The i Word: The Rose City Comic Con Sessions, 1 of 2

Welcome to The i Word, the official podcast of Image Comics, hosted by David Brothers. In creator-owned comics, the creator is the real star, and the goal of the podcast is to not just talk comics with one creator at a time, but to give you a chance to see what influences them, too. This week, The i Word features audio from a panel David moderated at Rose City Comic Con 2016 in Portland, Oregon, named Image Comics: Comics In Your Image, on the subject of how popular comics today reflect the lives we lead. The panel features, in the order they're introduced, Leila del Duca, co-creator of Shutter, Brian Schirmer, co-creator of Black Jack Ketchum, Meredith McClaren, creator of Hinges, Jim Zub, co-creator of Wayward and Glitterbomb, and finally, Kurt Busiek and Benjamin Dewey, creators of The Autumnlands.

Image Comics: Comics In #YourImage: Kurt Busiek and Benjamin Dewey create THE AUTUMNLANDS. Brian Schirmer co-creates BLACK JACK KETCHUM. Jim Zub writes GLITTERBOMB and WAYWARD. Meredith McClaren masterminds HINGES. Leila del Duca co-creates SHUTTER. We can create the comics industry we want to see by checking out the books that are out-there, fascinating, or just plain ol' emotionally resonant. What's the next big thing in comics? Whatever you want it to be.
