Behind the Making of Better Things: The Life and Choices of Jeffrey Catherine Jones -A Tribute Documentary to an Inspiring Comic Book Artist and the Spirit of Creativity
Better Things is a documentary about Jeffrey Catherine Jones, an enigmatic comic book artist from the '70s. His entrance into the comic book art world paved the way for many of today's popular comic book artists to produce work that incorporate fine art influences. His fame did not guarantee a controversy-free reputation. In fact, his personal challenges have stood in the way of a more economically viable existence-in particular, the development of his transgender persona. Unlike most people who have undergone this dramatic and drastic change, Jones maintained a huge loyal following in his industry. The film follows the stories behind his success and it also showcases his artwork through interviews with his family and peers. Excerpts from the film will be shown, followed by a brief discussion with the cast and crew.

Sixty Years of Seduction: Right, Wrong, and Wertham
In his book Seduction of the Innocent, published 60 years ago, psychiatrist Fredric Wertham claimed that comic books were a leading cause of juvenile delinquency. Forever cast as a villain in the eyes of comic fandom, Wertham is, at worst, represented as an enemy of free speech and, at best, a misguided moral crusader. But is either characterization correct? Was Wertham right, wrong, or both? Do his mid-century hypotheses about media violence have any relevance today? And why are we still talking about him? Author Bradford W. Wright (Comic Book Nation) will offer an historical perspective of Wertham. Library and information science professor Carol Tilley (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign) will explore and critique Dr. Wertham's research methodology, while psychiatrists Vasilis K. Pozios, M.D. and Praveen R. Kambam, M.D. (Broadcast Thought) will discuss Wertham' s views on juvenile delinquency within the context of current media violence research. Professor Robert A. Emmons, Jr., director of the forthcoming documentary film Diagram for Delinquents, will share his insights in his effort to create a more complete picture of Wertham. Emmons will also discuss the zeitgeist of America during the crusade against comics as one of the first media backlashes in American history. Attorney Jeff Trexler (The Beat, The Comics Journal) moderates.

Why Not Serious? Comedy vs. Drama in Animation
Around the world, animation comes in all flavors. For kids, for adults. Comedies, dramas, romances, action-adventure. But in the United States, pretty much the only animated features you see are comedies, and fewer and fewer TV series are action-adventure. Craig Miller (Curious George, Beast Wars) leads a panel of writers, producers, and network execs, including Ted Biaselli (VP, programming & development, The Hub), Brian Hohlfeld (Transformers Rescue Bots, My Friends Tigger and Pooh), and James Krieg (Batman: The Brave and the Bold, Teen Titans Go!), who'll try to explain why that is and discuss if it will ever change.
