Insights for Independent Creators was a panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2013. It was hosted by the man in this drawing, comics and screenwriter Brandon Easton. The panel included Black indie comics creators Dale Wilson, Todd Harris, Dani Dixon, Larry Welch, Andre Owens, and Robert Roach. DeWayne Copeland was the moderator. As host, Easton was witty, candid, and a little sarcastic; but he was also inspiring. Easton and his panelists emphasized the potential of new digital production technologies to diversify the range of stories being told in all forms of media. The creator of the popular independent comic Shadowlaw, Easton is the embodiment of this trend.
