Comics might not contain music, but music can be a big part of comics. This panel discusses all the ways music intersects with comics – inspiration, background noise to help the writers, and as the subject of comics themselves.
This is another one of those panels I wish lasted longer. Here are some topics I wanted to bring up:
- Had Amy Chu heard of or read Hip Hop Family Tree by Ed Piskor and did it inform her musician-based comics.
- What they thought of the soundtrack that accompanies Kyle Higgins’ C.O.W.L.
- How the music writers felt about the parallels between the fact that despite only a few possible chord progressions we have so many creative songs and the fact that there are only like five story archetypes, but we still have such fabulous stories in comics.
