Matthew Holm at NY Comic Con this Sunday!

Yes, I'm going to be taking part in a panel at New York Comic Con on Sunday, February 8, from 3-4 PM:

Sunday, 3:00 - 4:00 p.m.

Panel — “What Are Kids Reading Now? Graphic Novels & 22 Pagers”

Location: Panel Room 5 (1A17)

Panel Description: There's such a wide selection of graphic novels out there from the serious super hero drama of The Watchmen, to the nostalgic humor of The Best of Archie, to the sober reflections of three different 9/11 chronicles. In fact, there are so many book that many teachers, parents, and comic book lovers can't quite tell what to buy or borrow. That's where we come in. Join a panel of teachers, teens, and comic pros as we review and discuss the merits and values of comics' fertile field of facts an fiction. What's new, old, entertaining, and educational? From the controversial to the comical, we'll cover it all and have a good time, too!

I'll also be doing a book signing earlier that day from 2-2:30 PM at the Kids’ Comic Con booth.

So come on out! It's part of the Kids Day portion of Comic Con.

Bad News: You'll have to make a Sophie's Choice between our panel and that panel with Betsy and Matt Bird and, um, Sophie. Wow. An actual Sophie's choice.
