Christopher Jones’ C2E2 2014 Schedule & More!

C2E2 Logo

I am currently packing for my annual visit to Chicago – a strong contender for my favorite city of all time – and very excited to see the C2E2 crowd again! It really is a great show for comics fans and I look forward to every year.

I will be at table U18 in Artist Alley most of the time, but I do have some other events & signings going on!

7:30pm – 9:30pm  C2E2 Charity Art AuctionEvil Genius

I may not be present for this depending on how tired I am at the end of the weekend. But I do have a sketch up for auction! The sketch is of the “Evil Genius” character from Time Bandits, a movie everyone should see. It is ink on paper. Either way, go ahead and bid on some art – all proceeds benefit St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital!

 

Artist Alley

When I’m not off signing at FutureDude or on the Artist Alley stage, you’ll be able to find me at Artist Alley table U18. Here’s a handy map:

I’ll have all my Young Justice & comics 11×17″ prints available at my Artist Alley table, including a new Artemis Crock and Wally West print aptly titled, “Spitfire”. Prints are $20/ea or 3 for $50, which is a significant discount from my Etsy store.

Earths Mightiest Heroes - Framed prev DOOM! - Framed color prev 32346_436201606417440_836745009_n
 

I’ll also have some smaller, black & white prints for $5, including a Young Justice and a Batman ’66 print. As far as comics, I’ll have some Young Justice: Invasion Trade Paperbacks for $15 and I may bring a box of The Batman Strikes! comics… we’ll see.

Signatures are ALWAYS free, so feel free to bring stuff for me to sign.

Classic Doctor Who fans may be interested in picking up my new-in-2014 print, “For the Fans”, based on Peter Davidson’s fantastic 50th Anniversary special, “The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot“. This will be the first comic convention I’ll have it at! And of course I’ll have all my other Doctor Who prints, too.

I should also mention that, per usual, I will also have some healthy snacks available free for fans at my Artist Alley table. They are granola & fruit bars. They are completely safe and definitely are not made by Lexcorp. But I know conventions can get expensive and it can be hard to eat healthy at the food court, so if you need an energy boost, just stop by and ask me.

 

Sketches

I will be doing custom sketches at:

$80 for the first character + $60 for each additional character in the same sketch

However, my sketch list fills up FAST at conventions, so the earlier you bring me your request, the better.

 

FREE Mini-Prints!

I debuted my very popular “Disco Nightwing” free mini-print at C2E2 2013, so it seemed fitting to debut a NEW free mini-print at C2E2 2014! Presenting “Fastest Man Alive”! Visit me at C2E2 or any other convention in 2014 to get your own free signed copy!

Fastest Man Alive FREE MINI PRINT v2

 

Don’t worry – I’ll still have Disco Nightwing mini-prints and Christopher Jones Art buttons available free at least through the rest of 2014!

Young Justice Meet-Up

Greg Weisman and I have been organizing a little guerrilla programming in the form of Young Justice Meet-Ups at as many conventions as we can – we know the Young Justice fandom is still alive and kicking! So… want to meet other Chicago area Young Justice fans? Take some cosplay photos? Just hang out for a while with me and talk Young Justice?  Come to the hall across from the Speed Dating room on Saturday at 7:15pm! See you there! SYMBIOSI!

YJ Meetup C2E2 2

 

FutureDude

FutureDude Entertainment, publishers of “Parallel Man” (the  new sci-fi action-adventure project I’ve been working on this year,) will have an Exhibitor booth and they will be giving away all kinds of goodies! Including FREE 11×17″ posters featuring my art and colored by Young Justice colorist, Zac Atkinson!

I will be signing & sketching over at FutureDude’s booth throughout the convention (see my schedule above). Here’s a handy map to find FutureDude at C2E2 (Booth 518):

Well, I think that about covers it. I had better get back to packing!  See you at C2E2!

 

Anime Detour 2014!

Anime Detour 2014

I’m going to be a guest this weekend at Anime Detour 2014! It will be my first anime convention and, to be honest, I’m not quite sure what to expect. But I have no doubt that it will be a lot of fun, and I’m sure I’ll meet lots of Young Justice and Batman fans!

Here is my Anime Detour panel schedule:

Friday

6:30pm – Young Justice & The Batman Strikes!

9:30pm – Chris, Chris, Chris & Kris

Saturday

12:00pm – Manga & American Comics

4:30pm – Getting Started in Comic Art

When I’m not on a panel, I’ll have a table in the Dealers Room! Here’s a handy map to find me! (I’ll be RIGHT next to FUNimation, so it shouldn’t be hard…)

In addition to the FREE buttons and Disco Nightwing Mini-prints, I’ll be selling comics, trade paperbacks, art prints and doing a VERY LIMITED number of custom character sketches. (Find me early in the weekend if you’d like one.)

And with that, I’m heading to the Anime Detour Guest reception… can’t wait to meet a lot of cool people this weekend at Anime Detour!

Okay, at the 11th hour, I am finally posting my FULL schedule master post for Gallifrey One: 25 Glorious Years. I can’t even tell you how busy I’ve been in the past week to only be getting to this now. But, I’m now in sunny & warm Los Angeles surrounded by several thousand Doctor Who fans. And it is awesome.

