It's here! The convention of all conventions is a mere two days away, and while there will be a minimal TMNT presence on the Con floor this year, there are still some points of interest that TMNT fans might want to be tuned into.
- TMNT artist Michael Dooney will be in Artists' Alley throughout the week. You can find him at table DD22. (And note that the location of Aritsts' Alley has changed this year!)
- Michael Zulli, writer and artist of the Soul's Winter trilogy from TMNT Vol. 1, is a special guest at this year's Con. And as is the case with all special guests, he'll have a panel dedicated just to him. Check out the Spotlight on Michael Zulli panel on Friday.
