Rose City Comic Con Location and Schedule
I mangled the floorplan map, but for the record:
I’m at Table A-11.
Jennifer Van Meter ( jenvanmeter )is at Table A-12.
Matthew Clark is at Table A-10.
Eric Trautmann ( erictrautmann ) is at Table P-06.
Matthew Southworth is at Table F-11.
And Justin Greenwood ( justingreenwood ) is at Table L-07.
Trautmann and I will — hopefully — have some bonus LAZARUS goodies for sale that we’re debuting at the show. In addition, I’ll have a smattering of novels — including BRAVO — and copies of LAZARUS Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 for sale at the table.
Justin has an exclusive STUMPTOWN print he’ll be debuting, as well.
Schedule
I’m telling you right now that if you’re only attending Saturday and you’re hoping to get my signature on something, you want to come early. I am doing three panels on Saturday, and will not be at the table from 11:45 until 4:15 as a result.
Saturday
12:00PM - 12:50PM — Image Comics Presents I is for Immediate — Panel Room 2
Separately, Kelly Sue DeConnick (Pretty Deadly), Matt Fraction (Sex Criminals), and Greg Rucka (Lazarus) have written some of the most compelling and intensely relatable comics on the stands. Together, these three writers are part of a wave of creators creating stories that reflect life as live it and the world as we know it. Join them as they discuss writing comics and striving for more.
1:00PM - 1:50PM — Spotlight: Greg Rucka — Panel Room 7
Eisner award winning writer and novelist, Greg Rucka has made a name for himself by crafting powerfully complex and human stories that can make the most fantastical characters feel real. Sit in on a conversation with the writer of Lazarus, Stumptown, and Whiteout that gets to the heart of how he gives characters souls.
3:00PM - 3:50PM — Oni Press: Creator-Owned Comics for You — Panel Room 2
Join Oni Press Editor in Chief James Lucas Jones along with Stumptown’s Greg Rucka and Justin Greenwood, The Bunker’s Joshua Hale Fialkov and Joe Infurnari, I Was the Cat’s Paul Tobin and Benjamin Dewey, and Meteor Men’s Jeff Parker and Sandy Jarrell for a rousing roundtable discussion on just what it’s like for independent creators in today’s comics industry.
Sunday
2:00PM - 2:50PM — Secret Identity Politics with Ben Saunders — Panel Room 4
In recent years, superhero comics have started to reflect the cultural diversity of the United States in more inclusive and sensitive ways. But introducing themes of Gender, Sexuality and Race into superhero stories is not without risk. Some consider the genre too trivial to support such important themes; and others react negatively at the intrusion of political concerns into their favorite fantasies of power and glamour. How do creators approach the issue of “Secret Identity Politics?” Join Marc Andreyko, Kelly Sue Deconnick, Greg Rucka and G. Willow Wilson and learn how they balance the sometimes conflicting interests of commercial art and social justice.
Normal convention rules apply. If I’m at the table, I will be happy to sign and chat. I will sign just about anything. I will sign many, many books. I will sign novels and comics and DVDs and whatever.
If you bring many, many books and there are people waiting, I will ask you to allow to sign in batches of 10 or so, so people don’t end up waiting too long.
I do not charge for my signature.
Sometimes, I have a tip jar out for The Hero Initiative. You do not have to put money in this tip jar. But if you do, it’s going to a very good cause. (And I think highly of you for donating to charity.)
If you purchase something from me or my partner-in-crime Jennifer Van Meter ( jenvanmeter ), we are equipped to take credit cards as well as cash. If you purchase something, it is a given I shall sign it for you, unless you tell me you don’t want me to, in which case I’ll likely listen to you and not sign it. So there.
If you ask me to sign something, and you ask that I personalize it to you or someone else, be prepared to spell out the name, potentially multiple times. Conventions are noisy, and you don’t want me writing your name “Chris” if you spell it “Kris.”
As always, as ever, the Wheaton’s Law will be strictly enforced. Moreso perhaps than normal, because Mr. Wil Wheaton will be at the show. So he will totally find out if you were a dick.
Very much hope to see you there!

I’m going to be at Rose City Comic Con this weekend!

Looking forward to heading in to Portland this weekend for rosecitycomiccon . I’ll be at Table L-07 with a full spectrum of books, including copies of the newly released STUMPTOWN V3 #1 and the collected THE FUSE Vol.1: THE RUSSIA SHIFT.

I’ve also had some new 11x17 STUMPTOWN prints made (as seen above) and as well as FUSE prints (as seen below) and a ton of original art for sale at my table. And I’ll be taking on a couple more commissions at the show for folks who are interested.

On Saturday, I’ll be on the Oni Press: Creator-Owned Comics For You Panel at 3:00 pm with my STUMPTOWN partner-in-crime Greg Rucka (@ruckawriter) and a slew of great creators in Panel Room 2.

It’s my first time attending this show so make sure to drop by and say hello!

This is the cover of STUMPTOWN v3, issue 1, the first issue in our — now-mostly — ongoing tale of Portland PI Dexedrine “Dex” Callisto Parios. Art and cover by Justin Greenwood, with colors by Ryan Hill.
Part 1 of “The Case of the King of Clubs” comes out this Wednesday, published by the kind folks at Oni Press, and available at your LCS as well as digitally. For those of you who were fans of the work that Matthew Southworth and I did on the first two series minis, I think you will find the heart remains the same, and that Justin has brought his own wonderful style, energy, and passion to these pages.
This, too, is a good place to start if you’ve never read STUMPTOWN before.
We hope you will enjoy it.

Can’t wait for everybody to check this out tomorrow!

Saturday, September 6th- Signing at Brian’s Comics in Petaluma, CA

I’ll be in Petaluma at BRIAN’S COMICS this weekend to sign books for the continuing kick off of THE FUSE Vol 1: The Russia Shift! I haven’t been to Petaluma for a couple years so looking forward to coming out chatting with folks.

The signing goes from 12-2 pm so if you’re in the area, drop by and say hello!

comicfanfan asked:

Hey Justin! I saw that you are going to be at Brian's Comics in Petaluma this weekend and I had some questions. Will you be doing any sketches while you're there? If not, do you do commissions and how much would those be? One last question, will you be bringing along any goodies to sell while you're there? Thanks and we can't wait to see you! -James

Hey James! I usually do some head sketches and quick stuff while I’m hanging out for fun. I don’t typically take on any commissions at a signing but I will be taking on some for RCCC in a few weeks, and the pre-order info will go up on my tumblr in the next few days. You could order one then and I can mail it to you.

I’ll also bring some FUSE prints and some original art to Brian’s on Saturday. Hope to see you there!
