God Is Disappointed in You with Shannon Wheeler & Mark Russell
God Is Disappointed in You, published by Top Shelf, is the tongue-in-cheek "condensed" version of the Bible you never knew you needed-hilariously modern, but surprisingly authentic-with illustrations and gags by New Yorker cartoonist Shannon Wheeler (Too Much Coffee Man). Wheeler and writer Mark Russell join together for an hour of unforgettable irreverence, including Q&A, audience sketches, and the hilarious-yet-accurate "ten-minute Bible." Plus: a taste of the new audiobook, read by Dr. Venture himself, James Urbaniak (The Venture Bros.)!

Schulz Museum). Panel discussion and Q&A to follow with Seth Green (Robot Chicken, Family Guy, Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and Art Roche (content director, Charles M. Schulz Creative Associates).

The Sergio & Mark Show
Usually, this is the panel where Sergio Aragonés and Mark Evanier make empty promises of more Groo the Wanderer to come. This time though, there actually is new Groo with the release of the long-awaited Groo Vs.
