The Walking Dead 10-Year Anniversary Highlights Image Comics’ SDCC Panels

At this year’s San Diego Comic Con, which runs from July 18th to the 21st (with a preview night on July 17th), Image Comics will be represented by a full slate of programming. The comic book publisher will have seven panels during the convention, with a celebration of the 10th anniversary of The Walking Dead likely to be one of the most popular tickets during the convention. This panel, occurring on Thursday, will feature creator Robert Kirkman talking about the past decade of the book and his plans for the future. Kirkman will also be on hand on Saturday for “Robert Kirkman’s Skybound Panel,” where he will discuss Invincible, Thief of Thieves, Ghosted, and of course The Walking Dead.

Image has a bunch of other notable comic book creators in panels, too. Ed Brubaker (Fatale), Frank Barbiere (Five Ghosts), Tim Seely and Mike Norton (Revival), Kurtis J. Wiebe (Peter Panzerfaust), and Ron Marz (Witchblade) will discuss genre comics in Saturday’s panel, “Image Comics and the Genre Fiction Renaissance.” Science fiction will receive its own special panel on Friday called “Rocket Ships, Laser Guns, and Dystopias,” featuring Nick Dragotta, Joe Harris, Joe Keatinge, Amy Reeder & Brandon Montclare, Ales Kot, and Matt Hawkins.

 The other three panels sponsored by Image Comics are: “Twenty-One Years of Top Cow,” (Saturday, featuring Marc Silvestri, Matt Hawkins, and guests); “A Conversation with Steven T. Seagle and Teddy Kristiansen,” (Thursday, featuring a conversation between the two longtime collaborators); and “What’s Next at Image Comics” (Saturday, featuring Ed Brubaker, Joe Casey, Amy Reeder, Nick Dragotta, and Rick Remender). Some interesting news is sure to come from these panels, so stay tuned.
