Tintin, Tom of Finland and Beyond: How I Came to Comics through Alt Masculinity and Bad Sex

Didja know I used to do a zine in which characters regularly appeared without trousers? I will be giving a talk on the angry 1990s sex rant that was negativa and the influence on my work of alternative comics and zines such as Love & Rockets, Eightball, Tom of Finland, G.B. Jones, Straight to Hell and more.

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).
