Ever wonder why the San Diego Comic-Con logo never changes? We don’t know, but maybe it’s because the eye… is always looking to the future!
We’ll be at San Diego Comic-Con – just like every year! Come find us this year in booth 5353 – in the back behind Artist’s Alley! Want to spend even more time with us?! On July 14 at 7pm in Room 4 at the Convention Center, we’re taking part in a panel titled The Future of Graphic Novels – A look at the not-so-distant future of interactive graphic storytelling.
Our own Steve Yatson (Senior Director of Productivity and Graphics) along with Moderator Harry McCracken (editor at large for Time’s Techland and founder of Technologizer), and a host of artists like Doug TenNapel (creator of Earthworm Jim) will be discussing what’s next in the evolution of comics, the technology behind it, and the implications for the industry. Check out the full SDCC show schedule here.
