Moderated by Brent Chittenden, the pros we meet are Phil Noto, Sean Galloway and Derek Laufman. They spoke about how they got started in comics, the culture shock of going from another industry to comics, how they all draw from the hardware they use to the software, designing characters and toys, their work schedules, the best advice they got, work they did that stands out, the benefits of a deadline and toughest deadline they had.
