Will Dennis and I talk about the multiple issues facing the rest of the 2020 convention season and how it's a hit, not only to the bank accounts of creators and publishers but also to the slow burn of creativity that happens at cons, which leads to new titles.

Will Dennis and I recorded this episode on Friday, 3/27/20. In the week since then, my pie-in-the-sky attitude has taken a severe beating. However, as we talked, Will does present some compelling ideas for how comics could regroup and help out retailers after we get through this pandemic.
