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.

Recovering Indigenous History Through Comics
UPDATED: Mon, Jul 08, 11:16PM
This year is the 500th anniversary of Spain's conquest of Mexico and the 250th anniversary of San Diego's founding. Since those events, and others related and similar, were near-apocalyptic for the indigenous peoples of North America, it's an appropriate time to reflect on their histories and how they experienced these events. Unfortunately, indigenous history in North America has often been distorted, ignored, or even lost. Can comics be a tool to help recover this history? Moderator Johnny Bear Contreras (Kumeyaay artist/sculptor and fellow panelists Paul Guinan (Aztec Empire graphic novel), Elijah Benson (Mandan Hidatsa Arikara Nation Education Department, NAGPRA comics), Stan Rodriguez (Kumeyaay cultural leader), Jen Shannon (cultural anthropology professor, NAGPRA comics), Kate Spilde (cultural anthropology professor), John Swogger (archaeologist and Illustrator, NAGPRA comics) will answer this question and discuss their current comic projects to recover indigenous history.
