Chapter One Stage
Comics have always inspired movies. Though Superhero characters such as Captain America, Batman, and The Fantastic Four have traditionally dominated the silver screen, a more literary trend is now evolving. Producers and directors have discovered new ways of telling stories. In this panel, leading international comic artists Marguerite Abouet (Aya of Yop City), David Etien (The Baker Street Four), and publishers Olivier Jalabart (Glénat) from France and Robert Ballantyne (Arsenal Pulp Press) from America discuss how graphic novels can offer new inspiration to the cinema - from very intimate stories (like Blue is the Warmest Color) to major sci-fi movies (Valerian) and animated features (Aya of Yop City). Moderated by Matt Madden (Drawn Onward). Free signed prints and books for purchase at stage following panel! Signing will continue after end of session at Booth #1229
