This is my section of the display banner that will be up behind the Prism Comics Booth at San Diego Comic Con this year – a mosaic featuring different creators who will be selling work at the booth during the Convention. The art is a cropped and recolored scene from the second book of my “Unpacking”.
The Con runs from Thursday July 22 to Sunday July 25th. As usual, I will be at Comic Con for the Saturday and Sunday only, selling comics at the Prism Booth and appearing on the following panel:
Saturday, July 24 – 3:00-4:00 PM – Queer Press Grant Roundup
Prism Comics, the non-profit organization promoting LGBT comics, creators, and fans, started an annual Queer Press Grant in 2005 to help queer cartoonists self-publish their comics. Five years and many thousands of dollars later, the QPG has helped out an impressive line-up of some of the best upcoming, LGBT cartoonists, and it remains one of the only grants available for comics creators today. Prism will kick off the submission process for the 2010 Queer Press Grant at Comic-Con. Join moderator Roger Klorese (Prism Comic’s Publications Chair) and past recipients Justin Hall (Glamazonia the Uncanny Super Tranny), Ed Luce (Wuvable Oaf), Steve MacIsaac (Shirtlifter), and Eric Orner (The Mostly Unfabulous Social Life of Ethan Green) as they discuss applying for the Grant, what they’ve been up to since winning it, and what’s next for both their comics and the Grant in 2010.
