And another very nice report on the Comics & Medicine Conference, this one by Publishers Weekly. It sounds like writer Erich Beasley was in attendance, although I didn't meet him (I didn't meet the guy from the Times, either; my secret plan to avoid all interviews and publicity is working!). The article concludes:
"While the panels and guests at the Comics and Medicine Conference were interesting and the lectures were all well executed the conference remains one of the smallest around, with only about 100 attendees. Nevertheless, if the organizers continue securing such a talented and diverse group of speakers there is no doubt that this conference will only get bigger and better as time goes on. The juxtaposition of the seriousness of healthcare and the lightheartedness of comics blends beautifully, making for a very interesting and enjoyable comic conference experience."
Nice. Also, if you read the article, check out the photo credit. That makes me happy.
