Friday, 4/8/16, 1:30 PM - 2:30 PM (T305)
You scream when your favorite character moves off the page and you cheer when they finally get their way. Drama works! Join us as Joshua Williamson (NAILBITER), Steve Orlando (VIRGIL), Meredith McClaren (HINGES), Nick Barber (RINGSIDE), Jim Zub (WAYWARD), and a few special guests dig into just why drama is so crucial to storytelling.

Image Comics: Where Creators Own Collaboration
Sunday, 4/10/16, 2:45 PM - 3:45 PM (T304)
Writer, artist, colorist, letterer—comics are often a collaborative art form, and collaboration means cooperation.
