Image Comics: We Believe In Imagination  
   
Comics offer a limitless canvas for expression. Without the constraints of special effects budgets or runtimes, the medium stands at the crest of mind-bending, boundary-pushing storytelling, relentlessly challenging the conventions of fiction—especially in science fiction and fantasy. Narrative cosmonauts Morgan Beem (The Family Trade), Ryan Browne (Curse Words), Sloane Leong (Prism Stalker), Ram V(Paradiso), and Kyle Higgins (The Dead Hand) create realities designed to enthrall. Come discover the methods of their madness.

Image Comics: We Believe In Creativity  
 
From scam-artist cops infecting LA’s underbelly to rampaging volcano goddesses, these new comics take full advantage of every geography and era. But how do cartoonists trip on these intoxicating worlds, and how do they evolve? John Layman(Chew), Donny Cates (God Country, Redneck), Johnnie Christmas (Firebug), Steve Lieber (The Fix), Pornsak Pichetshote (Infidel), and Anthony Del Col (Son of Hitler) chat about cultivating new genres for new audiences.

Sunday, March 4, 2018: 2:30 – 3:30 PM

Image Comics: We Believe In Storytelling         

What do Charles Soule (Curse Words), Tini Howard (Hack/Slash: Resurrection), Jacob Semahn (No. 1 With A Bullet), Jim Zub (Wayward), and Farel Dalrymple(Proxima Centauri) have in common? They craft the mythologies of today. Do you want to learn more about creating comics? Do you want to learn how character, plot, rhythm, and dialogue combine in the best stories?
