Lo and Behold. Women In Comics Convention TODAY! at the main branch of the Brooklyn Public Library. I had to come up for air for a second from working hard on INFINITUM. I was asked by Supah Sistah Supreme, Regine Sawyer, Founder of Women IN Comics, to moderate an AWESOME panel titled:
Exploring the Forum & Format of Comics
Comics are going through disruptive change with the ever present nature of more advanced technologies. This panel investigates the different forums of showcase, consumption, and distribution of the comicbook medium. Panelist will also cover how these elements can be covered in an educational context within the physical and virtual learning environments.

Greetings Dieselfunkateers! The Dispatch is BACK! We are presently on the perpetual Matty’s Rocket Book Tour in California. It never really ends folks. Of course the Dieselfunk Dispatch continues. This time giving our breakdown on what makes up the Comic industry. I mean, you got your run of the mill floppies from the big majors and indie varieties, your thick ol graphic novels, and your prestigious format thingies. It’s enough to make a mug question just what is the Comic Book Industry? For the artists it means one thing, but for the publisher it means something altogether. Add in the digital disruption with distribution it makes for quite a tale. The Dieselfunk Dispatch goes in relatively deep, but simple enough for the regular reader to get an idea of how it goes down.
