If you’re heading to Emerald City Comic Con this weekend, you probably have a number of items on your To-Do list. Top Cow Productions has a few sights you might want to check out. First and foremost, there are a few Top Cow creators on hand in Artists Alley, specifically Matt Hawkins (Think Tank, Postal, Golgotha) at AA2, Zack Kaplan (Eclipse, Port of Earth) at II11, and Ryan Cady (Magdalena, Warframe) at JJ12.
Matt Hawkins is also speaking on a panel on Friday, March 2nd. “Representation Matters! How to Respectfully Write and Draw POC and LGBTQIA Characters” will be held at 2:45 – 3:45 PM at TCC L3 – Room 1. In addition to Hawkins, the panel will include Brianna Cherry (Disney), Katy Rex (Doctor Who), Tia Vasilou (ComiXology), Valentine Barker (Raconteuse), and Nilah Magruder (MFK). Henry Barajas will moderate.
If you’re not attending ECCC, you can still catch some of the action. Hawkins will be on the SYFY live stream for two separate discussions. The first, Matt Hawkins: 25 Years in Comics will stream on Thursday, March 1st at 3:30 PM and the second, How to Break Into Comics, will stream on Saturday, March 3rd, at 11:30 AM. You’ll also be able to watch the SYFY interviews on their YouTube channel.
