Have I mentioned that I'll be at ArmadilloCon next week? Probably not. Well, I am. And here's my tentative schedule:

Fr2300Dz Why are most comic books that are made into movies so friggin' bad?
Fri 11:00 PM-Midnight de Zavala
Roberson*, Nakashima-Brown, Porter, Wilson, Miles
Every once in awhile, a comic book movie will be great, but for the most part, they are terrible. Is it the screenplay? The director? The acting? The comic book? Or something else?

Sa1230R Reading
Sat 12:30 PM-1:00 PM Robertson
Chris Roberson

Sa2000De Hypotheticals
Sat 8:00 PM-9:00 PM DeWitt
Porter*, Roberson, Sturges, Wilson, Blaschke
A role playing panel wherein comics professionals take a set of interlinked and developing hypothetical scenarios regarding the comic book industry and play them out. There’s no audience participation, other than the audience getting a lot of enjoyment out of it.

Sa2200PN Will the best Doctor Who please stand up?
Sat 10:00 PM-11:00 PM Phoenix North
Bey*, JMann, LMann, Osborne, Roberson, Sullivan
Which one was the smartest? Best looking? Most useless? Worst of all time? Audience participation is welcome is this light-hearted look at the beloved British show.

Su1100Dz The Small Press Boom
Sun 11:00 AM-Noon de Zavala
Cupp*, Person, Roberson, Waldrop, Burton, Lansdale
Small press has never been more popular than it is today.

The full schedule is here, where I imagine any changes in the coming days will appear. And remember, whenever I'm not scheduled to be elsewhere, I'm sure I can be found in the hotel bar.

i'll be there, too!
In the bar, I hope...
Gawd, are they trying to kill us? I've got a Friday night 10 pm panel, you've got one at 11....
You know, I did an eleven o'clock Friday panel two years ago at ArmadilloCon, and was amazed to find it packed. Of course, I was already three sheets to the wind, so my perceptions might have been somewhat clouded, but still and all it was a surprisingly high turnout.
My 10 pm panel is "duelling bloggers," with me, Blaschke, Nakashima-Brown, versus Maureen McHugh and Brad Denton, among others. I think being three-quarters drunk is the only way I'm going to survive this.
Well, if you ask me, being 3/4 drunk is the way to survive *any* panel...
