ComicFest 2022: Storytelling with Jonathan King

Now that the dust has settled on ComicFest 2022, we can settle back and reflect on what was a fabulous, immersive and truly memorable online celebration of all thing’s comics in New Zealand. What a blast the day was!

If you missed any of the day, or indeed just want to enjoy watching something again, have no fear! We have seven of the segments from the day available to re-watch at any time you wish, simply follow this link to our YouTube playlist.

And now, we have a masterclass in storytelling from an artist and director who knows a thing or two about the art of storytelling, Jonathan King. In short, this session was gold dust for anyone interested in creating immersive and engaging stories from this award-winning graphic artist and internationally renowned film director unmissable. Jonathan King, until very recently, was best known as the acclaimed film director of films such as the hugely successful dark horror comedy Black Sheep and the remake of the NZ classic film Under the Mountain. He went on to release his first ever graphic novel in 2020 – The Inkberg Enigma. Aimed at children eight and up, it’s hugely enjoyable for adults too.
