Image Comics: Where Creators Own Creativity, Friday, 3/25/16, 4:30p.m. – 5:30p.m., Room: 403AB

The sky’s the limit with comics, as Joe Harris (SNOWFALL), Keenan Marshall Keller (THE HUMANS), Brian Schirmer (BLACK JACK KETCHUM), Jimmie Robinson (POWER LINES), and Brian Haberlin (FASTER THAN LIGHT) know very well. New creativity has been crucial to the success of comics and drives the most compelling stories out there. In this panel, we’ll discuss the importance of creativity and resonant ideas when creating comics. There’s no story that comics can’t handle, so don’t be afraid to go deep or weird or both.

Top Cow Productions: From Then to Now, Saturday, 3/26/16, 11:30a.m. – 12:30p.m., Room: 515B

Founded by Marc Silvestri in 1992, Top Cow Productions soon made its name as the publisher of hit comics like Witchblade, The Darkness, and Cyberforce.
