Vancouver Writers Fest

32. Comic Can

The Vancouver Writers Fest presents


Moderator: Ken Boesem

Whether it be Marvel, DC Comics or The Simpsons, teens are obsessed with the comic book world. Comics and graphic novels offer a creative way to immerse yourself in a story, whether for escapism or entertainment, and, with wildly original works each year, its fan base continues to expand. Three such champions are Ian Boothby, best known for his work as the lead writer on Simpsons Comics; Michael Hingston, Calvin & Hobbes superfan; and E. Paul Zehr, author of a series of books examining the possible reality of superpowers. Today these three accomplished authors discuss their passion for comics; how they see the art form developing; and why it can inspire, entertain and educate. 

Suitable for grades 8-12 and adults.
