This was the final panel I attended Sunday, and my final panel for MegaCon 2014. It started around 1:45 p.m., at the same time the AGES OF HEROES ERAS OF MEN panel was ending, so I joined the Kickstarter panel already in progress. The panelists were Jimmy Palmiotti, Frank Tieri and Nelson DeCastro. They answered questions from the audience and shared their experiences with Kickstarter projects to give advice on the do’s and don’ts of doing a Kickstarter project.

This was the third and final panel I attended at MegaCon on Saturday, March 22, 2014. It was not a how-to on breaking in to comic book stores or comic book publisher offices, but rather an informative panel of five comic book professionals sharing their stories on how they broke in to the industry and began their careers. During the discussion, they shared tips on how to’s and not do’s for others to get their break in the comic book industry.

No, you haven’t missed an episode. Preparing to cover seven stories in SUPERMAN ANNUAL 6 took longer than expected, and home life used up some more spare time, so we will jump back through the time barrier after my MegaCon coverage and finish up the Superman titles cover dated January 1963, and resume our regular schedule through the time barrier. In this episode, I highlight the convention guests and panels I plan on seeing, including those I had to miss on Friday because my car was in the repair shop until the early afternoon that day.
