Oh HEY! We are going to be at ECCC with a bunch of friends!
PANELS AND THINGZ!
ALL ON SATURDAY, MARCH 29th
12:20PM - 1:10PM
What We Mean When We Say “Comics”

Room: HALL C (610)
Comics have become more diverse and divergent in recent years than possibly ever before, as a medium, an industry and a community. But what, exactly, are we talking about when we say “comics,” anyway? Join panelists Kurt Busiek, Chris Roberson, Jen Vaughn, Shannon Watters and Allison Baker as they discuss all things “comic.”
2:00PM - 2:55PM
Springboard to Oblivion? The Promise and Peril of Digital Comics for Independent Creators

Room: UW PRESENTS COMICS & DIGITAL CULTURE SERIES (Room 204)

Allison Baker, co-publisher of the digital comics imprint Monkeybrain Comics, discusses how digital distribution is changing the landscape for comic creators from a business and financial standpoint.
5:40PM - 6:30PM
Self-Publish or Perish: All-Star Edition

Room: HALL D (602-603)

Based on the tagline in Becky Cloonan’s Eisner award winning book, The Mire, this panel features creators who have risen to prominence via self-publishing, had the opportunity to work for the Big Guys, and have chosen to stay with self-publishing. Panelists include Becky Cloonan, Wendy & Richard Pini, Chris Roberson, and Jeff Smith.

“GoGetters is equal parts National Geographic, rock ‘n’ roll, black boots, and gorilla punches, all wrapped up in a charming gift basket filled with sour patch kids and brass knuckles. Chris Peterson proves his art is some of the most distinct and expressive out there right now, while Shawn Aldridge’s writing—tighter than a primate in a dune buggy—is quite frankly more clever than we wish we all were ourselves. This book is F-U-N.”
