JD Glass and Kris Dresen Appearing at the Prism Comics Booth and Panel This Weekend at New York Comic-Con!
posted October 9th, 2011
[Print-ready Version]

New York, NY - Eisner nominee Kris Dresen and Lambda Literary Award Finalist JD Glass will appear both at the Prism Comics booth (#1058) and at the panel, XX: The Women in Queer Comics, this weekend at New York Comic-Con, October 13-16. Glass’ new title—CORE—which premiered at the 2011 San Diego Comic-Con—is a bold marrying of prose and graphics, while Dresen’s gone—launching in New York Comic Con—introduces the first book-length use of Dresen’s lush pencil work. Both books are from the new publishing imprint, Outlines Press.

"I am really excited about this,” says Glass. “We’re taking stories and worlds, bringing them to life in new ways.” Adds Dresen, “This work really pushes the boundaries in terms of storytelling and visuals.”

Dresen and Glass will be available all weekend to sign copies of gone and CORE at the Prism Comics Booth, #1058.

The panel, XX: The Women in Queer Comics, takes place on Friday, October 14th, from 7:45-8:45pm. LGBT women and their straight allies are a force to be reckoned with in the comics world. JD Glass (CORE) moderates a dynamic panel exploring the specific challenges they face in the traditional comics world and the changing digital landscape, as well as the unique perspectives, storytelling aesthetics, and sense of community they bring to the table. Explore the past, present, and future of women in queer comics with Paige Braddock (Jane’s World), Jennifer Camper (Rude Girls and Dangerous Women), Joan Hilty (Bitter Girl), Kris Dresen (She’s In The Trees), Abby Denson (High School Confidential), and Erica Friedman (Yuricon & ALC Publishing).

Outlines, the publishing venture, will feature work by Lambda Literary Finalist Glass and Eisner Nominee Kris Dresen as well as Golden Crown Finalist Susan Smith, plus Lambda Lit Winner Georgia Beers, Andi Marquette, and Susan X Meagher. Projects include complete single books and serialized stories, as well as anthologies. The Outlines Press website is www.outlinespress.com.

Prism Comics, of which JD Glass is a board member, s a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that promotes LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) creators, characters, themes and readers in the comic book field.
