It is my pleasure to bring you great tidings from the world of Webcomics, especially if you are in the Central Texas region. This weekend Dragon’s Lair Austin is gathering some of the greatest minds in webcomic for you to meet, greet and maybe grab a drink with. We have reached out to Robbie LaBanca, the coordinator of Webcomic Rampage, to tell us a little bit more about this awesome show.
All-Comic: Robbie WEBCOMIC RAMPAGE has an amazing line up. Who is in charge of putting this awesome show together?
Robbie LaBanca: I am in charge of contacting all the folks and inviting them to attend the show.
AC: How long has Dragon Lair been holding this event?
RLB: This is our 5th Annual Webcomic Rampage.
AC: How did you get so many great creators to show up?
RLB: We benefit from great word of mouth between the creators. As we have been doing this for 5 years now, as we have different creators they all talk about the event with each other. The webcomic community is very close knit and word spreads fast about a good event that creators can attend. Beyond that, it is as simple as inviting the creators and relying on our previous successful events to convince them to come.
AC: How has the turn out for this show been in the past years?
RLB: We always have an amazing turnout of several hundred people over the course of the weekend. In many ways it is like a mini-convention.
AC: Where can people buy tickets/sign up for this event?
RLB: The event itself is free but there are sign-ups for Q&A panels because they have limited seating. People can sign up for the Q&A session by calling the store (512-454-2399) or coming by in person.
AC: How can fans get more information about Webcomic Rampage?
RLB: More in formation can be found on our website Dlair.net.
AC: Thanks for your time Robbie!
