Event description

A Creators in Conversation panel with graphic novelists Gavin Aung Than (WA), Dan McGuiness (SA) and Kay O’Neill (NZ), with Dave Follett (SA) (chair).

Bam! Pow! Zap! Comics aren’t just for adults any more. In the decades following 'Watchmen' and 'The Dark Knight Returns', comics were dominated by grim and gritty reboots. But creators and publishers are reengaging with younger readers, and achieving worldwide success in the process. Join our panel of prominent graphic novelists as they discuss the joys and challenges of creating comics for all ages. From gentle fantasy to laugh-out-loud comedy, these authors are inspiring the next generation of comics readers. Just like our panellists’ books, this session will capture your imagination and stir your heart.
