Deconstructing Comics #499: Organizing Comics Events

Comics EventsWhat goes into planning a comics event? How can organizers respond to complaints from fans and cosplayers about sexual harassment and long lines? This week we ask Emerald City Comicon founder Jim Demonakos, now Global Director of Comic Talent at ReedPOP, about these issues, as well as how to maximize profits when tabling at a con, why comics events have multiplied, and what the future holds for comics conventions.

Also, Adam Pasion of Big Ugly Robot Press gives us the scoop on Big Ugly Robot and Black Hook Press‘s new event coming to Tokyo this July, Comic Art Tokyo!

Deconstructing Comics #277: “Daytripper” & Mike Maihack (“Cleopatra in Space”) interview

A double-header episode this week!

First, Tim and Brandon discuss Fabio Moon and Gabriel Ba‘s Daytripper. No, it’s not a time travel story (is it a story at all?); it’s a reflection on life and death. Is it fantastic, or trite? Depends on your point of view…

Then, Tim talks to Mike Maihack, the talented creator behind Cleopatra in Space, about motion lines, Web comics as a business, and more.
