More To Life

Some have said that Egyptian hieroglyphics were the first comic strips. But it wasn't until the 1940s that the comic books we know today were created. Since then, they have been celebrated and vilified. But despite their stormy history, comic book reading is still going strong and helping Ontario kids get over that reading slump. Rob Walton, writer and comic book connoisseur, Sarah Young a feminist comic writer, and Daryl Collison, owner of the 3rd Quadrant Comics in Toronto, will be here to take your calls and teach us what we can learn from comics. This show contains a Planet Parent segment "Imaginary Play".
