Heya, folks! With that embarrassing all-male “Women in Comics” panel from the Denver Comic Con still fresh on the comic blogs, I figure now would be a good time to link to the audio of the panels I was on this year at Emerald City Comic Con.
Strip Tease: Adult Comics and The Perverts Who Draw Them (NWS!!!) This after-hours panel features me, Erika Moen, Blue Delliquanti and Leia Weathington, talking about smutty comics, childhood misconceptions about sex, awkward teen years, and the murky origins of The Anal Safety Snails. This puppy runs a full one hour, thirty minutes long, and gets mighty salty.
Being Non-Compliant (Naughty Language) features me (eventually, I got there late), Kate Leth, Noelle Stevenson, Kelly Sue DeConnick, and Erika Moen. Topics include my love/hate relationship with Dave Sim, twitter assholes, juggling adult and all-ages work, and people who feel threatened by the audience and creators of comics diversifying. Clocks in at about 50 minutes.
How To Run a Comics Anthology and Not Screw It Up has me, Kel McDonald, Taneka Stotts, and Sfé
Monster. It opens with a story about a stranger hitting on my husband. The rest is on-topic, though! This is the most instructive and informative of all the panels, so if you’re thinkin’ about running your own project sometime, this might be for you! Pretty clean, and about 50 minutes. (I also mention the Kickstarter I have running right now. Hint hint!)
