Zub at San Diego Comic Con 2022

I wasn’t originally planning to be at San Diego Comic Con this year, but a few new project announcements, panels, and meetings have pulled me into the vortex. Fun times ahead.

Here’s where you’ll definitely see me at the show –

12:30pm – 1:30pm – Conan the Barbarian 90th Anniversary – Room 24ABC

Matt Murray (editor, Heroic Signatures), Steve Saffel (editor, Titan Books), Jim Zub (writer, Conan the Barbarian, Dungeons & Dragons) and other panelists discuss Conan’s lasting impact and offer revelations on what’s yet to come, including the Netflix project in development, a new era for the comics, and Conan: Blood of the Serpent by NYT bestselling author S. M. Stirling.

3:30pm – 4:30pm – Tabletop RPGs and the Shared Story Experience – Room 26AB
Let’s talk about how TTRPGs are delivering an all-new way to share stories. Tabletop RPGs have experienced unprecedented growth with new players who are discovering the joys of adventuring together and experiencing stories together. RPGs are a new form of storytelling that land differently from traditional media. Panelists include Ajit A. George (Journeys Through the Radiant Citadel, Ravenloft), Whitney “Strix” Beltran (Hidden Path Entertainment, Bluebeards Bride), John Nee (Marvel RPG, DC Comics, Marvel Comics, Cryptozoic), Matt Forbeck (Marvel RPG, Marvel Encyclopedia, Deadlands RPG), Matt Fantastic (Forever Stoked Creative, Game Designer), and Jon Ritter-Roderick (Kickstarter).

Zub at Montreal Comiccon 2022

This weekend I’m back at Montreal Comiccon, my first time at the show since 2015. Stacy and I will be set up at BOOTH 2729! Come on by with your books to get signed or you can pick up some we’ll be bringing from home.

2:00p – Sunday, July 10

516A : Salle de Conférence 3
This is the perfect opportunity to hear creators talk about your favourite comic books and their experiences in the business, their current or upcoming projects, and perhaps even some never heard before anecdotes. It’s a great opportunity to ask questions and be entertained in person by your favourite creators.

Zub at TCAF 2022!

After two years dormant, the Toronto Comic Arts Festival is back! TCAF is a wonderful comic and graphic novel event happening at the Toronto Reference Library that’s FREE to attend!

On both Saturday and Sunday Stacy and I will be set up on the second floor salon at TABLE 238 with copies of Rick and Morty VS Dungeons & Dragons, the D&D Young Adventurer’s Guides, the new Skullkickers Kickstarter book, and more! You can purchase those to get signed or bring any of my other books on by to get signed as well.

I’m also doing two panels over the weekend, one for the Word Balloon Academy online material and another on site:

Friday, June 17th 2:30 PM – 4:00 PM
DIGITAL PANEL: Whose IP is it anyway? (Livestreamed on site)
Featuring: Vanessa Stefaniuk, Megan Kearney, Ryan North, and Jim Zub
From Dungeons & Dragons to Disney Princesses, artists of all stripes can make a career working in established IP. Artists discuss how to get into existing IP projects and their experiences in this hybrid, live-streamed panel in the creative stream.
Location: Novella

Sunday, June 19th 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM
Adventuretime (Not the Show)

Come grab your friends to talk about adventure! From escaping rolling boulders to swashbuckling on the high seas, there are a million different configurations of action set pieces and adventure storytelling. Join an incredible line up of creators, Terry Dodson (AdventureMan), Jim Zub (Dungeons & Dragons, Wayward), Sweeney Boo (Over My Dead Body, Marvel Action), and Henry Brajas (Helm Greycastle), as they discuss how comics make the best action and how to make the best action in comics.
Location: Toronto Reference Library, Hinton Learning Theatre

If you’re in the city over the weekend I hope to see you there!

Zub at Fan Expo 2021 Limited Edition This Weekend!

After more than two years away from conventions, I’m back this weekend at Fan Expo Canada!
I’ll be set up at ARTIST ALLEY TABLE P48.

My wedding anniversary is on Saturday, so I won’t be there all day, but otherwise you should be able to find me at Fan Expo throughout most of the show on Friday and Sunday. I’m not doing any panels or other events, just hanging tight at my table when I’m not saying “hi” to friends or grabbing a quick bite.

If you’re able to make it to the convention, it would be great to see you there.

Here’s the show floor map-
