Discover the history of comics and Greek mythology at this practical comic writing workshop! Classicists Dr Amanda Potter and Natalie Swain will briefly share the history of comics and Greek mythology, with superheroes as renewed versions of Greek heroes, focusing on Hercules and Wonder Woman. Laura Jenkinson-Brown, teacher, educator and creator of GreekMythComix.com and Hannah Sackett, researcher, writer and cartoonist, will then guide participants through creative exercises to create an original comic book character based on characters from Greek mythology, and finally a comic strip featuring their character.
