If you’re looking for conversations on race, gender, or sexuality in comics and fandom, Racialicious has a handy guide for this year’s NYC Comic Con convention. Starting Thursday you can attend panels titled, “LGBT and Allies in Comics,” “Representations in Geek Media,” “Geeks of Color Assemble!: Minorities in Fandom,” or “Women of Marvel.” And if you can’t make it, they’ll also be live-tweeting the event. Unfortunately, only four out of 334 panels and screenings address race or gender, which seems in keeping with the industry’s attitude towards these issue.
