  1. This is pure awesome – ness!I’ll be there
    I would like to have further conversations about the growing mobile APP community towards electronic ebook(comics) – and coming towards the implications of reproducing Batman, for example, in 010101’s instead of Ink and colour. Is it the same experience to read digital copy on a iPad as to reading the real reproduction – or is it more cost effective to initiative sustainability by decreasing printing and increasing virtual sharing? etc etc You know will it change how we Identify with our intense connection with the tangible richness of the paper medium versus the virtual / digital medium.
    anyway interesting to see how the comics industry transitions to the mobile platform – which is inevitable

    • You ought to get Tim wound-up on that topic, Erik. He has lots of really interesting thoughts on virtual comics. Look forward to seeing you there!
