Thursday, July 19 @ 2:00 – 3:00 p.m., Room 23ABC
#WeBelieve in Fantasy                        

Creators conjure magic on a monthly basis, stretching the boundaries of reality to explore resonant themes under a veneer of high fiction. This group of creators has taken a legacy of wands, wizards, and incantations and tailored it to a modern context, where shape-shifting teen baristas search for missing love and reckless rockers parlay with infernal forces. Let this panel of spellbinding talent, including Sam Humphries (BLACKBIRD),Grace Ellis (MOONSTRUCK), Jeremy Haun (THE REALM), Johnnie Christmas(FIREBUG), Megan Hutchison (ROCKSTARS), and other special guests enchant you as they explain the alchemy behind their latest comics.

Friday, July 20 @ 12:00 – 1:00 p.m., Room 23ABC
#WeBelieve in Horror    

Image Comics has ushered in a new era of horror with cerebral writers and visceral artists elevating sequential-art dread to claustrophobic heights. From John Layman‘s kaiju free-for-all, LEVIATHAN, to Pornsak Pichetshote and Aaron Campbell’s reflective haunted house boiler, INFIDEL, comics are evolving terror to new personal, socially minded levels. Join a roster of the most sinister storytellers including Will Dennis (the editor of WYTCHES, GIDEON FALLS) and other special guests to discover how they’re altering an entire genre.

Saturday, July 21 @ 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m., Room 7AB
#WeBelieve in Suspense                        

Comic scribes wield character, dialogue, and panels with clockwork precision, leading readers through a gauntlet of plot beats designed to ratchet tension and escalate stakes. In concert with artists, these storytellers operate outside budget constraints to orchestrate explosive dramas without any limits save their own imaginations. Listen to a panel of thrill gurus including Donny Cates (REDNECK), Mirka Andolfo (UNNATURAL), Steve Orlando (CRUDE), Jacob Semahn (NO. 1 WITH A BULLET), Megan Hutchison (ROCKSTARS), and Dean Haspiel (THE RED HOOK) as they deconstruct their approach to weaving the tightest suspense in comics.

Sunday, July 22 @ 1:45 – 2:45 p.m., Room 5AB
#WeBelieve in Craft                         

Image hosts a stable of creators who have honed their skills through countless comics, publishers, and media. With their creator-owned projects, these writers and artists build on expansive careers to deliver the apex of comics craftsmanship. Join a murderer’s row of career myth-makers including Joe Casey (NEW LIEUTENANTS OF METAL, MCMLXXV), Daniel Warren Johnson (EXTREMITY), Justin Greenwood (THE LAST SIEGE), Kickliy (PERDY), and Shannon Wheeler (MEMOIRS OF A VERY STABLE GENIUS) as they chart the paths they traveled to arrive at their current projects.

UK – Charlie’s Angels #1 Signing

Writer John Layman appears at Forbidden Planet to sign CHEW VOL. 1 and CHARLIE’S ANGELS #1 on Tuesday 10th July.

In CHEW, Tony Chu is a detective with a secret, a weird secret – he’s Cibopathic, which means he gets psychic impressions from whatever he eats.

It also means he’s a hell of a detective, as long as he doesn’t mind nibbling on the corpse of a murder victim to figure out whodunit, and why. He’s been brought on by the Special Crimes Division of the Fda, the most powerful law enforcement agency on the planet, to investigate their strangest, sickest, and most bizarre cases.

In CHARLIE’S ANGELS, the Angels are back, baby! The original Angels, Jill, Kelly and Sabrina!

Travel back to the swingin’ 70s, and revisit the butt-kicking, crime-fighting, mould-breaking lady detectives who took 70s TV by storm, ready to do the same to comics 40 years later! Break out your bell-bottoms, feather your hair, and jump back to a era of peanut-farmer presidents, gargantuan gas-guzzlers and foxy female detectives for a globe-trotting adventure that’s simply too big and epic for the 70s-era boob tube.

Written by elderly Eisner winner and solicitation-writing former-superstar John Layman, and with art by his scrappy but loveable youngster pal, Joe Eisma.

