Who’s Attending Comic-Con?

San Diego Comic-ConIt’s so difficult to find folks down at the Comic-Con so here’s a thread where we can do a roll call of animation folk who’ll be attending this year. If you’re on a particular panel or just want to mention that you’ll be in attendance, let us know in this thread. Both Brewmasters Jerry and Amid will be down in San Diego. Say hello if you see us there. This comment thread is ONLY if you want to mention that you’ll be down there next week.

    i’ll definitely be at the animation panels you posted about here on the brew. and i’m always down for hanging out with other disgruntled animators. hopefully i’ll run into some of you!

    All four of us Mukpuddy Animation fellas will be making our way from New Zealand to San Diego. Should be a hoot (except for the long flight). Keen to meet and greet any other industry folk who want to say hi and share stories.

    I’ll be there with my booth buddies Jose Lopez and Patrick Morgan down at Artists Alley at booth H9 along with Ed Acosta, Taesoo Kim, Alberto Ruiz, Stephen Silver and a whole bunch of amazing artists. I’m trying desperately to finish my third sketchbook, “Bits & Pieces, Vol 3″, but my working gig has taken over any available time. Hope I finish, if not, I’ll be there with the first 2 volumes. Hope to see everyone there. Should be quite the party as always!!!

    I’ll be there the whole weekend, but most importantly for Thurdsay night, when my film “American Scary” (a documentary about classic TV horror hosts) will be screening at 7:30pm in the Comic-Con film festival.

    I’ll also probably be around the WizKids booth a lot, as I was one of the artists for the Star Wars Pocketmodel TCG.

    I’ll be at Comic-Con International: San Diego for its entire length, from Preview Night on Wednesday, July 25 (6:00 – 9:00 PM) through Sunday, July 29.

    I’ll be in Exhibit Hall A at Table I-8 (right next to Sergio Aragonés), signing autographs and promoting my upcoming miniseries for DC Comics, CAPTAIN CARROT AND THE FINAL ARC and other projects.

    I’ll also be doing the following two programs, as described in the con’s event guide, both on SATURDAY, JULY 28:

    10:30-12:00 QUICK DRAW! – We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: Quick Draw! is just about the most fun you can have at any comics convention panel. Host Mark Evanier keeps artists Sergio Aragonés, Scott Shaw! and Jeff Smith on their toes through this rollicking cartoon improv event, while you get to see them draw their hearts out live on the big screen. Room 6CDEF

    2:30-4:00 SCOTT SHAW! Presents ODDBALL COMICS – For nearly four decades (!), cartoonist Scott Shaw! (CAPTAIN CARROT AND THE FINAL ARC) has presented his uniquely hilarious slideshow of “the craziest comic books ever publishedâ€? to SRO audiences at Comic-Con. Now seen at http://www.oddballcomics.com and in the pages of GEEK MONTHLY magazine, Scott’s Oddball Comics show features such nutty four-color oddities as ALL-NEGRO COMICS, POPULAR TEEN-AGERS’ “Toni Gay and Butch Dykemanâ€?, IT’S FUN TO STAY ALIVE, “crotch-centricâ€? issues of SUPERMAN’S GIRLFRIEND, LOIS LANE and funnybooks with a “fish-in-the-faceâ€? motif. . . plus, a baker’s dozen of the most notorious Oddball Comics of all time! Don’t dare miss the presentation that Marvel Comics’ Stan Lee calls “the wildest, wackiest exposé of some of the craziest comic books I’ve ever seen!â€? Room 5AB

    I’ll be there for three days. See ya!

  • http://www.shawcartoons.com Scott Shaw!

    Well, I just received some fast-breaking news. Apparently, Jeff Smith is unable to participate in QUICK DRAW!, so Mighty MIKE KAZALEH (of FUTURAMA, REN & STIMPY and THE ADVENTURES OF CAPTAIN JACK funnybook fame, among others) is gonna be the third Quick Drawer in this year’s event — and I have every reason to believe that Mike will be a TOP-DRAWER Quick Drawer!

    This is gonna be FUN, despite the absense of Mssrs. Baker and Smith! If you’ve never seen QUICK DRAW!, don’t miss this year’s bound-to-be-great performance!
