Just in time for convention season, this episode is about the webcomic artists' perspective on cons. We've got two seasoned vets (and a contribution from ShadowsMyst) talking about why someone should set up shop, and how to prepare!
Topics and Show Notes
NOTE: This episode features one or two instances of "saucy" language. Additionally, due to a hiccup in the recording process, we had to rely on a backup recording of the Skype conversation for the published version. Apologies for the audio quality.

Part 1 of another extra-long podcast, all about advertising and external promotion. Get noticed!
Feb 8, 2011
Special virtual-guest VegaX (who increases the podcast's accent diversity) of the Comic Review forum joins skool and oz to talk about the topic of comic reviews and critiques, both giving and receiving.

Oz and skool discuss their first disagreement on a feature, cementing skool's image as "the evil one". They then get into a lengthy discussion about the loosely related topics of filler, fan art, and artist/writer's block.

skool and oz fall back into habit with a rough beginning, lots of feature discussion, and talking too long about the weekly subject with no clear outcome. But it's still good!
