I have a number of panel recaps to write up for you all, so you should expect them to occupy the next few days on the site – and we start with a panel from the ICv2 conference held before the convention opened. Called ‘Comics First!’, the majority of the focus of the conference was on digital comics, and their relation to print.
The ‘From Creator to Consumer’ panel was about how the internet has given creators room to get their comics seen in new ways. From webcomics to Kickstarter, the panel was moderated by Heidi MacDonald, with panellists Jamal Igle, Simon Fraser, Calista Brill, Dan Mauser and John Roberts. The words below are my own.
