  • Saturday 4:30-5:30 Love is in the Air: LGBT Romance Comics— Romance comics, once a staple of the comics industry but now considered campy curiosities, have inspired a new generation that has created their own take on matters of the heart while moving beyond the boy-girl soap operas of yesteryear. Moderator Charles “Zan” Christensen (Mark of Aeacus) and panelists Terry Moore (Strangers in Paradise), Tim Fish (Cavalcade of Boys), Mari Morimoto (manga translator of Naruto), Colleen Coover (X-Men: First Class), Steve MacIsaac (Shirtlifter), and Michelle Nolan (Love on the Racks: A History of American Romance Comics) discuss the new LGBT romance comics.
