SATURDAY, APRIL 7

4:15-5:15 PM: When the Haints Speak: A Conversation with Cullen Bunn and Tyler Crook

Harrow County has captivated fans and critics alike since 2015. Created by Cullen Bunn (The Sixth Gun) and Tyler Crook (B.P.R.D.), Harrow County follows the story of 18-year-old Emmy as she realizes that the ghosts, ghouls and goblins that surround Harrow County are all too real. After the townsfolk realize that Emmy has a connection with the creatures that lurk in the shadows, they put her on the run for her life.

(Location: Room S503)

Whether it’s the adventures of a villain with a heart of gold, an underwater murder mystery, the life of a cartoonist, or anything in between, creators put a lot of thought into the sequential art that drives stories told in comics. Join Kristen Gudsnuk (Henchgirl), Ethan Young (Life Between Panels), and Matt Kindt (Dept. H) as they discuss turning an idea into a full-fledged story and how they continue to keep their writing fresh.
