Today we highlight panels three and four of the 2022 Latinx Comic Arts Festival!
“Artivism: Comic Arts as Activism” features a discussion of how from the earliest superheroes fighting the “forces of evil” to historical accounts and graphic memoir, comics have virtually always been used to express discontent and call for change. Join us as panelists discuss how comics can work as a medium for social justice.
Featuring J.M. Hunter, Henry Barajas, and Robert Liu Trujillo.
Moderated by: Kristen Parraz of Comadres y Comics
