Using episodes of the iconic ’90s cartoon Batman: The Animated Series, The Arkham Sessions dishes out real knowledge about mental health and mental illness, as they analyze Batman and his infamous Rogues Gallery. Alongside special guest Livio Ramondelli (IDW’s Transformers), this very special panel will take a look at the fan favorite episode “”Over the Edge.””

John Carpenter’s “The Thing” 35th Anniversary Art Book – Filled with art inspired by the film. Join special guests Tim Bradstreet, Cat Staggs, and Stormking Productions’ Sandy King Carpenter as they take a look at some of the art being seen for the first time ever, and talk about their memories of watching John Carpenter’s The Thing.

SATURDAY, APRIL 22

The integration of social media into society has completely changed how people communicate with each other, and the comics industry is not invulnerable to this change.

SUNDAY, APRIL 23
1:15–2:15 p.m. Panel Room S403 The Un-CONventional Superheroes

For decades, popular culture has been dominated by stories from superhero comic books. Most people can’t think of either superheroes or comics without thinking of the other. In recent years, Dark Horse creators have sought to pay homage to superheroes while also putting a modern spin on the idea of heroics. Join Jim Calafiore (Leaving Megalopolis), Kristen Gudsnuk (Henchgirl), and Jeff Lemire (Black Hammer) for a lively conversation about superheroes and antiheroes in the modern era and how their characters seek to challenge society’s perceptions of the superhero.

RALPH MACCHIO started out in commercials before his regular appearance on “Eight is Enough”. His career also took a jump after his appearance as “Johnny Cade” in the film “The Outsiders”. He went on to star in his most memorable role as “Daniel” in “The Karate Kid” series of films. He also starred in “Teachers”, “Crossroads”, “My Cousin Vinny”, and more recently had a recurring role on “Ugly Betty. He also joined the hit reality show “Dancing with the Stars” in 2011.
