I'm back from Heroes and it was AWESOME! Thanks to Shelton, Dustin, and all the great folks who worked hard to make sure the show ran smoothly. Thanks to everyone who stopped by the table or came to a panel. And thanks to all the cartoonists I got to meet and catch up with. I had a grand time.

I'll also be doing a few panels, here are the details on those:
VOCATIONAL COMICS: Comics As Career
Tom Spurgeon of The Comics Reporter meets with some of the brightest stars in the comic firmament to discuss how they learned to handle the age-old question: what do you do when comics becomes your livelihood? Joining Tom will be Jill Thompson (Scary Godmother), Meredith Gran (Octopus Pie), Jim Rugg (Afrodisiac), Ed Piskor (Wizzywig) and Raina Telgemeier (Smile).
CRAFT AND PROCESS IN COMICS
With the increasing prevalence of technology, there are more ways to approach making comics than ever before, from good old fashion inks and brushes all the way to 100% digital comics. Join Jim Rugg (Afrodisiac), Roger Langridge (Muppet Show), and Drew Weing (Set To Sea) as they discuss their varying approaches to pen and ink and pixels, moderated by HeroesCon Creative Director (and cartoonist) Dustin Harbin.
IN CONVERSATION | Sammy Harkham & Jim Rugg
Sammy Harkham (Kramer's Ergot, Crickets) and Jim Rugg (Afrodisiac, The Plain Janes) are the two of the most innovative cartoonists working today. The Comics Reporter's Tom Spurgeon sits down with them to discuss their processes, influences, approaches to cartooning and more in what's sure to be a fascinating panel discussion.
