In addition to having a table in Artist Alley, I will also be on two panels talking about two topics near and dear to my heart -- romance comics (of course) and my grandfather/the 75th anniversary of the Green Lantern.

STRONG FEMALE CHARACTERS: WHAT THEY ARE AND WHAT
What is a Strong Female Character to you? Who is she? Is it Wonder Woman? She-Hulk? Is it someone who doesn't fight but kicks butt in other ways? Join Jenna Busch (Legion of Leia, Star Wars Psychology: Dark Side of the Mind, Most Craved), Genese Davis (author, The Holders' Dominion), Janet Lee (artist, Return of the Dappermen), Jacque Nodell (SequentialCrush.com) and Renee Witterstaetter (editor, She-Hulk, colorist Avengers) to talk about your favorites, how things are changing and what makes someone 'strong.'

1940: WORLD WAR II AND COMICS: THE JOKER, ROBIN, THE FLASH, CAPTAIN AMERICA, CAPTAIN MARVEL, AND THE SPIRIT! With CASEY, NODELL & FINGEROTH
75 years ago, in 1940, as the Nazi conquest of Europe continued and the Battle of Britain raged, the United States watched from the sidelines while instituting the first peacetime draft. At the same time, the world of comics was experiencing an incredible sustained period of invention, as The Joker, Robin, Green Lantern, the Flash, Hawkman, the Spirit, Catwoman, and Captains America and Marvel all debuted! (Not to mention the debuts of pop culture icons Bugs Bunny, and Brenda Starr, and classic movies Fantasia and The Great Dictator!) Showing and discussing historical and cultural factors that made that year so important is a panel including moderator Danny Fingeroth (Disguised as Clark Kent: Jews, Comics and the Creation of the Superhero) as well as an array of history and pop culture experts, including Joe Casey (Ben 10) and Jacque Nodell (granddaughter of Green Lantern creator Martin Nodell).
Will you be there? If so, please be sure to stop by and say hello!
