We're hosting a group of LGBT comics creators at a deluxe Comic-Con booth in July. Help us make a huge splash for queer indie comics!
UPDATE! We've still got a few days to go! Everything is scheduled and we've got an amazing lineup of guests and events planned. Check out the details at Prismcomics.org! And we've put the finishing touches on the design of the space as well, and I wanted to share it with you. (You can see a larger version of it here.)
Prism Comics is dedicated to supporting lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) comics, creators and fans. Every year, we have a major presence at Comic-Con International, the largest comics and pop-culture event in North America. We sell and promote LGBT comics, organize and moderate panel discussions (a record four panels are planned for this year) and sponsor social events. This year, our hub for all this activity will be a three-booth exhibition space in the main publisher area of the convention floor.
This year, we're excited to be hosting almost dozen talented LGBT cartoonists as partners in our exhibition space. This enables these indie creators to have a major presence at the Con in a high-traffic area—neighboring heavy-hitters like Marvel and DC Comics—where they can introduce their work to lots of new fans and pay a cost much, much lower than it would be for them to buy their own premium space at the show.
Our stellar lineup this year includes:
- Brad Rader
- Brian Andersen
- Dave Davenport
- Ed Luce
- Fanboys of the Universe
- J.D. Glass
- Jeff Krell
- Northwest Press
- Paige Braddock
- Poseur, Ink
- Steve MacIsaac
We want to make sure partnering with us at the show stays within reach of indie creators, so we're reaching out to the community for support. All proceeds will go directly toward reducing cost for these partners, so they can promote and sell their work at the most important comics show of the year.
LGBT cartoonists are producing amazing material that deserves the spotlight of Comic-Con International, so please join us in supporting this unique and vibrant artistic community!
