Talking about the role of fandom on the next CAG!

Whatever your stance on cosplay, one can't deny that it's an active arena in fan participation with media. Is it simply a distracting branch that interferes with the "pure" transactions between fans and creators? Or is it a means for fans to enrich their participation with the creations themselves? When fandoms form around a creation, how should a creator respond?

On the next Comics Are Great! show I'll be joined by Rachel Ashley-Lovelace for a discussion on the culture of fandoms and cosplay and how they might coexist with the creative forces that inform them.

You can participate in the discussion via the G+ Hangout event page.

Recorded live at the Ann Arbor District Library: http://comics.aadl.org
