In an exciting panel moderated by seasoned editor Joseph Illidge, comic book creators, Vita Ayala (Livewire), Robin Ha (Almost American Girl), and Khary Randolph (Excellence, Black) discuss using the language and format of the graphic novel to tell diverse stories related to culture, sexuality, and race, and also feature protagonists who transform our idea of the traditional comic book hero.
They will also expand on how the amazing growth across media has created more opportunities for recognition and representation of diverse storytellers, and why comic books are at the center of this evolution.
