#9 – Oni Press Comicstravaganza featuring Table Read of “The Life After #2”
Talk about “burying the lead”. This table read wasn’t in the title of this panel (thankfully it WAS in the description of the panel) but it was the highlight of the panel for me. I’ve actually never been to a panel where the creators actually read through a comic they wrote/drew (in this case it was issue #2 that won’t be released for another couple of weeks. A bonus for me since I loved issue #1 (reviewed as 5/5 on ComicSpectrum by Adam Alamo) and getting the zany continuing adventures in the afterlife with 100% more Ernest Hemingway than most other comics.
I’d love to see more creators do this, it was great fun to hear writer Joshua Hale Fialkov and artist Gabo (aka Gabriel Bautista) read their comic while the pages themselves were projected up on the big screen so the audience could follow along.
Definitely a highlight of the convention for me!
