With the announcement made over the weekend of the Image Founders Panel featuring all seven of Image Comics founders together again under one roof, Comicon International has decided to move the panel from room 5AB, which holds 500 people, to room 6A, which can seat 1,000. Time and date remain the same.

10:30-11:30 Image Comics: The Founders—Erik Larsen, Jim Lee, Rob Liefeld, Todd McFarlane, Whilce Portacio, Marc Silvestri, and Jim Valentino reunite for Image’s remarkable 15th anniversary. Join the conversation as they explore Image Comics’ beginnings, impact, and future in the comics industry. Moderated by George Khoury (author of Image Comics: The Road to Independence from TwoMorrows Publishing). Room 6A

I really hope all seven do show up, and no one makes an excuse to ditch the panel because of any lingering animosity. Shall we start a pool?

    Well, if history is any indication…

    Jim Lee will show up, but he’ll be incredibly late, and everyone will say he isn’t as good as in 1993.

    Erik Larsen will want to do everything himself, wiring the mics, setting up the chairs, and polishing the floors.

    Whilce Portacio will arrive, but no one will notice.

    Marc Silvestri will take his chair to another room halfway through the conference.

    Jim Valentino will explain how the entire thing SHOULD have gone, but never actually get there.

    Rob Liefeld will hype it on his website, but only stay for the first five minutes before moving on to something new.

    Todd McFarlane will just have Greg Capullo do it for him.
