New York Comic-Con ’09: The Secret Identities Panel!

Secret Identities E.I.C. Jeff Yang here. I guess I’m the last SI Guy to post on this thing, so I might as well kick in here with this video, an edited-down “highlights version” of one of our two New York Comic-Con panels—the one focusing on the book itself, and featuring myself, E.A.L. Keith Chow, contributor Greg Pak, with an assist from his partner on “The Citizen” Bernard Chang, and Senior Artist Jef Castro. Providing insightful moderation of our little circus was Giant Robot‘s Anne Ishii, who’d just come off of moderating a previous panel on the manga version of Bat-Man that was published, well ahead of its time, in Japan in the late 1960s. Ningin.com did a nice writeup of the panel here.

And now, on to the video! (Parry’s not the only guy with editin’ chops around this here ranch, kids…okay, I suck compared to him, but still…represent!)

Big thanks to Keith’s bro Raymond for manning the Canon HG10 for us on this one. Sadly, he wasn’t around the following day, so I don’t have any footage of the equally terrific panel I moderated called “The Multicultural Mask,” featuring Stuart Moore (Iron Man; Firestorm), Perry Moore (Hero), Robert J. Walker (Delete), and Jann Jones (Coordinating Editor, DC Comics)—not to mention Greg Pak again, who pulled double duty for us at NYCC, all power to the Pak. However, a nice writeup on that panel is right here. And I’ll see if I can find any still photos around somewhere.
Coming up next: A highlights version of our most excellent ECAASU workshop, which was videotaped in whole by our bodyguard/host representative Dave From Toronto. Very cool guy. Really helped keep the paparazzi at bay. Not that I, Jerry or Keith had to worry—the kidz all made a beeline for the man who put the bacon in BLT, our M.E. Parry…
