Friday at NYCC 2012 Planning Guide...

Friday is the first full day of NYCC. If you can get out of your day job, I highly recommend going on Friday. You won’t face anything near the large crowds of Saturday and you’ll have much more programming options than Thursday. Friday is the sweet spot on the NYCC baseball bat. 10:00 AM – 7:00 PM Celebrity AutographingIf you’re interested in meeting Adam West, Burt Ward, Tom Felton, Sean Astin, Peter Davison, Lou Ferrigno or Christopher Lloyd, they’ll all be signing autographs today. Costs vary by person. For example, Batman’s signature is $10 more than Robin’s. 11:00 AM  – 12:00 PM CBLDF: The History of Comics CensorshipAttention all Media Studies majors! 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM Wondrous Worlds, Fractured Futures: Speculative Fiction and Image ComicsA few years ago, I saw Brian K. Vaughn speak with JMS, Colleen Doran and Jeff Smith at a panel called World Building. Brian K. Vaughn quipped that the comics he was writing both took place in New York City, so he wasn’t sure why he was invited to the panel. His new comic with Fiona Staples, Saga, takes place far, far away from New York City. This is a can’t miss panel for fans of what Image Comics is doing right now. 11:15 AM – 12:15 PM Marvel: House of IdeasThe focus of this panel is on Marvel’s digital comics offerings: Infinite Comics, Marvel.com and the Marvel mobile app. Oddly, Mark Waid will also be on this panel. Not sure what that’s about. Maybe a digital Daredevil exclusive? 11:15 AM – 12:30 PM Comics, Hollywood – What Creators Need to KnowThinking about turning that spec script you wrote into a graphic novel? Thinking about trying to sell your graphic novel as a feature? This may be the panel for you. 12:15...
