Boy, do we have exciting news! This July Europe Comics will be making its official San Diego Comic-Con debut with its very own booth (#1220), panels, live drawing events and signing sessions. But let’s take it one step at a time.
Europe Comics will also be hosting two exciting panels where European authors will meet with top American authors. The first panel – How Old is Young Adult? – will bring together Mathieu Reynés and the critically-acclaimed American novelist Matthew J. Kirby (Last Descendants – Assassin’s Creed series), where the two will discuss and compare their work, experience and readership, as seen from the two sides of the Atlantic. The panel will be moderated by Brigid Alverson (comics and graphic novels journalist for Publishers Weekly and School Library Journal amongst other publications and blogs).
The second panel – Europe vs USA: European and American Creators Meet – will be hosted by Publishers Weekly‘s Calvin Reid. During the panel, Roger, Mathieu Ryenès and Gabriel Hernández Walta will meet with special guests Jason Latour (Southern Bastards) and Andrew C Robinson (The 5th Beatle) to discuss their experiences as comics creators working on two different continents.
Stay tuned for more updates!
