We’ve been talking about a big announcement for a few weeks and now we can finally share the details with you!

Next month at WonderCon, Josh Flanagan and Conor Kilpatrick will be reuniting with their co-founder Ron Richards for the first time since he left to go work at Image Comics! They’ll be getting together to host the Spotlight on Darwyn Cooke panel!

iFanboy has a long history with Darwyn Cooke, which began when they co-hosted the after party for the release of Justice League: The New Frontier at WonderCon in 2008, and continued on throughout the years in (often drunken) adventures both on and off the record. At times it seems as if Darwyn loves nothing more than to bust iFanboys’ balls, so it should be a really fun discussion!

Here’s the description of the panel:

Darwyn Cooke Spotlight Panel
Revengeance! The original hosts of iFanboy reunite to talk creator-owned with Darwyn Cooke. Join Ron Richards, Conor Kilpatrick and Josh Flanagan as they come together one last time to face off with Darwyn in a free-wheeling discussion of his new work, the industry and whatever else crosses their mind.

Our plan is to record the panel and put it out at as a podcast for those who cannot attend, but we make no promises or guarantees.

Here are the particulars of the event:

What: Spotlight on Darwyn Cooke
Where: WonderCon 2015, Anaheim Convention Center, Room 213
When: Sunday, April 5 at 12:30pm

If you’re going to be at WonderCon this year, stop on by! Let’s pack the room with the iFanbase, otherwise there are going to be a lot of confused Darwyn Cooke fans wondering about the three idiots on the dais. Hope to see you there!

  1. This is nice of course but,
    This is the thing you couldn’t even mention for a month?
    I thought this was going to be some kind of website change or a job or something with a development deal.
    I think you could have mentioned that this ‘might’ happen.
    I mean was there money on the line??
    I don’t get the secrecy.

    • Well, if one of them couldn’t make it, there would have been egg on their face. I would really like to know where they’re going to have dinner afterwards though. Shaking with excitement over here.

    • I agree, it was probably they wouldn’t know if it would work out so they didn’t want to commit to something before the schedule was all worked out and confirmed.

    • Maybe you’re being rough on Conor/Josh? Part of it may have been that they didn’t want people spending money on Sunday passes to WonderCon for this, only then to have to say it wasn’t happening. But thankfully it is 🙂 I’ve got a 3-day pass to the con, and though I wasn’t planning on going Sunday, now I just might! The panel is sure to be fantastic.

  2. Great news,guys!Glad to see that happen!

  3. Wow, congrats guys! I won’t be making it to Wonder Con, so here’s hoping you guys get to release it as a pod! You guys always has such a great rapport with Darwyn Cooke and i never get tired of hearing that man talk about comics. I suppose it’s also great to hear the original three back together!

  4. Now I really wish I could go to Wondercon! Fingers crossed that you do get to record this — Darwyn’s panels are the best. Nobody busts balls like he does and still gets across the point that he kind of likes you.

  5. Sounds fun, wish I could go. You guys have all the fun. 🙂

  6. I am really bummed that I won’t be there. I’ve done almost all the Darwyn shows…
