Talkaboutcomics, the free forum site for small press and webcomics creators run by Joey Manley, is opening up its 24/7 Nightstar Network IRC chat channel to other cartoonists and creators who wish to host their own live events.
Manley said, "We're hoping it will work sort of like a 24/7 webcomics convention, with press briefings, interviews, panel sessions, book club meetings -- whatever people want to do." The channel will have no sponsorship or membership requirements, according to Manley. "It's just a service. Nightstar was kind enough to grant us use of their servers -- we're extending our invitation in the same spirit of community-building that Nightstar has shown to us."
