Building a World in Comics
When you open a comic, a world appears on the page in front of you. What goes into creating this world on the part of the writer, and on the part of the artist? Is the process different between fiction and nonfiction? And what pieces do you need to add to that world to make it come alive on the page?
With Mike Cavallaro, George O’Connor, Susan Kim, and Laurence Klavan, moderated by Tucker Stone
A Day in the Studio
What does creating comics look like on a day-to-day basis? Join four comics creators to see pictures of their studios, a discussion of their process, and the ins and outs, ups and downs, of making a living in comics.
With Jane Yolen, Dave Roman, Tracy White, and Matt Madden moderated by Brian Heater
Wild, Wacky, and Zany Comics Adventures
Variant Stage/Kids Day
Adventure! Excitement! Fun times! Step up for adventure as talented cartoonists take the stage to tell their own stories in comics format – and yours!
With Andrew Arnold, Faith Erin Hicks, and Dave Roman
How are comics different from prose books, from picture books and screenplays and illustration? What makes a story something that should be told in the comics format? Four cartoonists talk about their inspiration to work in the comics medium and how panels and speech balloons come together to make great storytelling.
With Faith Erin Hicks, Carla Jablonski, Tracy White, and Jane Yolen, moderated by Margaret Maloney
