So the Mix started today at CCAD in Columbus: a series of workshops & panel discussions about comics. Technically it began last night with a panel discussion on Maus. As of now it appears all the workshops are filled up. Yay. There is a registration charge (cover) of $50 for all three days (except for the Chris Ware talk which is free).
- Friday I’ll be on the Indie Comics Spotlight panel. The panel runs from 4:15 – 5:30pm at the Canzani Center.
- Saturday, I’ll be participating in the Authoring Comics panel. That runs from 12:45 – 2:15pm. Also in the Canzani Center.
The Chris Ware keynote speech begins at 7pm Friday with a reception to follow. Officially his new book drops this week, and of course it will be at the Mix pop-up shop. I’ll have some merch there as well.
Robert Loss, the Mix organizer & english professor at the school, runs a comics blog. The Comics Reporter ran an interview with him today. Sounds like the school is up for making this an annual event which is really cool.
See you there.