Anyway, I’ve been a tad more involved in Gallifrey One this year – I designed this year’s logo, and provided art for the Registration postcard, as well as helping to organize a large Young Justice event at the convention. I’ll be on a couple panels this weekend, and I’ve made sure to have some table time every day so I can be found! So, let’s get down to business, shall we?

 

Here’s my full Gallifrey One: 25 Glorious Years schedule:

Friday: 

1:30pm-3:00pm - Exhibitor table
3:30pm-4:30pm - Four Color Wonderland (Programming B)

Saturday: 

10:00am-3:00pm - Exhibitor table
3:00pm-4:00pm – Kaffeeklatsch (Greg Weisman/Christopher Jones)
5:00pm-6:00pm – Young Justice Panel (Programming B)
6:30pm until ??? – Young Justice Meet-Up (Lobby)

I’ll have ALL of my prints available while I’m at my hall table, as well as a VERY LIMITED number of Young Justice trade paperbacks.

Of course, I’ll have FREE buttons or Disco Nightwing mini-prints for my Twitter & Facebook followers!

And don’t forget to ask me for a ribbon! I brought 150 of these with me and when they’re gone, they’re gone!

Young Justice Events!!

young justice gally panel

There will be a Young Justice panel at 5:00pm on Saturday, Feb. 15th in Program Room B! Confirmed panelists are listed below but with this crowd, you never know who might turn up.

    • Cameron Bowen – Voice of Robin (Tim Drake)
    • Kris Carter – Composer
    • Christopher Jones – Comic Book Artist
    • Stephanie Lemelin – Voice of Artemis
    • Eric Lopez – Voice of Blue Beetle
    • Vanessa Marshall – Voice of Black Canary
    • Michael McCuistion - Composer
    • Masasa Moyo – Voice of Bumble Bee
    • Lolita Ritmanis – Composer
    • Andrew Robinson – Writer
    • Brent Spiner – Voice of the Joker
    • Jason Spisak – Voice of Kid Flash
    • Greg Weisman – Producer

There will be a short time for signing after the panel. Then starting at 6:30pm, join Greg Weisman, myself, and other Young Justice contributors for a casual Young Justice fan meet-up in the LAX Marriott lobby. The meet-up is open to the public, but it is during a Doctor Who convention, so expect crowds and to spend your time standing! Also, full disclosure: if it becomes too crowded, the hotel may ask anyone not attending the convention to leave.

Also, I’ve created a special SYMBIOSI ribbon for anyone attending the Young Justice panel or the Meet-up afterwards.

Okay – I think that’s all the Gallifrey One news & info! Looking forward to seeing lots of fellow Doctor Who and Young Justice fans this weekend! Whew- I’m done with this JUST IN TIME to make it to my first table appearance. Better get going! Allons-y!

Guest of Honor at Anime Detour 2014: The Manga was Better

Anime Detour 2014

I am pleased to announce I’ll be a guest of honor at Anime Detour in MN this year! The theme is, “The Manga was Better”. (The convention is sold out by now, but I’m told it’s still possible to buy a transferred membership via Craigslist, Twitter, Facebook or Tumblr.)

There will be a Young Justice meet-up (TBA), and I’m hoping to drop in on some other meet-ups while there, so if you are running one you think I’d be interested in, let me know! ESPECIALLY a tumblr meet-up. That would be cool. I’m submitting some panel ideas of my own about comic art, but if you’re running a panel you would like me to be on, assuming it would fit in my schedule, I’d be more than happy to join you! I love participating on fan-run panels!

I will have a table all weekend in the dealer area so you guys can find me, and I WILL have signed Disco Nightwing mini-prints and probably some other goodies for FREE for my followers.

Disco-Wing-Mini-Print-Ad

Photos & signatures are also always absolutely FREE. I’ll have $5 prints and $20 prints available. Also, since this is a convention in my city, I’ll be able to bring my whole stash of comic books for sale. I will have Young Justice trade paperbacks and if you’re looking for The Batman Strikes comics, I have lots!

Here is the full Anime Detour 2014 guest list:

Anime Detour 2014 will be my first Anime convention and I am really looking forward to it! I will admit I haven’t watched much anime in the past decade, but there seems to be a whole lot of crossover with Doctor Who, DC Comics and more in the Anime crowd so I’m sure I’ll be right at home! Stay tuned for more details as plans are finalized!

Out Wednesday: Batman ’66 #7 – featuring FALSE FACE!

batman-66-7-cover_52d95ef00df430-35477056

BATMAN ‘66 #7 collects the False Face 2-parter written by Jeff Parker and drawn by myself (Christopher Jones) that already appeared in digital form with all kinds of fansy-shmancy motion enhancements. The solicitation describes it this way: “Horrors! Bruce Wayne is trying to scam a jewelry store and put the blame on poor Aunt Harriet? Or could it actually be the work of that mysterious master of disguises, False Face?

The story also features a guest appearance by The Riddler, and the debut of the Batman ’66 version of The Batplane! I’m a huge fan of the 1960′s Batman Television Series, so it was a huge treat to get to draw this story, especially given the great Jeff Parker script and the appearance of two of my favorite Bat-villains!

Check out the great Mike Allred cover above, and you can see previews of the first five pages of the story with artwork by me below!

The comic issue features a second story written by Tom Peyer and drawn by Derec Donovan. Find out how crime really pays when the Clown Prince of Crime tries to downsize his mob in “The Joker’s Layoff Riot.”

Be sure to pick the issue up at your local comics shop or in digital form!
