So, here we are at the second day of Charlotte's gigantic celebration of comics and pop culture. I'm chilling in my spacious one-bedroom apartment at the moment, getting ready to hit the Charlotte Convention Center (that's, you know, the site of the whole thing). So what cool things are schedule to take place today? Here's what I'll be checking out:

NOON — ALTER EGO PRESENTS: CHARLTON COMICS RETROSPECTIVE | Room 216 — If you are a fan of the Watchmen comic, you should get some insight on the characters that inspired that work of art. Legends like Dick Giordano and Roy Thomas will be on hand.

1 p.m. — DC NATION | Room 213BCD — Editors Ian Sattler and Brian Cunningham and a bunch of DC creators come to evade questions and tell a bunch of jokes. Well, maybe they might answer a few direct questions.
