WONDERCON: SPOTLIGHT ON BEN TEMPLESMITH

The Spotlight on Ben Templesmith became a symposium on media convergence at WonderCon in San Francisco on Saturday. The panel included Templesmith, writers Rob Schrab (“Scud: the Disposable Assassin”), Gerry Duggan (“The Last Christmas”) and Antony Johnston (“Wasteland,” “Dead Space”) Moderated by Rantz Hoseley, the group considered the future of comics, the mining of the medium for film and video games concepts, and the possibilities of digital delivery.

When asked if comics-film-games cross-pollination benefits the comics industry, Templesmith noted the most obvious benefit from being utilized as a film property is the sales bump a source comic receives when the film is released. In a more widespread sense, though, he said the promotion of comic book properties is becoming better and more organized, adding, “And we’re getting a bit more respect these days.”
