The Kesha panel is throwing off my whole plan! I really love her but it means I couldn’t see either of my other panels on my list.

3PM-4PM, Room 9
The Mighty Crusaders
From site: "In 1940 MLJ Comics, the company later re-branded as Archie Comics, published Pep Comics #1 and created the First Patriotic superhero, The Shield. They would go on to create a pantheon of superheroes including fan favorites like the Black Hood, Comet, Hangman, Jaguar, and many more, collectively known as the Mighty Crusaders. These heroes' stories have been reprinted in England, France, Germany, and Brazil. They have crossed over to radio, film, and the pulps. Presented here is the 80-year history of the greatest superheroes of the Archie Universe by moderator Rik Offenberger (MLJ Companion) with panelists Vito Delsante (writer, The Fox), and Mark Waid (writer, Impact Comics)."

This is comic history that is often overlooked - might be interesting. Plus Mark Waid is a panelist.

I am a huge fan of Nate Powell, so this one:

10:00 am - 11:00 am: First you MARCH; Then You RUN, Room 6DE
Congressman John Lewis’s collaborators on RUN, the acclaimed follow-up to his National Book Award–winning and #1 bestselling graphic novel series MARCH, join to celebrate the astounding creativity and influence of the congressman’s unparalleled journey as a comics creator. Artists Nate Powell and L. Fury, Lewis's congressional aide and co-author Andrew Aydin, and the late congressman’s son John-Miles Lewis will discuss the making of RUN, comics’ unique role in U.S. history, and the special place Comic-Con held in the civil rights icon’s heart. The panel will be followed by a “Children’s March” held in tribute to the marches led by Congressman Lewis at Comic-Con over the years.
