Comics Are Great! Wednesday with Brianne Drouhard and Dan Mishkin
This Wednesday at 12:30 pm we hope you'll join us for the live Comics Are Great! show, produced in the AADL Netcast Studio!
We will be joined by Brianne Drouhard, storyboard artist, character designer, and animator whose credits include Teen Titans, Transformers: Animated, and Batman: The Brave and the Bold. Also on the roundtable we'll have Dan Mishkin, co-creator of Blue Devil and Amethyst, Princess of Gemworld.
Together we'll tackle the topic of writing adventure fiction for girls. What are the special considerations one must face when creating an action-oriented story for girls? Is it important to refer to current styles and technology, or does that make your story less "timeless"? How is writing adventure fiction for girls different than writing the same for boys? Or are they essentially the same?
You can join us in the chat live at Comicsaregreat.tv, participate via the #comicsaregreat Twitter hashtag, or by posting some comments here. What are some of your favorite adventure stories made for girls? What, if anything, made them different from similar stories made for boys?
