The summer is almost over, which means it’s time for Canada’s pop culture bonanza, Fan Expo Canada, right here in Toronto on September 3-6 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre! I’ll be at TABLE P34 for the whole show and I’m bringing a ton of books, sketch covers, and other goodies.
A year ago I launched my new creator-owned comic series Wayward at Fan Expo and it was a blast. I’m happy to say that the series is doing well and I’ll have copies of Volume 1 and 2 available at my table along with single issue sets, postcards, and other rarities.
I’ll also have copies of Skullkickers (including pre-release copies of our final volume), Figment, Samurai Jack, Dungeons & Dragons: Legends of Baldur’s Gate and a bunch of my other titles at my table. In fact, here’s a list of items I’ll have available at the show while supplies last.
If you buy any Skullkickers or Wayward at my table you’ll get a special badge flag so you can show off your skullkicking or yokai slaying talents to your friends.
I’ll also have some of the limited edition Skullkickers pins we had made up for Gen Con. They turned out fantastic.
On Friday I’ll also be on two panels:
Friday Sept 4th-4:45-5:30pm-Room 705 Humour in Swords & Sorcery
Description: Can mighty thews and sinister sorcerers be funny? By Crom, they certainly can! Panelists Jonathan Lavallee (Critical!: Go Westerly), Jason Anarchy (Drinking Quest), Rachel Kahn (By Crom), and Jim Zub (Skullkickers) will discuss their particular brand of mirth and myth.
Friday Sept 4th-5:30-6:30pm-Room 714 Writers Workshop Panel
Description: Join Jim Zub (Samurai Jack, Wayward), Charles Soule (Death of Wolverine, Letter 44), Ray Fawkes (Gotham by Midnight, Intersect), and Kathryn Immonen (Journey Into Mystery, Snipe) as they discuss writing and pitching their comic series to publishers. Get their advice on how to climb to the top of the treacherous submission mountain as they share comic writing techniques and amusing anecdotes.
With comics, games, cartoons, toys, and a whole lot more there’s something for everyone at Fan Expo. If you’re headed to the show, please stop by and see me there!
