Comics on Handhelds Today

Category : 08: A Graphic Diary, Festival, futurecomix, SHOOTING WAR March 17, 2009

To my friends attending SXSW: today is the big day. I’m signing copies of both 08 and SHOOTING WAR at the Day Stage Cafe at 3:30pm today:

And shortly after, the moment we’ve been planning for arrives at 5pm:

Joining me onstage are Diesel Sweeties creator Rich Stevens, Uclick.com CEO Douglas Edwards, Dr. Sketchy’s creator Molly Crabapple, Google Android engineer Dave Bort and The Longbox Group’s Rantz Hoseley; judging from our meetup dinner last night, there’s going to be some serious discussion about hardware’s influence on the storytelling and format and what these changes mean for publishers, creators and readers. We’ll be using #comicsonhandhelds to filter/respond to tagged tweeted questions during the panel.

And those of you not attending… you’ll still be able to interact with us over Twitter during the panel using #comicsonhandhelds. The panel will be available in audio+video online soon as well; watch this space for details.

@melanie I know; I’m so embarrassed that it’s taking so long to post, but the full-length panel audio is actually coming from SXSW themselves. I promise to post it as soon as it’s released, so do stay tuned.

[…] Dan Goldman tells me he is moderating a discussion at music/culture festival South by South West (orSxSW as the hip kids call it) about comics on mobile platforms, still an emerging and developing form of the media (and with E-readers like Kindle, web-enabled large screen cellphones and more to come I’d imagine one publishers and creators can’t ignore). For those who can’t actually be there Dan says they will be using Twitter to allow questions during the event (use the hashtag #comicsonhandhelds). According to Dan there’s been a good bit of comics culture at SxSW as they fly the flag for the medium, which is great to hear. […]
