Comics Alternative, On Location: The Comics Canon: Reloaded!!!! Fire!!!! Panel at HeroesCon 2016

Listen to the podcast!

Canon Fodder


The discussants covered a lot of ground on the panel, so much so that the session lasted longer than its scheduled hour. Andy Mansell kept the conversation flowing, posing a series of questions regarding the formation, the benefits, and the liabilities of a comics canon, and there was healthy response from the audience.

A note about the sound quality of this recording: About 10 1/2 minutes into the panel recording, there is a slight break that cuts out around 30 seconds of the session. This is because the convention’s sound technicians momentarily stopped the recording device so as to hook it up to the room’s sound system, which would provide cleaner recording. Also, questions and comments from both Andy Mansell and the audience might not be as clear, at times, and this is because they didn’t have microphones to target their voices.


Panelists from left to right include Mark Englebrecht, Tom Heintjes, Craig Fisher, Andy Kunka, Derek Royal, and Craig Yoe. Moderator Andy Mansell is sitting in front and facing the panel.
