Dwayne At Comicon

I've just been talked into going to next week's San Diego Comicon International. I literally just decided today, so my schedule is loose. I've been added to the following panel on Friday:

3:00-4:00 The Black Panel— Featuring Reggie Hudlin (president, BET), RZA (Wu Tang Clan), Jeffery Wright (CEO, Urban Ministries), Denys Cowan (senior VP, BET Animation), Mike Davis and Mark Davis (Blokhedz), and Axel Alonso (editor, Marvel Comics). This is the definitive panel for what’s up in black content, and black content is hip content. Moderated by Michael Davis. Room 6A


DWAYNE MCDUFFIE - co-founder, Milestone, story editor and then some, JUSTICE LEAGUE, writer, BEYOND!

JOHN DOKES - head of marketing, Marvel Comics

also, Axel is EXECUTIVE EDITOR at Marvel

Apparently, "black content is hip content." Reet!

I'll keep adding to this thread as I learn more about my schedule. Hope to see some of you there.
