- The legacy of comics podcasting continues. The world of comics podcasts has changed since they began in 2005 and this is your chance to see the pioneers of comics podcasting discuss how the comics industry has evolved and how it’s affected podcasting. Always a panel full of passion and surprises, thanks to the podcasters appearing on the panel, who include Bob Bretall (The Comic Book Page), Brian “Pants” Christman (Comic Geek Speak), Jimmy Aquino (Comic News Insider), Josh Flanagan (iFanboy), John Siuntres (Word Balloon), Pat Loika (Loikamania!), and Cameron Hatheway (Cammy’s Comic Corner).
