HeroesCon 2013 Mega Music Panel: On the Intersection(s) of Comics and Music

Comics and music share a lot of affinities-both depend heavily on rhythm and intervals,and many cartoonists are also musicians-and cartoonist Ben Towle and blogger Craig Fischer have organized a diverse smorgasbord of a panel to explore these affinities. Ben will discuss the many ways cartoonists represent music visually, and will chair a wide-ranging panel on comics and music with Peter Bagge (Hate, Yeah!), Ed Piskor (Hip Hop Family Tree), Andrew Robinson and Vivek J Tiwary (The Fifth Beatle). Craig will talk about the work of Marc Weidenbaum, an editor, teacher, and musician who's been combining comics and music in his creative projects for over two decades. And Charlotte, NC avant-duo Ghost Trees (Brent Bagwell on saxophone, Seth Nanaa on drums) will participate in two live comics/music performances, including a soundtrack for Joe Lambert's "Turtle Keep it Steady," a rock-n-roll retelling of the Tortoise-Hare fable!
