This Friday-Saturday is Intervention in Bethesda, Maryland, just north of Washington DC. Lots of fun folks will be there, maybe you too? Believe it or not I am on a panel on Saturday late afternoon titled "The Outside Perspective: Webcomic review/news sites" — does that sound exciting? Perhaps we should rename it "WEBCOMIC MONSTER TRUCK DEMOLITION DERBY: SATURDAY! SATURDAY! SATURDAY*" but I don't think I can produce any actual monster trucks on one week's notice. Nevertheless it will be at the very least me, talking about writing about webcomics and maybe (knock on the nearest wood-simulated product) a few special guests.
The other panels going on at the same time include (1) a Q & A with the guy who does Dominic Deegan: Oracle for Hire who I have not met and so will not again; (2) a panel on Net Neutrality which perhaps is a panel I should have been on myself but now am wondering who is on it!?!?; (3) the Viral Video room where I am assured no one will catch anything (much); (4) Comic Press ADVANCED! workshop which actually will probably be 50% more useful than anything I say and (5) Club 242 Autopilot which is probably too hip for the likes of me. Oooh plus right afterwards at 6 PM in a different room is the Webcomics.Com Lightning Round with at least Brad Guigar (and maybe another Half-Pixelite?). Good thing I'm not going on right after that – you can't top genius like that…
By coming to my panel you're also bound to miss the chance to see anything at SPX at that time which includes a spotlight on legendary comic dude Jamie Hernandez; and Johanna Draper Carlson's panel on comics for younger readers with the likes of Raina Telgemeier and Drew Weing.
Wow I wonder what will happen at this panel from 5 PM to 6 PM to entice you to come despite the many other choices you (yes you!) could make this coming Saturday. Well… me too! Is there anything you think would be particularly interesting for me to talk about? Or do? I'm not above gimmicks here folks 🙂
