To be Deadpool is Not Consent
People believe that dressing up as Deadpool gives them an excuse to act inappropriately and without restraint. Some even believe that they know the character by what friends have told them and what few comics they've read. In this panel, learn what Wade Wilson is all about. History, family, friends, loves, losses, humorous times, sad times, and current story up to his recent marriage, all from a fellow D. Pool cosplayer.

Why Should Players Care about Story in Video Games?
Video games are a unique medium that combine audio, visual, and interactive elements. This makes video games unlike any other media as a story-telling mechanism. But why do games need story in order to be enjoyable? And how can video games take advantage of their narrative capabilities? In this panel, we’ll take a look at some of the interesting ways that video games tell stories through interactivity and examine the role of video games as narrative devices. Each panelist will share some examples of story-telling done right and done wrong and give their personal dos and don’ts for video game story-telling.

The Delinquent Comic Art of Willy Harroff
Who Knows What Evil Lurks in the Hearts of Men (& Women)? I Do! I Do!

Ever wonder when parents first started NOT trusting their kids? The 1950s! Soon after the words “juvenile delinquency” were paired together, no child was spared! Suddenly comics, rock & roll, smoking and the birds & the bees were suspects. Comic book burnings literally swept the nation. Sound familiar?

This humorous, but informative talk would include an homage to the fantastic comic book artists and writers of the 1950s and 60s along with a stinging indictment against the self-appointed culture wars critic of the era, Dr. Fredric Wertham (think Dr. Phil). Wertham, author of Seduction of the Innocent, declared comics were responsible for juvenile delinquency and, unintentionally, brought the Comics Code Authority into practice, permanently whitewashing the quality out of mainstream comics.

In my own comics, I take Wertham’s quasi-scientific argument to the extreme. Wertham claimed horror and crime comics caused youth to go on delinquent, sometimes murderous, crime sprees and sexual romps. I apply Wertham’s bogus method of removing micro-sections of early comics for close inspection, morph them into beautiful quilt-like kaleidoscopic patterns and transform them into fresh funny images.

Cosplay =/= Consent aka basic Con and Cosplay Ettiquette
The ‘Cosplay is not Consent’ movement actually reaches out a LOT further than just through being photographed without permission. It’s more of an anti-harassment movement, which can encompass anything from inappropriate gawking/glaring, which can make people feel very uncomfortable, to inappropriate and unwelcome touching or word exchange, which both men and women have been victim to.  Especially in the geek community where many of the people are too shy or afraid to speak up, or worried that by saying no, they’re going to cause an issue of some sort, even though they were just put in a position of feeling violated.  This is just a basic etiquette panel on, “just because you’re at a con, doesn’t mean all rules are out the window!” People still have feelings, there are still boundaries that shouldn’t be crossed just like on the street or in the office, and just because a costume is showing some skin….it’s not an excuse for inappropriate behavior.  Through a series of power point presentation and mini-skits, we’ll go over some do’s and don’ts during certain situations that may and will come up during your convention experience.

Teaching with Pop Culture
Did you ever go to class and it was the most boring thing you had ever experienced and the birds outside provided more entertainment. I have. So what did I do, when I teach I use as much popular culture as possible. Have you ever watched Firefly as part of your course or had Netflix as your required textbook. That is the way I teach. If you are an instructor and love popular culture and don't think you can use it in class, any class, think again. Pick this panel and let me show you how. Let me give you some suggests and let others help you along. You can use anything from Duck Dynasty to The Hunger Games Trilogoy to the new Marvel heroine Kamala Khan.
