Who's going to ECCC this year? Be sure to stop by my table in Artist Alley, F-04, and say "hello"!
It's my first time attending, and I'll be doing several Steven Universe and the Crystal Gems signings with BOOM! Studios and a few panels. Super excited!
Be Your Own Superhero: Intersectional Feminism in Comics
Ms. Marvel and Bitch Planet are blowing up the world of comics; but being a good feminist isn’t just about getting as many female-led titles on the shelf as possible (though that doesn’t hurt). Representation matters to everyone, and diversity of all kinds both behind and on the page makes a huge difference in the stories we read and the ideas we internalize. Join our panel of comic pros to chat about all the different strides we’ve made in representation of race, gender, and sexuality in comics – and how we can strive to do better.
With Jody Houser, Irene Koh, Kristafer Anka, Fionna Adams, Amy Chu, and Chrystin Garland.

The Women of Tumblr
4:00 - 5:00pm
Tumblr is proud to be the home of a wide variety of content from an even wider variety of people. In this panel, we'll be focusing specifically on the women of the platform -- from artists to curators to your friendly neighborhood staff, join us in our exploration of what sisterhood means on Tumblr and how these talented ladies are shaping your dashboard in their own unique ways. What's it mean to be a fangirl? Let's discuss the female experience through reblogs!
If you're in town, I hope you can make it! :D
