    I loved doing my Webcomics 101 panel last year, and I'd love to do another panel for the upcoming con! I'm actually giving that same talk at AZ Fur Con today, so I think it's time to retire my outline/slide show and come up with something new. I'm thinking I should do something more specific than just webcomics in general, since that's such a broad topic.

    However... I'm drawing a blank. I don't know what I should talk about! I'm a blabbermouth so I don't think I'll have any trouble filling time if I do get a slot, but I'm not sure what to focus on and propose. Do you happen to have any suggestions?

      Perhaps do a Webcomics 102 panel? Talk about some of the more specific details, stuff like advertising, story composing and control, character development, dealing with skill leveling up over time leading to the comic looking different as time goes on, moving to print, selling merch, etc?

        Done! I ended up going with a panel about what it's like to maintain a webcomic and the journey to becoming a professional. I had to keep the panel description a bit vague to fit the word limit, but I'm planning on covering the stuff you mentioned. :3 Thanks for the suggestions!
