Topic: Comic Cons
Continuing My Series On Creators that will be at the Comic Con International San Diego 2009, AND whom I think You should make a point to stop and see...
Is Alan J Porter, writer, who will be at several areas during this year's SDCCI!
First, for those that aren't familar with his work... here's Alan's self bio: "Publishing software executive by day - Freelance Writer by night. I blame it all on Tom Swift, Stanley Kubrick and Adam West. In the space of a few short months in the late 60’s I borrowed “Tom Swift And The Cosmic Astronauts” from the local library, not longer after I watched “2001”; at the movies, and thanks to Adam West and the Batman TV show discovered comic books!"
Alan sent me his schedule of where he will be at the Con, whether signing, on panels, etc.:
Wednesday, July 22nd
Thursday, July 23rd
Friday, July 24th
Saturday, July 25th
11:30am - 12:20pm - BOOM! Studios booth #2543- signing
2:00pm - 3:00pm - "The World of CARS" panel - Room 5AB
Please Note: I have only read Alan's 'World of Cars' work so far that he has written. Which is what most of his activities around this year's SDCCI is revolving around.
However, Alan will also have his new book from Hermes Press launching - STAR TREK: A Comics History, which I'll take a look at during the Con because I do like Star Trek! For those of you not attending the Con, I understand you can find details on this book on the Hermes Press website.
Alan will also be signing copies of "JAMES BOND: The History of the Illustrated 007" at the Hermes Press booth, which I have also not seen, but I'm sure my wife Tina will want to take a look at this as she is a bigger Bond fan than I!
BTW, if you are not one of the 125,000+ persons that are attending this great comic book & pop culture convention this month, then you could take a look at Alan's web site: http://www.alanjporter.com
