11:00 A.M. Comics by the People: Crowd-funding, Kickstarter, and the
Future of Fan-supported Art.

Self-publishing in indie comics has a strong tradition and now
Kickstarter has been called the #2 comics publisher in the US. What is
the future of comics publishing? What are the benefits and challenges
of directly fan-funded models? Molly Crabapple (Week in Hell), Spike
Trotman (Poorcraft) and Jamie Tanner (The Black Well) discuss what
works, what hasn’t and what’s to come. Moderated by Meaghan O’Connell,
Kickstarter. Featuring screen projection.

Saint Francis Screening Room (180 Remsen Street)
3:00 P.M. The Sex Panel: Taboo in Pictures.

Gilbert Hernandez (Love and Rockets), Leela Corman (Unterzakhn), Molly
Crabapple (Devil in the Details) and Bob Fingerman (From the Ashes)
talk about sex and taboo in comics. What inspires and informs their
work and drives their characters (and readers)? From obscenity to art,
and the delicious in-between. Featuring screen projection, with viewer
discretion advised! Moderated by Heidi MacDonald.

Saint Francis Auditorium (180 Remsen Street)
