HEROESCON :: Schedule Additions A-Go-Go!

Very exciting! Just up on our Event Schedule page, the first of numerous planned additions to our HeroesCon 08 schedule! This may be very exciting to you, but it's got me ready to pee my pants with excitement--this is a really great side-effect of being so far ahead of the game this year (the schedule, not the peeing). Being able to list and talk about our schedule all year means a higher quality of panel and I hope much higher attendance for each panel, which is just more fun for everybody.

But enough about how excited I am--two big announcements today, first that once again this year we're partnering with the Savannah College of Art and Design's Sequential Art department for a series of workshops free to HeroesCon attendees! There will be two each day, approximately two hours each, each focusing on a different facet of sequential art. These workshops were a big hit last year, and it looks like this year will be even bigger! More information to be announced on specific workshops.

Also new today is the addition of "Drawing Green Lantern Then & Now: A Back Issue Live Pro2Pro Interview"; as it says, this is a three-way interview between past and present Green Lantern artists including Alex Saviuk, Joe Staton, and Ethan Van Sciver, moderated by Back Issue editor Michael Eury. Even cooler is that this interview will run in the magazine in their November issue!

Stay tuned for more updates on the schedule--we're putting together some pretty exciting panels this week, which we'll be announcing as soon as we have all the details squared away!

That's pretty cool. I love "Back Issue." It's like VH1's "Behind the Music" without the inevitable down-n-out/depressing/drugged-out-of-their-minds phase of the episode.

I think we should have the Savannah School judge all of the Quick Draws as well-- it would bring the entire concept full circle, me thinks...

It definitely would save you time running up and down the stairs, Andy. Although the way it's scheduled, SCAD will have the room all day, UNTIL the Quickdraw. So by the time you get there, it'll be empty, and they'll be gone. This isn't to say that they wouldn't be good to judge, but they'd be downstairs with everybody else by then.

It's nice to see my School coming back again. I covered last years workshops for the Pulse and it was a blast.

Hopefully they'll get a good turnout again this year.
