Fanbase Press’ Programming

Fanbase Press and its creators will be hosting a number of thought-provoking panels throughout the weekend:


1:00 p.m.: Hey, That’s Just Like Me! When Superheroes Represent Their Readers – Led by Barbra Dillon (editor-in-chief, Fanbase Press), this panel – featuring Jordan Hart (writer, Ripple Effects), David M. Booher (writer, Killer Queens), Ashley V. Robinson (writer, Jupiter Jet), and Jen Troy (writer, Assassin G) – will feature a thoughtful conversation about why it is important that the superheroes in comic books become more representative of their diverse readership, demonstrating examples of mainstream and independent comics which have made positive strides towards reflecting today’s society in their creators, stories, and characters. Room: 402B

3:00 p.m.: Graphic Medicine: Building Empathy Through Comics – Led by Barbra Dillon (editor-in-chief, Fanbase Press), this panel – featuring Jordan Hart (writer, Ripple Effects), Dr. Theresa Rojas (Board Member, Graphic Medicine Int’l Collective), and Alex Schumacher (writer, The Ill Effects of Pickled Herring) – will discuss the field of graphic medicine (i.e., the convergence of Medicine and Comics) and how these visual stories have allowed us to examine the essentials of human existence, to understand ourselves better, and to connect with one another through empathy and compassion.
