Join us to hear about how super fans, illustrators, and historians are experiencing and engaging with comics as forms of expression and representation.

Our panelists include comics historian Dr. Carol Tilley, writer and illustrator Stephanie Mided, and super-fan Pat Ryan. Together, they will discuss and explore LGBTQIA+ representation in comics past, present, and future.

More about our panelists:

Dr. Carol Tilley is a comics historian, librarian, educator, and youth advocate. As a researcher, Tilley studies the social and cultural history of comics reading and readers. As a teacher, Tilley helps prepare future and current librarians to work with young people in school and public libraries. As a youth advocate, Tilley supports the rights of children and teens to read and explore the world of ideas freely.

Pat Ryan is the self-proclaimed "World's Greatest Adventurer," but he's also a pretty average husband, father, and comic book fan. Pat studied Broadcasting in college, and has worked nearly every job imaginable, but lately has settled on being a counselor for those with substance use disorders. Pat loves comics like the old Marv Wolfman Teen Titans, as well as an array of indie titles like Y: the Last Man, the Goon, and Hellboy. Pat also loves the Universal Monster movies and all things Godzilla, as well as board games, D&D, or any reason to spend time with his friends and family.

Stephanie Mided is a professional graphic novel artist and writer from Chicago who worked on last years “Martian Ghost Centaur” from Oni Press, and has her own original graphic novel series “Club Kick Out” coming out next year from Harper Alley. She identifies as bisexual and likes to work on projects that have a diverse range of characters across the LGBTQ+ spectrum.
