We’re on a panel called “Graphic Novels From the Inside Out” at the Willamette Writers Conference, moderated by screenwriter Randall Jahnson.
“Portland is a major center for the flourishing graphic novel and comics industry. Publishing giants like Oni Press, Dark Horse, and Top Shelf make their home here as do countless freelance writers, artists, and editors. Join James Lucas Jones, Editor-in-Chief at Oni Press (Scott Pilgrim, Petrograd, I Was the Cat), writer-illustrator Mark Fearing (Earthling!), and husband-wife artist-writer team Paul Guinan and Anina Bennett (Boilerplate, Frank Reade, Heartbreakers) for a lively discussion about the wild, weird, and wonderful world of this visually-driven narrative art form. How to break in; what impresses editors; the collaboration between writers and artists; print versus digital comics; and the genre’s relationship with Hollywood are just a few of the topics that will be covered.”
