A panel of comic experts will discuss the state of the comic industry today before addressing the rise of independent comics in the mid- to late-'80s. They’ll focus specifically on The Rocketeer. While the character first appeared in 1982, it pays homage to the Saturday matinee serial heroes and art deco style of the '30s, '40s, and '50s. The 1991 movie based on the comic book will be shown.
Bryan Young, editor-in-chief of Big Shiny Robot! (geek news and reviews blog), will moderate the panel discussion. The members of the panel are:
· David Landa, Dr. Volt's Comics
· Jeff Vice, Geek Show Podcast
· Bryan Young, City Weekly / Big Shiny Robot!
· Greg Gage, Black Cat Comics
Event sponsored by Big Shiny Robot!
