John Byrne Makes Special Appearance at NYCC 2017

Press Release:

Jack Kirby wasn’t an ordinary comic-book creator, and it’s perhaps only the occasion of The King of Comics’ 100th birthday celebration this year that could get John Byrne to rescind his retirement from comic conventions to make a special appearance at New York Comic Con 2017 in October.

John Byrne did appear at two Star Trek 50th anniversary conventions in 2016 but had retired from comic cons following the Mid-Ohio Con in 2004. But Byrne agreed to attend the New York Comic Con for the chance to sit alongside fellow Eisner Hall of Fame creator Walter Simonson on a special panel discussing the enduring legacy of Jack Kirby.

IDW Publishing’s President Greg Goldstein and CCO Chris Ryall will host the panel, as a dynamic slideshow of more than 1,300 pieces of original Kirby art plays in the background — the largest public showing of Kirby originals ever. The special draw, however, is the two titanic creators who have both put together sustained and acclaimed runs of comics created or co-created by Jack Kirby.

“I know John [Byrne] forever swore off comic cons, but let’s not remind him of that!” said Ryall, IDW’s Chief Creative Officer and Byrne’s editor for the last twelve years. “Really, though, the chance to publicly talk up the impact Kirby’s work had on his own career was the lure for John, and being able to do so alongside his close friend and fellow legend Walter Simonson only helped seal the deal.”

The panel will take place on Friday, October 6 from 1:45pm-2:45pm in Room 1A21 and all in attendance will walk away with a Jack Kirby-related giveaway.

“The Kirby 100 panel that we presented at SDCC this past July was completely standing room only, with many people unable to fit in the room,” said Goldstein. “So I’d recommend getting to this one early to ensure you get a seat.”

Following the panel, Byrne will make his way to the IDW Booth #1844 for a special two-hour signing, from 3:30pm-5:30pm.

Byrne’s signing will be a ticketed event. Tickets will be distributed on Friday morning to the first 100 fans to purchase a special con-exclusive version of his long-running series of Star Trek photoplays, Star Trek: New Visions 18: “What a Pain it is to Drown.” This convention-exclusive item will feature a special Byrne-themed photo cover! (And if you aren’t one of the first 100 people, don’t completely fret, because Byrne will accommodate as many standbys as time allows, too.)

Because Byrne’s signings are a very rare thing now, IDW will make every effort to accommodate as many fans as possible while maintaining an orderly and professional experience. To that end, Byrne will be unable to sketch in anyone’s books. And each attendee of the signing will be limited to a maximum of three items; the first two must be IDW books or comics and the third item can be a non-IDW item.

Walter Simonson will also be appearing at IDW’s booth throughout the convention, with signing times and dates to follow shortly.

Press Release:

Additionally, Jones and Yost will join Mighty Morphin Power Rangers comic book writer Kyle Higgins for the “Go Go Power Rangers Comics” panel on Thursday, October 5 at 4:15pm in Room 1A24 of the Javits Center, along with other special guests. The panel will be moderated by journalist James Viscardi (ComicBook.com).

“2018 will be the biggest year of Power Rangers comics ever, so it’s only appropriate to have legends like David and Walter join us to help reveal BOOM Studios’ plans,”  says BOOM! Studios Managing Editor Bryce Carlson, who will also appear on the “Go Go Power Rangers Comics” panel. “We’re thrilled fans can join us to meet David, Walter, and comic series writer Kyle Higgins all weekend long at our booth, along with getting the first crack at some morphinominal exclusive merchandise!”

New products available at the BOOM! Studios booth at NYCC will be the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Year One Limited Slipcase Edition (strictly limited to 250 copies), which will debut at the show; two exclusive NYCC covers for Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #19; and two enamel pins featuring Lord Drakkon and his Zord, Black Dragon. Lord Drakkon is the first new Mighty Morphin Power Ranger since the debut of the television series nearly 25 years ago and is featured in nWay’s Saban’s Power Rangers: Legacy War mobile game.

Voltron: Legendary Defender Panel at New York Comic Con 2017

Join executive producer Joaquim Dos Santos, co-executive producer Lauren Montgomery, Josh Keaton (Shiro), and AJ LoCascio (Prince Lotor) at New York Comic Con’s Main Stage on Saturday October 7, 2017 at 11:00 AM to offer a sneak peek into the highly-anticipated fourth season of Voltron: Legendary Defender.

With Shiro back at the Castleship, Keith makes a choice that causes a rift between him and Team Voltron. As Allura and team focus on building the Voltron Coalition, Prince Lotor’s plans start to take shape. All attendees will receive a New York Comic Con exclusive poster created by Montgomery.
