SEAN HARRIS OLIVER, FAITH ERIN HICKS, MARIKO TAMAKI
Moderator: Izzy Laird
When the alchemy is right, smart narratives and dynamic illustrations can come together to tell bold, boundary-defying stories of all stripes—and these acclaimed authors are proof of just that.
Pumpkinheads is Eisner Award-winning illustrator Faith Erin Hicks' latest work with author Rainbow Rowell, and tells the tender and hilarious story about two irresistible teens discovering what it means to leave behind a place—and a person—with no regrets. Sean Harris Oliver’s Redpatch confronts the horrors of WWI, as a young Métis soldier travels from Canada to French battlefields. Festival favourite Mariko Tamaki (Laura Dean Keeps Breaking Up With Me) captures high school heartbreak as a toxic relationship spirals out of control. These storytellers take you behind their panels, sharing their tips and tricks for creating stunning comics and composing harmony across multiple mediums.
Suitable for grades 8-12 and adults.
