Scott C. Panel
Friday, October 12, 7-7:45pm, Unbound Stage
Moderated by: Alex Zalben
Renowned artist Scott C. will be on hand to discuss his artwork. Name an entertainment medium and Scott C. has created something for it. This year, he will be on hand to unveil Great Showdowns. Published by Titan Books, Showdowns are Scott’s interpretations of classic movie fight scenes, some known and others requiring a liberal interpretation of the word “fight.” Chief Brody vs. Jaws and Ripley vs. the Alien Queen fall into the real category while John McClane vs. Broken Glass and Spinal Tap vs. 12 inch model of Stonehenge fall into the fanciful interpretation.
Walter Simonson Panel
Friday, October 12, 7:45- 8:45pm, Room 1A08
Moderated by: Andrew Sumner
Name a character in comic books and Walter Simonson worked on him. Over 30 years ago, Walter Simonson worked with director Ridley Scott on a little known movie called Alien. That movie went on to becoming one of the greatest Sci-fi Horror movies ever made.
Heavy Metal magazine published the original illustrated story 33 years ago, in time for the original Alien. For this project, Walter worked closely with Ridley Scott and Archie Goodwin, a legend in the comic book industry. Titan Books reissued the long out of print graphic novel to coincide with the release of Prometheus.
At the NYCC, Walter Simonson will be on hand to discuss how he came to work with Scott and Goodwin so early in his career, as well as unveil the Artist Edition of Alien: the Illustrated Story.
Joe Simon Tribute Panel – Comic Con commemorates the late comics legend.
Friday, October 12 5:15-6:15pm, Room 1A01
Panelists: Stephen Saffel, Paul Levitz, Jim Simon, and more!
Joe Simon, the Co-Creator of Captain America, Fighting American, Guardian, Dan Turpin and other lesser known characters, is a venerable figure in the comic book industry. He is best known for his 50 year collaboration with Jack Kirby and for giving a young Stan Lee his first job in comic books.
To celebrate his life in comic books, the NYCC is going to have a birthday party. This celebration will take place on the day after his 99th birthday party. Although he is not going to make it to the party, Joe Simon died last year, the organizers assure you this is what he would have wanted.
