Bobby's Dragon Con Panel Schedule

I will be at Dragon Con in Atlanta, GA (Sept. 3 - 6). Although I do not have a ppermanent table presence in Comic Artist Alley at the Hyatt, I will be moderating and participating in several panels throughout the weekend.

Here is the list of panels that are confirmed. I expect to add more to this list.

Sunday

Monday

Monday
My Big Fat Dragon Con Experience

I have also been informed that I will have signing times set aside for me, but at this point I do not know those times. The information booth at the entrance to the Comic And Pop Art Ballroom at the Hyatt should have that information during the con. I'll also have books with me at the panels.

I will try to update as much as possible from the convention, but that is not always easy to do. I will post updates through Twitter most often. You can follow me at @bobbynash or go to www.twitter.com/bobbynash.

I hope to see you there.
