From East to West: the Superheroes of Japan & America
Hosted by Sam Kusek
While they are most well known for effecting a child's Saturday morning, superheroes have always played a larger role in culture than they are credited for. They represent the cultural identity, changing their values, methods and even appearances to fit the times. From East to West is a panel look at the heroes of the past, present & future, in both Japan and America, and analyzes the purpose of characters of well known franchises, as well as their cross cultural influences, appeal and more. Hosted by Sam Kusek (A Life in Panels), Ken Haley (Sequential Ink), and Michael Ferreira (Anime Dream).
