Event Details

Based right here in KC, Go Comics from Universal Uclick is home to some of the most popular comics and editorial cartoons in the world, including Calvin & Hobbes, Dilbert, and Peanuts. They're also a storehouse of many incisive and hilarious political cartoonists on both ends of the liberal-conservative spectrum.

"The beauty of our product is that the work is immediately affected by current events and today's headlines," says Gene Willis, director of marketing at Universal Uclick.

On the eve of the 2012 Election, find out how Gene and his @GoComics team are leveraging social media to raise their comics creators' profiles and connect with audiences hungry for political humor, both red and blue.

Also learn how Go Comics has used tools like Twitter to give classic characters such as Garfield new life in the digital media world.


Connecting for Good Computer Drive

Immediately following the breakfast, from 9-10am, SMCKC and Connecting for Good are holding a computer drive to collect internet-connected devices to be distributed to lower income Kansas City residents. The hard drives will be wiped clean and hardware refurbished by Synetic Technologies. Tax receipts will be provided. You can help in bringing computers and internet connections to Kansas City's fiberhoods!
