ozoneocean had big plans for his trip to San Diego Comic Con to promote his comic, which basically went completely wrong in almost every way possible. He tells his story and what he did to try and recover. What could go wrong for you and what would you do?
Topics and Show Notes
The best way to recover from Plan A going wrong is to have a Plan B... but it's hard to predict what might mess up. We discuss some common ways that convention and webcomic plans go awry and some things which could be done to mitigate the pain. With conventions it's all the problems oz had: costs, merchandise and promo material not arriving, etc... and with webcomics you get things like losing collaborators, hosting going down, and so on. There's some questions you might ask yourself, and a good attitude never hurts!

This week skool and oz review some common debates in webcomics, the ones there are no right answers for, and go over some of the pros and cons of each side. Our points may be old-hat to some, but everyone's got an opinion on these and they're worth thinking about!

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!
