World building! Backstory! Writing! With Dave Roman, Brandon Dayton, and Paul Storrie.

What’s the difference between story and backsory? It’s a tricky question, so I was lucky to assemble a rather impressive roundtable of comics people to help sort this one out. Brandon Dayton, Dave Roman, and Paul Storrie all return to the show to help determine how to know what information belongs within and supports your story, and what information is world building material to inform the choices you make when constructing your story.

Sharon Iverson of the Ann Arbor District Library shows up later to share some more book recommendations and comics events happening in the Southeast Michigan area.
