“Writers Meet & Greet”
4:30 – 6:00 PM
With Joe Kelly and
Michael Jan Friedman!
Come meet two of the nicest writers in the industry and take part in a “Discussion Gruop” about all things comics! This isn’t a signing where you’ll wait in a line to ask a question. Joe and Michael will be “holding court”, fielding all your questions about comics and more since between the two of them they have written comics, novels, TV shows and movies! (But yes, they’ll sign your books while they chat.)
You probably know Joe from his work on Deadpool, Spider-Man, X-Men, JLA and more. While Michael has written ten New York Times bestsellers including a host of Star Trek novels, Aliens, Predator, Darkstars, Flash and more.
So come down and take part in an in-depth chat with two long time industry pros!
Come meet a great bunch of artists all volunteering to sketch for FREE for the day! The complete roster will be announced shortly, but includes Andy MacDonald (Detective Comics, Multiple Man) Jacob Chabot (Spongebob, Skullboy) and local favorites Tom Travers, Lula Lukas and more.
Jacob Chabot: Jacob is joining us for maybe the 12th time? He’s an absolute sketching monster returning to sketch again! You may know him from his work on SIMPSONS, SPONGEBOB, PLANTS VS. ZOMBIES, and of course his own amazing SKULLBOY!
Andy Macdonald: (2:00 – 6:00 PM) You may now Andy from his incredible work on DETECTIVE COMICS and MULTIPLE MAN. Come on down and get a sketch from this amazingly talented artist who’s joining us for the 2nd time!

Lula Lukas: Local favorite Lula Lukas will be joining us for the second time! Come on down and see her fantastic work and see why she is considered one of the top local up and coming artists.
John Broglia: (2:00 – 6:00 PM) John is joining us for a second time bringing his powerhouse sketching talents to the table. John has a ton of independent published work out there, so come check out his stuff!
Eddie Avila: Come meet Eddie Avila from DAY ONE COMICS. Eddie’s got a great style and happens to be a super nice guy joining us for the second time!
Garrett Berner: (12:00 – 2:00 PM) Joining us for the first time is long time friend of the store Garrett Berner! Garrett has decades of art out there and did a little book called LOST STORIES some of you may remember. Come down and meet a super nice guy in his first appearance at this event!
Michael Jan Friedman: Michael will be joining us again as the “LONE WRITER” on the panel! If you’re a fan of STAR TREK, come on down and ask him about the many works in the STAR TREK universe that he’s written. And of course, he’s got comic work out there too! And indy work. This guy’s prolific! So come pick his brains and check him out.
