  • moderator Sat 10:00 - 10:50 AM, How the Internet is Transforming Comicdom, Rocket Tent (1)
    Moderator: John Logan; Panelists: Erik Evjen, Tony Gregori, John Logan

    From alternative comics to webcomics, creators are finding new ways to reach and connect with their audience. Forums and social media allow fans to participate in the stories they love, and even create entirely new storylines. How are these changes transforming the comic landscape?

  • Break Sat 10:50 - Sat Noon
  • moderator Sat Noon - 12:50 PM, Adaptation: From Page to Screen, Dragon Pavilion (1)
    Moderator: John Logan; Panelists: Tony Gregori, John Logan, Eldon Thompson

    As more comic book stories move from the page to the big screen, how do we handle the adapted material? How literal (or liberal) is tolerable? Discussions of race/gender changes between adaptations, how they impact fans, & how it might bring new readership to our favorite titles.

  • panel Sat 1:00 - 1:50 PM, Queers in Comics, Rocket Tent (1)
    Moderator: William C. Riley; Panelists: H Martin Cox (Dameon), John Logan, William C. Riley

    Representation matters. Comics give both original queer characters and reimagined pre-existing character a space to flourish, but what about the transition to the big screen? Come join us as we discuss our favorite characters, hetero-washing, and why this medium means so much to LGBTQ fans.
