New York Comic-Con has announced its programming for the Feb 6-8 show. There’s lots to like, with a lot of diversity and variety among the topics. The major film and TV programming will be unveiled closer to the show date. We’re scheduled for two panels:
The Beat Presents The Art of Storytelling
Sunday 11:15 AM – 12:15 PM 1A06
As comics have become a more influential part of pop culture, their stories and characters are known more widely than ever. Step inside the minds of some of the comic biz’s best storytellers to find out how they approach their craft and shape their visions to create their best known works. Moderated by Heidi MacDonald, with Jim Lee, Marv Wolfman, and more.
Lilly Renee Phillips Spotlight
Sunday 1:45 PM-2:45 PM
Lily Renee Phillips was one of the pioneer women cartoonists in the Golden Age of Comics, working primarily for Fiction House publishers. Fleeing Nazi Germany to America as a child, she went on to draw covers and such features as The Lost World, Senorita Rio, and Werewolf Hunters for Planet Comics, Rangers Comics, and Fight Comics. With her then-husband Eric Peters, she also drew covers and interior stories for a number of Abbott & Costello Comics. Phillips talks about her amazing life and career with Heidi MacDonald (The Beat).
Both of which we’re very, very excited about! In fact we’re super-excited about New York Comic-Con, since it will be here in about five minutes and so will just about everyone we know.
