DVD cover by Les Weiler
The STAPLE! DVD features interviews and panel discussions with special guests of the
STAPLE! 2005 show. From these interviews you can learn about the dedication required to complete an independent comic book, strategies for
publishing webcomics, and personal stories about leaving The Day Job in order to freelance.
A photo montage after the opening credits shows the STAPLE! pre-party at Austin Books, the show itself at the Elks Lodge, a shot of the exterior of Castleberry's Cafe (who provided a 10% discount to all STAPLE! attendees), and the Austin Sketch Group meeting the following day at The Hideout.
Interviews with Rafael Navarro, Chris Moreno, Drew Edwards, Scott Kurtz, Terry Moore, Shannon Wheeler, Michael Lark, Barb Lien-Cooper, and Jessie Garza.
The second half of the DVD includes the Webcomics Panel Discussion and the Indy Publishing Panel Discussion.
