MidSouthCon 29 starts this afternoon at the Hilton Memphis (off of Poplar Ave). I will be moderating 2 panels this year. They are:
Today at 7:00 pm:
|Promenade 1||Local Comics & Art Scene||Local artists discuss their comic projects, the Memphis art scene, and community groups.||Adam Shaw, Andrew Chandler, Lin Workman, Martheus Wade, Nicki Howe|
Tomorrow at 11:00 am:
|TN Ballroom C||Creating And Playing In Worlds of Adventure||Kurt Busiek (Conan, Astro City), John Jackson Miller (Star Wars) discuss creating and playing in Adventure Worlds||John Jackson Miller, Kurt Busiek, Nicki Howe|
I’m very excited at the opportunity to meet and talk with Kurt Busiek, and it’s always fun to see JJM.
Come on out and say hello! Day and weekend passes are available at the door.
Knight Errant was announced a few months ago following the cancellation of the comic series that made me into a comics fangirl, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, but details have been few and far between. John gave a bit more info about our “lone female Jedi” protagonist, Kerra Holt, and the state of the Galaxy, Far, Far Away during the Knight Errant timeframe in the interview.
I like the character design for Kerra. It is reminiscent of the design for Jarael in KotOR – attractive but not comic book proportions. Also highly capable and able to administer a butt-whipping. Female Star Wars fans now have another cosplaying alternative to Slave Leia!
Per the interview, the first issue is set for release on October 13. This series has been on my pull list since it was announced, so I’m very excited!
