HOW’S IT GOING, FRIENDS.
Will you be at San Diego Comicon this year? ME, TOO. Are you excited to be a part of a gigantic pop culture event? ME, TOO. Are you curious where I’ll be during said pop culture event? ME, TOO. Are you terrified of the increasingly close proximity to the unending void that encroaches upon us daily? ME, TOO.
But only one of those things I can actually do something about!
Please find below my schedule for San Diego Comicon!
SUPER SECRET ANNOUNCEMENT
I won’t be doing any signings at the Hachette Booth this year, but we have a super secret announcement for super secret fans of Sam Sykes. If you super secretly make your way to the Hachette Booth (that’s booth #1116) and super secretly whisper the password: “Buy my book” to the people working on the Orbit side, they will give you a free comic prelude to The City Stained Red, signed by me, for your collection!
Or, if you’re interested, you can get a physical copy of one of my books. BUT YOU MUST CHOOSE ONE OR THE OTHER. NOT BOTH, YOU GREEDY BABY.
THURSDAY, JULY 20th
11:00-11:50 AM: Signing
BOOM! Studios Booth #2229
Come on by the Boom! Studios booth and get yourself some signed copies of Brave Chef Brianna! The story is complete so now you can get the WHOLE DANG THING!
1:30-2:30 PM: Panel: Sixty Seconds With SFF Authors
Horton Grand Theater (on Balboa Ave)
Join me, Paul Cornell and various other people who smell nice to play a little game called “Just a Minute,” where we must speak with decisive, unhesitant authority on various nerd subjects. It’s probably a super serious panel for super serious people. I should be a great fit, right? Glad we agree.
7:30-8:30 PM: Panel: 10 Years of Adam Warren’s EMPOWERED
I was actually super astonished when Adam Warren, creator of the amazing sexy superhero comic, EMPOWERED, reached out to me to sit on his panel. I’ve always been a big fan, but I’ll also be a big contributor to this discussion about body image, finding one’s place in the world, comics and, hopefully, butts.
9:30 PM-1:30 AM: Drunk in An Alley
Do not disturb.
10:00 AM-9:00 PM: Following You Around Like An Animal
Beginning promptly at 10:00 AM, I will begin following you at a respectful distance in a jeep. Wearing a button-down shirt and cargo shorts, I will quietly whisper my awe as I pause and snap photos of you standing in line, eating a taco and generally living life well. With the help of a safari guide, I will not engage or disturb, as per the rules, but I will treasure these memories forever.
12:00-1:00 PM: Signing
Badali Jewelry Booth #532
Come on by the Badali Jewelry booth, purveyors of fine metalworks, and get yourself a signed book! Stop by! Chat! Buy a book! Buy jewelry! Never leave!
6:00-6:50 PM: Signing
BOOM! Studios Booth #2229
I’ll be signing more copies of Brave Chef Brianna and complaining, loudly, that no one respects me. Please stop by and bring me a taco!
10:00 AM-9:00 PM: Hiding In Your Luggage
I need a place to stay, man. Help me out. Just check me in customs and let me come live with you. They won’t say anything, it’s cool.
AND THAT’S IT!
Remember to go to the HACHETTE BOOTH #1116 and tell them to BUY MY BOOK to get yourself a FREE-ASS BOOK OR COMIC MY GOD. DO IT. DO IT, YOU PIECES OF STANK.
