Here's the video for the New York Comic Con panel on Our Gods Wear Spandex. Again, I was so stunned by the standing-room only crowd that it took me a while to become fully coherent. But I think I recovered well during the first question by the estimable A. David Lewis.
Here's the full spiel:
Panel at New York Comic Con on April 19, 2008 on the topic of Christopher Knowles' book Our Gods Wear Spandex: The Secret History of Comic Book Heroes. Moderated by A. Davis Lewis, panelists include Christopher Knowles, Testament creator Douglas Rushkoff, Cairo author G. Willow Wilson, Virgin Comics writer Saurav Mohapatra and DC Comics legend Denny O'Neil. Panel discusses the archetypes of comic book superheroes, their function in modern culture and the future of the genre. Questions are also taken from the audience.That's the mighty Kean making a cameo towards the beginning of the presentation.
Programming note: I'll be at the Pittsburgh Comic Con over the weekend and will leave the comments open while I'm away. Posting will carry on as normal (thanks to Blogger in Draft!) so y'all come on back now, y'hear?
