ECCC is one of our absolute favorite conventions (in one of our favorite cities). It’s a jam-packed 4-day show full of amazing programming, guests, and one of the best literary/author sections of any comic convention.
Adron will be moderating two panels at the show, including the fan favorite “10 Points to Slytherin”, and our brand new discussion, “Story Unlimited”. Check out all the info about the panels and our fantastic guest speakers below!
Story Unlimited: Using Non-Traditional Methods & Media to Tell YOUR Story
Thursday, March 14th | 2:45pm—3:45pm | Room WSCC 603
Do you have a story to tell, but struggle writing that traditional novel, comic, or screenplay? Modern media presents you with extraordinary new options to tell your tale and win an audience. Whether it’s a podcast, video series, webcomic, RPG, chat & text story, indie game, serialized mobile fiction, mystery subscription, or something completely new, your potential fans are waiting! And why limit yourself to just one platform? Fictitious podcast host Adron Buske talks with a panel of creators and industry professionals about the evolving world of multimedia entertainment – and how you can break in with your own stories.
10 Points to Slytherin: Why Good Fans Love Evil Characters
Friday, March 15th | 1:45pm—2:45pm | Room TCC L3-R4
Get in touch with your Dark Side! Forget the boring heroes – fandom loves its villains. Loki, Harley Quinn, Darth Vader – with their fascinating backstories, dangerous aesthetics, and devil-may-care attitudes, it’s easy to see why many fans self-identify with the bad guys. But what does it say when you proudly claim allegiance to Slytherin House, the 501st, or Hydra? This panel – moderated by Fictitious podcast host Adron Buske – will explore fan fascination with fictional antagonists.
