I'll sort of be at the New York Comic Con this weekend.

Comics Bakery isn't exhibiting this year. For a variety of reasons, one of which is that I have too much work to do and can't spare 3 full days away from my desk. However, I'll be at the show for a few hours each on Saturday and Sunday!
Saturday, February 7
Del Rey Manga Panel
Come see the unveiling of some pages from my forthcoming X-Men: Misfits manga! Dave and I will be on hand to chat and answer questions.
Sunday, February 8
Coming of Age Comics Panel
The transition between childhood and adulthood is an endlessly fertile subject for stories. Jeff Parker (X-Men: First Class), Raina Telgemeier (Smile), Jason Little (Bee Comix), and Mariko Tamaki with moderator Douglas Wolk (Reading Comics), will talk about the way coming of age has been addressed in comics, and how they've dealt with the theme in their own work.
1:00 PM â€“ 2:30 PM
Kids Love Comics booth
My Baby-sitters Club graphic novels will be available at the Kids Love Comics booth throughout the con, if youâ€™d like to pick one up! And come by and say hello, get a book signed, get a sketch, whatever youâ€™d like, from 1:00 - 2:30 on Sunday!
I'll also hopefully be able to wander the floor a bit both days, so I hope to get a chance to see some of you guys, if only for a few minutes...
