The Comics Press: a panel discussion
Admission: $5 | Free for MoCCA Members
MoCCA invite you to join us for a conversation about the comics press. What is the role of comic reportage today? What gets covered and why? Find out at this discussion with comics critics and reporters Heidi MacDonald, Aaron McQuade and Evie Nagy and Douglas Wolk and find out the answers.
Heidi MacDonald has edited award-winning comics for Disney, Warner Bros., and Fox. She is currently the editor and main writer for The Beat, a blog covering comics as they relate to pop culture. It was named one of the “100 Greatest Websites” by Entertainment Weekly.

In addition to writing about comics for Publishers Weekly and other publications, Evie is a music journalist and editor at Billboard Magazine; Aaron can be heard hourly as a radio news anchor and producer on Sirius XM.
