1:15pm: Kirby Centennial: Celebrating 100 Years of Genius!
If he were alive, Jack Kirby would have been 100 years old in 2017. Kirby’s career in the comics industry spanned over five decades and in that time he gave the world a Star Spangled Avenger, the industry’s first reboot, romance comics, summoned forth about the Marvel Age of Comics and spawned Gods at DC Comics (and that’s just the tip of the iceberg). Even today, over twenty years after his passing, his legacy, and his creations live on. Joins us at this panel as we reflect on the brilliance that was pure Kirby magic! Moderator: Dan Johnson.
2:30pm: The Great Debate: Star Wars vs. Star Trek
Never has there been a more passionate and enduring debate than this. Presented by Monkey Caviar Podcast, this audience participation panel will seek to bridge the chasm and form common ground among even the most casual Sci-Fi enthusiasts. Or else, it will divide them further. Moderator: TinyYourHost
