Virgin Comics at Comic-Con

Headed to Comic Con in two weeks? Good for you. I have to go to a wedding, because apparently I'm at that age where every other weekend I have to go to a wedding. In any event, if you do plan on going, make sure you check out the Virgin Comics Booth (#2229), as well as possibly taking in the following panels: Stan Lee and Grant Morrison talk Virgin Comics (Thursday, July 24th, 10:45-11:45 am in Ballroom 20) Two of the most important creators in the history of comic books team up to discuss the bold new frontiers being explored in the art of storytelling. Legendary creator Stan Lee (Spider-Man, Hulk, Iron Man, X-Men) shares his insights on the world of comics, and presents never-before-revealed hints of his new superhero universe with Virgin Comics. Joining Stan is prolific creator Grant Morrison, contemporary comics’ most active mind, who will discuss his new Virgin Comics animated on-line series MBX, while offering his own insights on comics and engaging with Stan in a once-in-a-lifetime conversation about the long history and boundless future of their beloved medium. Virgin Comics is proud and excited to bring these two unique luminaries together for this unprecedented event. Grant Morrison and Deepak Chopra discuss Science, Soul and Superheroes (Sunday, July 27th, 2:45-3:45 pm in Ballroom 20) The tradition continues! As Virgin Comics prepares to launch the new animated on-line series MBX, series writer Grant Morrison once again teams with best-selling author and Virgin Comics co-founder Deepak Chopra to talk…superheroes! Come watch and join the ongoing conversation investigating the id, ego, superego, and spirituality of the superhero—we’re talking social theory with sound effects, four colors fused with existentialism. Two of the greatest minds of comics and culture talking…comics and culture—this is not to be missed! uClick: Mobile Comics, featuring Virgin Comics’ Larry Lieberman (Thursday, July 24th, 4:30-5:30 pm in Room 30AB) GoComics, the leader in on-line and mobile comics and manga, looks at a market truly coming into its own.
