NYCC 12: Where To Find The Beat

201210100243 NYCC 12: Where To Find The Beat
Short answer: splattered on a sidewalk.

Longer answer: When not in an interview or meeting, my home base will be the Publishers Weekly booth, #3147. I’ll be there with beat alumna Kate Fitzsimons and the rest of the PW crew (But NOT Calvin Reid, who’s at the Frankfort Book Fair for a change). Please stop by to enter our raffle, sign up for PW Comics World, talk about PW, or just say hello!

Thursday I’m doing a talk for publishers at 8 am! This will be the greatest achievement of my life! If someone has a backseat in their car I can pass out in afterwards, please DM me.

Other panels I’m on:
