Media Release — Conversational Comics, the three-panel speaker series sponsored by the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund, continues at host venue Union Pool in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, on Saturday, July 11 at 2:00 pm.
Jessica Abel (Artbabe, La Perdida), Jason Little (Shutterbug Follies) and Matthew Thurber (1-800-Mice, Kramers Ergot) will talk with comics critic Bill Kartalopoulos (Parsons, Print Magazine) about the nature of narrative and fiction in comics. We’ll consider forms of storytelling that comics can adapt, and others that comics can generate.
Then stick around to get a book signed, hit the taco truck, and sip a summer drink with our featured cartoonists.
