Reasons Six through Nine
Reasons 6, 7, 8 and 9 to come to Penguicon were tricky. I have a great group of people coming to speak on my webcomic panels, and didn’t want to offend any of them by putting one before the other. They are all spending a great deal of money to come to the con and entertain the attendees, and I want them all to know that I appreciate their efforts! So, Reasons 6-8 are our three webcomic nifties and reason 9 are the rest of our webcomic panelists. I shall now list them all in no particular order:
- Megan Rose Gedris – creator of I Was Kidnapped by Lesbian Pirates from Outer Space, Yu + Me and owner of Roslarian Publishing
- Jason Dustan – creator and author of Ardra
- Mark Savary – creator of Autumn Lake and co-host of the Webcomic Beacon
- Trevor Adams – Artist of Ardra
- Adam Smithee – creator of The Apple of Discord
- Tanya Higgins – creator of Betapwned and co-host of the Webcomic Beacon
- Michael Dellheim – creator of Prepare to Die and Wagon Webcomic Battle
- Rob Balder – creator of Partially Clips and one of the forces behind the Fump
- Catherynne M Valente – author and co-writer of My Name is Might Have Been
- The Hamtramack Idea Men – Comic creators and… well… idea men.
I’m also still trying to get Fes (P.S.I., Ardra and the Webcomic Beacon) and the folks behind Geeks Next Door to come to the con, so if you know them (or if you don’t), swing by their sites and convince them to add Penguicon to their schedule!
