Spring 2017: Queer Comics


Out of stock


Sunday, April 23, 2017
2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Class meets at Literary Arts, 925 SW Washington

This workshop offers a safe space for GLBTQI participants to come together and learn about comics, some famous queer artists, and how to make them on their own. Nicole J. Georges will guide students through basic comic layout and construction, terminology, character design, and process in this 3-hour workshop. Students will leave this workshop with a completed comic.

Nicole George’s Lambda Award-winning graphic memoir, Calling Dr. Laura, was called “engrossing, lovable, smart and ultimately poignant” by Rachel Maddow, and “disarming and haunting, hip and sweet, all at once” by Alison Bechdel, author of Fun Home.“ Allô, dr Laura? was an Official Selection at the Angoulême International Comics Festival. 

She has been publishing her own zines and comics for 20 years and has toured the country extensively, including two appearances on Michelle Tea’s Sister Spit tour. Nicole’s diary comic zine, Invincible Summer, has been collected into two anthology books.
