Jean Dufaux and Walter Simonson 

Whether you’re putting out a serial comic book or a one-shot graphic novel, it’s essential to captivate readers from the start–and make them hold their breath till the end. But just how do you do that? Two legendary creators, Walter Simonson and Jean Dufaux, an American and a European, give insight into the art of writing for comics and how these techniques may differ in Europe and the USA. Moderated by Calvin Reid (Publishers Weekly).
