Fantagraphics at VikingCon 2013

Our own Gary Groth and Mike Catron will be pillaging and plundering at VikingCon 2013 in Bellingham, WA, on Saturday, May 11th

VikingCon describe themselves as, "a cultural convention that serves as a place for individuals involved in the comic world across all levels of experience to come together and engage in meaningful conversations and explorations." And with that in mind, go engage in meaningful conversations with Gary and Mike in the following panels!

11:00 - 12:00 PM // The Age of Modern Comic: The Modern Age of Comics is a period in the history of American comic-books that began in the mid-1980s around the time of the publication of Watchmen, and has gone on to see the revival of the comics industry in the twenty-first century. This panel is a round-table discussion about the Modern Age, focusing on the multimedia popularity of comic books and addressing key issues about the changing nature of comics today. (Room VU 565A)

1:45 - 2:45 PM // Getting Into the Industry: Come meet industry professionals from many different aspects of the comic world, and learn what it takes to get in the business. Whether you’re an aspiring writer, artist, publisher/editor, or simply interested in how to get a career in the film, gaming, comic and graphic novel-inspired industry, this panel is a unique opportunity to ask and learn from people who have been in your shoes. (Room VU 565A)

VikingCon 2013 will be held in the Viking Union building at Western Washington University [ 516 High Street, Bellingham ].  Click here for driving and parking instructions. Parking is free of charge.
