For comic book fans in the Southern California area, Long Beach Comic Expo is an annual event that showcases the exceptional works of talented writers, artists, illustrators, and creators of all pop culture genres. The convention will return once again this year, taking place from Saturday, February 18, and Sunday, February 19, 2017, with a plethora of phenomenal panels scheduled throughout the weekend. Today, Fanbase Press is honored to announce the inclusion of the Fanbase Press Presents: Inclusivity in the Comic Book Medium Panel which will take place on Saturday, February 18, at 3:30 p.m. in the Creators’ Lab S-5. With panelists Yehudi Mercado (Hero Hotel, Rocket Salvage), Kit Steinkellner (Quince, Z: The Beginning of Everything), Emma Steinkellner (Quince, Xbox), Sebastian Kadlecik (Quince, Penguins vs. Possums), and Stefano Terry (The Gamma Gals) participating, we invite you to join in on the insightful and exciting event!
The Fanbase Press Presents: Inclusivity in the Comic Book Medium panel will discuss the importance of inclusivity in the comic book medium and the ways in which the panelists are making the greatest efforts to bring diversity and inclusivity to their work. The comic book fanbase is a diverse landscape of readers, representing all genders, nationalities, ethnicities, sexual preferences, and ages. As the industry continues to evolve, so too should the diversity of its creators, characters, titles, and genres in order to better represent its fanbase. The panel will be moderated by Fanbase Press Editor-in-Chief Barbra Dillon.
Everyone at Fanbase Press is greatly looking forward to the convention, and we hope to see you there!
