The full schedule for next month’s MorrisonCon is online, revealing just what those attending the “intimate gathering featuring a hand-picked selection of some of the industry’s most exciting comic creators” can expect. It’s a mix of familiar con panels – There’s even a spotlight on Robert Kirkman, although it goes by the more impressive name “We Love The Dead” – and more ambitious and unusual ideas:
MorrisonCon kicks off in style with a new collaborative project – a one-off, never-to-be-repeated performance created especially for this event. Grant Morrison teams up with Gerard Way and James Dewees of My Chemical Romance for The Con – a thirty minute spoken-word piece with music. Part short story, part history, part occult ritual, as Howard Hughes faces Liberace in a duel to the death for the soul of Las Vegas!
You don’t see that kind of thing at SDCC, admit it.
