State Department webchat to focus on superheroes
by Kevin Melrose
Superheroes will move into the diplomatic spotlight Wednesday morning in a webchat hosted by the U.S. Department of State.
Called Superheroes@State, the live event will feature a discussion about comics and superheroes "as they relate to shared values in countries around the world," with Comic-Con International's David Glanzer joining Assistant Secretary of State for Educational and Cultural Affairs Evan Ryan in the CO.NX studio. Dr. Naif Al-Mutawa, creator of the Islamic superhero comic The 99, will participate remotely from Kuwait, while artist Dan Panosian will select his favorite submissions from an earlier contest.
