First up, on Friday March 3rd from 1 to 2:30PM, Robert will be hosting the Image Founders panel! In celebration of Image’s 25th anniversary, the original founders of the company will be reunited at ECCC. Todd McFarlane, Jim Valentino, Erik Larsen, Rob Liefeld, Marc Silvestri, and Whilce Portacio will all be on the same stage to talk about the origins of the company and what it means today. The panel will be held on the Main Stage (WSCC 4A). This is a can’t-miss panel for comic fans!


Then on Saturday, March 4th from 11AM-12PM Robert will have a panel all to himself! Join the creator of The Walking Dead, Invincible & Outcast on the Main Stage (WSCC 4A) for a lively Q&A. Why lively? Because there will be no moderator, just Robert Kirkman and you, the fans, asking him questions directly. No holds barred!*

*Some holds may be barred.

The Future of Comics: Your Brand-New Favorites

Your favorite comics don’t look anything like those of your parents, siblings, or even your friends. There is such a wide variety of material out there that you can grab a comic on nearly any subject and find something to fall in love with. The work of Charles Soule (CURSE WORDS), Kurtis Wiebe (RAT QUEENS), Daniel Warren Johnson (EXTREMITY), and Joe Harris & Megan Hutchison (ROCKSTARS) is fantastic, no matter the genre they’re working in. Come find your new favorite comics at this panel, and discover a few new favorite creators, too.

We also have two panels taking place on Twitch’s ECCC Live stage! These ones are awesome because you can watch them even if you’re not going to the show. Just head over to Twitch. Here’s the info:
