Children's Graphic Novel Day Roundtable Summary (Part 4)

On online comics, conventions and communities:

The Flight anthology owed much of its early success to the online buzz generated before the release of the first volume. Every panelist agreed conventions played a critical role in bringing your art to the public and to publishing pros. Moreover, Kazu Kibuishi likened the group of creators behind tables at conventions as a village, and for him, attending conventions such as the San Diego Comic Con gave him the chance to meet and socialize with friends and peers in that village.
