Saturday September 9, 2023 12:00 pm to 12:45 pm | Room: 337

Spying is often said to be the second oldest profession, and the world of modern comic books has seen a great assortment of undercover operatives since its beginning a century ago. Mark S. Zaid (national security attorney, Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide Advisor, comic book historian) will first showcase some of the coolest and rarest volumes in his collection and how they mirror the intelligence issues of their time, followed by a tantalizing discussion with Phillip Kennedy Johnson (Eisner award nominee, 007); Shawn Martinbrough (Eisner Award nominee, Thief of Thieves), and John K. Snyder III (Eisner Award nominee, The Secret Agent) about their writing and drawing some of the best current spy comics!
