SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 29 
11:00 AMTHE EMPTY PAGE: MORRISONCON WRITERS ON WRITINGIt has been said that an author's greatest nemesis is a blank page. MorrisonCon's talented wordsmiths discuss their processes in transforming the empty page into the masterpieces that we have come to love. This group of comics innovators exposing the aspects of comics writing and the comics business that we as readers never get to see and delve into the depths of the creative process at your behest.

Featuring: Grant Morrison, Robert Kirkman, Jonathan Hickman, Jason Aaron, JH Williams III
 5:00 PMCREATION MYTHS: SCIENCE, RELIGION & MAGICJonathan Hickman and Jason Aaron are architects of worlds of science, magic and myth. Bringing their unique and perhaps conflicting perspectives together, these two authors sit down to discuss the brink of human understanding and beyond. Is Arthur C. Clarke's belief that “any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magicâ€� correct? Hickman and Aaron discuss how the theory holds up, and take an analytical journey through hard science to theoretical hypotheses to the work of the Gods. What inspirations are drawn from centuries of theological doctrines and the course of scientific discovery and how are they be applied to modern storytelling?

Featuring: Jonathan Hickman, Jason Aaron

6:00 PMTRIAL OF THE SUPERGODSAs day one comes to a close, use that last un-blasted brain cell to join our guests in some light-hearted trivial revelry. Master of Ceremonies, James Sime, will lead the festivities, taking our guests to task with your wiliest, wildest, or wackiest tests of trivia which can be submitted throughout the day in the MorrisonCon Salon. A perfect bit of madcap fun to cap off an intense day of creative energy!

Featuring: Everyone!


SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 30
11:30 AMPAGE ONE, PANEL ONE: A COMICS WORKSHOPJung's concept of the Collective Subconscious suggests that ideas live within all of us awaiting emergence. Participate in a collaborative comics workshop illustrating this theory facilitated by former Marvel talent coordinator, Bon Alimagno, in which you and some of MorrisonCon's guests team up to act as equal creative colleagues to bring one of these shared ideas to fruition under a Creative Commons license.

Work alongside with some of the brightest minds in comics. Create live art together.

Featuring: Jason Aaron, J.H. Williams III, Chris Burnham, Bon Alimagno, + special guests

I'll also have some signing times sprinkled in there as well. Other than that, I'll just be hanging around, enjoying the madness. I'm expecting to have a blast. Hope to see you there.

With issue #16 of WOLVERINE AND THE X-MEN, which hit shelves this week, we unfortunately must say goodbye to artist Chris Bachalo, who moves on to another as-yet-unannounced new project. I owe many many thanks to Chris for kicking off this series in such a great way, for designing the Jean Grey School and for an all-around amazing run. He's been a terrific artist to work with. As wildly inventive as they come. So inventive I had to change the way I wrote my scripts. Chris has so many unique ideas about how to layout a page, that our editor Nick Lowe encouraged me to move to more of a Marvel style, meaning more of a loose plot instead of a full script. So I did, and loved it. My scripts still weren't exactly in the most traditional Marvel style, in that they still included dialogue (when I get a chance in the next few days, maybe I'll post some examples), but it's been an exciting challenge just to break out of my usual routine and a thrill to watch Chris work his magic. I wish we could've done more stuff together. Maybe someday.

As for WOLVERINE AND THE X-MEN, we've thankfully got an amazing roster of artists to pick up the slack, like Mike Allred (whose Doop one-shot is coming up next), Jorge Molina (who wraps up our AvX tie-ins in a huge way in issue #18), Steven Sanders (who shows us Angel's all-new mission in issue #20) and of course Nick Bradshaw, who's already cranked out some gorgeous work on this series and returns to help kick off our second year with issue #19 and then handles our crazy new Murder Circus arc beginning with #21. And as if that wasn't enough, come next year we add Ramon Perez to the mix, fresh off his Eisner win for Best Penciller.

I'm one lucky dude.
