How to Make a World Class Virtual Convention with creator Wendy Shaner

May 5, 2020

Earlier this year, before ANY of this COVID stuff happened, my friend Wendy Shaner put together a virtual comic book convention on Kickstarter called the Naughty Faeries Online Comic Con Experience.

I had no idea what she was thinking, and I was confused for just about the whole Kickstarter, but she raised over $13,000 so I knew she was doing something right. 

When the world ended, she seemed like the most prescient guru of all time, because she was WAY ahead of the curve on that one. 

Since then I've run three conventions, but while they've been well-received they have not even come CLOSE to making me $13,000. 

So, I thought it would be a good idea to have Wendy on the show to talk about her experience, and then dovetail it with my experience running shows. 

This is likely the future, at least in the short term, so we might as well turn into the skid.
