We’re just four very short days from Anime Mid-Atlantic 2013. AMA is one of my favorite cons and it’s one I’ve had the honor of being a guest at for years. This year, I will be hosting several panels (detailed below) as well as finally unveiling my newest book available this summer by Haven Publishing. But first, the panels!
Cosplay Fitness – co-hosting with the legendary Big Danny T, we will be talking about various diet and exercise protocols to best maximize one’s cosplay presentation.
Top Five Mecha Artists – a quick countdown of the best artist and illustrators in the giant robot genre.
How to Get BACK Into Anime – For the classic fan who isn’t sure where to begin with the modern anime landscape, this panel will help you re-acclimate.
Comic Animes – A quick rundown of the anime reimaginings of comic book properties.
Evolution of Anime Art – This retrospective will look at how the illustration and animation styles in mainstream anime have changed over the past 50 years.
American Animation – co-presenting with Charles Dunbar, we will be looking at anime’s US brother and how the twin markets have grown together and evolved together.
Anime Mid-Atlantic is one of the highlights of my year and if you come, I think it will be for you as well. See you there!
