Arisia this Weekend

To those of you in the Boston area–I will be appearing on several panels at the sci-fi convention Arisia this weekend.  The convention runs Jan 14-17, 2011, at the Westin Waterfront Hotel.  My own panels will be on Sunday and Monday (schedule below), and for two of them I’ll be alongside my webcomicy friends Shaenon Garrity and Dirk Tiede–fun!  Many Boston Comics Roundtable folks will also be in attendance.

Unfortunately, I neglected to rent table space, but I will have some mini comics on my person to hand sell–if you see me and you’re interested, don’t hesitate to ask!  Also, I may put a few out on Shelli Paroline’s table, so have a look there as well.

Here are the panels I’ll be appearing on, with all relevant info:

869      Non-Fiction Comics: Telling Truth With Pictures Carlton

Mon 12:30 PM             Duration: 01:15

From memoir to biography, from true science to history, there are dozens of great comics out there that have little in common with the spandex-clad set. What do these stories strive to share? Are comics a good medium for non-fiction? What *can’t* you do with pictures and words?
