1:30 – 2:30 Panel – RevolutiONIzing Comics (Panel Room 1Ao8)
This year Oni Press is making the “call-your-mom”, “blow-your-mind” type of announcements as we celebrate our fifteenth year of publishing. With special guests Cullen Bunn (Sixth Gun), Ananth Panagariya (Johnny Wander), Chad Bowers (Awesome Hospital), Chris Sims (Comics Alliance), Joe Harris (Ghost Projekt) and more! Moderated by the most awesomest marketing coordinator you’ll ever meet, Tom Shimmin. Get an exclusive look at the top-secret projects that are coming up in 2013!

Listen closely as creators Cullen Bunn (The Sixth Gun), Ray Fawkes (One Soul), Charles Soule (27), Justin Jordan (Luther Strode) and moderator Jim Zub (Skullkickers) discuss pitching their hit comic series to publishers and offer advice on how to climb to the top of the treacherous submission mountain, along with comic writing techniques and amusing anecdotes.

I’ll be heading to Springfield, Missouri, in a few days to attend VisionCon. I’ve been to at least half of the 20 VisionCons over the year, and it’s always nice to visit my old Springfield stomping grounds. Will I be heading to McSalty’s Pizza? Probably. Will I have breakfast at Anton’s? If at all possible. Will I have a monster-size margarita at Cielito Lindo? Do you have to ask?
I’ll be bringing a ton of books with me. If you’re looking for copies of The Sixth Gun, The Tooth, Fear Itself: The Fearless, or Crooked Hills, this’ll be the perfect chance to pick them up! In addition, I’ll be participating in a couple of panels:
Inspiration For Comics – (with Gerry Kissell) – Saturday, Noon. Panel Room 2
Comics Discussion – (with Jolly and Barb Blackburn, and Gerry Kissell) – Saturday, 1:00. Panel Room 1
