About This Convention
The Free State Comicon is an “old-fashioned” comic book convention, primarily focused on comic books, those who write, draw, and otherwise create comic books. The show is interested in fostering the many newer artists and writers who self-produce, self-publish, or create webcomics, and of course the rich body of talent that is the Kansas City comic book creator community. This will be the 8th year for this annual convention, which takes place in Lawrence, Kansas.

Oni Press on Panels!

THUR

12:00-1:00 Spotlight on Bryan Lee O’Malley- Comic-Con special guest Bryan Lee O’Malley (winner of the Doug Wright, Joe Shuster, and Harvey Awards) talks with legendary comics scholar Scott McCloud (Understanding Comics, Zot!) about Bryan’s groundbreaking slice-of-life graphic novel series Scott Pilgrim. From its genesis to the production of the upcoming film version, O’Malley speaks frankly about where Scott Pilgrim came from and where the series is going from here. With a fan Q&A to close the discussion, this is the must attend event of Comic-Con 2009! Room 5AB

3:00-4:00 Oni Press: Panelmonium 2009- Get up close and personal with trend setting indie comic powerhouse Oni Press. Join in the Q&A with your favorite Oni creators, including Ross Campbell (Wet Moon), Jamie S.

Stars and producers will share personal stories and answer questions about the show’s genesis, episodic development, and production process. Video presentations created exclusively for Comic-Con will feature never-before-seen outtakes, a Season 4 exclusive preview, and a special video-diary segment that will take panel attendees inside the daily production process via the perspective of a staff writer, the Vancouver production team, and series star James Roday as he prepares to shoot a scene for the upcoming season.
