Image Comics:
Where Creators Own The Mainstream
The mainstream is whatever we want it to be. Killer robots, ghosts, absurdist comedy, and space adventures aren’t niche, but in comics, we sometimes treat them like they are. In reality? They’re as mainstream as anything else, thanks to their wide-ranging appeal and the astonishing execution from Kody
Chamberlain (Punks), Keenan Marshall Keller (The Humans), Chip Zdarsky (Kaptara), Marjorie Liu (Monstress), Alex Grecian (Rasputin), and Michael Moreci (Roche Limit). Come find your new favorite comic.

Friday, 7/10/15, 11:00a.m. – 12:00p.m., Room:
23ABC
Image Comics:
Where Creators Own Process

The trick to making comics isn’t finding a specific pen or sitting at the keyboard
for hours. You have to do all that, but more importantly, you must figure out the story you want to tell and the best way to tell it. Nick Dragotta & Jonathan
Hickman (East of West) go face-to-face with Corinna Bechko & Gabriel Hardman (Invisible Republic) in this wide-ranging discussion on how to make comics from some of the best in the business.

Saturday,
7/11/15, 1:00p.m. – 2:00p.m., Room: 7AB
Image Comics:
Where Creators Own Reality
Our entertainment is a reflection of our reality, and the best of our entertainment
says something about our world. Ed Brisson (Sheltered), Kelly Sue DeConnick (Bitch Planet), Sina Grace (Self-Obsessed), David Lapham (Stray Bullets), and Brandon Montclare (Rocket Girl) all incorporate the real world into their work in a wide variety of ways. Listen to them talk about the stories we tell ourselves about ourselves.

Saturday,
7/11/15, 4:15p.m. – 5:15p.m., Room: 6DE
Image Comics:
Where Creators Own Aesthetics
Your favorite comic shouldn’t look like your other favorite comic, which shouldn’t look like your other other favorite comic. Rob Guillory (Chew), Jamie McKelvie (The Wicked + The Divine), Stuart Moore (EGOs), Lee Loughridge (Deadly Class), Scott Snyder (Wytches), and Joshua Williamson (Nailbiter) know all about creating comics that aren’t like anything else on the shelves. Whether you’re a writer, artist, colorist, or fan, come and learn something new!

Sunday,

7/12/15, 2:00p.m. – 3:00p.m., Room: 7AB
Image Comics:
Where Creators Own Imagination
Japanese yokai, boy robots on the run, spaced-out Greek gods, alien deserts, and a
world unmoored are but the tip of the iceberg when it comes to work from Ivan Brandon (Drifter), Kieron Gillen (The Wicked + The Divine), Tula Lotay
(Supreme: Blue Rose), Dustin Nguyen (Descender), Kurtis Wiebe (Rat Queens), and Jim Zub (Wayward). These creators are incredible at channeling imagination into entertainment. What’s their secret?

Spotlight: Jimmie Robinson
Saturday,
7/11/15, 3:00p.m. – 4:00p.m.
From Cyberzone in
1994 to The Empty in 2015, cartoonist Jimmie Robinson (The Empty) has carved out a special place for himself in comics. In this Spotlight presentation moderated by Image Comics’ David Brothers, Jimmie shares the stage with Rob Guillory (Chew), Amanda Meadows (The Devastator), and Jamie Broadnax (BlackGirlNerds.com) for a wide-ranging and fun conversation about living in and
around comic books.

Spotlight: Eric Stephenson
Sunday, 7/12/15,
12:00p.m. – 1:00p.m., Room 4

Writer, marketer, publisher—after entering the comics industry in 1992,
Eric Stephenson has shown that he knows his
way around comic books. As the publisher of Image Comics,
Stephenson has overseen an incredible surge in quality and
potential for the comics industry. In this special Spotlight
panel, Stephenson is going to share his knowledge,
anecdotes, and jokes.

Nurturing Talent: What it takes to be a Decision Maker
Thursday, 7/9/15,
11:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m., Room 29AB
It takes a special kind of person to find talent in others and draw the best from them. Seeing the potential in comic creators and learning to
nurture that talent is not an easy task, but a very
important one. Moderator Mark Waid (Thrillbent) discusses
with Eric Stephenson (Image Comics), Chip
Kidd (Penguin Random House), Denis Kitchen (founder of
CBLDF), Reginald Hudlin (producer, director), and
Todd McFarlane (Spawn) how they
balance the everyday decisions with big
picture-planning.