Image Comics: We Believe In Character

Comic artists don’t just translate scripts: they build characters. From choreographing the most subtle facial tics and body language to designing entire wardrobes, illustrators are master actors of ink on page. Giving shape to entire casts, they carve new souls on a monthly basis. The creators on this panel specialize in character design, from Leila del Duca’s medieval romanticism on SLEEPLESS to Jeremy Haun’s rugged post-apocalyptic fantasy chic in THE REALM, and Tula Lotay’s fashion-forward covers. Come see these shapers discuss their process, including Annie Wu and Jen Bartel as they preview their upcoming Image projects, DEAD GUY FAN CLUB and BLACKBIRD.

Image Comics: We Believe In Drama

Writers channel the crises we face everyday through layers of fiction, allowing readers to dissect universal struggles through a vibrant, askew lens.

Image Comics Announcements
Thursday, 4:15PM – 6:15PM
Image Comics is bringing the Future of Comics to Emerald City Comicon in 2017 with this special two-hour presentation. Featuring a keynote speech by publisher Eric Stephenson about the past, present, and future of comics and a full slate of brand-new series to be announced, this panel is sure to set the tone for the year and give you plenty of great comics to look forward to reading.

Image Comics: 25th Anniversary Founders Panel
Friday, 1PM- 2:30PM
Twenty-five years ago, a group of comics artists looked at the difference between what they were capable of and what they were being given, and left the promise of steady work for new pastures. The result was Image Comics, which has grown from an upstart group to a comics publisher that has changed the course of the industry. Image’s 25th anniversary year begins with this special event, a rare gathering that is not to be missed.

The Future Of Comics: Cultivating Identity
Friday, 4PM – 5PM
The comics you love the most tend to have a personal touch, something that helps you relate to the characters, or makes a fantastic situation more believable. Corinna Bechko (INVISIBLE REPUBLIC), Ray Fawkes (UNDERWINTER: SYMPHONY), Gabriel Hardman (THE BELFRY), and a few more special guests make works that use the personal touch to great effect, and they’re ready to share their insights with you.

The Future of Comics: Your Brand-New Favorites
Saturday, 12:15PM – 1:15PM
Your favorite comics don’t look anything like those of your parents, siblings, or even your friends. There is such a wide variety of material out there that you can grab a comic on nearly any subject and find something to fall in love with. The work of Charles Soule (CURSE WORDS), Kurtis Wiebe (RAT QUEENS), Daniel Warren Johnson (EXTREMITY), and Joe Harris & Megan Hutchison (ROCKSTARS) is fantastic, no matter the genre they’re working in. Come find your new favorite comics at this panel, and discover a few new favorite creators, too.

The Future of Comics: Pure Storytelling
Sunday, 1:15PM – 2:15PM
Curious about making comics? Want to give your storytelling talents a boost? Image Comics is pleased to present Kaare Andrews (RENATO JONES: THE ONE%), Jeff Lemire (ROYAL CITY), Emi Lenox (PLUTONA), Steve Lieber (THE FIX), and a few special guests. These cartoonists are incredibly talented, and experts in storytelling. Come pick the brains of the masters and enjoy a lively conversation about telling stories in comics.

Some signings require a wristband for entry, as noted on the schedule. Drawings for wristbands for these events will begin at show opening the day before and day of each signing. Come to the Dark Horse booth early for the best chance to join these events.

Lines may also be closed for some signings due to crowding or time restrictions.

We have two signing stages. One features art by Mike Huddleston and Mike Mignola for Hellboy; the other showcases the Xenoverse with art by Massimo Carnevale for Aliens: Defiance and Dave Palumbo for Prometheus: Life and Death and Predator: Life and Death. The location of each signing is indicated by the following abbreviations:

HB = Hellboy Signing Stage XV = Xenoverse Signing Stage

All events are subject to change. Some restrictions apply. Please see Dark Horse Comics staff if you have questions.

SATURDAY, JULY 23

3:00 p.m.–4:00 p.m. 30TH ANNIVERSARY OF DARK HORSE (Room 7AB)

Thirty years ago, Dark Horse arrived with an agenda different from that of any other publisher in comics. The young company was founded on the belief that comics creators should have the option to retain the rights to their own work, and it continues to be a highly fertile breeding ground for new characters, concepts, and more! Now, the publisher is poised to make headlines again with some of the biggest news about new original work since Frank Miller brought Sin City to the pages of Dark Horse Presents! Join panelists for an exclusive look at upcoming and unannounced creator-owned work from some of the biggest names in and outside the industry! This will be the comics panel everyone will be talking about at this year’s show!
