License to Thrill: Graphic Novel Adaptations for Kids
Watch When Available!

YouTube: https://youtu.be/LrceWULlU-0

Sabaa Tahir (A Thief Among the Trees: An Ember in the Ashes Graphic Novel) is joined by James Otis Smith (Black Heroes of the Wild West), R. Sikoryak (Constitution Illustrated), and David Bowles (Rise of the Halfling King) in this discussion about graphic novel adaptations. Moderated by Adam Kullberg (Pop Culture Classroom) and sponsored by the CBC Graphic Novel Committee.

Participants
R. Sikoryak
Constitution Illustrated
Cartoonist R. Sikoryak is the author of Masterpiece Comics, Terms and Conditions, and The Unquotable Trump. He adapts the classics for various anthologies, including The Graphic Canon, Fable Comics, and more. His comics and illustrations have appeared in The New Yorker, The New York Times Book Review, The Nation, The Onion, MAD, and SpongeBob Comics, as well as on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. He's done storyboards and character designs for Augenblick Studios on various animated projects. Sikoryak teaches in the illustration department at Parsons The New School for Design and previously at The Center for Cartoon Studies. Since 1997, he's presented his live cartoon slide show series, Carousel, around the United States and Canada. He lives in New York City with his wife, Kriota Willberg. Constitution Illustrated is in stores next week!

Sabaa Tahir
A Thief Among the Tress: An Ember in the Ashes Graphic Novel
Sabaa Tahir is the author of the An Ember in the Ashes series. She grew up in California's Mojave Desert at her family's eighteen-room motel. There, she spent her time devouring fantasy novels, raiding her brother's comic book stash, and playing guitar badly. She began writing while working nights as a newspaper editor. She likes thunderous indie rock, garish socks and all things nerd. This is Sabaa's first graphic novel collaboration.

David Bowles
Rise of the Halfling King
David Bowles is an award-winning Mexican-American author and translator, as well as an associate professor of literature and Nahuatl at the University of Texas Río Grande Valley. He has written over 20 books, among them Feathered Serpent, Dark Heart of Sky: Myths of Mexico and Flower, Song, Dance: Aztec and Maya Poetry. September will see the release of his graphic novel Rise of the Halfling King, which Kirkus calls "an unmissable adventure of mythical proportions." Next spring, the first volume in his steampunk graphic novel series Clockwork Curandera will drop. David's work has also been published in multiple anthologies, plus venues such as School Library Journal, Apex, Strange Horizons, Rattle, Translation Review, and the Journal of Children's Literature. In 2017, David was inducted into the Texas Institute of Letters.

James Otis Smith
Black Heroes of the Wild West
James Otis Smith is illustrator of the graphic novel adaptation Showtime at the Apollo, by music writer Ted Fox. He studied writing and film before becoming a production artist for independent movies in New York. Years of growing up reading comics had taught him how to write with both words and pictures, which was good training to become a film and video editor. Missing the straightforward honesty of ink on paper, he eventually returned to his first love, comics. In addition to the Apollo Theater history, he drew the children's book adaptation of the fantasy novel Ancient Lands by Jason McCammon and the mature-readers cyberpunk Gang of Fools. As a childhood fan of old serials and the classic American aesthetic, he has long hoped to reclaim those stories lost in our oversimplified telling of our own history, and expand who and what we mean when we say America. Black Heroes of the Wild West (coming September 2020 from TOON Books) is his first book as both author and illustrator.

James Otis lives in the last apartment free of cats in Brooklyn, New York.

Hollyweird Science: Creativity, Correctness, and Collaboration
Watch When Available!

YouTube: https://youtu.be/DpVK5T0G5hI

In addition to a constructive examination of the depiction of science and scientists in TV and film, the Hollyweird Science books explore how onscreen depictions compare to real life: when it's right, when it's wrong, and when it's wrong for the right reasons. The books have also noted parallels in the careers of both working scientists and Hollywood storytellers: in both instances, few who begin the journey find successful careers, and both are very demanding and highly competitive. The common wisdom might be that the comparison ends there--that storytelling is highly creative, or "right-brained", while the life of the scientist is dominated by "left-brained" analytical thinking and reasoning. Our panelists of scientists and Hollywood creatives explore the thought processes, motivations, and inspirations that drive their own careers, and explore the idea that these careers that seem diametrically opposed superficially have much more in common than you might think, and that creativity and analytical thought are complementary, not end members of a spectrum. Featuring Ashley E. Miller (Lore, Black Sails), Nicole Perlman (Guardians of the Galaxy, Captain Marvel), Deric A. Hughes (Warehouse 13, The Flash), Helen Stringer (Spellbinder, Paradigm), Stephen Cass (senior editor, IEEE Spectrum), Jessica Cail, Ph.D. (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Zootopia), and Kevin Grazier, Ph.D. (Gravity, Escape Room 2).

UPDATED: Fri, Jul 24, 10:50PM
The debate has raged for years, and now the last few year's liveliest panel debate returns for another round: Is a 200-page comic story a graphic novel? Or is it a long comic book?
