Saturday 3 March, 12pm-1pm   Al Baraha 3, InterContinental

Batman and Gotham, Ms Marvel and New Jersey, Black Panther and Wakanda – a big part of what defines a hero is the world they defend. Our panel of comics creators journey into the moody cities, ancient deserts and distant worlds of the heroes whose stories they tell in word and picture.

Zaid Adham and Yasser Alireza are the co-creators of Wayl, the story of a man who returns to his home city of Amman, Jordan only to find it in the grip of crime and corruption.

Nnedi Okorafor is writing Antar the Black Knight, a new comics series about pre-Islamic African-Arab legend Antar bin Shaddad; she also recently brought Black Panther and Venom to Lagos for Marvel Comics.

Gabriel Rodriguez is known for the creepy Keyhouse of Locke and Key; he is now working on the genre-bending Arthurian epic Sword of Ages.

This panel is moderated by Mohammed N Al Khan.
