New Yorker cartoonist Shannon Wheeler & Comixology explain SXSW panels (exclusive)

NOTE: GrowthBeat -- VentureBeat's provocative new marketing-tech event -- is a week away! We've gathered the best and brightest to explore the data, apps, and science of successful marketing. Get the full scoop here, and grab your tickets while they last.

As part Comixology’s effort to raise awareness about the creator-owned digital comics via Comixology Submit, the startup has teamed up with indie fan favorite artist Shannon Wheeler to illustrate the insanity that is SXSW.

A former Austin, Texas, resident, Wheeler is perhaps best known for independent comic book Too Much Coffee Man, but he has also gained attention for his work as a cartoonist for The New Yorker. (Also his comics are rad.)

Comixology has shared the first three digital web comics about this week’s SXSW Interactive exclusively with VentureBeat, and I must say they are both pretty accurate. (Especially the top one, which I’m fighting with right now.)

Check back soon for a few more comics from Wheeler.
