Publishers Weekly Comics World: Serious Pictures: Comics and Journalism in a New Era

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

What better way to bring information to the public than the judicious combination of words and pictures? Comics offer the ability to attract attention and focus it, while making a complex journalistic narrative both lively to read and, as studies have shown, easier for readers to comprehend. This panel offers historical and contemporary examples of the use of comics as a journalistic tool and shows how the wedding of comics and nonfiction reporting is a match made in media heaven. With Susie Cagle, Andy Warner (Cartoon Picayune), Stan Mack (Taxes, the Tea Party, and Those Revolting Rebels: A History in Comics of the American Revolution), Ed Piskor (WizzyWig), Dan Carino (Cartoon Movement), and Chris Butcher (The Beguiling.) Moderated by PW Comics World co-editor Calvin Reid.
