So who is excited for the New York Comic Con?????? I am!!!! I am!!!!! Especially since I keep getting email updates about added guests and panels. I just might attend my VERY FIRST PANEL.
Okay, not the first. An old boyfriend took me to the uber exclusive DC Universe panel in 2009. Not being a DC reader (especially at the time) I would have gladly given this opportunity away to one of the fans denied entry in heartbeat except this panel ran after the NYCC hours. So instead of sitting around with a loads of swag I chose to go. Even I was irritated with some of the fans there that kept asking DC creators about Marvel. Not cool, I say.
So I received an email about some of the panel additions. Normally, I am not a panel person. I am not in the industry and I don't enjoy spoilers or too much hype. So panels about writing good stories, digital painting techniques, or a new comic event are not for me. However, Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark panel is COMPLETELY up my alley! So excited!
They also updated the guest list. Here are some of the people I am excited to see for the first time (in addition to my usual favorites):
Jim Lee (I actually have met Jim Lee before, but at the time I had not read a book with his work)
Micheal Dooney (loving his artwork right now)
Its such a large list of people and I will be busy most of the time but I am excited for these five plus the fabulous Zenescope Crew whom I get to call my friends these days. There are quite a few artists that I have seen in some time coming back as well. This is going to be fun!
I will definitely be needing the extra day off of work afterwards....
So who are you looking forward to seeing? Any one special?
