Patrick Jagoda (University of Chicago) considers the implications that comingling of comics and digital games might have for the future of transmedia storytelling in what Henry Jenkins has called our contemporary "convergence culture." Hillary Chute (University of Chicago) examines how recent adaptations of independent comics provoke and stage conversations among forms from film to live performance. Liam Burke (Huston School of Film & Digital Media) explores the impact the unprecedented period of modern comic book film adaptation has had on mainstream American comic books, from diminishing the specificity of their form to publishers making comics more amenable to film adaptation. Henry Jenkins (University of Southern California) responds.
