In the tapestry of human experience is the essence of myth. While life's common threads remind us of a shared heritage, our diverse backgrounds color these expressions. Thankfully, emerging technologies offer the chance to share perspectives and experiences. Moderator Sohaib Awan (CEO of Jabal Entertainment and creator of IDW Publishing's Jinrise) will lead a discussion centered on the challenges and potential stories global myths offer comic fans here and overseas. Joining Sohaib will be Chris Ryall (IDW Publishing's editor-in-chief and chief creative officer), Andrew Huerta (artist on IDW Publishing's Jinnrise), Tom Taylor (Creator of Gestalt Comics' The Deep and lead writer on DC Comics' Injustice), Alexis Kirsch (Editor of VIZ Media's Weekly Shonen Jump), Wolfgang Bylsma (Editor-in-Chief of Gestalt Comics) and Greg Broadmore (WETA Workshop Lead Concept Designer). Each attendee will receive a signed copy of IDW Publishing's Jinnrise and other items from our panelists' publishers.
