A panel discussion was held on the changes made to access to information by a market-driven digital technology. They discussed the thesis that wider visual representation would lead younger readers into literacy and the definition of literacy in a visual and technological age. They focused on the place of comics and graphic novels in the digital realm. The panelists also responded to questions from members of the audience.

The authors were: John Jennings (moderator), Black Comix: African American Independent Comics, Art and Culture (Mark Batty Publisher/Random); Damian Duffy, Out of Sequence: Underrepresented Voices in American Comics (Krannert Art Museum); Dawud Anyabwile, Brotherman; Alex Simmons,

Blackjack; Gregory Walker, ZM1; and L.A. Banks, Vampire Huntress.
