Thursday, 4:30-5:30 The Best and Worst of Manga 2010 -- It's been a wild year for manga, with new publishers springing up while old ones fade away, and sometimes it seems like the one constant in life is that One Piece will go on forever. Join our five panelists -- Deb Aoki (manga.about.com), Jason Thompson (Manga: The Complete Guide), Christopher Butcher (The Beguiling), Tom Spurgeon (comicsreporter.com), Shaenon Garrity (Skin Horse) and Carlo Santos (Right Turn Only) -- as they talk about the best and worst manga of the last year, the manga they want to see translated, and the most anticipated upcoming releases. Room 3

Saturday, 3:30-4:30 International Comics and Graphic Novels -- Comics are popular the world over and Comic-Con always includes an impressive gathering of worldwide talent. Journalist Tom Spurgeon talks with special guests Moto Hagio (Japan: Drunken Dreams), Emile Bravo (France: My Mommy is in America and She Met Buffalo Bill), Milo Manara (Italy: Click!), and Kathryn and Stuart Immonen (Canada: Moving Pictures, Russian Olive to Red King) about graphic novels with a more international flavor.

Please Note: that I'm doing this panel and not doing the comics reprints panel, as they overlap. Andrew Farago will do a far better job with the reprints panel that I could hope to.

if you have a question you'd like me to ask any of the stupendously talented cartoonists on the panel,
