Indiana Comic Con – Day 1

Art from “Building Your Collection,” including original 1971 Dr. Strange blacklight poster.

Today’s Panels:
Protecting your Ideas-Presentation by the Patent+ Trademark Office. Also covered copyright.
Building Your Collection-Interesting to hear hobby collectors come up with some of the same collection-development practices from an amateur perspective without formal training. Presenter couldn’t speak to classification schemes, though. | thought I might gain some insight that might apply to comics & fan merchandise as special collections. But it really was focused on hobbyists, which really was to be expected.
Race & Gender in Video Games-Insightful overview of presenter’s research on representation in video game trailers.
Also a magic show & Freestyle D&D.
