Cost: Included with full conference registration.
The art of adapting classic literature into the manga, or Japanese comic format can be a daunting task as there are many aspects to consider. What are the hazards of putting the works of Austen, Twain, or Shakespeare into fully illustrated works? Do you change the words to reflect the original meanings in modern time? How important are elements such as costume, architecture, and character design? With the right art, and the best research they mean everything to the quality of a book. In this panel we will talk about the behind-the-scenes discussions, challenges and research that helps us find the right tone for each and every one of our Manga Classic titles. We will even reveal sneak preview art from our new fall titles and possibly, work for books in Spring of 2019!
