Because my graphic novel, Spill Zone, just came out, I’m headed to San Diego Comic Con! I’ve got three panels and two signings.
Hope to see you there!
Saturday July 22, 2017 11:00am – 12:00pm
First Second Booth
I’ll be signing SPILL ZONE. Buy at the book or bring your own. (And of course I’ll sign anything else you want me to, except confessions.)
Also we’re giving away Spill Night comics & tattoos!

CAPTURING TEEN ANGST
Sunday July 23, 2017 11:00am – 12:00pm
Emotions are never more heightened than when you ae a teenager; every trial and tribulation is the end of the world. Mark Waid (Archie) finds out how to capture a teenager’s dramatic spirit with experts Dean Hale (Calamity Jack), Shannon Hale (Real Friends), Erica Henderson (Unbeatable Squirrel Girl), Victoria Jamieson (Roller Girl), and Scott Westerfeld (Spill Zone).
THE FUTURE IS BLEAK
Sunday July 23, 2017 12:00pm – 1:00pm
All stories require an element of conflict, but some authors see a darker vision than others when they gaze into the future. Panelists Alex R. Kahler (Runebinder), Scott Westerfeld (Spill Zone), Cory Doctorow (Walkaway), Annalee Newitz (Autonomous), and Scott Reintgen (Nyxia) serve as guides to poisoned presents, alternative timeline apocalypses, near and far future dystopias, and other not-so-cheery scenarios with Maryelizabeth Yturralde (Mysterious Galaxy).
We’ll all be signing after the panel.
1:15pm – 2:15pm
