The Graphic Justice Research Alliance (GJRA) will host its annual conference, Graphic Discussions: Law, Comics, Justice, at St. Francis College in Brooklyn, NY on October 20, 2018. This year's theme sets the stage for exciting and thought-provoking dialogue that's accessible and relevant to scholars, artists, practitioners, policy-makers, writers, and the general public alike.
Legendary comic writer and editor Ann Nocenti will join us as this event's keynote speaker. Nocenti has lent her distinctive voice to numerous beloved comic book runs, including her writings for Marvel's Daredevil and DC's Catwoman, Katana, and Green Arrow. We very much look forward to hearing her observations about the industry, as well as reflections on her latest project, the forthcoming The Seeds, a new four-issue series in collaboration with artist David Aja. The series, part of a new line of Berger Books published by Dark Horse Comics, is described as "An eco-fiction tech-thriller … a story of love beyond race and gender, and of the resilience of both human and animal kind."
This event is free and open to the public. Please join us for what promises to be a stimulating and inclusive occasion!
