Stocktoncon features Ben Schwartz, indie panel and Sacramento creatives

Empire's Comics Vault's owner, Ben Schwartz, will participate in an Indy Publishing Panel discussion with Justin Orr, Jusscope Press, and Hainanu Saulque, aka, Nooligan, at this weekend's Stocktoncon.

In addition to running Empire's Comics Vault, Ben also publishes comics via ECV Press.

From what we've read on the Recordnet.com article,
"Pop culture event grows to two days in third year", this is going to be two days of pop culture awesomeness -- yes, we said, "AWESOMENESS."

Break Into Indy Publishing

Attend the panel discussion, and meet and speak with Justin, Nu, and Ben on Saturday, August 9th at 12 pm in the hotel board room.
