 25th-27th. Yes, this is the con that CrossGen once owned, and is still “in the family,” so to speak, having been purchased by, and now run by, former CrossGen employee Beth Widera. Beth is one of my favorite people in the world, and she runs an absolutely great show with her husband Richard and daughter Christine.
MegaCon is a chance for me to see some of my CrossGen buddies, as well as grab a few days of warm weather while winter desperately tries to hang on in the Northeast. I’ll have my own table at the con, with current artistic collaborators Kenneth Rocafort (Velocity) and Nelson Blake 2nd (Magdalena) nearby. If all goes as planned, I should have a few cases of various books for sale, as well as a pair of prints.
The first print is the cover to issue #1 of my June-debuting, creator-owned series Shinku
at Image, with art by Lee Moder, Matthew Waite and Michael Atiyeh. The second print is a clever, minimalist take on Artifacts created by Matthew Waite. I’ll be selling the prints, which you can see accompanying this entry, for $10 apiece, and all of the money will be donated to the Japanese tsunami relief effort.
I’ll also be part of a different panel each day at the show.
- Friday: 5-6 p.m., Top Cow panel (Room 221E)
- Saturday: 10:15-11:05 a.m., Green Lantern panel (Room 222A)
- Sunday: 4:10-5 p.m., Creator-Owned Comics panel (Room 222A)
