San Diego Comic-Con 2012: Day One
July 12th, 2012 by Nathan Collins
Nate here —
Bud Plant returned to the Comic-Con this year with a great 50% off sale, and with my father recovering from walking the length of the impressive convention hall with his equally impressive haul of books, I’m taking over today’s mini-update to plug my panel on Thursday:
6:30-8:00 Lost in Translation— As some manga companies such as TokyoPop, CMX, and Bandai Entertainment leave the picture, other manga venues such as JManga are coming onto the manga scene. With so much change, this is a turbulent time for manga freelancers. Find out how the industry is faring in a question-and-answer session with William Flanagan (Madoka Magica Manga), Jonathan Tarbox (Fist of the Northstar), Shaenon Garrity (Hunter X Hunter), Stephen Paul (One Piece), Nathan Collins (Metal Gear Solid: Guns of Patriots) and maybe even some surprise panelists. Room 26AB
And if you’re at the con, don’t forget to go to M.A.C.’s panel from 5:00 – 6:00: First Comics: 30th Anniversary Extravaganza! at Room 23ABC. More details in his post below.
Finally, in order to have at least some content in this post about the Comic-Con preview night, here’s my vote for the stealth hit of the show this year…Mustache Monocles.
