Thomas A. Fowler, author of nerdy things here! I’ll be at the Spine Press + Post booth all weekend for Denver Comic Con! I’ll be at booth B11 alongside fellow author Melissa Koons. Come see us, we’ve got new books to sell, giveaways and convention exclusive sales! Take a look and we’ll see you there. Here’s a day-to-day breakdown of my panels for the day and what cosplay I’ll be wearing that day too!
FRIDAY, JUNE 30
Friday is going to be the panel-insanity day. With three panels in a 4-hour timeframe, you should come see me before it’s all said and done before I run out of energy to speak. Of course, I’ll be dressed as Johnny Cage from “Mortal Kombat X” so I’ll be cosplaying as a character who doesn’t know when to shut up. Aa a result, if I’m running out of energy, I’ll shout “”Let’s dance!” and keep on going. Full panel schedule is as follows:
Greatest Kaiju Movie of All Time
Room 605 from 12-12:50 p.m. Godzilla, King Kong, Pacific Rim, The Host. There have been an insane amount of cool kaiju movies. But which one is best? We’ve found the 32 best, but now we enter a tournament to determine which takes the real cake as the greatest kaiju movie of all time! Will a classic take the championship or will a dark-horse sneak in and be determined the winner? Audience members will help decide!
A Creative Life: Business and Balance
DCCP1 – Happy Harbor Room from 1:30-2:20 p.m. Many of us pursue a creative career, but we don’t know how to manage it financially. Hear from artists, musicians, and authors on how they achieve this. There will also be book giveaways happening at this panel so come by and enter to win!
Disney Villains: Deliciously Evil
DCCP1 – Happy Harbor Room from 4:30 – 5:20 p.m. Scar, Ursula, Jafar. let’s talk about the evolution of the Disney villain, their growing popularity and why we’re suddenly so interested in hearing their stories.
SATURDAY, JULY 1
Saturday always feels like the marathon day of a con. It’s always the longest, the most events afterward, it’s a great feeling to get through a Saturday at a convention. Thankfully, I’ve only got one panel so I can focus on being at the booth and sneaking in a few photos and autograph opportunities in between. The one panel I’ll be appearing at will also feature a book giveaway so stop by to potentially win a copy of some new releases hitting at Denver Comic Con from Spine Press + Post.
Unsung Hero: Heroic Qualities in Non-Traditional Characters
DCCP4 – Keystone City Room from 2-2:50 p.m. No one likes a cookie-cutter hero. They’re boring, you want the book/movie/game to be over. But when you get a hero with depth and intrigue you want to spend as much time with that hero as you can. Come swing by to talk about some heroes that didn’t walk the conventional line. Coincidentally, I’ll be cosplaying as Daredevil. And our giveaways may have something to do with Heroes and Villains so come stop by and win a copy of two new releases from Spine Press + Post.
SUNDAY, JULY 2
The big finish. It’s the day most people purchase what they’ve been lovingly staring at all weekend, you scramble to get into those last panels and make the most memories you can in the short time you have left before the next convention. Looking forward to Sunday to make more connections with fans and fellow authors alike, as well as an awesome panel and cosplaying as Ash from “Evil Dead,” “Army of Darkness,” and “Ash vs. Evil Dead.”
Other Kinds of Strength: Female Characters
Room 407 – Authors from 1 – 1:50 p.m.
Writing a complex and strong female character can be tricky, but these authors manage to do so very well. Find out the best ways to do that.
Hope to see you there!
Also, conventions can unfortunately have some situtations where people feel unsafe or uncomfortable, if at anytime you need somewhere to go, please come by our booth. We’re happy to be there for you!
