PANELS HOSTED BY IMAGE COMICS:

THURSDAY, JULY 21
Comics in #YourIMAGE: Creating the Zeitgeist, 2:00p.m. - 3:00p.m., Room: 23ABC


Comics are more popular than ever, and it's all thanks to creators who are bringing their passions, interests, and original ideas to the medium. Chynna Clugston Flores (BLUE MONDAY), Kieron Gillen (THE WICKED + THE DIVINE), Marjorie Liu (MONSTRESS), Joshua Williamson of NAILBITER, and Jason Latour and Jason Aaron of SOUTHERN BASTARDS are making comics cooler, story by story.

FRIDAY, JULY 22
Comics in #YourIMAGE: Defining New Worlds, 11:00a.m. - 12:00p.m., Room: 23ABC


Comics are capable of anything, if you give them a chance. Joe Harris & Kelly Fitzpatrick are creating near-future sci-fi in SNOWFALL, Chris Burnham showed us a vision of hellish horror in NAMELESS, Ivan Brandon brought us a sci-fi/western advenure in DRIFTER, and Steven Seagle & Jason Katzenstein brought us an all-ages monster-themed coming-of-age tale in CAMP MIDNIGHT. They create new worlds that readers fall into and love forever, and they share their expertise here.

SATURDAY, JULY 23
Comics in #YourIMAGE: Riffing on Reality, 1:00 - 2:00p.m., Room: 7AB


Works don't have to be completely realistic to feel real—sometimes just dipping a toe in reality and then taking off in another direction will do the job. Rick Remender co-creates SEVEN TO ETERNITY, Brian Schirmer co-creates BLACK JACK KETCHUM, Caitlin Kittredge writes THROWAWAYS, and Matt Fraction scripts ODY-C & SEX CRIMINALS. These creators and our special guests take something we know well and then throw a monkey wrench into the works, creating something familiar, but innovative, at the same time.

SUNDAY, JULY 24
Comics in #YourIMAGE: Tomorrow's Comics Today, Sunday, 7/24/16, 2:00 - 3:00p.m., Room: 7AB


What do mainstream comics look like? What appeals to "the average reader"? Cliff Chiang (PAPER GIRLS), Bryan Lee O'Malley & Leslie Hung (SNOTGIRL), Jamie McKelvie (THE WICKED + THE DIVINE), Brandon Thomas (HORIZON), and Jim Zub (WAYWARD) are making books that appeal to anyone and everyone, and redefining the idea of mainstream comics in the process.

SIGNINGS* HOSTED AT IMAGE COMICS BOOTH (#2729):
* wristbands will be available for fans to pick as soon as doors open, first come, first served, at the Image booth on the day of the desired ticketed signing.
