Keenspot 2014: Giant-Size Panel of Pure Weirdness
YouTube superstar Markiplier of the markiplierGAME channel hosts this totally weird 14th annual Comic-Con panel for pioneering webcomics publisher Keenspot, again featuring their transmedia partner Red Giant Entertainment! Keenspot fans are accustomed to comics being free to read online, but Red Giant is about to "set free" the world of printed comic books! On Free Comic Book Day 2014, Red Giant previewed their revolutionary ad-supported, free-to-consumer comic book line Giant-Size Comics with a bundled four-pack of #0 issue flipbooks to incredible response (within hours, the sought-after free bundle was paradoxically being purchased on eBay for as much as twenty bucks!). Along with some of Keenspot's top webcomics creators on the dais to answer audience questions, many of the minds behind the Giant-Size line will be here to discuss and reveal all-new details on its exciting future as a free 72-page weekly event launching in stores later this year. Creators scheduled to appear on this panel include Benny Powell (Wayward Sons), David Campiti (Pandora's Blogs), Thomas Fischbach (Twokinds), D. J. Coffman and Ally Monroe (The God Child), Mort Castle (Darchon), David Lawrence (Magika), R. C. Monroe (Out There), and Giant-Size story editor Brian Augustyn. All attendees will receive the Giant-Size #0 four-pack bundle!
