Comic Cast Live Panel: Getting started in small press & web comics


So you want to get started in making your own small press comic books and webcomics? In our first live panel show, we get the skinny from comic writer/artists Philip Barrett (Matter, Lint, Blackshapes, Gazebo), Hilary Lawlor (Superhilbo) and Paddy Brown (The Cattle Raid of Cooley) on everything from page layout, lettering, scanning and editing as well as getting your comics into the hands of punters and promoting them. With audience contributions from fellow Irish comics creators Declan Shalvey, Tommie Kelly, Gar Shanley & Maeve Clancy. The Comic Cast was recorded in front of a live studio audience as part of the Irish 24 Hour Comics Day.
