A literary collaboration that has encouraged and organized many salient programs over the years, Vis-a-Vis brings French and American authors together on both continents to discover and discuss what separates and binds together our arts and letters communities. Now the 2014 edition brings these storied stories together for a proper love affair between authors and artists of the comics and illustrated-novel craze exploding in both countries. From TinTin to Persepolis, from Tank Girl to Snowpiercer, not only are the books themselves being translated and collected trans-Atlantic, but also fancy studio productions for cinema and television, especially animated ones, are deepening and furthering the exchange even more. Join the French Consulate and the Nerdist ambassadors for a full afternoon of panels, presentations, demos and new releases covering the history, promise and challenges of this lively cross-cultural exchange. Meltdown Comics, 7522 Sunset Blvd., Hlywd.; Sun., Nov. 9, 2 p.m.; free. (323) 851-7223, holdmyticket.com/event/185921.
