For the superhero comic fan, many of the panels and papers will seem too stodgy and academic, but you may be interested in these Saturday afternoon sessions:
Comics production roundtable
Stuart Moore and Jamal Igle (Firestorm) discuss the steps of assembling a comic book for a major US publisher
Comics and politics
Phil Jiminez (The Invisibles, Infinite Crisis, Otherworld) and Denny O’Neil (Batman, Green Lantern/Green Arrow) discuss the challenges of addressing political issues in superhero comics
For the rest of us, there’s a wide range of study, including sessions focused on manga, French comics, and early history of the form, as well as displays and talks covering editorial cartoonist Herb Block and the unclassifiable Jules Feiffer. All events are held at the Library of Congress, James Madison Building.
