We always (seriously) look forward to hosting one panel at Comic-Con above the rest: the Comic Creator Connection All-Stars panel. This panel features new creators learning the ins and outs of publishing their work, then sharing what they learned with the rest of us. If you've ever published something yourself, you know something about the battles they've fought, and it's always an honor for Corey and I to share the stage with them.

Four Success Stories... in One Panel! (Audio Included)

Wondering what it takes to bring a collaborative project to life? These new creators might have a few words of advice.

Corey and I started hosting the Comic Creator Connection a few years ago. We had wanted to do something to help new creators find a creative working partner, and it turned out that the nice folks at Comic-Con wanted the same thing. So we started hosting the CCC at WonderCon, Comic-Con, and APE. (Click here if you want to know more about how it works.)

Interview from the Booth

The Toucan Learning booth at Comic-Con was located against the back wall of the exhibit hall this year, which meant that we enjoyed a TON of foot traffic as people made their way from one end of the building to the other.

Undaunted by the relentless waves of people, Henry and Angel, from the Geek Speak Show, stopped by the booth for a quick interview. Enjoy!
