They call it a "Comic Book Death" when a major fictional character is killed off, but the audience doesn't believe they will stay dead. Does it damage stories when their heroes and villains refuse to remain in the grave? How emotionally invested can an audience be when big consequences are easily reversed? Bestselling horror/fantasy author Mira Grant (aka Seanan McGuire), comic creator and former Marvel/IDW editor Andy Schmidt, screenwriter, novelist, and comic creator Paul Cornell, Sharknado director Anthony Ferrante, and Hugo-Award winning novelist Mary Robinette Kowal, discuss the ramifications of resurrection with moderator Adron Buske (Nerd for a Living podcast).
