As I mentioned in my previous post, I will be at Wizard World’s Portland Comics Convention this coming Friday, Saturday and Sunday, signing books, selling original art and meeting fans (mostly other people’s, but I’m happy to say hello to anyone). I’m also booked for a panel this Saturday on Independent Comics, moderated by the esteemed writer and editor Danny Fingeroth, and with a truly stellar lineup of my fellow creators: Mike Allred, Shannon Wheeler, and Jonathan Hill.

SATURDAY JAN 25
3:00 – 3:45PM TITANS OF INDEPENDENT COMICS WITH MIKE ALLRED, SHANNON WHEELER, DAVID CHELSEA AND JONATHAN HILL
The model of comics creators, tethered to one or two major publishers, working on adventures of corporately-owned characters is no longer the only game in town. Many of the top talents in comics work either exclusively on their own material, while others work both sides of the street, alternating independent work with mainstream assignments done in their own unique styles. Here, speaking about how they have forged their own paths, are some of the most distinctive creators in comics today: Mike Allred (Madman; X-Statix,) Shannon Wheeler (Too Much Coffee Man; Villain House,) David Chelsea (David Chelsea in Love; Everybody Gets It Wrong!,) and Jonathon Hill (One of the Johns; Americus.) The panel is moderated by Danny Fingeroth (Rough Guide to Graphic Novels.) (C120)
I am flattered indeed to be called a Titan of Independent Comics; Titan is my second-favorite moon (after our own) and The Sirens Of Titan is my second favorite Vonnegut novel (after Cat’s Cradle).
