My Comic-Con Article from the Chicago Sun-Times

posted by Nell Minow

Thanks to the Chicago Sun-Times for publishing my article on the San Diego Comic-Con.

Attendees will be checking the Comic-Con schedule on the event’s iPhone app to make it to panel discussions on the history of Mad magazine and Little Lulu. Legendary schlock film producer Roger Corman will appear to talk about giving the first movie jobs to Jack Nicholson and superstar directors Ron Howard, Martin Scorsese and Francis Ford Coppola.

Also scheduled are tributes to the adorable children’s show “Yo Gabba Gabba” and to the decidedly not-adorable “Robot Chicken.” Movie costume and production designers will talk about their work and show clips from upcoming productions.

Also on tap are panel discussions about Christian comics, LBGT comics and the annual “Black Panel,” again featuring filmmaker Reggie Hudlin and promising “surprise guests who will rock your world.” Plus, there are portfolio reviews for young artists hoping to get jobs in comics field. Every year, someone arrives at Comic-Con as a fan and leaves as someone who next year might have fans of his or her own.
