John Carter of Marz … and Skylanders too!

Just a quick note before I dash out the door to San Diego. Among the pre-SDCC announcements was this one: I’ll be writing a regular John Carter: Warlord of Mars series for Dynamite, with the first issue releasing in November. If you know anything of my affection for Edgar Rice Burroughs in general, and John Carter in specific, you know I’m pretty ecstatic about the assignment. It is, quite literally, a dream come true.

Indian artist Abhishek Malsuni is joining me on the series, and he’s been turning in amazing work. Obviously there will be much more about the series as we get closer to release, but for now, more details and additional art can be seen at this link:

There’s also a recent feature about my work on bringing the Skylanders video game/toy franchise to comics with IDW Publishing. The regular series will debut in October. Check out the article via this link:

San Diego Comic-Con 2014

I’ll be returning to the madness of Comic-Con International in San Diego this week, appearing on three panels and doing a couple of signings. More and more, the real business of the con seems to be conducted away from the convention hall itself, so my public schedule is pretty limited. If you want to catch me at the show, these are your best bet:

Thursday

Noon-1 p.m., signing at Top Cow booth, #2629.

6-7 p.m., Skylanders panel, Room #7AB. I’ll be part of Activision’s Skylanders panel, talking about the forthcoming Skylanders comic series I’m co-writing with Dave Rodriguez for IDW Publishing. At the panel, there’s a Skylanders costume content with more than $5,000 in prizes.

Friday

10:30-11:30 a.m., Edgar Rice Burroughs panel, Room #8. I’m part of the “Tarzan, John Carter of Mars, and Edgar Rice Burroughs: What’s New?” panel, along with Jim Sullos (President, Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc.), Scott Tracy Griffin (Tarzan: The Centennial Celebration), editor Joe Rybandt of Dynamite Entertainment, and artist Diana Leto. I’ll be talking about my work on the weekly strips “Korak the Killer” and “The Mucker” for the ERB website … as well as a new ERB project set to debut later this year.

Saturday

11 a.m.-Noon, Top Cow panel, Room #9. I’ll be talking about my Top Cow projects, including Witchblade, volume 2 of Ravine, and a new project that will be announced at the panel.

12:30-1:30 p.m., signing at Top Cow booth, #2629.

I’m also participating in a Hero Initiative/CGC signing with a number of others pros, including Walter Simonson, Dan Jurgens, Dave Gibbons, Denny O’Neil and many more. Books must be dropped off no later than 5 p.m. Friday at the CGC booth, #901. The cost benefits Hero Initiative. Complete information can be had here:

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


SDCC 2010 Schedule

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
