NYCC 2013: Thursday Panel & Screening HIghlights...

Unless you have an Exhibitor or Pro Pass, New York Comic Con opens for you at 3 PM on Thursday, October 10. Thursday will be the least crowded day of the con, since it’s open only to people with 4-Day Passes and people who specifically bought Thursday passes. Because of this, Thursday is a great day to nab the hotter con exclusives or meet your favorite creator. Just be sure to check the NYCC website to make sure that creator is there that day. The Panel and Screenings schedule is pretty light on Thursday, but there are definitely some that are worth checking out. 3:15 – 4:15 – Comixology Submit: The Future of Self Publishing – 1A08 3:15 – 4:15 – Protect It and Publish It: Creating and Protecting Your Comic Book Property – 1A03 If you’re interested in creating your own comics, Thursday has some panels aimed right at you. Unfortunately, these two conflict directly with each other. Fortunately, they’re close enough to each other that you could pop into one at the start and move to the other later. Comixology is the giant in the room when it comes to digital distribution, but if your concerns are more legal in nature, you may want to hit up the Protect It and Publish It panel. 3:15 – 4:15 – Women in Comics – 1A15 This looks like it will be an interesting discussion regarding female protagonists in comics. Plus, Becky Cloonan will be there. 3:45 – 4:45 – DC Comics 101: Essentials – 1A06 Or…”We’re not just the New 52! Promise!” Going by the description of this panel, it looks like it’s DC pitching you its back list. 3:45 – 4:45 – 60 Years of Bazooka Joe – 1A01 Anyone else think the...

Spike Lee’s Kickstarter Jul31

Spike Lee’s Kickstarter...

Filmmaker Spike Lee is the latest celebrity to turn to Kickstarter to fund his new project, a currently untitled movie going by the working title of The Newest Hottest Spike Lee Joint for the purposes of the Kickstarter. What’s really cool about the campaign is Spike’s level of sharing with his donors. There have been 14 updates in the 10 days the campaign has been active. Some are videos of actors showing support. But he’s also posting some very cool stuff there too, like his Essential List of Films for Filmmakers. I contributed a ten spot to the campaign. This nets me an autographed Malcolm X Production Crew Patch if the Kickstarter gets funded. Spike is currently at $478,000 towards his goal of $1,250,000 Mine! Spike has opened the vault when it comes to donor prizes. Besides the afformentioned Malcolm X patch, there’s a signed 40 Acres and a Mule patch (for half the price of the Malcolm X patch!), signed movie posters, signed postcards from Spike Lee’s movies and more. It was interesting to see the posters priced at different price levels. It makes sense; the demand for Inside Man is probably much higher than the demand for Red Hook Summer. I’m tempted to contribute on a second Kickstarter¬† account just to get this signed 40 Acres patch. If there was an award for Best Kickstarter Copy, it would definitely go to Spike’s plea for $10,000 pledges, which reads: This Award Is For All Playa-Playas. For 10 Grand I’m Taking You to Dinner, Then You Will Have The Honor And Privilege To Sit Next To Me (IN MY WIFE’S TONYA’S SEAT) COURTSIDE – FRONT ROW IN THE BEST SEAT IN THE HOUSE AT THE WORLD’S MOST FAMOUS ARENA – MADISON SQUARE GARDEN TO...
