Looking for something to do Feb 18-20? Come visit Anime Milwaukee 2011!

Last year the show saw tons of growth, but what’s nice is that it’s not an over-whelming show for people unaccustomed to attending conventions. This year they’re in a new (larger) venue, and they’re anticipating an even larger growth in attendance.

I attended the show last year as a guest and will be returning as one again this year. The show has also given m…e a very generous panel schedule for the show, so lots to do and see the entire weekend. Below is the list of my panels along with times, locations, and descriptions.

Hope to see you all at Anime Milwaukee 2011!

Once upon a time, professional comic writer Trevor Mueller had an idea for a comic series about a slacker, his girlfriend…and a little Asian demon who swallows souls, and works at a coffee shop. Since that time, @$$hole! has become a multi-award nominated webcomic series loved worldwide.
