Saturday, November 19, 2016 @ 10:30 am
300 NE Second Ave., Miami, Fl 33132 United States
Masters of short-form comics, narrative illustration, and webcomics discuss the world of writing small and thinking big. Leela Corman (We all Wish For Deadly Force), Drew Weing (Creepy Casefiles of Margo Maloo) and Frank Viva (Sea Change) discuss. Moderated by Jessica Abel (Trish Trash, Artbabe).
We all Wish for Deadly Force is a collection of short stories by Leela Corman, including devastating personal loss, teaching bellydancing classes, her family in World War II Poland, reports from an American bellydancer about life in post revolution Egypt, and more. In Frank Viva’s graphic novel for children, Sea Change, a young boy is sent to a remote fishing village in Nova Scotia for a summer, and finds that the place he never wanted to visit is fast becoming a home. In Drew Weing’s graphic novel for children, The Creepy Case Files of Margo Maloo, a boy named Charlie relies on a monster mediator to negotiate peace with the monsters who break into his room, steal his toys, and occasionally try to eat him.
