1:00 Panel Room: Minicomix History: The 1980s.
Hosted by Bruce Chrislip with Tim Corrigan, Matt Feazell and Michael Neno.
The 1980s was the decade that saw Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird go from obscure minicomix artists to multimillionaire creators of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Two of our panelists published major review zines of that era and we will be covering such phenomena as: Matt Feazell & stick figure comix, Steve Willis and Morty the Dog, Tim Corrigan and his (for real) Small Press Comics Explosion, the rise of Starhead Comix, Michael Neno's early small press creations, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle influence, Michael Roden & the Cincinnati minicomix scene, the City Limits Gazette and the Seattle minicomix/ alternative comix scene. Panel moderator Bruce Chrislip promises to shamelessly name-drop most of the prominent cartoonists he met during the era. Find out what Peter Bagge, Robert Crumb, Gary Larson,Harvey Pekar and others are really like.
