2017 Queers & Comics Confabulousness

Queers & Comics logoBristles and tats and l’il felt tips, people: The 2017 Queers & Comics Conference is upon us! It’s in San Francisco this time (last one was 2015 in NYC) on Friday and Saturday, April 14-15. Queer comics superstars Gengoroh Tagame and Mariko Tamaki are conference keynote speakers…as if the mere notion of such a conglomeration was not enuf!

I will be there too–appearing on (in? at?) A Life in Panels: Queer Women Memoir on Saturday at 4:30-6 PM with immoderate moderator/doggie drawer Nicole Georges, and a pack of other graphic self-revealers, including Becky Hawkins, Leanne Franson, Sophie Yanow, and Khale McHurst. I will also be signing books on Saturday, April 15, from 12-1 PM.

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.

Tuesday, March 8, 2016, 7 PM.

Talk at NEIU with Phoebe Gloeckner, Nicole Georges

Pixo3 Phoebe

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.
