Along with the variant exclusives, Image will be hosting a number of panels throughout the convention. The schedule is as follows:

Thursday, 4/7/16, 7:00 PM – 8:00 PM (T304)

Image Comics: Where Creators Own Style

Style is what gives comics their swing, whether through visuals or dialogue. What kind of story are you telling? How cool is it? Joe Harris (SNOWFALL), Emi Lenox (PLUTONA), Riley Rossmo (RASPUTIN), Amy Clare (ISLAND), and a few special guests know all about style. Come and pick their brains and find out how to make comics sing.

Friday, 4/8/16, 1:30 PM – 2:30 PM (T305)

Image Comics: Where Creators Own Drama

You scream when your favorite character moves off the page and you cheer when they finally get their way. Drama works! Join us as Joshua Williamson (NAILBITER), Steve Orlando (VIRGIL), Meredith McClaren (HINGES), Nick Barber (RINGSIDE), Jim Zub (WAYWARD), and a few special guests dig into just why drama is so crucial to storytelling.

Saturday, 4/9/16, 11:15 AM – 12:15 PM Room (T304)

Image Comics: Where Creators Own Thrills

Have you ever finished a comic and felt your heart pounding in your chest? Of course you have. In fact, Kieron Gillen (THE WICKED + THE DIVINE), Sloane Leong (FROM UNDER MOUNTAINS), Tom Neely (THE HUMANS), Alex de Campi (NO MERCY), Jason McNamara (THE RATTLER), Brian Schirmer (BLACK JACK KETCHUM), and a few special guests have probably been responsible for getting your heart racing with their work. What’s the trick? Come and find out.

Sunday, 4/10/16, 2:45 PM – 3:45 PM (T304)

Image Comics: Where Creators Own Collaboration

Writer, artist, colorist, letterer—comics are often a collaborative art form, and collaboration means cooperation. Ed Brisson (THE VIOLENT) writes, Lee Loughridge (WOLF) and Kelly Fitzpatrick (SNOWFALL) color, Ariana Maher (RINGSIDE) letters, and Jamie McKelvie (THE WICKED + THE DIVINE) draws. Working effectively as a team is crucial to making good work. Get some tips, tricks, and advice from these pros and a few guests.
