And for those who only check this blog for the design talk, I'll be participating in a panel discussion on design in comics on Saturday at 1:30, room 203A. Here's a description of the panel from moderator Rich Barrett:
"What is it that draws your wandering eye to one particular book on a shelf that is brimming with loud, look-at-me, multi-colored covers? It is the design of the book that makes that first impression count. Join cartoonist Rich Barrett (Nathan Sorry) as he dissects the art and function of Design with some of the most important and innovative names in the business: Jonathan Hickman (FF, The Nightly News), Chris Pitzer (all things Adhouse) Matt Kindt (Superspy) Drew Weing (Set to Sea), Eric Skillman (Liar’s Kiss) and Jim Rugg (Afrodisiac)"That's a pretty fun line-up, I'm sure you'll agree. Hopefully I won't embarrass myself too badly speaking in public!
