Female Comics Experts and Pros to Host “Men In Comics” Panel at This Month’s Indy PopCon
"More men are making comics than ever before. But not all men!"
We at The Mary Sue were none too happy when we heard about the all-male “Women in Comics” panel at this year’s Denver Comic Con. Apparently, we weren’t the only ones. Racebending.com’s Gabrial Canada sees how underrepresented women are in all aspects of geek culture and decided to respond to that Denver Comic Con panel by creating this “Men in Comics” panel featuring all women at this month’s Indy PopCon in Indianapolis.
Here’s the official description from PopCon:
We’ve gathered a panel of fabulous women to talk about MEN IN COMICS! More men are making comics than ever before. But not all men! Some don’t even WANT to. How do we create opportunities for them?
We’ll have a lively discussion featuring…
Christina Blanch, Ball State University instructor and doctoral assistant, most popularly known for teaching the SuperMOOC “Gender through Comic Books”
Jackie Crofts, co-creator of the comic Nutmeg
Ginger Dee, co-creator of comics The Brothers Grant, Dexter’s Digs, and Presidents of the United Space and co-organizer of the Indy Webcomics Group
Bri Rudd, creator of the comic Oh No Bri and contributor to Geeking in Indiana and Panels
Katie Schenkel, contributor to The Mary Sue, Panels, and Quirk Books
Moderated by the mighty model/writer/artist powerhouse Taversia!
Masterminded by the brilliant Gabrial Canada of Racebending.com.
And why yes, it does feature TMS’ Katie Schenkel! If you want to discuss men in comics with a bunch of women who know what they’re talking about, check out this awesome panel on Sunday, June 28th, at 2PM. And if you do attend, let us know what you think!
