KAPOW! Careers in Comics & Graphic Novels
Thursday, January 16 at 6:00 PM
Visual storytelling has transformed the arts and entertainment industries by taking audiences from the page to the big screen and back again. Whether you’re a comics fan or graphic novel reader, the genre has seen writers like Ta-Nehisi Coates and Marjorie Liu pen for Black Panther and The X-Men, respectively. We’ll explore the mass appeal and duality of this industry in our panel through conversations with writers, illustrators, agents, and publishers.
