The long-awaited graphic novel week is here! Today’s topic – Really Graphic Novels:
We’ve talked about Yaoi and Yuri and Superheroes so far in this Graphic Novel Week. But what about the comics we’ve had for decades – the erotic (and sometimes much more than erotic) graphic novels that explored LGBT sexuality decades before marriage equality?
Are they still relevant? Do you read them, and if so, do you have a favorite? Bonus points for any of these that alsy cross over into speculative fiction.
We have a great line up this week, including six topics and four special events:
Thursday, August 27th:
All Day: Yuri
12 PM PDT: Interview – Lily Girls – Lesbianism in Anime
Friday, August 28th:
All Day: Really Graphic Graphic Novels
Saturday, August 29th:
All Day: Breaking into Graphic Novels
Sunday, August 30th:
All Day: Is My Story Right for a Graphic Novel Treatment?
8 AM PDT: Interview – Arshad Ahsanuddin, Pact Arcanum – Adapting a Novel to Graphic Novel Format
It’s gonna be a great week!
