Unshelved Creators MastermindedSDCC Webcomics Panels

Bill Barnes of the webcomic Unshelved moderated the Webcomics 101 series of panels at San Diego ComiCon and has a series of interesting posts about his experience at his website, Overdue Media.

Barnes along with Gene Ambaum, are the creators of Unshelved which has a library as its setting. It's a great example of a comic (or any entertainment medium) mining an area of life for material that is not a staple of contemporary storytelling (which usually seems to revolve around cops, lawyers, interstellar freighter pilots, etc).

Thanks again to Bill for organizing and moderating three incredibly successful panels. I really think that a lot of constructive, intelligent discussion went on and, speaking for myself and the Blank Label guys, we enjoyed being on the panels...and were really happy with the results.

So, shout out to Bill, basically. Nicely done.
