I had a grand time at the Titans Of Independent Comics panel at Wizard World last year, and I am delighted that panel host Danny Fingeroth has invited me back for a repeat performance:
David Chelsea is listening to
The Casual Vacancy (Unabridged)

Friday Jan 23:
TITANS OF INDEPENDENT COMICS WITH BILLY DOGMA’S DEAN HASPIEL, TOO MUCH COFFEE MAN’S SHANNON WHEELER AND DAVID CHELSEA IN LOVE’S DAVID CHELSEA (C120)
The model of comics creators tethered to one or two major publishers, working on adventures of corporately-owned characters is no longer the only game in town. Many of the top talents in comics work either exclusively on their own material, while others work both sides of the street, alternating independent work with mainstream assignments done in their own distinctive styles. Here, speaking about how they have forged their own paths, are some of the most distinctive creators in comics today: Dean Haspiel (Billy Dogma; American Splendor), Shannon Wheeler (Too Much Coffee Man; Villain House) and David Chelsea (David Chelsea in Love; Everybody Gets It Wrong!). The panel is moderated by Danny Fingeroth (Rough Guide to Graphic Novels; Studs Terkel’s Working).
Danny expects to add a fourth, possibly ovaried, panelist by the time of the show; keep watching this space for announcements!
