New York Comic Con 2010 - Panel and Booth 2485


Curls Studio will be kicking off New York Comic Con 2010 with a panel on the morning of Friday, October 8 and three full days at Booth 2485!

Some of you may ask yourself, "What? Who is driving? Bear is driving? How can that be??!!" But you heard right. Yes. Let me repeat, We have a table AND A PANEL. I pitched the panel idea to NYCC this past summer and it was greenlit - so we will now rock NYCC. I spent quite awhile molding and organizing the panel into perfection. I hope you find the concept interesting and check it out. I wanted to make sure everyone on the panel is a pure creator and world builder who takes the extra effort to market themself by appearing at conventions and working above and beyond just creating a book. I also wanted to include writers who work with artists and artist/writers, so everyone on this panel does more than just draw pretty pictures. I am happy with how the panel shaped up and very excited to have Jimmy Palmiotti, Raina Telgemeier, Bryan J.L. Glass, Carla Speed McNeil and myself as panelists with Joe Carabeo as moderator.


In addition, Dave Sim sent me a copy of his book, Ultimate Cerebus Guide to Self-Publishing, which will be given away to an audience member. Thank you to Dave Sim who really went out of his way to illustrate a custom title page for our panel. What a nice man! I want to meet him one day.

Without further ado, here is more information about the panel. Please mark it our your calendars and join us the morning of Friday, October 8 to kickoff NYCC 2010!


"The Other Side of the Table: Lessons from Creators"
Date: Friday, October 8
Time: 11:15 am - 12:15 pm
Location: Room 1A21

Creating your product is only half the work it takes to succeed in the comics industry. What about the other half that we don't see as clearly after the product is released to the world? This panel will explore what it is like to be on the other side of the table, as a creator. We will discuss what it takes to exhibit at conventions, promote yourself, and gain a loyal audience - from the POV of professionals already behind the table. We will be giving away a signed copy of Ultimate Cerebus Guide to Self-Publishing by Dave Sim to one lucky audience member. Join creators Jimmy Palmiotti (Painkiller Jane, Jonah Hex, The Pro), Raina Telgemeier (Smile, The Baby-Sitters Club), Bryan J.L. Glass (The Mice Templar, Thor: First Thunder) Carla Speed McNeil (Finder) and Carolyn Belefski (Curls, The Legettes) in this conversation, moderated by Joe Carabeo.

It's always jarring to hear anyone describe Dave Sim as a nice man due to his... uh... complicated worldview (that he's been pretty open about),
but,
I will say this...
I would not be drawing comics if not for reading the original CEREBUS GUIDE TO SELF PUBLISHING. It is one of the most important things I have ever read. I didn't know he had a revised and expanded version out. I should hunt it down.
