Two New Comic-Con Museum@Home Panels
Comics & Tarot: The Art of Fortune and Fantasy •

Tarot and comic books have long been intertwined. Comics creators have designed some astounding and mythical tarot decks; and the mythos behind tarot has seeped into some of our favorite books. Markeia McCarty (The Nerdist) speaks with creators Becky Cloonan (The King’s Story), Trungles (The Magic Fish), and Abigail Larson (The Dreaming) about what went into creating their decks and what tarot means to them. If you're a fan of comics, tarot, art, or looking to create a deck of your own, this is a panel you don’t want to miss.
