How do comics handle memoir, by creating both narrative and visual depictions of the self? The complexities of sexuality and gender offer a unique terrain for comic artists; how do LGBTQ cartoonists in particular use memoir to make sense of the world and their place in it? How does the practice of memoir in turn affect the creation of work in other genres? Join moderator Justin Hall (No Straight Lines, Hard to Swallow) as he leads a lively discussion with comics luminaries Dylan Edwards (Transposes, Nothing Wrong with Me), Tana Ford (Duck, Silk), Sina Grace (Nothing Lasts Forever, Iceman), and Ajuan Mance (Gender Studies, 1001 Black Men).
