God is Disappointed in You (The Sequel), with Mark Russell & Shannon Wheeler
3:00 Room Hall C (TCC 301)
Last year’s standing-room-only hot ticket returns — now with even more Biblical bewilderment! God Is Disappointed in You, published by Top Shelf, is the tongue-in-cheek “condensed” version of the Bible you never knew you needed — hilariously modern, but surprisingly authentic — packed with cartoons by Eisner-award-winner Shannon Wheeler (The New Yorker, Too Much Coffee Man). Join him and author Mark Russell (writer of DC Comics’ upcoming Prez) for an hour of unforgettable irreverence, including Q&A, audience sketches, and the hilarious-yet-accurate “ten-minute Bible.” PLUS: a taste of the Audie-nominated audiobook, read by Dr. Venture himself, James Urbaniak (The Venture Bros), and an exclusive announcement about the upcoming sequel!
Kevin Eastman: A Life With Turtles
Sunday, 3:30 – 4:20 Hall F (TCC 304)
Join the legendary co-creator of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and he talks about his long career in both comics and Hollywood, and how he brings his beloved Turtles to the world in a variety of media!

Sunday, 4:00 – 5:00 Room Hall C (TCC 301)
Transformers, Adventure Time, Star Trek, Orphan Black, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic… What do these comics all have in common?
