It’s almost upon us!
San Diego Comic Con 2016!
I’ve been trying to draft up posts to leave while I’m gone but I’ll be honest: this week I’ve been too excited, stressed, busy, and nervous to really make coherent blog posts!
If you’re going to be around SDCC I would love to meet you! I’ll probably be wandering the exhibit hall/artist alley most of the time.
If you’d like, you can come see me on one of the two scheduled events I’m on!
Thursday, July 21, 5:30-6:30 PM, Room 24ABC
You might be seeing more popular media starring women, but are there more that are actually about women? With so many stories failing the Bechdel Test (a test that measures whether a story has two women in it who talk about something other than a man), it leaves many wondering if pop culture is making any progress at all. Here to discuss the Bechdel test as well as diversity in media (and the lack thereof), are Action Flick Chick, Katrina Hill (100 Greatest Graphic Novels), Janina Scarlet(Superhero Therapy, Star Wars Psychology), Jennifer Stuller (Ink-Stained Amazons, GeekGirlCon), Patricia Tallman (Babylon 5, Quest Retreats), Jessica Tseang (Little Geek Girls, Girl on Geek), Tony B. Kim (Hero Within, Crazy4ComicCon), Ashley Bles(Henderson State University), and moderator Jenna Busch (Legion of Leia, Most Craved).
Saturday, July 23, 2:00-3:00 PM, Room 26AB
The CAC’s poster session gives attendees the opportunity to interact directly with presenters……..
Ashley Bles (Henderson State University) presents an empirical test for analyzing the representation and role of women in superhero comics.
I’ll have business cards to hand out, and totally be a dork around you. Please come say hi!
