William G, Joey Manley, Scott Kurtz, and Chris Crosby all agree on a substatantive issue; world fails to fall off axis.

And in other news, the Nerd Prom is listing some webcomics panels for next month; list courtesy of Kristofer Straub, as the SDCC site doesn’t seem to have this year’s programming info up yet. Check it:

6:00-7:00pm Webcomics 101: Getting Started – It’s easy to make a webcomic, but hard to do it well. Bill Barnes (Unshelved) asks fellow web cartoonists Dave Kellett (Sheldon), Jon Rosenberg (Goats), Brian Fies (Mom’s Cancer), Phil Foglio (Girl Genius) why they went online, and what artistic, business, and technological choices they made. Room 3.

4:30-5:30pm Webcomics 102: Finding Your Audience – When will your genius get the adulation it deserves? Bill Barnes (Unshelved) asks fellow web cartoonists Jerry “Tycho” Holkins & Mike “Gabe” Krahulik (Penny Arcade), Scott Kurtz (PVP), R. Stevens (Diesel Sweeties), and Kristofer Straub (Starslip Crisis) how they attract crowds online. Room 1B

6:00-7:00pm Webcomics 103: Making Money – Can you really make a living posting comics to the web? Bill Barnes (Unshelved) leads fellow webcomic businessfolk Robert Khoo (Penny Arcade), Howard Tayler (Schlock Mercenary), Phillip Karlsson (Dumbrella Hosting), Jennie Breeden (The Devil’s Panties) in a discussion on how they turn bits into bucks. Room 3

That last one looks particularly interesting; I’ve been wanting to see non-creator types like Khoo and Karlsson talk about their perspectives of what makes for success in this crazy world. Fleen will do its best to ensure full coverage of these sessions, and any others that appear on the schedule.

Phillip dropped a bit of that knowledge on me the other day, and all I could say was “Well huh. Yes. Yes that makes perfect sense.” I’m sure it will be a good panel.
