Graphic novel authors and educators discuss how kids' heroes have grown and changed over the years. Discussing "Hero" templates, they'll explore old and new hero favorites and whether a mold helps or hinders the development of future heroes. Panelists will then ask the audience to help create an SDCC 2014 hero as artist panelists draw/design/experiment with hero templates. Implications for fans, educators, students, and aspiring writers, and critics will be discussed. Panelist include Meryl Jaffe (Raising a Reader), Jennifer Holm (Babymouse, Squish), Matthew Holm (Babymouse, Squish),, Dave Roman (Astronaut Academy) , Frank Cammuso (The Misadventures of Salem Hyde), Ted Naifeh (Courtney Crumrin) , Marc Tyler Nobleman (Boys of Steel: The Creators of Superman, Bill the Boy Wonder), Royden Lepp (Rust), and Alexis Fajardo (Kid Beowulf).
