IDW Publishing's Antar: A Middle Eastern Legend for a Modern Age

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

With genre entertainment now embraced by all corners of the globe, comic books celebrate the best of common humanity. The history and legends of Antar, the half-African, half-Arab poet warrior, present a prime example of this, and his adventures have been enjoyed for centuries in the Middle East. Inspired by his life, Jabal Entertainment's CEO Sohaib Awan (Jinnrise) will discuss the cultural significance of the bridge-building comic with series writer Nnedi Okorafor (the Binti series), Michelle Nickelson (managing director, Mirage Studios), Jeff Gomez (CEO, Starlight Runner Entertainment), and Chris Ryall (chief creative officer, IDW Publishing).
