PANELS HOSTED BY IMAGE COMICS:

Image Comics: The Future of Adventure
Friday, 6:30 pm, Room 6
Decades ago, comics captured the hearts of millions thanks to the creative and never-before-seen adventures on the printed page. Now, the tradition continues, thanks to creators like Steve Lieber (THE FIX), Meredith Finch (ROSE), Valentine de Landro (BITCH PLANET), Kelly Sue DeConnick (BITCH PLANET), and two very special and unexpected guests. Join these creators as they discuss the art of the thrill, and balancing free-wheeling adventure tales against their real life counterparts.

Image Comics: The Future of Storytelling
Saturday, 2:30 pm, Room 6
Image Comics is home to some of the best storytellers in the comics business. The trick isn’t using the same pencil or ink as your hero—it’s thinking about comics in new and exciting ways. Emma Ríos (PRETTY DEADLY), Daniel Warren Johnson (EXTREMITY), Nick Dragotta (EAST OF WEST), Leila del Duca (AFAR), and Matt Wilson (THE WICKED + THE DIVINE) co-create some of the most beautiful comics on the shelves, and are going to give you the most valuable art lesson you’ll get all year.

Image Comics: The Future of Genre
Sunday, 10:30 am, Room 6
The Future of Comics is in stories for everyone. In comics, any genre can be a smash hit or connect with readers. Do you like romance, horror, autobio, action, comedy, slice-of-life, or something else entirely? Greg Rucka (BLACK MAGICK), Michael Lark (LAZARUS), Megan Hutchison (ROCKSTARS), Joe Harris (ROCKSTARS), Brenden Fletcher (MOTOR CRUSH), and Matt Fraction (SEX CRIMINALS) create works that run the gamut and may just capture your heart.
