Coming in September: Paper versus pixels: comics, digital media and their mutant offspring - an evening of talks about comics in print, on-screen and everything in between. Presented as part of Brighton Digital Festival 2015!
Yep, that's right - I've gone and organised an event! It's all going to be happening on Tuesday September 29th, from 6-8pm at the new Sussex Humanities Lab, based in Silverstone Building, Sussex University. Directions can be found here. A big thank you to the lovely people there for letting me use the space.
And guess what? It's free!
Here's the official list of presentations so far:
When is a comic not a comic? When it’s an app Comic artist Jaime Huxtable relates his experiences illustrating Think Like Churchill (Touchpress, 2014), an app that mixes comics, animation, historical archive and gameplay into a new breed of graphic narrative.
The comic page as time machine – panel based time travel and simultaneity in From Hell, One Soul and Here All comics are a form of time travel. Comic journalist, podcaster and film critic Alex Fitch explains how the paper page of the comic can create a transcendent experience that more interactive formats (such as tablet computers) can only hint at.
More speakers to be announced, including artists from Myriad Editions
So make a note of the date and see you there!
