Thanks to Wow Cool for the heads up.
The Spring 2023 Comics & Picture-story Symposium strikes me as a particularly good one so far. It’s got an interesting spread and every speaker is worth a listen.
Soooo I thought it would be a good idea to run a list and links to everything that’s gone on so far and what’s to come.
For some reason, these videos are a little buggy on the YouTube side of things. Some of them refuse to embed. Some give intermittent age warnings. Others start midway through the interview and need to be rewound. (Or maybe it’s just me?)
Anyway, here are the links to the videos.
There are a lot of good speakers still lined up. You can wait for the interviews/talks to go up on YouTube or you can check the schedule and register to watch live on Zoom. Personally, I can’t wait to hear what Ron Regé, Jr. has to say.
Also, Ben Katchor apparently pays for the running costs of the symposium out of his own pocket (while the Will & Ann Eisner Family Foundation pays speaker fees.) So, if you’re feeling supportive, maybe it would be a good time to fill that hole in your Katchor collection.
