Comics creators working in the genre of horror, thrillers, and suspense discuss how their books tackle real world issues like racism, xenophobia, and otherism. Subjects include how creators telegraph topics, how satire can revitalize tropes, why these genres are so perfect for examining sensitive issues, why the time is right to tackle these problems through graphic literature, and how you can use these books to have productive conversations in your branch through bookclubs, lectures, and more.
