Shonen Beam Panel at Ohayocon 2010

SB will be at Ohayocon 2010, presenting a panel entitled “History of the Shonen Magazine War” (sometimes abbreviated to “History of Shonen”). The panel synopsis:

Today, shonen magazines and their hit franchises benefit from tremendous exposure and popularity among Western audiences, but the same can’t be said for those that helped create and sustain the magazines. This panel will focus on the three major shonen magazines (Weekly Shonen Jump, Weekly Shonen Magazine, and Shonen Sunday), starting with their inceptions and working forward through time. We will examine the major series and authors that helped boost their magazines’ sales, define their magazines’ style, and influence each new generation of young authors. Also, we’ll present and discuss opinions on a variety of subjects, such as the current state of each magazine. It’ll be fun and informative, and we hope to see you there.

(If none of that means anything to you: DO YOU LIKE NARUTO ??? Come find out what awesome series came before it!)

Currently scheduled: Sunday, 11am (2 hours), Panels 3 (Union D-E)
