Help Daniel Go To KCON!

Hello y’all, I usually post about comic books and what not but this time I’m asking a very special favor of you to help me win a VIP ticket to KCON.

What is KCON you ask? An upcoming k-pop convention and concert on August 24th/25th featuring some of the coolest acts out right now.

Please, if you have a few spare moments, click the link and like my photo!

Image Comics Schedule

The Image Comics/Skybound booth (#2729) at Comic-Con International will be a hub of signing activity, as nearly sixty comic book creators will sit down to meet and greet their fans at the San Diego event, taking place from July 18 through July 21. Just across the aisle, the Image Comics imprint Top Cow booth (#2629) will also be hosting writers and artists, and Top Cow President Matt Hawkins will be conducting portfolio review sessions for aspiring artists.

Image’s Comic-Con signing roster includes Image partner and THE WALKING DEAD creator Robert Kirkman, SAGA co-creator/writer and Eisner nominee Brian K. Vaughan, HAPPY! creative team Grant Morrison and Darick Robertson, and three more Eisner nominees — Ed Brubaker (FATALE), Nick Pitarra (THE MANHATTAN PROJECTS), and Teddy Kristiansen (THE RE[AD] DIARY). Rick Remender, whose two new upcoming Image projects, BLACK SCIENCE and DEADLY CLASS, were announced at Image Expo at the beginning of the month, will also be sitting down for signings with members of those two titles’ creative teams. Three Image Comics founders will be signing — SAVAGE DRAGON creator Erik Larsen and Top Cow Productions CEO and founder Marc Silvestri (both of whom are current Image partners), and Whilce Portacio (NON-HUMANS).

The full signing schedule for Image Comics, Skybound, and Top Cow follows. Please note that the schedule is subject to change and some signings, marked with an asterisk below, will be ticketed. Robert Kirkman’s Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday signings will require a bracelet that Comic-Con will distribute in the Sail Pavilion High Profile ticket line, starting each day 9 a.m.

It’s that time of the year again! Put the finishing touches on your cosplay outfit and grab your deodorant because San Diego Comic-Con is here! TOP COW is celebrating its 21st anniversary with numerous signings, portfolio reviews, Comic-Con Exclusives, exciting news about upcoming projects throughout various Medias, and giving much deserved appreciation to the fans that have kept our company alive and kicking to this day.

Cosplayers! Don’t forget that if you are dressed as one of our characters, stop by our booth (#2629) to get your photo taken, for the chance to appear in an upcoming Top Cow comic book. Writers and artists, details of our TOP COW 2013 TALENT HUNT will be announced at our 21 YEARS OF TOP COW PANEL on Saturday, July 20, from 11am-Noon in Room 9!

Our “Mad Scientist” artist himself, all the way from Croatia, Stjepan Sejic makes his return to SDCC, having not been in attendance since 2009! He and writer Matt Hawkins will be meeting and greeting fans at the Top Cow Booth, signing and sketching, along with returning Witchblade writer, Ron Marz! The legendary Marc Silvestri will be in attendance as well, sketching a very limited number per day, along with Stjepan. This means, if you want a sketch from the two immensely talented artists, the ONLY way for you to get one is to set your thrusters to “turbo” and haul butt over to our booth (again, #2629) early each morning to purchase one of these super limited sketch covers.

If all of this is too much information, then expand your mind by picking up the ultra-limited THINK TANK Volume 1 Hardcover. WARNING: Reading this book WILL make you smarter! We were only able to smuggle 1,000 of these out from the Pentagon, with the first 100 fans treated to an added bonus of a limited edition book plate inside! And be sure to visit the booth after you pick yours up to get Matt Hawkins and artist Rahsan Ekedal to sign it.

For those fans attending our Top Cow Panel, celebrating 21 years with us, be sure to arrive early! Available to only the first 200 attendees is a limited edition mini-lithograph featuring the amazing and beautiful artwork of Marc Silvestri, Rahsan Ekedal, and Stjepan Sejic! Everyone there will also be privy to some really great announcements about the future of Top Cow, including movie, comic, and videogame news!
