Autograph Hit: New York Comic Con Authors

So let's lay down some stuff here.  Through the grace of the generous and very patient Nicole I get to spend one day at NYCC and Tegs gets to spend the entire weekend.  This did not stop me from making a list of author signings for the entire weekend of course.  That's just who I am.  And everyone gets to benefit!  Rejoice!

Note this is really only a list of authors I have a pre-existing interest in.  And I can't be certain which signings will encourage you to buy the author's book beforehand (not the sort of thing they put on the website oddly), but I'll update this list as much as possible.  After all some publishers haven't listed their booth schedules yet.
