SDCC – Star Wars Panel!

SDCC: Dark Horse Comics Swag

 

Heh, then a bit of faux SDCC news for you guys considering the upcoming DHP panel at comic con.

Obama Quits Office, “Can’t Handle” Comic-Con Panel

 

Btw!! At the same time as the DHP panel, the wonderful Mike Mignola will be interviewing the fantastic Dave Stewart in room 4, and signing afterward at table aa19.

 

My feelings on this went such as:

Nicole Sixx: “I’d like to go to that!! It’s at the same time as DHP though. I wish I had clones. o.o”

 

To which Mike replied:

Mike Mignola: “Dark Horse set it up like that so we couldn’t cause trouble at their panel.”

 

I laughed. A lot.

 

On that note! Many other great Dark Horse minds will be participating in Tr!ckster, an event that will be running parallel to SDCC very nearby. A Scott Morse brainchild, it is a must visit for all fellow lovers of Indie and Comics. I will be covering both the symposium with Mike Mignola on Thursday as well as the one with Steve Niles on Sunday. Other great Dark Horse creators are involved and I would definitely cover all of them if I could.

 

Next, some Star Wars Friday goodness!
