Nerd Pro- …errr, Comic-Con International

By Ted Naifeh  //  Blog Post  //  3 Comments

It’s that time of year again, where I spend way too much money on a swanky hotel and rub elbows with comics most talented creators. In other words, Nerd Prom! Or as some folks call it, Comic-Con International! 
I will be signing at the Oni Press exhibition booth every day, and we’ll have Princess Ugg #2 plus lots of other fancy promotional goodies. Didn’t hear about our limited edition Courtney Crumrin bat barrettes? Get ‘em at the Oni booth. Plus, hear about the latest Ugg news, or whatever else I might be blathering about.

Find me here:
Oni Press booth #1833

Thursday from 11:00am to 12:30pm

Friday from 2:00pm to 3:30pm

Saturday from 11:00am to 12:30pm

And Sunday from 1:00pm to 2:30 pm

Also, be sure to come see me at this awesome panel:

From Snidely Whiplash to Voldemort and Back: The Guys (and Gals?) We Love to Hate, Sunday, 7/27/14, 11:30am – 12:30pm, Room 8*

A panel of authors, artists, creators, and educators will discuss what characteristics make a fan-favorite villain and what budding creators might want to think about when hatching their own knavish ne’er-do-wells.  How have villains of past and present changed?   How has their development been affected by the Comics Code Authority?  In contemporary society, what do they represent? Are they anti-establishment or part of the establishment? How do affective villains play foil to their heroes? Are they becoming more believable and likeable?

In this panel, we will tackle these questions, along with discussing strategies for designing new and engaging villains.  The panel will include questions from the audience and an interactive exercise where we will brainstorm what next year’s SDCC 2015 favorite villain might look like.
