The blog from 30,000 feet

I just off the red eye flight from LA to New York – my travel agent must love me, because she gave me a seat that had an infant in the row behind me. An infant that had a scream that could wake the dead. And scream it did… The. Entire. Flight. As such, given that I got all of 2.34 minutes of uninterrupted sleep, I have made the seemingly foolhardy decision to not indulge in daytime sleep but rather power through another day of New York Comic Con preparation. Hey, when duty calls (especially comics-related duty), you better believe that I answer.

In keeping with this week’s theme of all things Comic Con, I wanted to share the overall Fox Atomic / New York Comic Con panel and signing schedule (below). Bear in mind that the schedule below lists just timed events; all throughout the show at the Fox Atomic booth we’ll have all sorts of wackiness going on – exclusive giveaways, a prize wheel, mutant ‘make-overs’, the lovely Fox Atomic Ladies, computers for you to enter the 15 Gigs of Fear promo or check your MySpace profile (we ARE the official MySpace meet-up point ;), a petting zoo (ok, maybe not), and more!

Keep checking this spot, because I do have a little surprise to announce later this week... Again, if you’re headed to the show, please be sure to stop by and say hi!

The schedule is as follows. Note that all signings take place at the Fox Atomic booth (#553):
