I’m somewhat busy at this New York Comic Con. Instead of a straight chronology, I’m going to break it down according to type of “thing” and include the address so you can find them properly. This interactive map is pretty neat if you need some help.
THINGS OF MINE TO BUY
There’s two main things that will be new at the show. They are…
My much-mentioned new comic with Ryan Kelly and Jordie Bellaire. It’s a historical story about the Spartan slave hunts. It’s in the shops on Wednesday, but there’s an exclusive edition for New York Comic Con that you can buy at the Image Booth (1444).
UBER VOLUME ONE EXTENDED HARDCOVER
The collection of the first six issues (which is seven issues worth of comics). It also includes 160 pages of extra behind the scenes material, which is scripts, interviews, notes, stuff and things. It’s enormous and beautiful and you can buy it at the Avatar Booth (1920).
Being places where you can see me sitting at the front of a room, being uncomfortable. Full details through the click-through link.
12:15 – Image: Behind The Creations Panel (1A14)
12:30 – Avatar Press Uncut Panel (1A23)
1:15pm – Inhumanity & All-new Marvel Now panel (1A06)
1:30 – Uber Unveiled Panel (1A01)
Fans of close reading may note this is somewhat (er) cramped. Basically a bunch of crossed wires lead to some cross-over. Basically, I’ll be leaving the Inhumanity panel after half an hour to go join the Uber panel 15 minutes late. Caanan and William will be holding the fort for the first fifteen minutes on the Uber panel.
11am – Marvel Unlimited Tickets Only Panel (1A08)
12pm – Marvel House Of Ideas Panel (1A22)
As you’ll see from below, Avatar is basically my home base for the con. If I’m not anywhere else, the best place to try and find me would be the Avatar booth.
In terms of signing, I’ll basically sign anything I’ve written. If you bring a lot of comics and there’s a queue, I’ll normally sign 5 or so, and then ask if it’s okay to go to the back of the line and loop around. If it’s quiet or you’ll wait long enough, I’ll sign anything. Worth noting that for signings times to promote a specific book (The Image and Avatar ones) I’ll have to prioritize people who are buying stuff, otherwise I will be attacked by a publisher with an axe, and rightly so.

I DON’T CARE ABOUT YOU! WHAT ABOUT RYAN KELLY! SHE’S BEAUTIFUL! SHE’S KILLING IT!
Ryan’s with me at the Image signings, so you can get her signature there. She also has her own table at CC1 in Artist’s Alley. Go say hello.
YOUNG AVENGERS COSPLAY MEET UP?
Editor Supreme Lauren’s asked me to see if I can arrange this, as she’s looking to wave a camera in people’s directions to immortalise their beauty and/or try and encourage you to manoeuvre me inside an enormous wicker man for a nice little burn-me-alive.
I’m going to suggest Young Avengers cosplay meeting at Stephanie Hans’ table (L5) in Artist’s Alley at 4pm on the Saturday. Come along. It will be a fun time.
