I’ll be on a panel located in the MAGIC Screening Room (Building 8, 1st Floor)
Odd One Out: Memoirs of Un-belonging
All life stories are unique, but when your origin tale sometimes seems too strange for words, how do you tell it? Whether it’s being a quiz-show prodigy, searching for your cat and your soul, learning human connection from your shadow, or transitioning gender, Michael Kupperman (All the Answers), Maggie Thrash (Lost Soul Be At Peace), Liana Finck (Passing for Human), and Erin Nations (Gumballs) explore the challenges of being the odd one out.
You can find me at table T153. I'll have copies of Gumballs (single issues and the trade paperback). I'll also be debuting two brand new zines (Drift and Sure To Fall)!
Also, make sure to stop by the Signing & Selfie table from 3 PM - 4 PM on Sunday so you can meet me and the rest of the creators who contributed to the We're Still Here anthology. We'll be signing copies of the book.
The event ends at 8 PM on Saturday and it ends at 6 PM on Sunday.
Ticket Info online at Flame Con!
If you’re in Portland on June 7th, please stop by Floating World for the release of the Gumballs trade paperback. I’ll be signing books and there will be an exhibit featuring original art from the book. See ya there!
Join me, Trina Robbins, and MK Czerwiec as we discuss our careers in comics!
SYNOPSIS FROM THE FESTIVAL BELOW:
Trina Robbins' Last Girl Standing "transports the reader from WWII-era New York, to the offices of EC and Marvel comics to the post-Summer of Love San Francisco counterculture, and beyond." Erin Nations' Gumballs features a collection of illustrations, gag cartoons, observational drawings and reflections on the true-life journey of gender transition. MK Czerwiec's Taking Turns: Stories from HIV/AIDS Care Unit 371 known as Graphic Medicine, incorporates oral history and personal memoir to tell the story of one Chicago hospital unit.
