PANELS HOSTED BY IMAGE COMICS:

Thursday, July 19 @ 2:00 – 3:00 p.m., Room 23ABC
#WeBelieve in Fantasy
Creators conjure magic on a monthly basis, stretching the boundaries of reality to explore resonant themes under a veneer of high fiction. This group of creators has taken a legacy of wands, wizards, and incantations and tailored it to a modern context, where shape-shifting teen baristas search for missing love and reckless rockers parlay with infernal forces. Let this panel of spellbinding talent, including Sam Humphries (BLACKBIRD), Grace Ellis (MOONSTRUCK), Jeremy Haun (THE REALM), Johnnie Christmas (FIREBUG), Megan Hutchison (ROCKSTARS), and other special guests enchant you as they explain the alchemy behind their latest comics.

Friday, July 20 @ 12:00 – 1:00 p.m., Room 23ABC
#WeBelieve in Horror
Image Comics has ushered in a new era of horror with cerebral writers and visceral artists elevating sequential-art dread to claustrophobic heights. From John Layman’s kaiju free-for-all, LEVIATHAN, to Pornsak Pichetshote and Aaron Campbell’s reflective haunted house boiler, INFIDEL, comics are evolving terror to new personal, socially minded levels. Join a roster of the most sinister storytellers including Will Dennis (the editor of WYTCHES, GIDEON FALLS) and other special guests to discover how they’re altering an entire genre.

Saturday, July 21 @ 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m., Room 7AB
#WeBelieve in Suspense
Comic scribes wield character, dialogue, and panels with clockwork precision, leading readers through a gauntlet of plot beats designed to ratchet tension and escalate stakes. In concert with artists, these storytellers operate outside budget constraints to orchestrate explosive dramas without any limits save their own imaginations. Listen to a panel of thrill gurus including Donny Cates (REDNECK), Mirka Andolfo (UNNATURAL), Steve Orlando (CRUDE), Jacob Semahn (NO. 1 WITH A BULLET), Megan Hutchison (ROCKSTARS), and Dean Haspiel (THE RED HOOK) as they deconstruct their approach to weaving the tightest suspense in comics.

Sunday, July 22 @ 1:45 – 2:45 p.m., Room 5AB
#WeBelieve in Craft
Image hosts a stable of creators who have honed their skills through countless comics, publishers, and media. With their creator-owned projects, these writers and artists build on expansive careers to deliver the apex of comics craftsmanship. Join a murderer’s row of career myth-makers including Joe Casey (NEW LIEUTENANTS OF METAL, MCMLXXV), Daniel Warren Johnson (EXTREMITY), Justin Greenwood (THE LAST SIEGE), Kickliy (PERDY), and Shannon Wheeler (MEMOIRS OF A VERY STABLE GENIUS) as they chart the paths they traveled to arrive at their current projects.

    Tony your kllng the market for the specers lstng the prices…especially the free one DC ssue. an easy 10 to 20 flp durrng show or was not now that everyone knows their free….none of thes books will go heavy now, killing the market CHu!

    • Anthony says:

      I didn’t mention a DC book. Which DC book are you referencing? This is the press release that Image put out

      • Wren says:

        Think he means Deadly Class.

      • Anthony says:

        Ah. Good point. But still buyers know there is a “service fee” for buying exclusives and expect to pay more. If you are unable to sell exclusives on eBay during the con, you are buying the wrong exclusives or doing the whole selling thing wrong.

      • Wren says:

        Yeah. There are freebies given out all the time at NYCC (only con I go to due to location), that can hit nice prices. Doomsday Clock ashcan last year comes to mind. Or even paid exclusives ($10 wytches 1 from a couple of years ago), which skyrocket regardless of cost. As Anthony said, people will be willing to pay through the nose for con exclusives: they just have to be the right ones sold at the right time.

      • Anthony says:

        The original commenter is actually someone I know and see every year at Baltimore and NYCC. He has been greatly helpful to me in the past getting me into the Marvel Retailers Breakfast and the Diamond retailers summit as well. I can say that some of the best profits I made last year were from freebies that I grabbed repeatedly throughout NYCC week.

      • Wren says:

        Right on Anthony. Sounds like a cool guy/retailer. Wish there were more of them out there like that. Since this is my first year of speculating, I have to pay more attention to the NYCC freebies myself!

  2. comicbookhustlin says:

    The info is all out there but there is a spec window before the word gets really out usually….

    • Edwin B says:

      Convention prices don’t matter unless your willing and able to actually go to the convention. I think its safe to assume most people that are willing to pay eBay prices are aware that it is cheaper or free at the actual convention. People who want to know what something cost can and will find out anyway. This and many other sites out there are the kind of site for that. How many books come out every week at cover cost but the market still pushes the sale price up on eBay? eBay prices are dictated by the supply and demand of the market, not what the item actually cost or by what CHU posts. People sell the free stuff they got on eBay all the time. If a person wants it and that person can’t go to the convention, they will have to go by what eBay market dictates. This kind of CHU post have been around for a while now and convention items (free or not) have been selling just fine. Its going to be ok!

    • agentpoyo says:

      Umm.. this does nothing to potential value like Edwin B said.

      For instance, Marvel handed out a pair of Mini-Mates last year at NYCC for free. People were still buying these for up to $30 at times on the secondary market, knowing they were free to those at the convention.

  3. Christian says:

    Any images for the unnatural exclusive?

  4. Lonzilla says:

    No Lucille bat this year?

  5. comicbookhustlin says:

    ok yes minimates were free but know one new about em so hence why they were getting premium after market from NY last year. Like I said this info is out there, but not all specers are on it, who from chu s going to sdcc…? No problem listing the variants its just the price details and the DC (deadly class) being free and that wasnt hyped so could of been easier money…is all my piont. Im not new to this game.

    • Anthony says:

      Beau, I never said you were new. The Minimates we told you about at NYCC as we were flipping them for $20 each as we were getting them. Also mentioned to you about the LEGO figures we were selling for $180-250 each. It was a press release. Not many readers will be at SDCC, those that are should grab the DC books. I don’t think it will hurt the spec at all on the books. We have been doing these posts for cons for years and it has never hurt the resale value.

      • agentpoyo says:

        It doesn’t hurt the spec because the amount of people who can’t make it to the con are willing to pay for missing out. One can pay hundreds or thousands to get those freebies themselves or they can actually save money, buy the stuff they wanted at slight premium prices and everyone wins.
