The San Diego Comic-Con site is now sporting Sunday’s schedule — Kid’s Day — which includes a lot of fun stuff aimed at the young’uns and some interesting panels:
10:30-11:30 Marvel: Women in Marvel— She-Hulk and Ms. Marvel are powerhouses in the Marvel U, now meet the real women powerhouses who work in Marvel Comics today! Writers Robin Furth (Dark Tower), Marjorie Liu (NYX), Sherrilyn Kenyon (Lords of Avalon), Jen Grunwald (editor), colorist Christina Strain (Runaways), and Occasional Superheroine’s Valerie D’Orazio are here to answer your question about their titles, announce new projects, and explain how more women are breaking into comics every day! Room 6A
Val’s the president of Friends of Lulu, which could explain her presence on the panel (either as a moderator or because of some Lulu-related announcement) but then she went and posted this on her blog in reference to the panel:
I know you might have questions, right now I can’t give you answers — but be sure to attend this panel and show your support for these talented women in the biz!
…which makes me wonder if the former Acclaim and DC employee has a new gig lined up. Also, if you are hanging out until the end of the show, there are two panels on Sunday afternoon that should be of interest — a return engagement of last year’s Grant Morrison and Deepak Chopra panel, and a spotlight on Dave Gibbons.
