Wonder Woman Symposium - Sept. 22-24, 2016

posted Aug 22, 2016, 8:53 PM by Vu Nguyen

In honor of the 75th anniversary of the comic book super heroine Wonder Woman in 2016, Kent State University and the Cleveland Public Library will partner to celebrate the intersections of public literacy, comics, and feminism in a jointly sponsored symposium. The 2016 Wonder Woman Symposium partners two powerful public institutions in Northeast Ohio, taking up the historical trends that have changed the world of comics, American popular culture, and feminism. Centering on the figure of Wonder Woman and her heirs, this symposium will feature plenary addresses by major creators in the industry and historians of the comics world, and workshops by comics creators on creating graphic narratives and comics. This forum seeks to highlight both regional and national talent. Our celebration of Wonder Woman's anniversary pays respect to "herstory" while recognizing her perpetual relevance to our present day, and beyond.

Advance Review: Comic Book Fever

COMIC BOOK FEVER - A CELEBRATION OF COMICS: 1976-1986 (24 Aug 2016)
TwoMorrows
ADVANCE REVIEW: Comic Book Fever 
Posted By Dan Greenfield on Aug 13, 2016

Destined to become a bible of the Bronze Age.

There are certain comics projects that speak to me on a primal level and such is the case with George Khoury’s Comic Book Fever, due out 8/24 from TwoMorrows.

(excerpt)

I was especially taken with his feature on Heroes World, whose illustrated catalogues were so tantalizing when I was 12. And reading Wolfman and George Perez talk about the beginnings of The New Teen Titans took me right back to 1980, when I used to risk my life riding my bike over a busy highway bridge in New Brunswick, N.J., to get the latest issue.
