Believe it or not, I do leave the house every now and then. But only if it has to do with comics!
Here's a list of stuff I'll be at in the next few weeks:
SPLAT! A Graphic Novel Symposium
at the New York Center of Independent Publishing (NYCIP)
I'll be participating on this panel:
Comics: For Kids, Too
2:15PM - 3:30PM
When the shift in comics readership came, it caught people by surprise. Even though articles about â€œgraphic novels for adultsâ€ are often titled, â€œComics: not just for kids anymore!â€ - the interesting truth is that comics are now read more by adults than by children. This panel brings kid-friendly authors and editors together to talk about the special art of making comics that can capture kidsâ€™ imaginations and keep them reading comics for life.
Misako Rocks!, Writer and illustrator, Biker Girl, Rock nâ€™ Roll Love.
Dave Roman, Nickelodeon Kids editor and comics creator.
David Saylor, Vice President, Associate Publisher and Creative Director for Hardcover Books, Scholastic Inc, and Founding Editorial Director of the GRAPHIX imprint at Scholastic.
