Jimmy will be attending Heroes Con this weekend in Charlotte, NC! It's one of the most well respected shows in the country attracting major names in the comic book business. Heck, Stan Lee himself is coming back this year after a long absence. Of course, Comic News Insider will be there covering it all. Well, a lot of it. We'll again have a table near the front entrance to conduct interviews and put our feet up. And Jimmy will be moderating 2 panels this year. Due to some scheduling conflicts, he had to drop out from moderating a few others. Here are the ones he'll be moderating:
- Friday - 4pm: Room 208AB
Only one thing can stop Skinner Sweet and Pearl Jones and that is a stake made from wood from Geppetto’s Mystic Grove [TM]. Join moderator Jimmy Aquino of Comic News Insider and Vertigo writers Bill Willingham andScott Snyder as they discuss writing great horror/fantasy for us meat puppets/future meals.
- Sunday - 12:30pm: Room 208AB
FRANKENSTEIN ALIVE, ALIVE!!
Recipe for a great panel: Take one part Bernie Wrightson; add equal parts Steve Niles and an abnormal brain and what do you get? The great new horror comic Frankenstein Alive! Garnish with moderator Jimmy Aquino of Comic News Insider and Chill to the Bone. Serves a couple of hundred easy.
Also look out for the official CNI photography team of Faren Kilpatrick and her daughter, Faith! If you're in cosplay, strike a pose! And you just may see original CNI host, Joe Gonzalez, running around on Sunday. It's like seeing Sasquatch, so be on the lookout! If you spot him, you win a prize. The prize is that you saw him. CNI's partner, The Beat as run by Heidi MacDonald, will be there doing massive coverage/interviews/panels as well. Between the 2 of us, we should get it all for you. Stay tuned for a big week or 2 of fun and informative interviews!
