The Anatomy of Storytelling with Kyle Charles

12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Kyle Charles will take you through the foundational elements of visual narrative and the utilization of information in sequential imagery

Her Infernal Descent

A tale of loss told in five parts. 

Any good mom would march through the inferno of HELL to get her family back. Unable to cope with the burden of grief, a middle-aged mother descends the nine circles of hell to retrieve her forsaken family. Guided by the ghosts of William Blake and Agatha Christie, this no-nonsense matriarch journeys deep into a bizarre underworld filled with celebrity sinners, surreal landscapes and absurd tasks.

From Lonnie Nadler and Zac Thompson, the writers of the break-out hit The Dregs and Cable, and Kyle Charles, the artist of Roche Limit, comes a journey through hell unlike anything you’ve experienced before.
