I will be at this year’s Comic-Con, taking place this week in San Diego, California.
I will be on two panels. The first is this one on Friday, July 24:
Friday, 4:00 – 5:00 pm Spotlight on Stephan Pastis: Stephan Pastis (Pearls Before Swine) shares his unlikely tale of how he went from being a full-time lawyer to one of the most popular syndicated cartoonists in newspapers today, including a rundown of some his most popular strips, and some that weren’t so popular. Room 2
The second panel is a group panel on Saturday, July 25:
Saturday, 12:00 – 1:00 pm Comic Strip Syndication is Dead: Long Live Syndication!: Q and A Session with Stephan Pastis (Pearls Before Swine); Richard Thompson (Cul De Sac) and Keith Knight (The K Chronicles) on the pros and cons of comic strip syndication and the challenges and options for aspiring comic strip creators in this era of declining newspaper readership. Room 7AB
I will be doing two signings also, both at the Comic Relief booth. My signing schedule is 5:15 pm on Friday, and 2:oo pm on Saturday.
One word of warning: I am a profound disappointment in person. Ask anyone who’s met me. On the upside, I can sign books, plush and body parts. Depending on the body part. And the body.
