If you like listening to friends tell stories about stalkers, shitty jobs and making a living doing what they love, I think you will appreciate this.
Hey, dudes, there’s one last hurrah for me this convention season, and it’s a doozy! On December 11-12, Dragon’s Lair Comics in Austin, Texas, is holding Webcomic Rampage [link to Facebook Event]! It’s Saturday and Sunday, each day beginning with a panel featuring all of us webcomics guests, and culminating in some Webcomics Christmas Shopping. Who’s coming?
David Willis of Shortpacked!/Dumbing of Age
Danielle Coresetto of Girls with Slingshots!
Joel Watson of Hijinks Ensue
Bill Williams of Side Chicks
Randy Milholland of Something Positive
Jeph Jacques of Questionable Content
Josh Lesnick of Girly
These are all awesome people and Webcomic Rampage is going to be awesome. Be there!
Last year this was a fantastic and informal show with tons of creators and readers just hanging out and talking comics. I had a blast and can’t wait to do it again.
I’ve been dreading doing a massive con-report ever since I returned from C2E2 in Chicago. Why? Because so much awesome crap happened! Luckily I waited so long that someone else did all the heavy lifting for me. Fellow webcomicer and hotel roommate to the stars (or just me), Tom Brazelton did a very thorough job of summing up the best (or at least most notable) parts of the weekend. I was with or near him most of the time so you can just assume that we had roughly the same experiences.
Since Tom did all the grunt work, I will simply help paint a clearer picture of the weekend’s event with a few photos and videos.
[Me and my boothmate Gordon from Multiplex]
I will be at booth WC-B in the Webcomics Pavillion with Gordon McAlpin of Multiplex. We will be a few tables over from Girls With Slingshots/Something*Positive and right across from Shortpacked, WereGeek and Erica Moen/Lucy Knisley.
You’ll also be able to find (right in that same area) Theater Hopper, Explosm, PVP/Halfpixel/Webcomics.com, Least I Could Do/ Looking for Group and Topatoco featuring: Questionable Content, Pictures for Sad Children, MS Paint Adventures, Overcompensating, Wigu, Wondermark!, GunShow , SMBC, Nedroid and (one would assume) hundreds more!
There are a billion comic book and media types that are going to be there as well. A solid billion. I’ve counted.
I will also be a part of the Webcomics Town Hall panel which will take place Friday night in Room E450 from 7:15pm to 8:15pm.
That took me an hour to research and write. That should tell you how amazing this con is going to be. I hope to see you there!
