The Future of Comics Begins Thursday at WebVisions


Tomorrow is your chance to see me and a distinguished panel of colleagues (including Axe Cop cartoonist Ethan Nicolle, who drew the above image) speculate on The Future of Comics at WebVisions Portland, the annual conference on all things Web (spoiler alert: The Future Of Comics is probably going to involve the Web). Here’s copy from the Website:

While blockbuster films based on comic book characters have been a box office bonanza, the comic book industry as a whole has experienced radical change. Industry powerhouses like Marvel have diversified their non-print offerings by unveiling Infinite Comics, a new digital format targeting mobile devices. For smaller publishers and independent artists, the future of comics will be built on the shifting sands of change, but opportunities abound for self publishing, crowd sourced funding and digital distribution.
