Our Cincy Comic Con coverage begins with 2 great panels loaded with candid conversation from creators who've struggled in the creator owned before hitting their goals. Some would say they're still struggling today after being in the biz for 30 years.
First up The Fear Agent 10th anniversary panel with Rick Remender (Uncanny Avengers Captain America)  Tony Moore (The Walking Dead Punisher Ghost Rider) and Mike Hawthorne (Deadpool The Un-Men). Rick and Tony created the Fear Agent Heath Huston, space cowboy, interplanetary war vet, and killer of icky space creatures . The series was an homage to the 50's EC comics style of Sci-Fi, and the guys talk about the book's struggle over 32 issues and how it inspired many of their works that followed.

More Creator owned advice from this excellent panel featuring Evan Dorkin (Milk & Cheese, DC Comics World's Funniest) Zine editor publisher Sarah Dyer (Action Girl) Kickstarter Master Ryan Browne (God Hates Astronauts- Blast Furnace) and amazing illustrator Jeremy Bastion (Arcadia's Cursed Pirate Girl) . This information they share is extremely helpful to any aspiring creators. It's one of the best panels I've had the pleasure of moderating.
