Because comic books are a visual medium, the comic book artist generally has an advantage as an unpublished talent. The old days of sending in unsolicited pitches to big comic book companies in the hopes of getting hired are dead and gone. If you are an unpublished writer with dreams of making it in the comic book industry and you don’t know how or where to begin, this is the panel for you. Join writer Brandon M. Easton (Dreamwave’s ARKANIUM, Arcana Studios’ SHADOWLAW) as he gives you the truth on how to break in. This panel is set up for BEGINNER LEVEL writers only and attendees should be prepared to take detailed notes as Brandon will give them a real world plan to achieve their dreams
