TerrifiCon is dedicated to giving comic book fans the chance to hear how their favorite stories came to be. In the past we had the creative teams behind such epics as Marvel's Secret Wars, DC's The Death of Superman, 30 Years of Writing Spider-Man, Denny O'Neil and Klaus Janson discussing the Dark Knight and more. This year we continue that tradition with panels featuring top industry writers and artists.
Here's some of what we have planned this year and where the fans can find out the secrets behind classic comics and more!
UNTAMED: THE PSYCHOLOGY OF MARVEL'S WOLVERINE
with Dr. Suzana E. Flores and Roy Thomas (Saturday)
Wolverine. Logan. Weapon X. By any name, Marvel Comic's savage, brooding antihero is, in his own words, the best at what he does--killing with gratuitous precision. Paradoxically violent yet humane, the beer-swilling, cigar-smoking mutant with retractable claws is universally misjudged in the Marvel Universe yet esteemed by fans worldwide. Clinical Psychologist, Dr. Suzana Flores explores Wolverine's development from bit character to modern legend over more than four decades, with a focus on his enduring appeal as an allegory for resilience through torment.
