Flynn, Gray, Stanley Making the Trip
Ian Flynn, Jon Gray, and Evan Stanley are among the current Sonic comic talent that are scheduled to appear for Archie Comics at the 2013 San Diego Comic Con next week.
Archie will hold down the fort at booth #2842. It’s not immediately clear if Sega will tag along for the ride to show off Sonic Lost World, as has occurred with previous Sonic flagship titles in the past. Signings will occur all four days; lead Sonic writer Ian Flynn will in fact be signing all four days at various times. The full schedule is below.
Also of note is a special Sonic and Mega Man themed panel, to take place Sunday at 2PM. Flynn will be joined by Paul Kaminski, Mike Pellerito, Gray, Stanley, and Ryan Jampole. It’s a noteworthy panel as it’s the first major one to fall after the settlement between Archie Comics and former writer Ken Penders, and many fans are anxious to wonder what effect, if any, that settlement will have on the series’s future direction. This panel could be the first indication.
More details available via a partial transcript of Archie’s formal event release below.
