My 2023 San Diego Comic Con schedule

Heading back to SDCC!

My 2023 San Diego Comic Con schedule

Hello there!

Apologies for not doing a round-up for a couple of weeks. Things have been full-on as I prepare for my annual pilgrimage to San Diego for SDCC 2023! Normal service will resume on my return to the UK!

The con is going to be the usual blur of meetings, get-togethers and panels, with a few signings chucked in for good measure.

If you’re coming, here’s a handy graphic with all my public appearances, including signings with many of my fellow creators and High Republic cohorts!

And here are the full run-downs of those panels:

Crack Open the Vault: The Best in Creator-Owned Comics Unlocked

Friday 11am - Room 25ABC

Vault Comics has risen to the title of the best in genre-based sequential storytelling with multiple award-nominated series from comics’ top creators over the course of their six-year history, including critical darlings, fan favorites, and sales record–breaking series. Vault is premiering their latest series, Unnatural Order, from X-23 co-creator Christopher Yost. Vault invites attendees to join Yost, alongside Christopher Cantrell (The Blue Flame), Jackson Lansing and Colin Kelly (WifWulf), Corin Howell (Queen of Swords), and Zack Kaplan (Mindset), as the publisher offers a sneak peek and their fall lineup of the best in science fiction, fantasy, horror, and more. Moderated by Daniel Crary, host of the company’s weekly WhatNot stream and director of community engagement and events.

Lucasfilm Publishing: Stories from a Galaxy Far, Far Away . . .

Friday 1pm - Room 7AB

From the days of the glorious High Republic to the Age of Rebellion to Rise of the First Order, some of Lucasfilm Publishing's all-star authors, including Delilah S. Dawson, Justina Ireland, E. K. Johnston, George Mann, Cavan Scott, Charles Soule, and man of a thousand voices Marc Thompson, discuss stories from throughout the entire Star Wars saga, offering publishing reveals, announcements, and sneak peeks for readers and fans of all ages. Moderated by Lucasfilm Publishing creative director Michael Siglain.

Vault Comics: The Horror of it All—The Golden Age of Scary Stories

Saturday 4pm - Room 28DE

Independent comics have never been more prominent and more diverse. Bold ideas across genres are being released every Wednesday by more publishers than perhaps any other time in the history of the medium. Vault Comics, known for some of the most celebrated science fiction and fantasy, has expanded its reach into horror under their Nightfall imprint and to celebrate is inviting some friends on stage to discuss what makes for the best blood in four colors. Featuring Knotfest’s Ryan J. Downey, alongside Tim Seeley (West of Sundown), Cavan Scott and Corin Howell (Shadow Service), Rodney Barnes (Killadelphia, Blacula), Storm King publisher Sandy King Carpenter, Patrick Kindlon (Leaded Gasoline), and others.

I hope to see you there!
