More Than a Sidekick: Expanding Visibility for Asian American Characters and Creators in Comics

April 21, 2017, 8:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Asian Americans are often relegated to the role of sidekicks in comics, but new generations of creators and characters are changing that narrative. This panel will examine the evolution of Asian American/Pacific Islander (AAPI) representation in comics - both on and behind the page - and how these characters and their AAPI creators are fighting for wider recognition and opportunities in the industry. This panel is co-sponsored in part by Chicago Nerd Social Club. #MoreThanSidekicks
