Saturday, October 13th, 2:45pm
Queer Cartoonists Panel — LGBT comics, with a storied history of over four decades, have never been more vibrant. A true renaissance of queer stories is taking place, as they begin to take their rightful place in the comics world and fans increasingly demand more material that speaks to them and represents the genuine diversity in which we all live. It’s all happening at the ninth annual APE Queer Cartoonists Panel, with talented, fabulous, and uppity panelists Tara Madison Avery (Dirtheads, Gooch), Tony Breed (Finn and Charlie Are Hitched), Dylan Edwards (Transposes), and Steve MacIsaac (Shirtlifter), with moderator Justin Hall. On top of all that, at the end of the panel the recipient of the Prism Comics Queer Press Grant 2012 will be announced.
There will also be two panels featuring the Hernandez Brothers: The first is on Saturday at 5:45pm – Spotlight on the Hernandez Brothers: 30 Years of Love and Rockets – and the second is on Sunday at 2:30pm – “Gigantes” Walk Among Us!.
APE is held at The Concourse, 635 8th Street, San Francisco, CA. For more information, go here.
