Holy Rose City Batman! I’m back in Portland for third Rose City Comic Con and really looking forward to the amazing conversations, cosplay and meeting fans. This comic and artist focused con has been one of my favorites over the years! I love talking to artists about their creative process, inspirations and challenges of success (and failure) in the pop culture industry. My schedule:
2:30 Stan Sakai: Cartoonist and comic book creator. He is best known as the creator of the comic series Usagi Yojimbo.
3:30 Amanda Connor & Jimmy Palmiotti; Artist, writers, editor and married dynamic duo. Worked on Marvel, DC, Harris Comics, Dark Horse and almost every superhero out there!
4:30 Terry Moore: cartoonist, known for the series Strangers in Paradise and the founding of Homage Comics.
5:30 Dustin Nguyen: Artist who has worked for DC Comics and WildStorm since 2000. Outside of comics, Dustin is also known as a conceptual artist for toys, games, and animation
10:30 Cullen Bunn: Writer, novelist, and short story writer. He is best known for his work on comic books such as his Uncanny X-Men and various Deadpool miniseries for Marvel Comics.
11:30 David Finch: Artist for Top Cow Productions’ Cyberforce, as well as for Marvel Comics and DC Comics.
12:30 Terry Dodson: Artist and penciller. He is best known for his work on titles such as Harley Quinn, Trouble, Marvel Knights Spider-Man, Wonder Woman and Uncanny X-Men.
