NYCC 2015 Friday Panels – Our Picks!...

Written by David Henehan. Welcome to Day 2 of NYCC. You made it through Thursday, the day of NYCC that is least packed, in terms of both attendance and what creators are there, but now it’s Friday! More people at the Javits Center! More panels! That said, there seem to be less MUST ATTEND panels than Thursday. BUT the good Friday panels are AWESOME Friday panels, which is going to make for some hard choices when it comes to time conflicts. DC Comics – The Dark Knight 30th Anniversary – 11:00-12:00 Main Stage 1-D Wow, talk about a star-studded panel. Jim Lee, Klaus Jansen, Andy Kubert, Brian Azzarello and surprise guests. Could the surprise guests possibly be Scott Snyder and Frank Miller?! What do you think? (Wristband required) Dark Horse: CLASSIFIED – 11:00-12:00 1A21 Dark Horse lost the Star Wars license at the end of 2014. What would have been a mortal blow to another company inspired this company to really go all out in producing new quality product. Dark Horse has long been a home of great independent work and licensed comics. With the loss of their biggest license, they doubled down on the creator owned titles, giving us such gems as Brian Wood’s Rebels. Wood will be at this panel, as will Matt Kindt, Mike Richardson and more. Come here to see what Dark Horse has planned for 2016. Dan Parent Drawing Workshop – 11:00-12:00 Family HQ 1C01 Here’s a fun one to bring the kids. Dan Parent of Archie Comics will be hosting a drawing workshop. Learn how to draw your Archie faves. YogaQuest: Narrated Yogic Adventures – 1:15-2:15 Family HQ 1C04 “A mix of yoga and fan-fiction storytelling.” Okay, you’ve piqued my interest. Hmm, maybe this is the day I’ll...

NYCC 2014 – Friday Panel Guide...

As I mentioned in our Thursday Panel Guide, there are a lot of panels at NYCC this year. On Friday, the panels get into full swing. There are bound to be time conflicts and hard decisions to make. To ease the process, here are our picks for the can’t-miss panels of Friday! 12:00 PM – 12:45 PM – Voice Acting Master Class With Andrea Romano – 1A10 Did I read that right? A voice acting class with Andrea Romano, the casting director behind pretty much every DC animated project since Batman: The Animated Series? Yes. Please. 12:15 PM – 1:00 PM – Image Comics: I is for Infinite – 1A14 Attention Scott Snyder fans! He’ll be talking about his non-Batman work at this panel. As will Kieron Gillen. Hmmm, I wonder if Jamie McKelvie will show up. It just makes sense to have both creators from The Wicked + The Divine there. 1:45 PM – 2:45 PM – Harry Potter NYC Presents The Art of Wand Dueling – Family HQ 1C04 Wand dueling. It’s like lightsaber fighting, but with less clashing of sticks and more pointing at each other while yelling, right? On the one hand, I can’t see this being as exciting as learning to have a lightsaber duel, but then again, I know for a fact that pointing at people and yelling “Expelliarmus!” is a run way to pass an afternoon. 2:30 PM – 5:00 PM – [adult swim] Panel Block – Main Stage 1-D All of [adult swim]’s panels in one handy block. Note: they will NOT be clearing the room between each panel in the [adult swim] block, so if you want to go to any of them, you may want to show up early and grab a seat for...

2011 New York Comic Con: Thursday & Friday Panels Oct08

2011 New York Comic Con: Thursday & Friday Panels...

Unless I get my hands on a time turner, there’s no way I’m making it to every panel on this list. But here are the ones that I think look cool. Thursday: My pass doesn’t get me through the door on Thursday until 4 PM and all but one panel happen before that time. If you’re interested in working in 3D, the one panel after 4 PM is the panel for you, otherwise… Friday: 10:45 AM – 11:45 AM – Zombies, Fallen Angels and Other Paranormals Give New Meaning To I don’t actually have much interest in this panel, but damn it, they’ve piqued my curiosity by not telling us what zombies, fallen angels and other paranormals give new meaning to! I suddenly need to know! It could be anything! For all I know the answer is Sour Patch Kids! Sure, it’s probably not Sour Patch Kids, but I’ll never know unless I go. I hope they give out free Sour Patch Kids. 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM – Locke & Key Pilot Screening Competing with finding out what zombies give new meaning to is the Locke & Key Pilot screening. Word on the street is that it is good. If I make it to this, expect a review on the blog. 12:45 PM – 1:15 PM  – Wand Dueling I’m heading to a Harry Potter themed costume party later this month. This panel might give me the skills I need to take home the party’s Tri-Wizard Cup. This should be interesting. When Star Wars fans have lightsaber battles, they’re basically sword fighting. But is this just going to involve people 20 feet apart pointing at each other? 1:15 PM – 2:15 PM – DC ALL ACCESS: Batman Last month, DC Comics relaunched all of...
