The event (joint presentation) runs between 2 - 3 pm led by UK Comics Laureate Charlie Adlard and Dr Natasa Lackovic - Lancaster University's Co-Director of ReOPeN, Lancaster's graphic novels and comics research, outreach and pedagogy network.

Launched earlier this year, ReOPeN aims to brings together scholars working in different disciplines and any interested party with a shared interest in comics, graphic novels and illustrated books.

The aim of this event is to bring together all the above groups to network and get connected with Lancaster University and LICAF towards future collaborative initiatives and projects. A "Comic Power" e-mailing list and a dedicated space or page on Reopen's web site will be created after the event with all the provided contact details. This is to maintain the group and ignite future developments around graphic novels and comics.
