    Default John Byrne at NYCC '17

    “I know John [Byrne] forever swore off comic cons, but let’s not remind him of that!” said Ryall, IDW’s Chief Creative Officer and Byrne’s editor for the last twelve years. “Really, though, the chance to publicly talk up the impact Kirby’s work had on his own career was the lure for John, and being able to do so alongside his close friend and fellow legend Walter Simonson only helped seal the deal.”
    The panel will take place on Friday, October 6 from 1:45pm-2:45pm in Room 1A21 and all in attendance will walk away with a Jack Kirby-related giveaway.
    “The Kirby 100 panel that we presented at SDCC this past July was completely standing room only, with many people unable to fit in the room,” said Goldstein. “So I’d recommend getting to this one early to ensure you get a seat.”
    Following the panel, Byrne will make his way to the IDW Booth #1844 for a special two-hour signing, from 3:30pm-5:30pm.
    Byrne’s signing will be a ticketed event. Tickets will be distributed on Friday morning to the first 100 fans to purchase a special con-exclusive version of his long-running series of Star Trek photoplays, Star Trek: New Visions 18: “What a Pain it is to Drown.” This convention-exclusive item will feature a special Byrne-themed photo cover! (And if you aren’t one of the first 100 people, don’t completely fret, because Byrne will accommodate as many standbys as time allows, too.)
    Because Byrne’s signings are a very rare thing now, IDW will make every effort to accommodate as many fans as possible while maintaining an orderly and professional experience. To that end, Byrne will be unable to sketch in anyone’s books. And each attendee of the signing will be limited to a maximum of three items; the first two must be IDW books or comics and the third item can be a non-IDW item.


    Anyone gonna go?

    I'd go both for Byrne and Walter...

    If only I could afford it (as in a flight to NYC and a hotel stay).
