Attention nerds: The Lakeland Community College Comics Symposium is this Saturday. Tix are $12 at the door. Lectures start at 9 a.m., and the first 100 people will receive free copies of the The Funny Times. Renowned illustrator C.F. Payne (who drew the Time cover illustration to the right) will speak at 3 p.m. about the “Orphan Works” bills being proposed to Congress, which would allow fair use of images if the artist of the work cannot be located. A great place to network — OK, the only place to network — if you’re hoping to draw cartoons for a living. — James Renner
