This is my schedule for Dragon*Con. As you can see, my actual booth
time will be rather limited compared to other conventions. Of course,
that’s because Dragon*Con is not your ordinary convention. With all my
wonderful cosplay family members there I think I may be using my camera
more than my drawing tools at this show.
Carol and I should be arriving sometime in the late afternoon.
We’ve made no plans for the evening, so if any friends who are also
early arrivals want to get together, please let me know.
No actual convention activity but I will be attending the Bunny Hutch D*C Kickoff Party at 8:30 PM at the Marriott
I will be signing and sketching in Artists Alley (located in the Hyatt) from 1PM to 5PM
After dinner with friends I am totally free the rest of the night--
although my wife be dancing with drum group at night, and I really hope
to catch that.
The busy day! I will be at my table from10 am to 1 pm.
I don’t know how busy I’ll be then since the parade is running at the
same time, but it’s my only opportunity for table time, since I will be
going to the JLA Super Friends vs. The Legion of Doom Photo Shoot at
1:30 pm at the Hilton.
At 4:00 pm I’ll be in the International
South room in the Hyatt to watch my wife Phoenicia performing as part of
the Silk Road Performance Exposition.
After another dinner with
friends, I will be co-hosting, along with my good buddy Peter David, the
Page to Stage Costume Contest at 8:30 at the Hyatt
At 10:30 am I will be at the Wonder Woman Universe Shoot at the Hardy
Ivy Building just outside the Hyatt.
Then I will be in Artists Alley from 1pm to 3pm.
At 3:30 pm I will participating in the big Marvel Shoot at the Hilton,
followed by yet another dinner with friends
and finally a Sunday SCF Meet & Greet at the Hilton.
begins with the annual D*C Pig-Out Breakfast at the Metro Diner with many of my cosplay family
and then a final stint in Artists Alley from 1pm to 5pm (or whenever the crowds die down.)
I will also be doing some shopping with my lady as well as spending
most of my nights darting from hotel to hotel with camera furiously
I may very well need a vacation after this show!
THURS 9/25/14: Sirens #1 Launch Party w/ GEORGE PEREZ
By Steve August 28, 2014
Thursday 9/25/14 at THIRD EYE ANNAPOLIS
for event info on FACEBOOK.
First 20 in line receive a FREE gift!
Signing from 11AM-1PM!
Hello Third Eye Faithful!
We are practically falling out of our chair with excitement as we type up this one, Third Eye Faithful.
In fact, this one is such a big deal, that we had to give you guys at
least a month’s notice — so you can make sure you’ve got the day off to
take part in this historic Third Eye signing!
Folks, I’ll just say it: GEORGE PEREZ is coming to Third Eye. That’s
right: the legendary artist who helped co-create most of the Teen Titans
(like Cyborg, Raven, Starfire, Deathstroke and more!), brought the
Multiverse to life with CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS, and helped us really,
really hate to love Superboy Prime in FINAL CRISIS LEGION OF THREE
Perez is a true Titan (pun intended) in the world of comics, and his
fingerprints have been felt on nearly every aspect of both the Marvel
and DC Universes for decades.
Heck, the look and feel of most of the DCU’s most iconic characters, like Nightwing, is courtesy of Perez’s involvement.
So, when BOOM STUDIOS offered us the chance to host a signing event
for George’s incredible new BOOM series SIRENS… we jumped so hard at it
that we practically knocked ourselves cold hitting our heads on the
So, Third Eye Faithful, here’s the thing: we’re counting on you guys
to make this the BEST stop on George’s signing tour. He’s going to be
hitting a ton of amazing comic shops nationwide in support of SIRENS,
and he chose to make his DMV stop Third Eye for a reason — because you
guys are AWESOME.
I know that many of you are long-time fans of the man, but I also
know there’s some of you who may just be getting into comics — either
way: you have to take this chance to meet a man who has truly defined
the look and feel of modern age comics.
So, Perez is a man who needs no introduction: his
legendary work on everything from THE AVENGERS to CRISIS ON INFINITE
EARTHS to TEEN TITANS has made him a name that comic fans far and wide
However, most folks don’t know that Perez has done
some downright incredible creator-owned stuff over the years, and his
upcoming new series from BOOM STUDIOS is very much in the vain of that,
and we could not be more stoked about it, because George’s creator-owned
stuff has always been some of our favorite!
Perez has a reputation for doing incredible work on
strong female characters like WONDER WOMAN and SCARLET WITCH, so when we
saw he’d be putting together a team of female heroes that he completely
created, we knew it’d be amazing.
In this sci-fi adventure story that spans time and
space, featuring a team of female heroes that kick butt across the
universe, we’re given a cast of characters who harken back to iconic
heroines like Princess Leia, Alien’s Ripley, Kill Bill’s Beatrix Kiddo,
and Battlestar Galactica’s Starbuck.
As an intergalactic force enslaves planets across
the galaxy, the legendary team known only as the Sirens must reunite to
save the galaxy: but is that even possible when the Sirens themselves
don’t even remember who they are?
And, the rest of the universe only remembers them as villains?
This six issue limited series delivers some of the
best team-driven storytelling we’ve seen in a long time from a comic,
and it’s all written and illustrated by Mr. George Perez!
Get your copy of the Third Eye Comics variant of SIRENS #1 and get it signed by GEORGE PEREZ on 9/25!
