Women of Color in Comics: Race, Gender & The Comic Book Medium
Friday, October 10th
1:15pm - 2:00pm
Diversity. Women in Comics. Both subjects are hot button topics in the comic book industry. However, it isn’t often that both issues collide. This Panel includes Creators and Artists that are not only women, but women of color working in Multimedia industries. Host Regine L. Sawyer, (Owner of Lockett Down Productions), will lead a discussion touching on issues like gender/ethnic representation in comics, the ‘CON-sent’ movement and how they are currently influencing the industry as a whole.

The list of featured Panelists are: Artist Alitha E. Martinez, Webseries Creator Vanessa Verduga, Blogger Jamila Rowser, Aritst Alice Meichi Li, Comic Book Creator Juliana ‘Jewels’ Smith, Renowned Comic Strip Creator Barbara Brandon-Croft, and Famed Cosplayer Geisha Vi.
