Small press comic publishers: What makes the difference between an item that will get news coverage, previews, and interviews, and what doesn't? A lot of publishers have no idea what to submit to the press, how to submit it, and why they are being overlooked for coverage. Comics journalist Rik Offenberger (First Comics News, Archie Comics) moderates this panel on just what it takes to get coverage, with the comic journalists themselves telling you what they are looking for. Panelists include Alan Kistler (Comic Mix, Newsarama), Chris Thompson (First Comics News), Bryan Young (Huffington Post, Big Shiny Robot), Dan Manser (Diamond), Holly Golightly (BroadSword Comics), Rich Johnston (Bleeding Cool), J. C. Vaughn (The Scoop), Josh Waldrop (M1W Entertainment), Matt Moore (Associated Press), and Heidi MacDonald (The Beat). Find out what it takes to self-promote and make a significant impact on your ability to sell your comic project.
