Gallifrey One Schedule...

With the snow flying here in Upstate New York, I'm pulling everything together for my trip to L.A. tomorrow for the Gallifrey One convention.

Lots of great events on the convention schedule, and I'll be appearing on a couple of panels about Doctor Who comics, as well as a Kaffeeklatsch where fans can sit down with some of the convention guests in a more relaxed setting and ask lots of questions while we all drink substantial amounts of coffee.

Friday at 1 pm, I'll be on a panel called DOCTOR WHO IN THE COMICS, with Gary Russell, Tony Lee, Pia Guerra, Paul Cornell, and Richard Starkings. Looking forward to this one, since I'm a huge fan of everyone on the panel with me. I'll try not to embarrass myself too badly. I've already gone very fanboy on Paul Cornell at two previous conventions, so this might be my chance to redeem myself as a cool-headed, unflappable comic book professional.

Sunday at 11 am, there's the mysterious-sounding IDW COMICS DOCTOR WHO PRESENTATION with IDW editor Denton Tipton, Tony Lee, and myself. The details are shrouded in secrecy, but I suspect there will be a few interesting announcements about the future of IDW's various DOCTOR WHO comic book projects.

And on Sunday at 2:30 pm, Tony Lee and I will be the guests for one of the aforementioned Kaffeeklatsches. Attendees have to sign up in advance and participation is strictly limited. Though hopefully the amount of coffee won't be.

I'll also be doing a signing, along with a number of the other guests, on Saturday at 2:30 pm. If you're going to be in the area, stop on by and say hello.

That's awesome! I have read a few Doctor Who comics and am huge DW fan. I thought your book was the best. Incredible art and the 10th Doctor how can you go wrong. I love your style. I was bummed when your story arc ended. Look forward to seeing more thought. Maybe you can get them to make an a DW iPhone app. It would be awesome to have some great DW comics with you at all times.

Cheers, Paul! Thanks for the kind words, and I'm glad you liked the work. And I can tell you that IDW is working on bringing the DW comics to the PSP and iPhone as we speak. It's too early to know for sure, but they ARE working on it.
