New York Comic Con – Oct. 10


New York Comic Con 2015

Prism Comics Presents: Autobiography in Queer Comics

Sat. October 10| 1:30 PM – 2:30 PM | Room 1A01

The autobiography genre has been a staple of indie comics for decades. Some of the best examples of the form are the work of LGBT creators who have used this platform to share stories about their often misunderstood subcultures. Join Moderator Tara Madison Avery (Gooch) and Panelists Morgan Boecher (What’s Normal Anyway?), Sina Grace (Self-Obsessed), L. Nichols (Flocks), Carlo Quispe (Uranus), AK Summers (Pregnant Butch) and Ariel Schrag (Likewise) for a lively discussion about comics that are true to queer life!

Brooklyn Book Festival – Sept. 20

Hey, NYC people: I will be at the Brooklyn Book Festival, Sept. 20, 2:00 PM, Brooklyn Historical Society Auditorium, 28 Pierrepont St.

The event is a panel called Can’t You See Who I Am? at which three comic creators talk about their new books, that explore identity, place, and finding your purpose in the city. Join A.K. Summers, author and artist of Pregnant Butch, about her adventures in motherhood; Julian Voloj with his comic biography Ghetto Brother on Benjy Melendez, and the events of gangland New York in the 1970s, and Lisa Wilde, NYC high school teacher whose collected memoir zine Yo, Miss, follows her and her diverse students as they struggle and celebrate over a single academic year. Moderated by Jessica Abel, (Out on a Wire: The Storytelling Secrets of the New Masters of Radio).


Wotta night at NEIU

This is kinda late for me to be posting this but…TONIGHT I’m on a panel with Phoebe Gloeckner and Nicole Georges at Northeastern Illinois University, moderated by real-deal, I’m-not-making-this-up, Professional Comics Scholar, Professor Hillary Chute! This should be a great big wide-open vat of a talk. Thrills ‘n spills with nibbage to spare! Open, as it should be, to the comics-concerned public.
