ICv2 Announces Special Conference on the Future of Comics
Conference Held in Conjunction With San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC)
The ICv2 Comics, Media, and Digital Conference, held in conjunction with SDCC, will bring together thought leaders from the comics, media, and digital worlds to discuss how the two most powerful trends in comics are shaping the future. Speakers and panelists at the Conference will look at the state of comics now; how comics are being used in other media; how digital comics are interacting with the transmedia uses of comic properties; and a panel discussion on "Comics at Comic-Con 2013," in which digital, retailing, distribution, and creator panelists will look ahead two years to answer key questions about the future of comics.
The ICv2 Comics, Media, and Digital Conference is sponsored by Publisher's Weekly, Heidi MacDonald's The Beat, and Media and Entertainment Technologies.
The Conference will be held at the Marriott next to the San Diego Convention Center on Wednesday afternoon, July 20th.
