I'll be giving two panel talks on Friday, with four cartoonists who are surprisingly good at public speaking (...this is not, generally, the rule among my species. Most are timid forest creatures).
Come check out the talks, if'n you get the chance!
3:00-4:00 An Introduction to Webcomics: The single largest explosion of new comics talent in history is happening online. Did you know that there are over 18,000 webcomics? Some of them have millions of readers. Most of these comics are free. Is this news to you? Then come and find out what you've been missing from Phil Foglio (moderator and writer/artist Girl Genius), Brad Guigar (Evil, Inc.), Dave Kellett (Sheldon), Scott Kurtz (PVP), and Kris Straub (Starslip Crisis). Room 3
6:00-7:00 How To Make Webcomics: Live!: The four authors of Image Comics' breakout book How to Make Webcomics present a live version of their popular weekly podcast. Scott Kurtz (PvP), Dave Kellett (Sheldon), Kris Straub (Starslip Crisis), and Brad Guigar(Evil Inc) discuss some of the core issues in webcomics: making money and building communities. Room 8
