The Millennial’s Guide to Keeping Comics Alive 

3:00 p.m.–4:00 p.m.  Panel Room S403

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), Kel McDonald (Buffy: The High School Years, Misfits of Avalon), and Eliot Rahal (The Paybacks) to discuss the implications of social media on the industry and how creators use social media to engage with fans.


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

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.
