THE INDIE COMICS PANEL ROOM, as it was titled in the panel schedule, was the final panel I attended at MegaCon 2015. It occurred in Room 205BC from 1:20 - 2:10 pm. Panel Moderator Terry Cronin led this interactive panel in a discussion of the challenges of becoming an independent comic book creator, finding reliable talent to work with, handling portfolio critiques from established professionals, and treating your comic book career in a professional and businesslike manner. The panelists touched on these topics and more through sharing stories from their own careers.
