Becky Cloonan and Nathan Fox on Comics

SI Flyer

Cloonan and Fox will discuss the secret behind creating successful comic stories, how to break into the field, what it is like to have a loyal following, how to make a successful cover, what it takes to draw a billion lines per panel, and how super heroes stay fit without ever going to the gym.

The lecture will also focus on the connection between illustration and comics, and drawing as the basis of two fields that attract very different audiences though they share a common language.
