Comic Pitch Review (Sunday)
Santa Rosa Room, Marriott Marquis San Diego Marina
If you're a writer or artist attending the Comic Creator Connection, this is your chance to practice giving your pitch before the event and get some invaluable help from a professional writer and speaker coach. So what is a pitch? A pitch is simply a way to present yourself or your project to others. It is usually a brief speech designed to persuade your listener into supporting what you're doing or what you've made. Most creators have no trouble coming up with great ideas for new comics, but they often struggle to speak clearly and concisely about those ideas to other people. Giving a good pitch is a vital skill in bringing your project to life. Fortunately, it's also a skill you can learn and improve with practice-and Pitch Review is a great place to do that. Pitch reviews will be conducted by Douglas Neff, a professional speechwriter, speaker coach, and host of the Comic Creator Connection. This is not a panel. Instead, these are three- to five-minute individual coaching sessions for as many people as is possible to accommodate in the scheduled time. Spaces are allotted on a first-come, first-served basis, and observers are welcome.

GeekEd: Civility vs. Anger

Are activities like rigging a Rotten Tomatoes review just harmless fun, or attacks on free speech and creativity?

Comics Arts Conference #14: Comics from East to West
Room 26AB
Ayanni C. H. Cooper (University of Florida) addresses discrepancies between the anime and manga versions of Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind by focusing on the manga of Nausicaä and positioning the text as climate fiction, using Miyazaki's "ecophilosophy" and his Shinto-esque leanings as a lens. Golnar Nabizadeh (University of Dundee) looks at Henry Yos**taka Kiyama's 1927 comic The Four Immigrants Manga: A Japanese Experience in San Francisco, which demonstrates the power of comics to capture and convey the complexity of migrant memories as it portrays the (mis)adventures of four Japanese Issei in San Francisco. Shirin E. Edwin (New York University Shanghai) argues that Al-Mutawa's The 99, hailed in North America and Europe as a timely response to the stereotypes of Islam, inspired in the Arab world responses ranging from fatwas to accusations of commercialism; it has in fact provincialized and not globalized Islam.

Comic Creator Connection
Santa Rosa Room, Marriott Marquis San Diego Marina
San Diego Comic-Con is proud to once again host the Comic Creator Connection, a fast-paced networking event that puts writers and artists together to help them meet potential new creative partners. Here's how it works: Writers and artists sit down across from each other at a table (artists meaning pencillers, inkers, colorists, etc.-all are welcome!). Then, in 5-minute sessions, they will talk one on one with each other about their ideas and skills. At the end of each 5-minute period, they will get up and move on to the next person. If they're interested in furthering the conversation, they can exchange contact information. If not, they politely move on. Think of it as speed-dating, but for writers and artists!
