From the beginning the Occupy Wall St. movement has used and been informed by comics and memes. From V for Vendetta masks to "We are the 99%" tumblr. These images and slogans tell stories that relate what the movement is about. Storytelling has always been central to the work of organizers and movement builders. Narrative is the lens through which humans process the information we encounter Occupy Comix uses Comic books as a medium to express the stories of the 99% to shift the popular narrative to the side of justice. This panel will be a mix of artist and writers of Occupy comix and World War 3 Illustrated sharing how they are doing this through the medium of comics. They will also be showing how comics can rock your world.
