Last Programming Notes for SDCC

Few more panels of note, y’all.


12:30-1:30 Flight: A New Kind of Comics Anthology— The critically acclaimed Flight anthology has begun paving the way for a new vision in comics. Flight artists Kazu Kibuishi (Daisy Kutter), Phil Craven, Kean Soo (Jellaby), Jeff Smith (Bone), Steve Hamaker, and special guest Scott McCloud (Understanding Comics, Making Comics) talk about creating comics for a new generation of readers and artists. Room 9

4:00-5:00 How to Make Compelling Web Comics— Lee Marrs (Pudge, Girl Blimp, Indiana Jones) will present the most direct methods and pitfalls of creating both webcomics and interactive hypercomics, with demonstrations and examples. The direct-from-the-trenches “Marrs Hypercomics Recipe� will be shared by this Inkpot Award winner and Emmy Award–winning TV art director. Room 3

This appears to a usage of the word webcomics somewhat different than you and I are used to.


10:30-11:30 History of Webcomics— Join writer T Campbell (Penny and Aggie, Fans, Rip and Teri) and some possible surprise guests to discuss 13 years of online comics, the challenges, conflicts and controversies of chronicling them, and where the project goes from here. Room 9

Unfortunately, gonna miss this one — my flight home is Sunday morning. Anybody want to do some feet-on-the-street reportage? Click the contact link.

I went to Marrs’ panel at APE, and her terminology aside, it’s pretty straightforward webcomics. However, anyone who’s thinking about attending should be warned that her subject matter is really basic stuff, geared toward print comic artists who’ve thought vaguely about going online but haven’t done any research or preparation.
