Met@Morph, the Second Life Comics Conference and Comic-Con

I wanted to share an invite to this online comics event:

Here comes Met@Morph, the first annual Web Comics Comic-Con and Conference held exclusively in Second LifeThe Comic Book Bin, along with The Center for EduPunx and the Institute for Comics Studies, invites you to attend the inworld gathering on Friday October 3, 2008.  The preliminary schedule features an international roster of web comics creators, Second Life comics creators, scholars, teachers, students, and designers.   If you have questions, please email Beth Davies,  You can see the conference schedule here. On October 3, simply teleport to Front Range, which will be public for the event.

I’ll be presenting at 2:30pm EST on Comics and Constraint. For those of you who haven’t used Second Life before, it is free and surprisingly easy to figure out the basics. I first used it to prepare for my session and it’s not more complicated than a video game of a more conventional sort. Hope some of the readers here will be interested and stop in.
