MoCCA Panel Highlight: Sequential Activism

Categories:  News

Can comics truly be an activist art form? Can activist comics change the world? These seem like strange questions, I’ll admit. Alternative comics have, from their on-set, been a product of counter-cultural leanings, from the psychedelic rags of the 60s and 70s to the punk minis of the 80s, to today’s post-modern art books—but have they ever truly presented a microcosmic movement on-par with the ever-evolving world of the protest singers?

I certainly don’t claim to have all of the answers to these question, that’s why I’ve surrounded myself with some of the artist best equipped to tackle the topic, from Bill Ayers to Peter Kuper, one of the driving forces behind the much-beloved, long-lived political comics anthologies, World War 3 Illustrated.

At 2:00 PM on Sunday, April 11th, join Ayers, Kuper, Josh Neufeld, Tom Hart, and Ward Sutton for Sequential Activism. I will be moderating what’s sure to be an utterly fascinating conversation.
