  • IMAGE COMICS: CREATING THE FUTURE OF CREATIVITY – Thursday 5th October, 4:45pm – 5:45pm (Room 1A02)

Do you have a story to tell that you think might be “too weird” or a little bit off-kilter? Here’s the truth: anything goes in comics. The only limits are your time and imagination, so why hold back? Come to this panel and follow the example of Seth M. Peck (THE REALM), Cat Staggs (CROSSWIND), Jeremy Haun & Jason A. Hurley (THE BEAUTY), Brenden Fletcher (MOTOR CRUSH), and Matt Wilson (THE WICKED + THE DIVINE). They swing for the fences every time, and so should you.

  • IMAGE COMICS: THE FUTURE OF GENRE – Friday 6th October, 6:45pm – 7:45pm (Room 1A21)

What kind of comics are you into? Are you a horror fiend? A crime fan? On the hook for sci-fi? Comics are perfectly suited to tell all types of stories. Come listen to Wes Craig (DEADLY CLASS), Ryan Browne (CURSE WORDS), Donny Cates (GOD COUNTRY), Gregg Schigiel (PIX), and Amy Reeder (ROCKET GIRL) discuss telling stories that range from the realistic to the magical, what drives their creative engines, and what they’re looking forward to seeing more of in the future.

  • IMAGE COMICS: THE FUTURE OF FANTASY – Saturday 7th October, 4:00pm – 5:00pm (Room 1A24)

Fantasy has long been a genre where we discuss our deepest fears, express our quietest hopes, or even just enjoy a rollicking story of swords and magic. Justin Jordan (THE FAMILY TRADE), Meredith Finch (ROSE), Sebastian Girner (SCALES & SCOUNDRELS), SIMON SPURRIER (CRY HAVOC), CASPAR WIJNGAARD (ANGELIC), and W. Maxwell Prince (ONE WEEK IN THE LIBRARY) have more than proven that they know their way around a fantasy tale, and they’re here to talk about telling stories about fantastic places while living on our mundane Earth, avoiding common pitfalls of the genre, and making the unbelievable beloved.

  • IMAGE COMICS: THE FUTURE OF STORYTELLING – Sunday 8th October, 3:45pm – 4:45pm (Room 1A21)

Comics aren’t just words or pictures. They’re the intersection of both, and mastering the art of comics storytelling can be tricky. Marjorie Liu (MONSTRESS), Kyle Higgins (HADRIAN’S WALL), Morgan Beem (THE FAMILY TRADE), Andrew MacLean (HEADLOPPER), ALISON SAMPSON (WINNEBAGO GRAVEYARD), and Cliff Chiang (PAPER GIRLS) co-create some of the most beautiful and powerful comics on store shelves. Come listen to them discuss the ins and outs of storytelling and how to make your comics the best they can be.
