UPDATED: Wed, Jul 13, 10:46AM
Diehard fans know comics aren't just picture books for children and geeky adults. Comics have a long history of addressing complex issues, from science lab accidents to ethics, moral issues, and social justice. This panel will look at the art, science, and technology featured in some of their favorite comics and answer questions like: How do writers develop the stories? Are they communicating realistic scientific concepts? Could comics writers be predicting in the future of science and technology? Join us as Chris Ryall (editor-in-chief at IDW), Chris Mowry (writer, Godzilla comics), Sarah Gaydos (group editor at IDW), Dean Kamen (entrepreneur and engineer), Matt Grob (EVP and CTO, Qualcomm), Dr. Ronald Coleman (researcher, The Scripps Research Institute) discuss the true science behind comics and science fiction.
