Thank you to everyone who attended this session and a special thanks to our panelists for taking the time to join us to discuss their work. Keep an eye out for more Comics Grid webinars soon. 

The Comics Grid Webinar Series offer an online opportunity to chat live with authors about their articles published recently in the journal. Each episode focuses on two articles whose potential thematic and/or methodological interconnections can be explored and contrasted in order to stimulate scholarly discussion, collective learning and further research.  You can watch the first webinar of the series, "Troubling Boundaries, Leaking Forms: Reading Bechdel's Fun Home and Carroll's Through the Woods with Dr Jeanette D'Arcy and Dr Miranda Corcoran" here.
