Thanks for listening!
Jimmy’s TCAF Panels
I’ll be moderating a couple of panels at TCAF this weekend. Come on by and check them out!
Sports Vs. Comic Books: Making Peace Between Schoolyard Enemies
Jocks Vs. Nerds is an engrained trope, but times have thankfully changed. The North American comics industry is catching up to its European and Japanese compatriots, realizing that blending popular sporting events with comics and graphic novels goes together like peanut butter and chocolate, and the result are great comics that appeal to an entirely new artist. Join authors Box Brown (Andre The Giant), Reinhard Kleist (The Boxer), Wai Au (Fujosports), and Jesse Lonergan (All-Star) for a spirited discussion of this emerging genre of comics!
@ The Pilot Saturday, May 10 11am-12pm
Spotlight: Reinhard Kleist
This would be a feature interview with Kleist about his work and career, with a special focus on The Boxer, which is debuting in English at the festival.
@The Marriott 50 Saturday, May 10 12pm-1:15pm
