The Comics Grid Webinar Series offers 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 previous webinars of the series, here.
