You simply can't have a panel about "brave women" in comics without having our own Trina Robbins in the mix!
So, join them on Wednesday, November 13th from 10:00 AM to Noon for the panel "Brave Women in Comix Then & Now: San Francisco Comix Scene from 1970 to Today." As you no doubt know, that city was the epicenter for "American Underground Comixs" in the '60s and '70s, breaking ground for new genres in comixs for women, gays, Latinos, and other diverse groups. This is sure to be a rare intellectual and art event that will bring forth unknown and inspirational dialogue from a feminine and historical perspective.
Along with Trina, the spirited round table discussion will also include Maureen Burdock of Laydeez Do Comix, Heather Plunkett from the Cartoon Art Museum, Isis Rodriguez of My Life as a Comic Stripper, and fellow pioneer Mary Wings from San Francisco's underground comix scene, who just happens to be in our award-winning anthology No Straight Lines: Four Decades of Queer Comics!
Be sure to ask Trina about her fantastic new book Pretty in Ink: North American Women Cartoonists 1896-2013 -- a revised, updated and rewritten history of women cartoonists, with more color illustrations than ever before, and with some startling new discoveries!
The San Francisco branch of the California College of the Arts is located at 1111 Eighth Street. This event is FREE, and open to the public.
