YPG Bay Area “Geeks Out” Over Comics

Cincopa video hosting solution for your website. Another great product from Cincopa Send Files.


A big thank you the YPG Bay Area members who were able to join us for the Comics & “Geek” Culture in Publishing Panel at Mission Comics on Thursday, September 4th from 6:30-7:30pm, despite the huge fire in the area only a few hours earlier (​luckily ​no books were harmed).


We couldn’t have asked for a more knowledgeable group of panelists, including Ron Richards of Image Comics, Chris Prince of Insight Editions, Jennifer Joseph of Manic D Press, and Jack Bauer of Berkeley Public Library. Thank you all for participating. We ​learned what it takes to make it as a comic book artist, author, editor, or publisher in this day and age, ​and ​how ​discover and promote your next project​—​by ​attending Comic-Cons and book shows​, tuning in to current conversations, and creating relationships with the incredibly supportive comic community out there, online and off.


A HUGE thank you to Mission Comics & Art for hosting. We’re lucky to have such a great comic shop and resource here in San Francisco.

Don’t forget: it’s Banned Books Week next week (Sept. 21-27) and this year will emphasize comics and graphic novels. Read more about banned and challenged comics on CBLDF.org.
