Creators Dr. Travis Langley, Joe Wos Kick Off FAN EXPO Panel Series In Philadelphia, April 8-10
'Batman and Psychology' Author, "MazeToons" Creator to Host Numerous Panels Across FAN EXPO Shows Beginning at Pennsylvania Convention Center
By: FAN EXPO HQ
Dr. Langley, distinguished professor of psychology at Henderson State University, is author of Batman and Psychology: A Dark and Stormy Knight (2nd edition available now!) as well as a series of 12 books looking at the psychology of fictional characters and stories. He will lead his popular "Psychology of..." panels at FAN EXPO and host numerous other sessions with other experts in various popular culture fields. PsychologyToday.com features his blog, "Beyond Heroes and Villains." A popular speaker internationally, Dr. Langley has given talks at universities and has led or joined hundreds of convention panels and on the Comic Con-Fusion YouTube channel. He also happened to be an undefeated champion on the Wheel of Fortune game show. As Stan Lee described him, "This man is a genius!"
Wos, a cartoonist and writer from Pittsburgh, is the creator of the internationally syndicated MazeToons, a unique hybrid illustration that is part cartoon and part puzzle. The Emmy nominated host of Cartoon Academy, which appears on PBS affiliates nationwide, is also the artist for StarKist's Charlie the Tuna. At FAN EXPO, the author and artist of dozens of books and visiting resident cartoonist of the Charles M. Schulz Museum for two decades will lead creator panels that range from the basics up to advanced theory, all with his unique personality and touch that make his sessions both fun and informative for kids and adults alike. He will also host the popular Drink and Draw on Friday evening, with prizes provided by Wacom.
In addition to Philadelphia, these two veteran convention special guests and hosts will work their creative magic in FAN EXPO shows in St. Louis (May 13-15), Megacon Orlando (May 19-22), Chicago (July 7-10) and more to be announced soon.
The deep Artist Alley roster at FAN EXPO Philadelphia also includes such luminaries as Frank Miller ("Frank Miller: American Genius," "Batman"), Greg Capullo ("We Have Demons") and dozens of others, representing just about every comics franchise imaginable.
