Panel Details:

Writers Unite: Pitching and Writing Creator-Owned Comics
Creator-owned comics have once again grabbed the imagination of the comic- reading community, and publishers are looking for fresh ideas from a new generation of talent.

Listen closely as creators Matt Kindt (Justice League of America, Mind MGMT), Charles Soule (Swamp Thing, Strange Attractors), Rob Venditti (Green Lantern, The Surrogates), and moderator Jim Zub (Pathfinder, Skullkickers) discuss pitching their hit comic series to publishers and offer advice on how to climb to the top of the treacherous submission mountain, along with comic writing techniques and amusing anecdotes.

TR!CKST3R Symposia 3: World Building
The worlds through which our stories weave aren’t cut from whole cloth: we craft them with careful consideration, always aware of what lies behind the curtain and beyond the horizon, aware that these elements inform the focused view of our central story. If we do our jobs right, a simple glance will convince our audiences that the worlds we create seem fully realized and rich with culture and ideas unique to the intentions of our tales. Religion, politics, social structure, science, and history all play into the coloring of the worlds we create; entering into a storytelling relationship with our audience requires a crafted experience that’s considered from all sides, at all times.

Join today’s leading storytellers as we discuss, in this 2-hour workshop environment, just how worlds are born and are set to collide with confidence. Participating storytellers include Paul Pope (Battling Boy), Scott Morse (Strange Science Fantasy), Ted Mathot (Cora, Rose and Isabel), and Jim Zub (Skullkickers).
Saturday July 20 10:00am – 12:00pm
East Village Tavern Bowl (TR!CKST3R)

Mainstream Talent and Indie Spirit
Paul Guinan (Boilerplate), Sean ‘Cheeks’ Galloway (Gumshoe 4 Hire), Jim Zub (Skullkickers), Laurie Breitcreuz (Pure Heroine), and Matt Bostic (One Hand Tony) discuss how the passion for creator-owned projects can be kept alive while making a name in the mainstream, and how networking and new technologies have enabled the power to shift back toward the creator. Q&A session moderated by Rich Birdsall and Ray Carter (Whodinii.com).
Saturday July 20, 2013 2:30pm – 3:30pm
Room 5AB
