TRON, Pirates of the Caribbean, the Muppets and Epic Mickey were the topics of discussion today during the Disney Publishing Worldwide panel at the 5th annual New York Comic-Con which kicked off today in New York City.
Briefly touching upon TRON, preview pages of the prequel graphic novel TRON: Betrayal and The Art of TRON: Legacy were shared. Since the titles themselves as well as many of the other TRON: Legacy titles (mostly geared towards tweens) were made available to browse through at the Disney Publishing Worldwide booth, there wasn’t much more needing to be mentioned on the topic.
On the heels of his overwhelmingly successful Fairies, Fiends and Flatulence international tour, Eoin Colfer will tour the U.S. as part of the Artemis Rocks! show.

Artemis Rocks! launched with two sneak preview performances in Southern California on August 4th and 5th; the U.S. tour runs from September 14th through the 24th. This talk show-style performance features a monologue from Eoin, a first rate writer and part time comedian.

Her Majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah of Jordan will make a rare public appearance at Borders bookstore at Columbus Circle in New York City on April 27 to promote her children’s book The Sandwich Swap.
In the story, based on part of the Queen’s own personal experiences, Lily and Salma are best friends. They play together and stick together through thick and thin. But who would have ever thought that ordinary peanut butter or plain old hummus could come between them? Lily and Salma don’t quite understand each other’s tastes, but does that mean they can’t be friends? They understand far better than a lot of grown-ups that these things hardly matter and that friendship is the most important thing of all.
