My Portland Comic Con Panels


hero

To kick off a new year of cons, my first stop is Portland Comic Con! I love this city and the community- and I’m super excited to be among fellow Oregon fans, artist, and cosplayers. It’s such an honor to work with the Wizard World team and to participate in a few panels. I’ll have a chance to facilitate discussions about multiethnic heroes, Doctor Who, and to have one-on-ones with Yaphet Kotto, Alan Tudyk and Stephen Amell. It’s gonna be a great con and I hope to see you out there. Here are the panels I am moderating- leave a comment if you have a question for me to ask!

  1. Hey Tony! I know it’s early but be sure to use your Wizard World connections and request to moderate and come out to the inaugural Wizard World in San Jose in early September! You got too! It’s only a 7 hour commute or 1 hour plane ride!!

  2. You did a fantastic job moderating the Stephen Amelll panel. You kept the conversation going and had a nice mix of questions from you and the fans. I love when the moderator has control of the room like you so clearly did! A+

    • That is super kind of you! It was a blast and Stephen was genuinely a cool guy on stage and off. Glad you enjoyed it and i hope you loved your time at PCC. Thx for commenting!
