[Keynote] Of Culture and Comics

Fred Chao (Graphic Novelist)

Growing up, Fred Chao found comics an effective storytelling medium, with the visual motifs of a movie, but with the control of reading a book. Yet, something was missing. Even as a young boy, he wanted children’s comics to hit on more personal and sensitive topics. In this keynote, Fred will share how children’s comics can tell mature stories and let children in on cultural and social issues.
