It’s About Time

I’m sure I’ve mentioned this before, but this weekend I’m going up to Rockville, MD not to rockclimb as I usually do but rather to go to the convention we’ve all been waiting for for a long long time.  That’s right, Intervention!  For years I’ve heard people talk about how awesome it would be to have a webcomic convention.  About how while it’s great that so many webcomics show up at Anime conventions, or how it’s nice of Anime Cons to have adopted webcomics as much as they have, webcomics aren’t anime, they aren’t normal comics, they aren’t even traditional indie comics and they really ought to have their own venues, trade shows, exhibitions, pink flamingos, and breakfast cereals.  I’ve heard it for years.  And now the time is upon us!

For those of you who haven’t looked into it already (and really, why wouldn’t you?), Intervention is the first internet-as-a-publishing-medium convention, and it’s really shaping up to what looks to be one hell of a show.  The guest list is truly mind-blowing for a first year event, with heavy hitters such as Hawk, Mookie, Handyside, Guigar, Molly Crabapple, FRED GALLAGHER (whom I haven’t seen at a con since… like 2006), the ComicPress guys, Pete Abrams, and so many many more!  Ben MOTHERFUCKING Bova was going to be there, but apparently has fallen ill and will be unable to attend.  I hope he feels better soon.  Bova (who is a superfamous science fiction writer for those of you who have never picked up a book) is collaborating with the infamous Rob Balder on a webcomic, for those curious.  For a first year con to have names like these on it’s guest list?  I mean really, why WOULDN’T you want to go?  And of course, there’s an even better reason than to meet all these amazing people and learn their secrets in the hours and hours and hours of programming lined up…

I’ll be there.  What more could you want?


Ok I’m going to stop selling this now.  If I don’t stop, I’ll just go on and on forever.  You have no reason to not attend what looks to be an amazing good time, and hopefully the start of something even more incredible.  You should be there.  I’m going to be there.  With bells on.  See if I’m kidding.  Over the course of the weekend, I’ll be taking part in/running several panels including the aforementioned copyrights panel, my steampunk to cyberpunk history lesson, and even the rare Finder’s Keepers Q&A.  If I can figure out how to make it work (because social media is a strange and alien beast to me) I’ll also be taking questions via Twitter from 2-3 on saturday (when the panel is).  I think you just tweet your questions to GarthFT.

That’s all from me for now!

P.S.  For those of you confused about how Cardinal is disbanding that Umbra, re-read page 9 of the Prologue.

    I wish to express appreciation to the writer just for bailing me out of this particular situation. Because of looking out through the search engines and finding concepts that were not productive, I was thinking my life was gone. Existing without the presence of answers to the issues you’ve fixed by way of the blog post is a critical case, as well as the ones which might have negatively damaged my career if I hadn’t noticed your web blog. Your personal natural talent and kindness in maneuvering all the things was useful. I don’t know what I would’ve done if I hadn’t discovered such a solution like this. I can also at this time relish my future. Thanks very much for your expert and sensible help. I won’t be reluctant to refer your blog post to any individual who should get direction on this subject.
