FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 8

2:30 PM-3:30 PM: Seriously, What’s Up with Editors? (Room 6)

Haven’t you always wondered what a comic book editor does? Do you think you have what it takes to be one? Dark Horse wants to give you insight on breaking into the industry! Join artist Tyler Crook (Harrow County) and Dark Horse editors Katii O’Brien, Megan Walker, and Patrick Thorpe for a rare behind-the-panels look at the secrets to building successful comic and graphic novel programs.

SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 9

5:30 PM-6:30 PM: Artists Who Write: The Art and Craft of Comics (Room 6)

Whether it’s a murder mystery, a superhero adventure, or a new take on history, creators put a lot of thought into the sequential art that drives stories told in comics. Join some of the industry’s most talented artists—Colleen Coover (Bandette), Dave Gibbons (The Originals), and Cameron Stewart (Fight Club 2) as they discuss turning an idea into a full-fledged story and how they continue to keep their writing fresh. Artist Patric Reynolds (Joe Golem) will moderate this star-studded panel!

SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 10

12:30 PM-1:30 PM: Dark Horse Manga (Room 6)

This year is the 30th anniversary of the manga industry in North America—an industry born from the love of comics fans and comics publishers for the work of Japanese creators. Dark Horse was one of the manga pioneers in the 1980s, and continues to publish Japanese titles ranging from Danganronpa, Cardcaptor Sakura, and Unofficial Hatsune Mix to I Am a Hero, Lone Wolf & Cub, and Berserk.

SATURDAY, APRIL 22
3:00–4:00 p.m. Panel Room S403 The Millennial’s Guide to Keeping Comics Alive

The integration of social media into society has completely changed how people communicate with each other, and the comics industry is not invulnerable to this change. Join Dark Horse creators Kristen Gudsnuk (Henchgirl) and Kel McDonald (Buffy: The High School Years, Misfits of Avalon) to discuss the implications of social media on the industry and how creators use social media to engage with fans.

SUNDAY, APRIL 23
1:15–2:15 p.m. Panel Room S403 The Un-CONventional Superheroes

For decades, popular culture has been dominated by stories from superhero comic books. Most people can’t think of either superheroes or comics without thinking of the other. In recent years, Dark Horse creators have sought to pay homage to superheroes while also putting a modern spin on the idea of heroics. Join Jim Calafiore (Leaving Megalopolis), Kristen Gudsnuk (Henchgirl), and Jeff Lemire (Black Hammer) for a lively conversation about superheroes and antiheroes in the modern era and how their characters seek to challenge society’s perceptions of the superhero.
