She's a superhero to us, and that's why Joyce Farmer will present the lecture “No Superheroes: Creating Underground Comics” on Thursday, April 24, at Penn State.
It's a topic Farmer knows a little thing or two about -- as the co-creator of Tits & Clits Comix series in 1972, the work of her and her contemporaries countered the sexism they saw in male-produced underground comix of the time. Come hear her talk about this revolutionary time in comics history from 7:00 to 8:30 PM.
Joyce will also discuss her amazing graphic memoir, Special Exits, that we published in 2010. None other than R. Crumb has said of this book: "One of the best long-narrative comics I've ever read, right up there with Maus... I actually found myself moved to tears."
Joyce will be speaking at Foster Auditorium inside Paterno Library at Penn State, located at 510 Paterno Library, University Park, PA.
