Very cool! Wish I were in that part of the country so I could attend. But thanks for posting the list! There are several in here that I wasn't familiar with, that now I can check out.
By the way, do you find that the webcomics field is primarily male, or is this not a representative list? Granted, names like Kris and KC could be female, but overall it seems that webcomics creators are mostly dudes.
From NYC, it would probably take around 3.5 hrs. At least it takes abt 3 hrs to get from where I live to NYC, and then Easthampton is another 1/2 hr from here.
