Creators who have adapted myths, legends, fairytales, and American folklore for the graphic medium discuss how comics are continuing age-old traditions of mythologizing the human experience. Topics will also include how the comics medium can work as a tool for educators looking for primary and supplementary material to teach these and related subjects. Speakers are Johnnie Christmas (Firebug, Angel Catbird), Marco Finnegan (Crossroad Blues), John Jennings (I Am Alfonso Jones, Kindred: A Graphic Novel Adaptation), and Kit Seaton (Afar, Norroway). Moderated by Dr. Katie Monnin (author at Pop Culture Classroom).
