I’ll be part of a panel discussing ‘The Power of Superheroes‘ at the Galway International Arts Festival, at 4pm on 22 July in the O’Donoghue Theatre in NUIG. My fellow panellists are Barry W Fitzgerald, Author of Secrets of Superhero Science and Comic Artists and Declan Shalvey, an acclaimed comic book artist for Marvel comics (and other publishers). Our moderator is Theatre Producer Jen Coppinger. We’re part of the First Thoughts track of talks at the GIAF, which also includes the fantastic cartooning legend Tom Tomorrow. His talk, Cartoon Power, is on earlier on the same day, so it’s a terrific twofer for anyone interested in sequential art.
