Planet Comicon and the Panels of Doom

We’re just a few short weeks from Kansas City’s largest comics show, Planet Comicon. I’ve been going to Kansas City conventions for nearly two decades now, and Christopher Jackson and his team put together a terrific show that builds on the past successes of the legendary Mo-Kan conventions of the 80s and 90s.

I have many a story to tell of those past conventions (which now famous comics pro was known as “Sylvester” and why?), but I’ll save them for another day. For now, I’m concentrating on the upcoming weekend of April 5 and 6.

I’ve offered to help develop the line-up for panel presentations for the show. Plus, I might also be moderating some of the panels. After hearing this I went directly to Mark Evanier’s panel moderator tips over on his blog. With Evanier’s expert advice, I hope to avoid making an utter fool of myself.

Of course, nothing’s set yet. Even if I just end up filling the water glasses, I’ll be happy to participate and help out.

Any catastrophe I might cause aside, it’ll be a great show. Be sure to attend and track me down to say “Hi” while you’re there.
