This week I spoke to Milan Ilich regarding the digital comics workshops he runs. Unfortunately, however, I will not be able to cover his work with first-time dads as previously hoped.
Milan is currently working on his PhD proposal, which will explore the social benefits of digital comics for minority and disadvantaged groups. This is a story we both want to see covered and are now waiting on his social work expert to agree to talk with me.
My other story is also coming along. The game shop Good Games have been very accommodating and have agreed to my request to attend and review their pre-release event for the next Magic: The Gathering set later this month.
It also looks like there is a PhD student I will be able to talk to for that article. He is working with Good Games for his PhD on Eastern influences in Western pop culture.
