If you’re in Salem tomorrow or Anaheim Friday-Sunday, come see me!
At the Oregon Library Association conference:
Thursday, April 17th
2 – 3:30 PM Graphic Rave & Graphic Reads! In my part of the session I’ll talk about collaborating with Carla Speed McNeil on Bad Houses & show some penciled and inked pages from the book. I’ll especially highlight Carla’s fabulous lettering — she was just nominated for an Eisner Award for Best Letterer!
4 – 5:30 PM Making vs. Crafting — Despite the title this will probably not be a fight between Team Making and Team Crafting. But who knows what might happen?
Directly after those sessions, I’ll drive at breakneck speed from Salem to the Portland Airport so I can make my flight to Anaheim!
I’ll be a special guest at WonderCon, tabling at AA155 and appearing on the following panels:
Friday, April 18
1:30 PM Spotlight on Steve Lieber and Sara Ryan Room 203: WonderCon Anaheim special guests Steve Lieber (Superior Foes of Spider-Man) and Sara Ryan (Bad Houses) discuss creating comics, finding the core of a story, comics versus prose, collaborating while married, and more.
4 PM The New Wave Graphic Novel Room 210A: Jim Di Bartolo (In the Shadows), Steve Lieber (Whiteout), Sara Ryan (Bad Houses), and Gene Luen Yang (The Shadow Hero), all eminent graphic novelists, discuss their own works within the graphic novel form, as well as how today’s increased acceptance of the graphic novel has led to new books, new authors, and new readers. Moderated by WonderCon Anaheim special guest and author Jim Pascoe.
