One of my favorite creators Jimmy Palmiotti is not only appearing at Baltimore Comic Con, he’s going to be on a great panel! I’m familiar with several of the people on this panel and believe me these are the people who are out there doing it, actually successfully publishing their own stuff.
Press Release: Baltimore Comic Con
Special guest and legendary inker/writer Jimmy Palmiotti joins the roster of comics creators speaking about their self publishing experiences at the Baltimore Comic-Con this Saturday, September 7th at the Baltimore Convention Center. The Self Publishing: You Can Do It panel takes place at 2 pm in Room 305. Other panelists include: Alpha Girl Comics publisher and writer Amy Chu (Girls Night Out), George O’Connor (Healed), Danielle Corsetto (Girls With Slingshots, Adventure Time), and Carolyn Belefski (Curls).
The one hour panel is a candid and informal session for new and established writers and artists who are looking to create and distribute their own comics digitally and in print. Each panelist has a different experience to bring to the discussion. Writers Chu, a former student of Scott Snyder and a Harvard Business School graduate, and O’Connor, an advertising copywriter, will talk about collaboration and business. Artists Carolyn Belefski and Danielle Corsetto will share their experiences in the webcomic space. And Palmiotti has been extremely successful with a series of Kickstarter campaigns funding his creator-owned titles in the past year.
This year’s Baltimore Comic-Con will be held September 7-8, 2013. Convention hours are Saturday 10 AM to 7 PM and Sunday 10 AM to 5 PM. The ceremony and banquet for the Harvey Awards will be held Saturday night, September 7th.
