The San Diego Comic Con has posted its daily schedules – and if you are going to the Con and want to see me you’ll have ample opportunity. Right now I’m set to be at the Insight Editions (booth #2913) on Friday 10:30-11:30am and Saturday from 2:00-3:00pm signing The 100 Greatest Looney Tunes Cartoons book. This will be the best place to talk to me personally, especially if you have any questions about my various doings, including future DVDs and book projects and if, for some-unknown-reason, you want my autograph.
On Friday afternoon I’ll be moderating a special panel: Peanuts Turns 60 from 2:00-3:00pm in Room 25ABC. Panelists will include Comic-Con special guest Jeannie Schulz (widow of Peanuts creator Charles Schulz), Andy Beall (fix animation lead for Ratatouille, Wall-E, UP), Stephan Pastis (creator of Pearls Before Swine) and others. We’ll take an in-depth look at the work of Charles M. Schulz and get a sneak peek of an all-new animation project from Warner Premiere.
And on Friday night, I’ll be screening my all-new edition of Worst Cartoons Ever at 9pm in Room 6BCF. In addition to fresh episodes of old favorites like Mighty Mr. Titan, Paddy Pelican and Johnny Cypher In Dimension Zero, I’ll be screening new finds like The Magic Of Oz (the worst Wizard of Oz cartoon you’ve never seen) and Bat Beagle (a newly unearthed Sam Singer monstrosity).
I’ll do another post closer to the Con to plug the various panels I hope to attend (if I can get in) and booths worth checking out in the exhibit hall (if I can squeeze through the aisles). (Note: Attending any panel moderated by Mark Evanier is highly recommended). In the meantime, start setting your convention plans now by consulting the full schedule of events for Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
