Welcome to “Cheat Sheet,” ROBOT 6′s guide to the week ahead. Below you’ll find a roundup for Marvel’s announcements from South by Southwest, our contributors’ picks of the comics of the week, and the top events to watch for in the next seven days.
In less than an hour, the doors will open on MegaCon 2010, being held through Sunday at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida.
This year’s convention, whose media list boasts a number of actors from the Star Trek and Star Wars franchises — plus, hey, Being Human‘s Russell Tovey! — also includes a solid line-up of comics creators: among them, Eric Canete, Jim Cheung, Frank Cho, Amanda Conner, Darwyn Cooke, Chuck Dixon, Dick Giordano, Justin Gray, Adam Hughes, Barbara Kesel, Phil Noto, Jimmy Palmiotti, George Perez, Don Rosa, Ethan Van Sciver and Marv Wolfman.
MegaCon continues from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday.
