Bill Flanagan, organizer of the Lost in Translation panel at the upcoming San Diego Comic-Con, gives a wonderfully thorough behind-the-scenes account of how the panel is assembled over at his blog at The Translation Dojo. (Looking back, the remark that prompted the explanation could be said to fall into the “needlessly snarky” category. Try and contain your shock.)
Speaking of Nerd Vegas, I’m working on a Flipped column that tries to highlight all of the manga action at this year’s con. I used SDCC’s exhibitor list as a starting point for contacts, but if your company isn’t listed or if you’re taking part in a panel or setting up shop in artists’ alley, drop me a line at DavidPWelsh at yahoo dot com by Friday, July 14, and I’ll do my best to make sure you’re included.
