Heinberg, Vaughan, Grayson and Waid Featured at West Hollywood Book Fair
posted September 14th, 2006
[Print-ready Version]

This Sunday, September 17, the fifth annual West Hollywood Book Fair features the panel "Pulp Grind Manifesto: Writing the Monthly Comic Book."

The panel is the first comic book writers panel to be part of the popular West Hollywood Book Fair and will be held at the Comics/Sci-Fi Pavilion located at 647 N San Vicente Blvd., West Hollywood, CA 90069. The time is from 1:30 to 2:30 PM.

Panelists are entirely LGBT and LGBT-friendly: multiple-award winning Allan Heinberg (Wonder Woman, Young Avengers and TV hit Grey's Anatomy) another award-winner Brian K. Vaughan (Y: the Last Man, Ex Machina and the original graphic novel Pride of Baghdad,) female super-hero pioneer Devin Grayson (Nightwing, Batman: Gotham Nights, Matador and the novel DC Universe: Inheritance) and fan-favorite Mark Waid (52, Infinite Crisis, Supergirl and the Legion of Super-Heroes, John Doe and too many more monthly comics to list).

At 2:30 PM, after the panel, all four will be signing autographs and greeting fans at the Golden Apple booth. Organized by writer Joshua Dysart (Swamp Thing, Captain Gravity and the Power of Vril) the panel will be moderated by Christine Boylan (Superman Secret Files) and Roz Helfand (Book Fair organizer). Expected in this spirited discussion include such diverse topics as the relevance of comics in the broader cultural creative process, gender and sexual politics in the medium and the perceived aesthetic mandates of the so-called comic book mainstream. Its unique approach will have each discussion topic distilled into a single manifesto statement which must be agreed upon by all four of these very different writers!

Dysart commented to Prism, "With such a diverse group of writers, all of them queer or queer-friendly, it's obvious to expect sexuality and the place of queer creators and themes in comics to be part of the discussion. We hope the L.A. LGBT comics community will be there to support this new and exciting event."
