Spotlight on Matthew Rosenberg
Comics writer Matthew Rosenberg quickly made a name for himself with indie hits We Can Never Go Home and 4 Kids Walk into a Bank. Now with titles such as Phoenix Resurrection, The Punisher, New Mutants, Rocket Raccoon, Secret Warriors, and Kingpin to his name, Matthew is emerging as one of the new faces of Marvel Comics. He doesn't really have anything planned, so come listen to him nervously ramble, yell out questions at him, or just eat your lunch at what may be the most awkward program of the weekend. He'll probably bring some free comics to give out, so get there early.
