COMING TO AWESOME CON 2014! - THE OTHER SIDE OF THE TABLE: LESSONS FROM CREATORS (WASHINGTON DC EDITION)

Check out the film of the previous THE OTHER SIDE OF THE TABLE panels, Produced by Astray Productions and Joe Carabeo and filmed at New York Comic Con by Brian Sarvis in 2011.This edition The Other Side of the Table: Lessons from Creators, features the great comic book creators, Carolyn Belefski ( http://curls-studio.com/ ) Raina Telgemeier ( http://goraina.com/) Reilly Brown ( http://reillybrown.tumblr.com/ ) and David Gallaher ( http://davidgallaher.tumblr.com/ ) as they talk about the life of being a comic book creator.

THE OTHER SIDE OF THE TABLE
Creating your product is only half the work it takes to succeed in the comics industry. What about the other half that we don’t see as clearly after the product is released to the world? This important panel will explore what it is like to be on the other side of the table, as a creator. We will discuss what it takes to exhibit at conventions, promote yourself, gain a loyal audience, and hopfully survive the life as comic book creator in today’s wild west industry - from the POV of professionals already behind the table. Moderated by filmmaker/ comic writer Joe Carabeo.

Stay tuned for details on the date and room number for THE OTHER SIDE OF THE TABLE: LESSONS FROM CREATORS  (Washington DC edition) at Awesome Con DC

MAGIC BULLET #8 COVER BY STEVE LOYA REVEALED I know this image and article isn’t about a naked or half naked girl, but it’s just as good. As you know, I also write comic books that are illustrated by the awesomeness that is Carolyn Belefski. Carolyn Belefski is also the editor of Washington DC’s only comics newspaper anthology series, DC Conspiracy’s MAGIC BULLET, and just revealed today is the cover of MAGIC BULLET #8!The colors! Its nice that in a world of dark and gritty that some color can shine through I think.Also in MAGIC BULLET #8 Carolyn and I have a BLACK MAGIC TALES story called “A New Home”. If any of you who know about my recent distaste for how the 1% have been treating certain animals, then this is one of my purist reactions of their actions. With of course the use of Carolyn and I’s outlaw characters, Roxy and Dean. But also its a love story.Check out all the other great artists and creators in this newest issue.Jeff McClellandRachel ScheerMatt DembickiSean HillR.M.
