This weekend, Boom! Studios Editor-In-Chief Mark Waid will take on an immense challenge - Saturday, October 3rd, 2009 at 1:00 PM, Waid will host a panel at Long Beach Comic Con moderated by CBR's Jonah Weiland titled "50 Questions in 50 Minutes with Mark Waid." Here's the great part - you don't have to even be there to participate!
We're asking our readers to post their questions for Mark in this thread on the CBR Forums (Mark promises not to take a peek), which Boom!'s Marketing Director Chip Mosher will comb through and choose the best 50 questions for the panel on Saturday. We need your questions no later than Noon on Friday!
What should you ask? Anything you like! You can ask Mark about his series "Irredeemable" and "The Unknown" for Boom! Ask him what it's like bossing creators around as the Editor-in-Chief . Ask him what it's like to be part of the writing team on Marvel's "Amazing Spider-Man." You can ask him about past series or even future series that might not have been announced yet.
"Uhh, CBR, duh, how can we ask a question about a series that hasn't been announced yet?"
Oh, don't worry, we're going to help you out there. As you'll see below, Mark's adding another title to his already growing list of Boom! Studios books: "Incorruptible!"
So, let's have some fun folks - get all the details on "Incorruptible" below, then post your questions to the official thread. Who knows, your question might just the be the that derails the entire panel!
