THE INDIE COMICS PANEL ROOM, as it was titled in the panel schedule, was the final panel I attended at MegaCon 2015. It occurred in Room 205BC from 1:20 – 2:10 pm. Panel Moderator Terry Cronin led this interactive panel in a discussion of the challenges of becoming an independent comic book creator, finding reliable talent to work with, handling portfolio critiques from established professionals, and treating your comic book career in a professional and businesslike manner. The panelists touched on these topics and more through sharing stories from their own careers.

The FUTURE BEAR’S MISSION BOOK PANEL was the third panel I attended at MegaCon 2015 on Friday, April 10, 2015. It took place in Room 205BC from 4:00 – 5:00 p. m. Prof. Rachel Simmons created Future Bear, and Prof. Julian Chambliss wrote the Future Bear’s comic book story. Cassandra Hill created Future Bear’s rocket pack, Alison Eitner wore the Future Bear costume, assisted by Meredith Connelly. Rachel and Julian are professors at Rollins College who discuss using Future Bear in an educational environment to teach students about  environmental awareness and climate change.

At the end of the episode I read an e-mail about the SATURDAY MORNING CARTOONS PANEL! Originally I had planned to

attend the SELF PUB COMICS panel which began ten minutes earlier, but I happened to meet Julian after the 3 BOYS PRODUCTIONS PANEL. We began to talk and I lost track of time. So instead of going to the SELF PUB COMICS panel after it started, I decided to attend this panel instead, and was glad I did. It was interesting to see how comic books can be used in education.
