Anina Bennett, co-creator of Heartbreakers and Boilerplate, will moderate a panel discussion “How to Break Into Comics as a Writer” Writers on the panel discussion include Kurt Busiek (Astro City), Dan Berman (God Complex), Adam Gallardo (Gear School), Brandon Jerwa (Battlestar Galactica) and Jamie S. Rich (Spellcheckers).
