FOR IMMEDIATE DISTRIBUTION
PUNXSUTAWNEY, PA — Webcomics creators, readers and fans are invited to an
online meetup this weekend. WEBReeF stands for “WEBcomics, Readers and
Fans” and aims to behave much like a “virtual comic convention.”
The event offers 100% free registration and allows attendees the ability to
attend virtual panels, Q&A sessions and drawing demonstrations via a variety
of video conferencing and social media tools. An “artists alley” is
available on the site’s forums, where small press artists are encouraged to
post links to their portfolios and merchandise.
Comic book and webcomics creators are encouraged to attend, but the event is
open to the public with the hope of bringing in readers and casual fans as
well. This is the first such meetup and another is planned for later this
The event officially kicks off Friday, February 3, 2012 at 12 Noon EST and
ends at the stroke of midnight on Monday, February 6, 2012. If you are
interested in hosting a panel of your own, space is still available. Please
use the provided contact form on the ‘Events Schedule’ page.
This WEBReeF event is sponsored by Clownfish Media and currently hosted by
the Shadowbinders webcomic (http://www.shadowbinders.com)
