Hey folks! A quick little update to let you all know that from 12th to 14th of July I’ll be in Belgium to give a paper at the Comics Strike Back conference being held at Ghent University. The conference is focused on digital comics but I’m actually there to talk about something slightly digital-adjacent – approaches to applying digital comic techniques and practices within print comic formats. Or as my paper’s actual title has it: “From Digital Display to Printed Page – An Exploration of the Use of Digital Comic Adaptations and Hybridisations in Print Comic formats.”
As part of my research on the topic I’ve been busy making some new print comics and I plan to have the first of these with me at the conference. So if you’d like to get your hands on a copy of You Are Not A Sandwich And Yet You Are The Sandwich, then make sure to come say hello during the conference. If you can’t make it to Ghent in person but would still like to take part in the conference then good news – the whole thing is also going to be streamed for free via Zoom. For anyone interested in attending via Zoom, send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and they’ll get you registered and sort you out with a Zoom link.
