Some people call them Renaissance creators, others call them multi-hyphenates, but here in comics we just call them cartoonists: people who write, draw, and color their own work - heck, some of them even letter, design, and publish it as well. These DIY warriors hold a special place in comics, and especially in the world of YA comics. At Emerald City Comic Con 2022, cartoonists Hope Larson and Liana Kangas gathered together to talk about doing it all - and giving themselves that much deserved pat on the back.

Popverse is filming this and many other panels at ECCC this year, and making them one of two ways - by becoming a Popverse member at the 'Fan' level (or higher), or by buying a ECCC digital ticket. The ECCC digital ticket gives you access to live video panels streamed at ECCC from the Main Stage, VOD panels from three other stages, and access to all the great content from Popverse for 30 days. The Popverse membership does that for the entire year, and would include live video panels from the upcoming New York Comic Con, MCM London Comic Con in October, and (yes) next year's Emerald City Comic Con and C2E2.
