Webcomics Weekend, March 20-22on March 19, 2009 at 2:10 am
This Friday through Sunday, March 20 – 22, I’ll be in Easthampton, Massachusetts at The New England Webcomics Weekend! It’s the first event of its kind as it isn’t just a small scattering of booths tucked away in the back of a comic, sci-fi or anime convention – webcomics are the sole reason this event was put together. As such, the guest list reads like a who’s who of webcomic creators, including many of my favorites like Danielle Corsetto of Girls With Slingshots, Scott Kurtz of PvP and Meredith Gran (the organizer of the event) of Octopus Pie, among others. In several ways this seems like an historic event for webcomics, and is a marker for just how far they’ve come and how fast they’re growing, and I’m honored and excited to be a part of it.
If you’re going to be there, please let me know as I’m going to try and meet all the webcomic fans, artists and writers that I possibly can. I’ll be bringing t-shirts, and giving away free bottons and sketches, so if you see me, come on up and introduce yourself and I’ll give you something as long as I have stuff to give.
I’ll also be blogging and twittering about the event as it’s happening so check back here at JEFbot.com or my twitter feed for updates throughout the weekend starting with a pub crawl on Friday night, where a mass of webcomics people will be drinking and talking webcomics throughout Northampton. I’ll be among them so come share a pint and some conversation if you’re in the area!
