The Art of Cars Comics: The good folks at BOOM! Studios worked very hard coming up with stories that fit the continuity of Pixar’s classics but they do try to get a new artistic style for the comics too. See what the artists on The World of Cars, including writer Alan J. Porter, have in store for fans! Speaking of Porter, help him out with names of sleepy towns on Route 66 for upcoming issues. Location: Room 5AB | Day/Time: Sunday, July 26 from 2:00-3:00
Don’t Forget: Artists like Jeff Pidgeon and other Pixarians will be at the Con promoting their own personal works. Some will just be stopping by to check out the festivities so look out for them!
