San Diego Comic-Con!

From Wednesday, July 20 till Sunday, July 25 I will be in San Diego, CA for Comic-Con International! Here's what I'll be doing while I'm there...

All 5 Days

Flight Booth (#2235) My home base during this show will be the Flight booth, #2235. Come get a hot-off-the-presses copy of the final Flight Anthology, volume 8. While you're there, you can get a signed copy of (Eisner-nominated!) Smile or a shiny copy of Dave's Astronaut Academy. Or, just stop and say hi!

Thursday, July 21

Evening The Bone 20th Anniversary Party! As one of Jeff Smith's fellow Scholastic/Graphix authors, I'll be a guest at this awesome party. If you've got an invite, please come say hello!

Friday, July 22

2-3 PM Cartoon Art Museum Booth (#1930) I'll be sketching requests in exchange for donations to the CAM fund. They're an absolutely wonderful organization, so if you'd like a custom sketch, please consider coming by during this time!

Evening The EISNER AWARDS! Oh man, I'm nerrrrrvous.

Saturday, July 23

3:30-4:30 PM Love & Comics Panel Room 8 Who’s showing the love in comics? Comics creators extraordinaire Jason Shiga (Meanwhile; Empire State), Kazu Kibuishi (Explorer, Amulet, Copper, Flight), Amy Kim Kibuishi (Sorcerers and Secretaries), Raina Telgemeier (Explorer, Smile, The Baby-Sitters Club), and Dave Roman (Explorer, Astronaut Academy, Agnes Quill) talk about how their love of comics plays out in the game of life, about how the collaborative process works, and about their most important pictures from the heart. (I'm going to announce the title of my new book at this panel, so BE THERE if you want to hear about it!!)

Beyond all that...who knows. I might be eating tacos at Tin Fish. Or wandering the looping walkways of the Seaport Village. Or, quite possibly, in the pool at my hotel...all I know is that I love Comic-Con, I love this town, and I can't wait to be there!
