    Nice, I wanted to go to this really bad this year (would have been my first convention ever) but I found that JANUARY is not early enough to get tickets to it. :(

    I plan to get tickets for next year though pretty much as soon as the purchasing options open up.

    Wow, I didn't realize they sold out so soon, but given how popular it's gotten to be it doesn't surprise me.

    Comic Con had tickets available again just last week, selling off memberships that had been cancelled. I picked up a couple for me and the missus. They sold out again quickly enough though. Gotta keep on the alert for opportunities like that.

    And Trek fans might want to check out the Scribe Awards ceremony Friday night at five. Several Trek books and authors are nominated.

    I'll be at the Con all weekend, mostly at the PRISM booths (#2049/2146/2148).

    I'm doing two panels, which anyone is welcome to attend. And I'm happy to sign anything any of you bring to have me sign. Just look for the huge red moustache!

    “Divas and Golden Lassoes: The LGBT Obsession with Super Heroines”, Thursday, July 22, 10:30-11:30am. Why do LGBT comic book fans, especially gay men, worship female superheroes? Going beyond just collecting the comics of Wonder Woman, Batgirl, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Donna Troy, Saturn Girl, and many more, LGBT fans intensely identify with and take great inspiration from these iconic heroines. Moderator Charles “Zan” Christensen has assembled an esteemed panel featuring Marc Andreyko (Manhunter), Phil Jimenez (The Essential Wonder Woman Encyclopedia), Andy Mangels (founder, “Wonder Woman Day”), and Michael Troy. Room 8.

    “Gays in Comics: Year 23!”, Saturday, July 24, 5:45-7:15pm. An all-star panel examines the rising diversity in the comics world today as Andy Mangels' long-running “Gays in Comics” panel continues into its third decade at Comic-Con. As mainstream companies DC and Marvel continue to frontline gay characters such as Batwoman and Northstar and hire top-level gay or gay-friendly creators, independent publishers and creators are publishing unequivocal content spotlighting gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered characters, to the cheers of the thousands of fans who are out of the comic book closet. Welcome a top-level panel of GLBT and straight creators, who will give amazing insights and glimpses of surprises to come! Joining founding moderator Andy Mangels, the USA Today best-selling author of Star Trek novels and Iron Man: Beneath The Armor, are Howard Cruse, godfather of the gay comic movement; Geoff Johns, writer of Green Lantern, Flash, Brightest Day, and DC Entertainment's chief creative officer; Marjorie M. Liu, the New York Times bestselling author and writer of Black Widow, X-23, and co-author of Dark Wolverine; Daniel Way, writer of Wolverine and Deadpool and co-writer of Dark Wolverine; Jim McCann, writer of Hawkeye & Mockingbird, Dazzler, and Return of the Dapper Men; Charles “Zan” Christensen, founding member of PRISM Comics and new publisher of gay-themed Northwest Press; Dan Parent, writer and artist for Archie and Betty & Veronica and creator of Archie's new gay character, Kevin Keller; and Tim Fish, creator of Cavalcade of Boys and writer/artist for X-Men: Nation X, and Iron Man: Designed Intelligence! Plus, there's always a surprise or two! Room 6A


    Afterward from 7:15 to 8:15pm, stick around for the hour-long “Gays in Comics Mixer and Silent Auction”, hosted by PRISM Comics, with prizes and surprise special guests! Meet your favorite LGBT creators and fellow comics fan, plus stay for the special free drawing of a “Comics Gift Basket” and the silent auction of hot comics items! Room 6A.

    Well as long as we're all plugging...

    My documentary "Comic Book Literacy" (link in the sig) will screen at the Comic-Con Film Festival Friday at 4:30. I'll be there for the screening and a short Q & A afterward.
