This Monday, November 6th, there is a nifty discussion taking place at MoCCA (the Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art), 594 Broadway, Suite 401 at 6:30 PM.
Here’s MoCCA’s description of the event:
MoCCA Monday, November 6th – Adaptation
Moderated by David Saylor (director of Scholastic’s Graphix imprint), this panel explores the phenomenon of graphic novel adaptations. Creators Ernie Colon (The 9/11 Report), Tim Hamilton (Treasure Island), George O’Connor (Journey Into Mohawk Country), and R. Sikoryak (“Dostoyevsky Comics,” “Crypt of Bronte,” “Good Ol’ Gregor Brown,” and more for the anthologies Drawn & Quarterly, RAW, Hotwire), discuss what went into their personal projects as well as their thoughts on the value of adaptations.
