Countdown to Comic Con 2008: 13 days
The entire Halfpixel gang is going to Comic Con International in a couple weeks! Scott Kurtz is going to be exhibiting in the main Webcomics area and Dave, Kris and I are going to be at a table with Image Comics.
We’ll be doing two panel discussions during the convention — both on Friday.
Fri., 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
Fri., 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
