Graphic Memory
UPDATED: Thu, Jul 18, 03:56PM
There are many truths to every story and many tales that paint a picture of a certain event or time. Evoking a sense of that time, place, and feeling is not an easy task. Just as a scent on a breeze can transport us back in time, so can the perfect graphic novel. Learn from Comic-Con special guests how they use history, memory, and emotion to tell moving and personal stories. Panelists include Ebony Flowers (Hot Comb), Ulli Lust (How I Tried to Be a Good Person), Paco Roca (The House), Seth (It's A Good Life), Mary Fleener, along with Jason Lutes and moderator Charles Brownstein.
