S.M.A.S.H. 4 / Recordings / Genre

Speakers: Hannah Berry, Hattie Earle, Jade Sarson and Simon Spurrier

Which genres work best in comics and which work worst? Why? Is genre a useful way to think about comics or are they just a crutch for bad storytellers and bad audiences? Are the best comics those which exist beyond genre? Is genre only interesting when it’s being deconstructed? What would it mean for a comic to be beyond genre? Is realism just another genre? Is there any more deconstructing of genre left to do?

Recorded in the Barbican Frobisher Rooms on Saturday the 26th of November 2016
