Graphic Novel Panel


Authors @ Acadia presents: Graphic Novel Panel
Wednesday January 16th, 2013
7-9 pm, KCIC Auditorium
snow date: Jan. 23

A collaboration between English, the Vaughan Memorial Library, and Women’s & Gender Studies brings you next week’s Graphic Novel Panel, featuring artists (Rebecca Kraatz & Mark Oakley), publishers (Andy Brown: Conundrum Press & Mark Oakley: IBox Publishing), and a comic book store owner (Calum Johnston: Strange Adventures).

As we expect a varied audience, ranging from those for whom comics/graphic novels are completely new territory to others for whom it is quite familiar, the first question, after some introductions, will explore panel members’ personal journeys in the multiverse of comics and how they’ve come to do what they do.

The panel promises some interesting overlaps given the four different careers, and will explore the panelists current interests, changes in the field & gender over the last couple of decades or so, as well as changes in format, questions of design, and the ever shifting world of print, distribution and sales. In the final segment, panelists will have a conversation regarding the creation process and practice, publishing (independent & press), sales and distribution and paper vs e-formats, and whatever else comes up.

The final half hour will be Q & A. If you’d like to send in some question(s) in advance that would be helpful—please do so by Monday January 14th at midnight: andrea.schwenke.wyile@acadiau.ca

We’ll leave at least a few minutes for impromptu questions as well.
