December gets off to a hectic start for the creators of Powers Squared. For the first time, the book will be featured on a panel at a comic book convention. David will be moderating the panel Under the Radar: A Look at Indie Comics You May Not Know on Sunday, December 4th at 11 am at L.A. Comic Con.
“Comic book conventions are full of how-to panels and ones that celebrate established artists, brands, and characters, but there are few about discovering new books that you can’t find in a comic book store,” says David, who proposed the panel to the convention. In addition to David and Paul, the panel will also feature the other co-creator of Powers Squared (Trevor Hankins), one of the co-creators of Delegates (Tina Cesa Ward), and the creator of Pablo the Gorilla (Don Nguyen). “I think there could be hundreds of creators on a panel like this, but I wanted to showcase other creators that we know and whose work we respect.” Both books, and their creators, have been featured on the podcast On the Air with Powers Squared, which Paul and David do every week.
Three days after the convention, on December 7th, the fifteenth issue of Powers Squared will be released. This one is called “How They Met” and delves more into the day that Mocha met Marty and Eli Powers. “It’s a day that will change all three of their lives,” says Paul about the story.
Both artist Rachel Wells and colorist Julia Canon return, marking Rachel’s tenth issue and Julia’s third of Powers Squared. The book is available in both print and digital formats and can be purchased through The Campus Store on their website when released.
