SAY HELLO TO OUR LATEST FEATURE: PRISM SPOTLIGHTS!
There is simply a crazy amount of insanely talented LGBTQAI comics creators in this industry, and we have rather ambitious plans to interview each and every one of them over time in our latest feature to the Prism Comics website. First up, Prism’s Queer Press Grant chair Jon Macy talks to two recent QPG recipients: 2013 recipient Hazel Newlevant and this year’s recipient Dave Davenport. Are you an LGBTQAI creator with an exciting new project to discuss? We may want to spotlight you next! Or maybe you have a favorite creator you’re dying to learn more about. Send us a message on our CONTACT PAGE, and give us some details. We look forward to hearing from you!
This year’s recipient of the Prism Comics Queer Press Grant is Dave Davenport. Dave, who is developing his graphic novel Stray Bullet, recounts the adventures of Feral and the Ghost Skater, a werewolf and a spectral skate punk who have strange adventures in the queerer regions of the supernatural.
Hazel Newlevant is a cartoonist who grew up in Portland, Oregon and attended the School of Visual Arts.
She’s the creator and publisher of many comics, including the Xeric Award-winning CiVediamo. She has worked for Top Shelf and Dark Horse Comics, and is the co-lead editor of the digital comics magazine INK.
