Jeff Wells is appearing at Intervention for the 3rd time.
Wells, along with fellow Intervention guest Shaenon K. Garrity, is responsible for the webcomic Skin Horse. The comic, which began in 2007, is currently collected into three anthologies, all of which are available at Wells’ and Garrity’s table in the Artist’s Alley.
Our Intervention vlogger Jennifer Logue spoke with the always-awesome Pete Abrams about Sluggy Freelance, his panels, and why he loves coming back to Intervention every year.
Intervention is excited to welcome artist and bad video enthusiast Simon Ladd.
Ladd is probably best known as the co-host of the panel Awesomely Bad Japanese Music Videos, which has appeared at anime and other fandom conventions up and down the East Coast.
A convention veteran, Ladd is the creator of the webcomic Conventional Wisdom, which pokes fun at convention culture. His other work includes the sci-fi comedy webcomic Far Out There.
While Ladd will be taking a break from panel hosting during Intervention, he promises that he will be scouring the convention for new webcomic material.
Intervention is happy to welcome artist, panelist, and My Little Pony enthusiast Viga.
Viga’s background in art is wildly impressive. She is the creator of the recently-completed webcomic Panelburg Compendium, “best of” issues of which are available at her table in the Artists’ Alley. Currently, she is focusing her art skills on a number of offline projects, particularly print media for conventions and other events. Her work can be found in the upcoming Magic Bullet 7, an anthology of local area alternative comics, as well as in the anthology Eggshells.
Viga also hosts the web series Viga Loves Comics.
This weekend, she will be appearing on the Saturday panels Sh!t Gets Real: A Conversation With Frustrated Artists, Flirting For Geeks, and My Little Bronies: An Online Fandom Phenomenon.
The cooler weather is coming and the next thing you know it will be Halloween.
We have a guest from my old hometown of Pittsburgh at Intervention this year. Margee Kerr has extensive experience in research, co-authoring scholarly articles on the history of medicine and doctor/patient communication. She is also a nationally recognized expert on professional haunted houses.
She works year round for ScareHouse (A haunted attraction that I have reviewed over here.) consulting with the creators and owners on how to be scientifically scary and in developing, implementing, and analyzing data on customers and employees. In 2012 Margee helped to create, write, and host the interesting and a little hilarious “Scare U” web series with the ScareHouse which aired in October of 2012.
Scare U presents fast‐paced
and entertaining lessons all about fear, covering everything from the evolution of the fight or flight response to the fear of zombies and clowns, to why people love to be scared.
Margee will be presenting some of her work and doing a Q&A @ 2PM on Sat. Aug 24 in the Video Room! This is a Can’t Miss.
