Comics Storytelling
Sunday Oct. 10 3:45-4:45pm
Room 1A17
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
