I’m hosting a panel at Comic Con. Seriously stoked about the line-up we’ve got. Amped for the middle portion, too,  wherein we’ll give kids a shot to fling some ideas at us, and then opine on how we’d approach the stories.

RAWK ON for reading! Official description as follows….

Perfect Square: Making Kids Comics Awesome!
Everybody talks about comics growing up-but can they still mature without (GASP) forgetting the children?

Join this eclectic group of creators and editors for a lively roundtable. What are the challenges of entertaining different age levels? Are there lessons comics should take from manga, animation, and YA literature? And what advice should any aspiring creators know if they want to make their comics truly awesome for all ages? Bring your kids along, or just your inner child, and find answers that will get you laughing, learning, and looking at the craft of all-ages comics in a whole new way!

Featuring as moderator writer Tom Pinchuk (Max Steel) with writer/artist Katie Cook (My Little Pony), writer Jenni L. Holm (Baby Mouse), editor Shannon Watters (kaBOOM!, Adventure Time), editor Sarah Gaydos (IDW Kids Comics), and writer/editor Joel Enos (Ben 10, Perfect Square).

Shocking revelations! The galaxy’s evilest pinata survived the mega-signing!

To defeat it, once or for all, I enlisted comrades-at-arms Kirkblade, that bravest warrior John Omohundro and the reason for dragons himself, Chris Northrop. Once more, meltdowncomics's back entrance became a battleground where the fate of the galaxy would be decided. 

The fight was intense — fraught with sacrifice — but the reign of terror has ended! The galaxy is safe, at last.

Bill Sienkiewiicz 1986: Elektra: Assassin #3

I wanted to paint Elektra: Assassin at all costs. I wanted to do it so badly, that the rate for the coloring was like $40 a page. They didn’t have a painted page rate at the time. So I was doing all that work for essentially nothing because I needed to do it, I wanted to do it. From working with Frank’s scripts to laughing my head off to being inspired and excited and knowing that whatever he was going to throw back at me was going to inspire me further. It really helped to make it about the work… because it all got turned back into the storyline. It was a very creative environment

A book I wrote a story for has just been nominated for a Harvey award! THE REASON FOR DRAGONS is up for “Best Original Graphic Album.” Zack Turner and I did a back-up short about the occasion when our time-displaced knight wandered into a Medieval Times-like restaurant.

Voting is open to comics creators until August 17th, so please show some support!

A major huzzah to Chris and Jeff for putting such a rad project together. And big kudos to all my talented friends and colleagues who’ve been nominated in other categories — James Asmus, Joe LeFavi, Comfort Love, Adam Withers, Bryce Carlson, Dave Lanphear, David Petersen and F.J. DeSanto. Give all these talented people your votes!
