Comments

  1. Our panel on the PBS documentary, Superheroes! at 5:00 Thursday will be really cool & I’m looking forward to a good crowd. And Random House will have copies of the companion “coffee table book” for anyone who wants a copy signed by the authors or the cool folks quoted in the book !

    Title: Superheroes: A Never-Ending Battle – PBS Documentary
    Time: 5:00PM – 6:00PM
    Location: 1A01

    http://www.pbs.org/about/news/archive/2013/superheroes-night/
    “ARLINGTON, VA; SEPTEMBER 5, 2013 – PBS announced today that Tuesday, October 15, 2013, is “Superheroes Night,” featuring a three-hour block dedicated to the groundbreaking program SUPERHEROES: A NEVER-ENDING BATTLE. The newest film from Emmy Award-winning producer/director Michael Kantor (BROADWAY: THE AMERICAN MUSICAL; MAKE ‘EM LAUGH: THE FUNNY BUSINESS OF AMERICA) will premiere at 8:00 p.m. ET ”

    Ah darn. I was hoping they would premiere it the Wednesday before NYCC, creating a big event before the Con.

    Dunno if PBS will have a booth.
    They are taking preorders for the DVD and book. (And I hope local stations will use it as a fundraising tool!)

  3. It’s too bad that “ComiXology Submit: The Future of Self-Publishing” and “Protect It and Publish It – Creating and Protecting your Comic Book Property” are scheduled for the same time slot.
