Room: T304

IDW President Greg Goldstein, VP of Marketing Dirk Wood, and editor Sarah Gaydos for a lively discussion of your favorite Publisher’s upcoming schedule! Top Secret Reveals! Prizes! Q&A!

God is Disappointed in You 2: Apocrypha Now, Sunday, April 10th, 2:30p.m. – 3:30p.m.
Room: T301

It’s the second coming! Their first book, God Is Disappointed in You, was an irreverent-yet-faithful adaptation of the Bible that got everyone talking. Now, Mark Russell (Prez, The Flintstones) & Shannon Wheeler (The New Yorker, Too Much Coffee Man) are back with a follow-up book, Apocrypha Now, about the stories that DIDN’T make it into the Bible. Some of these stories were forgotten, some suppressed, others were just too freaking weird for the Bible (and that’s saying something). In a special advance release for Emerald City, Apocrypha Now is about what the Bible DIDN’T tell you.
