Schedule Panel

From East to West: the superheroes of America and Japan
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.
