    Empire Stage 1-E Hmmm….

    Family Room 1B02 Great name! And on Saturday… so spreading out the Kids programming!

    15 minutes between 1-D Main Stage panels. Not enough time to clear the room?

  2. Hey folks – just a quick note: I noticed the description for the “Drawing Workshop with Comic Book Inker Phyllis Novin” somehow contains my professional bio. Not sure how that happened. I know Phyllis though – she is wonderful and I’m sure her drawing panel will be great. As for me, I’m scheduled to be on the “Creatively Energizing Your Students With Comic Books and the Arts” panel in Room 1A17 on Thursday, 2:30-3:30: http://nycc13.mapyourshow.com/5_0/sessions/sessiondetails.cfm?ScheduledSessionID=18ABCFCC
