10:30-11:30 The Graphic Novel Explosion— Up until the last few years, graphic novels were published primarily by specialty houses that produced only comics and related works. Now, however, traditional mainstream publishing houses are producing graphic novels and even setting up graphic novel divisions, spurred by bookstore sales trends, library demand, and critical recognition. What has led to this trend? What sorts of books are these publishers looking for? Who is the audience? What role has manga played? And is the graphic novel market going to continue to expand, or will the bubble burst? Panelists include Charles Kochman, senior editor, Harry N. Abrams; David Saylor, creative director, Scholastic/Graphix; Karen Berger, executive editor, Vertigo/Minx/DC; Mark Siegel, senior editor, First Second; Dallas Middaugh, associate publisher, Del Rey Manga; Chris Schluep, editor, Ballantine/Del Rey/Villard; and Calvin Reid, news editor, Publisher’s Weekly, and co-editor, PW Comics Weekly. Moderated by Jackie Estrada,
Eisner Awards administrator and consultant to Foreword magazine’s Comique graphic novel supplement. Room 8 Categories: Anime & Manga Comic Books

10:30-12:00 Comics Arts Conference Session #13: Cultural Continuity— Anne Hoyer (German Society of Research on Comics) traces the decline of Scots-specific features in Oor Wullie, a Scottish newspaper strip published since 1936 whose protagonist was voted Scottish icon of the year in 2004, and the increasing Englishness of the strip. Kristy Boney (Ohio State University) explores how many modern comics such as Bill Willingham’s Fables, and Ted Naifeh’s Courtney Crumrin take their cue from the Friedrich Schlegel and the Brothers Grimm and discusses the extent to which they stay faithful to the Volksmärchen (folk tradition) or follow the Kunstmärchen (artistic tradition) and become more subversive, expanding the collective folk tradition. Kotaro Nakagaki (Tokiwa University, Japan) reexamines the cross-fertilization of Japanese manga and American popular culture and analyzes cultural identity and globalization within the global market context of American and Japanese circulation.

11:30-1:00 Comics Are Not Literature— For years, comics have presented themselves as a new kind of literature—but cartooning isn't prose, and graphic novels aren't novels. What if conflating comics with "literary" storytelling is a terrible mistake? Douglas Wolk (Reading Comics) moderates what should be a contentious discussion with
Cecil Castellucci (The PLAIN Janes), Dan Nadel (PictureBox Inc.), Austin Grossman (Soon I Will Be Invincible), Paul Tobin (Spider-Man Family), and Sara Ryan (The Rules for Hearts). Room 8 Categories: Comic Books Comic-Con Special Guest Spotlights & Appearances

12:00-1:00 Comics Arts Conference Session #14: Wolf Gal and the Feral Women of Li’l Abner— Cartoonist and historian Trina Robbins (From Girls to Grrrlz) presents a slideshow talk on the feral girls—Pig Girl, Hawk Girl, and Wolf Gal—of Li’l Abner’s Dogpatch, a bloodthirsty lot with no compunction about turning Dogpatchers into dinner. Wolf Gal, the starring wild girl of Dogpatch, is strong, beautiful, independent, and—don’t laugh—a feminist. When the little girls of Dogpatch imitate Wolf Gal by taking no guff from the boys, the citizens of Dogpatch react. They want their daughters to grow up as "overworked, wore-out, respectable married drudges," not "wild an' happy an'f ree, like th' wolf gal!!" Robbins connects these cartoon wild women with mythical feral children and more contemporary figures like Misha Defonseca, a Jewish orphan during World War II, who hid from the Nazis in the forests of occupied Europe for four years and eventually teamed up with a family of wolves. Recounting her experiences years later, she wrote, "the only time I ever slept deeply was when I was with wolves... Those were the most beautiful days I had ever experienced." Room 30AB Categories:

1:00-2:30 Comics Arts Conference Session #15: What’s the Big Idea?— Alex Boney (Ohio State University) examines the origins of the absurdist “Godot Effect” of unchanging stasis without resolution as a necessary trope in the superhero genre and explores the darker undertones of tragedy that emerge from characters perpetually trapped in this state of arrested development. Clare Pitkethly (La Trobe University, Australia) lays out the dual vision of America as utopia and dystopia presented in Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman comic books and, treating them as post-colonial literature, examines the association between imperial ideology and post-colonial utopianism in the American imagination. Chuck Huber (UC—Santa Barbara) compares images of ultimate evil in Jack Kirby's "Fourth World" mythos and J. R. R. Tolkien's "Middle Earth" mythos that suggests that both authors saw free will at the core of humanity and located ultimate evil in the domination and subjugation of the will of others as symbolized by Kirby in the "Anti- Life Equation" and Tolkien in the One Ring of Sauron.

2:30-3:30 Comics Arts Conference Session #16: The Culture of Popular Things: Ethnographic Examinations of Comic-Con 2007— Comic-Con offers students of popular culture an amazing venue to study how culture is marketed to and practiced by its fans.

Smith (Wittenberg University) provided a framework, guidance, and transitions among the participants, and readings on popular culture and ethnographic methods as well as a number of on-site lectures and discussions. Students extended the analysis of Matthew Pustz (Endicott College) in Comic Book Culture: Fan Boys and True Believers (2000), which examined aspects of fan culture but did not include on-site analysis of cons. The students were encouraged to explore the intersection of fan practice (e.g., costuming) at the nexus of cultural marketing (e.g., the exhibit hall sales booths) and were free to select a number of aspects of fan culture to examine. Pustz himself serves as respondent on the panel. Students include Nicholas Langley (Henderson State University), Melissa Andrada (University of Washington), Cameron Catalfu (Wittenberg University), W. Stephen Combs (Wittenberg University), Pamela Geranios (Wittenberg University), Julia “Kit” Moran (Wittenberg University), and Karen Stover (Wittenberg University). Room 30AB Categories:

Here is the lineup
