Image Comics Is Coming To New York Comic Con


Image Comics: Where Creators Own Action
Thursday, October 8
4:15-5:15 p.m.
Location: Room 1A24

There's nothing like the thrill of a well-executed action scene, and no other medium can do what comics can. Ivan Brandon's DRIFTER, Alex de Campi & Carla Speed McNeil's NO MERCY, Nick Dragotta's EAST OF WEST, Matt Hawkins's IXth GENERATION, and Steve Orlando's VIRGIL all feature some impressive action. Where's the line between perfect and gratuitous? Is there a line? More importantly, how do you make entertaining action? Ask the experts.

Image Comics: Where Creators Own Worlds
Friday, October 9
12:15-1:15 p.m.
Location: Room 1A21

The beauty of comics is that they can transport you to another place, if you'll let them. The comics of John Arcudi (RUMBLE), Bryan Edward Hill (POSTAL), Marjorie Liu (MONSTRESS), Declan Shalvey (INJECTION), and Jim Zub (WAYWARD) show us worlds as fantastic as any summer blockbuster, but executed so well that they burn themselves into your memory.

Image Comics: Where Creators Own Reality
Saturday, October 10
4:15-5:15 p.m.
Location: Room 1A24

What makes a weird idea "real?" Brian K. Vaughan & Cliff Chiang (PAPER GIRLS), Jonathan Luna & Sarah Vaughn (ALEX + ADA), and Joe Keatinge & Leila del Duca (SHUTTER) make the fantastic into an everyday affair while never losing sight of the fact that stunning readers is part of the magic of comics. Come see what's so realistic about high-tech love, dark mysteries, and lion-gangsters.

Image Comics: Where Creators Own Craft
Sunday, October 11
1:15-2:15 p.m.
Location: Room 1A21

Comics artists put in a lot of work to get your favorite funnybooks on your bookshelves. What does it take to be a comics artist? How hard is it to create an aesthetic or find your style? Wes Craig (DEADLY CLASS), Shane Davis (AXCEND), Bob Fingerman (MINIMUM WAGE), Jason Latour (SOUTHERN BASTARDS), Riley Rossmo (RASPUTIN), and Matt Wilson (THE WICKED + THE DIVINE) create some of the best comics around, and have the answers you seek.
