On Saturday, February 20, Prism will also present a panel on how LGBTQ comics creators lives have influenced their comics:

LGBTQ Comics: Drawn From Life

Saturday, February 20 – 5 to 6 pm – Rumble Room, S4B

Whether creating comic stories of total fiction or autobiographic graphic novels, comics writers and artists draw on their backgrounds to create their works. This is especially true in LGBTQ comics.  Join Prism Comics and Moderator Tara Madison Avery (“Gooch”, “Anything That Loves”, Prism Comics Board Member) and a diverse group of LGBTQ creators as they explore the intersection of queer life and comics – how creators’ upbringings, family lives, religions, relationships and orientations influence and define their works. Panelists will include Gillian Cameron (“Calogrenant”), P. Kristen Enos (“Web of Lives”), William O. Tyler (“Ratboy”), Sonya Saturday (“Death’s Door”), Steve MacIsaac (“Shirtlifter”), and Josh Trujillo (“Love Machines”, “Death Saves”).

“We would Iike to thank Long Beach Comic Expo (and their Fall sister show Long Beach Comic Con) for their long-time support of diversity and the LGBTQ comics community.” said Prism Comic President, Ted Abenheim.  “We are pleased and honored to have been part of Long Beach Comic Con since the beginning many years ago.  The Long Beach Comic Con and Expo have grown into exciting shows, and we hope you’ll attend and visit Prism there.”

Tickets are required for the Con and the panel.  For more information please visit:
