WINC: Exploring the Forum & Format of Comics

Greetings Dieselfunkateers! 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.

Dieselfunk Dispatch Comics Distribution

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.

HACK The DIESEL

HACK The DIESEL

Greetings Dieselfunkateers!  I hope your holiday season is off to a bang.  Work is still ongoing throughout the holidays in the lab.  There’s been some quite fascinating discussion online regarding the state of black comics and how best to market and sell them.  All very helpful and useful ideas.  In the discussion, it occurred to me that all cartoonists of color could in theory hack the marketing of the upcoming Schomburg Black Comic Book Day and Black Panther Movie to spread awareness about how individual works and the body of work in general.  Thusly, I wanted take a moment to formally send out a notice for the following hashtag phrase:

#blackpantherblackcomix Checkout www.yoururl.com @SchomburgCenter #Blackcomicbookday#ipfreeforall Won’thurt2tryit & other books:-) “ 

So for me this post would go:

Feel FREE to use it to your hearts content.  Back to it.
