Last night in London, Bleeding Cool’s Rich Johnston chaired a TX panel with Karl Kerschl, Cameron Stewart and Ramon Perez at the ComiCA Festival (aka the London International Comic Arts Festival.
The guys talked about their superhero work, mostly for DC Comics, coupled with an innate disatisfaction with the superhero form, whatever manner it takes and a fear for the future of the publishing model. And how this led them to Transmission X, an online comics collective publishing their own work.
The full panel description:
The Superhuman Condition: New Trends In Superhero Comics

North American guest artists Cameron (Seaguy) Stewart, Karl (Teen Titans) Kerschl and Ramon (NYX) Perez share their passion for the superhero genre and their experiences working for the American majors Marvel and DC, with live drawing demos and tips.
