Prism Comics Makes a Big Splash at New York Comic-Con October 13-16!
posted October 10th, 2011
[Print-ready Version]

New York, NY – Prism Comics, the premier nonprofit supporting LGBT comics, will be "Queer Central" for both creators and fans at New York Comic-Con from October 13-16! Prism's double booth #1058 will host signings with top LGBT comic book creators all weekend. Prism is also proudly hosting the panel, XX: The Women in Queer Comics, moderated by Jennifer Camper1 and featuring Paige Braddock, Jennifer Camper, Joan Hilty, Abby Denson, Kris Dresen and Erica Friedman.

"We're excited to provide a home for the 'barbarian' hordes of LGBT fans in the New York area" says David Stanley, Prism’s PR Chair. "We'll be the only booth to feature a full line of LGBT comics, from best sellers to impossible-to-find favorites."

Creators signing at Prism's booth (#1058, between DC and Marvel Comics) include Jennifer Camper0, Jennifer Camper2, Kris Dresen, Dylan Edwards, Erica Friedman, JD Glass, Jeff Krell, Topher MacDonald, Sean McGrath, Charles "Zan" Christensen's Northwest Press, Ivan Velez, plus more to be added.

Prism's 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).
