Jewish Comic Con THIS SUNDAY & NEW Interview On The Beat!

4/27/18

This Sunday, April 29th, 2018, I’ll be one of the special guests at the Jewish Comic Con in Brooklyn. (More info here: http://jewishcomiccon.org/) The Jewish Comic Con is a great event, and I’ll be co-moderating many of the panels with Danny Fingeroth.

Also, I was interviewed by the amazing AJ Frost, Staff Writer for the “geek culture” site THE BEAT. You can check out the interview here.

In the interview, I talk about some of the more recent children’s books I’ve written, like:

  • THE JURASSIC PARK LITTLE GOLDEN BOOK, which is out now from Penguin Random House
  • An AVENGERS LITTLE GOLDEN BOOK, titled THE THREAT OF THANOS, which will be out in July 2018 from Penguin Random House
  • And a LEGO STAR WARS book (it’s the third LSW book I’ve written so far), titled THE OFFICIAL FORCE TRAINING MANUAL, which comes out in October 2018 from Scholastic.

Jewish Comic Con 2016

11/21/16

jewishcomiccon-small-logoRecently, I was one of the programming consultants for the Jewish Comic Con, which was held on Sunday November 13, 2016, at Congregation Kol Israel in Brooklyn, NY. The event was the brainchild of Congregation Kol Israel president Fred Polaniecki and comic book writer Fabrice Sapolsky. I co-moderated most of the panels at Jewish Comic Con (alongside fellow co-moderator Danny Fingeroth), and there was quite a bit of press coverage for this event. Articles about Jewish Comic Con were written up in The Wall Street Journal, The Jewish Week, Bleeding Cool, and more. AJ Frost, a blogger for comics site The Beat, interviewed me about Jewish Comic Con, my work as a guest lecturer and public speaker, and my recent projects as an author/comic book writer.
