  • CAT EYE: POINT OF VIEW AND COMICS (Saturday, October 5th, 9:00pm-10:00pm, Room 1B03)

Who’s telling the story? Every word and every image in every comic reinforces a particular POV. From the classic editorial voice of Stan Lee to the confessional memoirs of Alison Bechdel, comics occupy a unique space, reinforcing—panel-by-panel—a particular way of seeing. Why is POV so rarely discussed in relationship to comics? Join the creative team behind the Eisner-nominated comic book series MAN-EATERS to talk turkey and about they use POV to subvert expectations and troll the patriarchy. Trigger warning: Because this is a late night panel, there will be glow sticks. Panel members include NYT best-selling author Chelsea Cain (Mockingbird, Man-eaters, internationally best-selling thriller novelist), Lia Miternique (Man-eaters co-creator, cover artist), Eliza Fantastic Mohan (Man-eaters contributing writer), and Emily Powell (Man-eaters haiku writer-in-residence).
