Lion Forge and Oni Press have announced their joint NYCC ’19 schedule, showing off how the pair is planning to live up to the brand of “comics for everyone.” Not only will the publishers bring on creators for signings, they’ll also host a selection of giveaways and programming for this year’s con.

Notably, the inimitable Twitter master Gail Simone will make an appearance on Thursday from 3-4pm as she signs Catalyst Prime: Seven Days, then on Friday she’s joined by Mags Visaggio and Kris Anka – but that’s far from the complete list.

As far as events go, Lion Forge and Oni have a variety of activities on their schedule, including a panel for the witchiest comics and their creators as well as a live play Dungeons and Dragons session, hosted by DM and Rick & Morty vs. D&D writer Jim Zub.
