And this convention seems to be that but populated by people who one can expect to say things that are funny and insigthful because they have to be those two things on a professional level, even if it isn't as 2000AD creators.

Its this exactly. I do wonder if there is an element if subconsious jealousy amongst these that naysay the range of commentators present. i.e. "Well if they're just a fan why aren't I allowed to do it. Who are they to be ble to express their views over and above me, me, I, I.".



TBF rebellion missed a trick by not asking you to chair a ‘which panel was the greatest Panel, Panel’

Oh it will happen, it will happen...

Apparently, the panels will later go up on YouTube.
That's one advantage that a virtual convention has over a real one. Back in ye olden days, if two panels you wanted to see at UKCAC or wherever were on at the same time, then you were out of luck.

Anyone playing along this morning. I'm at a swimming gala with the girl child but will be watching as much as possible, including the kick off in a couple of minutes.

For what it's worth, I happen to know one of the less famous names on the guest list (Kids author Louie Stowell) and can attest that she's as big a 2000Ad fan as any of them (although she's actually a bigger Oink! fan at heart :) ). I lok forward to hearing her weigh in on whatever discussion she's part of!


Oink! has already been mentioned!

Sheridan and I are enjoying the discussions so far. I love how varied the conversations have been.

I loved Stella Creasy reeling off her comics history. Take that, knee-jerk haters!

Agreed -- I don't think I've ever heard of her before, but she comes across really well. It was a great panel -- very entertaining!

Yep I'll echo all of that. Didn't know her but she was great on that panel, as was Ian Dunt. Fav one so far. Loving this and looking forward to catching up with the fun I've missed, While I miss a physical convention his is a great way to be able to see everything you want at your own pass...

...oh and I'm not spending more money than is sensible... though I will go buy a t-shirt ...

Enjoying watching that panel now.

The modern idea (quite prolific in certain quarters) that all politicians are simply beneath our contempt, despite their personality or their affiliation - the idea that they're less than human (you know - the idea that they couldn't be both a politician and someone who likes comics at the same time) is so very narrow minded and dangerous - just so ignorant. Of course, at the extreme it leads to violence against them - which is just chaos.

Quite how we get "fans" who can't handle politics being linked to the comic, but who still hark back to a mythic golden era don't seem to realize that the comic's always been anti-authoritarian.

Relentlessly bullying the comic's creators, the comic's editorial staff, the comic's current output and any fans who don't live up to some ill-defined mythic ideals, and not being able to accept any sort of counter is authoritarian in its nature.

The nature of the online system is that people with Farcebook-shaped megaphones get to create and maintain a toxic narrative that skews away from most people's experience. In response to an argument like mine they'll say "oh, so we're not allowed to criticize anything?" - but that's not what I've actually said. You could use constructive criticism, and "it's shit without Wagner" just won't cut it.

Caught the politics one, the next Gen one, Mills one and was interrupted in the Wagner one due to dinner (try and catch this on the YouTube later). For the most part I enjoyed the discussions and took bits from all and hope to catch up on the others I’ve missed.

I’d be interested in what their total “views” end up being and what they would consider a success.   

Hopefully catch a couple “live” tomorrow but it is supposed to be another nice day up here in Cal-Hab
Citizens are Perps who haven’t been caught ... yet!

Probably goes without saying, but the Wagner interview is really great and essential listening.
