Comicon Recap

My first time at Comicon in San Diego and it did not disappoint!  If you think that this is an event just for sci-fi die hards, then think again!  Sunday's schedule was chalk full of interesting YA fiction and writing panels including:

What's Hot In Young Adult Fiction moderated by Nathan Bransford and featuring top YA writers including Ransom Riggs (Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children) and Veronica Rossi (Through the Ever Night). 

Chronicle Books: Behind the Scenes of a Pop Culture Powerhouse

How to Create Your Own Novel: From the First Idea to Publishing, and What You Need to Sell Your Work to TV and Film

and for those Steampunk die-hards there was

Steampunk Generations: Views of a Genre from Both Ends of Time.

Here are just a few highlights (in picture) from Comicon 2013.

  1. Sounds fun. My actor/singer son would love to know about Buffy the Vampire Slayer the musical.

    1. It was quite fun. Buffy The Musical was one of the episodes in the sixth season of the series. Since then, there's been sing a long theatre showings everywhere (similar to the Rocky Horror Picture Show). They pop up periodically in various cities so he should keep his eye out.

  2. Looks so much fun!!! I am desperate to go to ComicCon.

    1. Next year! There are various different passes so you can go for either a day or 4. Just make sure to book early, they sell out fast!
