Sol-Con promo
There are, of course, an ongoing variety of presentations, panels, and shows that have moved online this year thanks to COVID. I thought I'd collect a handful of upcoming ones here.
  • Starting tomorrow through Saturday, SÕL-CON: The Brown & Black Comix Expo will bring together Columbus area youth, as well as industry insiders, indie comic creators and exhibitors, for a comic convention unlike any other. It will feature academics such as Adrienne Resha, Deborah Whaley, Stanford Carpenter, and John Jennings among others, as well as creators like J.M. Hunter, Robert Liu-Trujillo, Khaila Carr, and MariNaomi among others. The full schedule can (and registration info) be found here.
  • Not directly comics, but The Prints & Photographs Division of the Library of Congress is offering a virtual tour of their digitized collections, finding aids, and guides on Tuesday, September 15 at noon EDT. Presented by Sara Duke. Register for free.
  • The New York Adventure Club will explore the specific Jewish creations of the American superhero and its antecedents in older, ancient myths — from Ben Grimm to the Golem — as well as the significant contributions Jews have made to the medium of comic book art itself. Presented by Arlen Schumer on Wednesday, September 16 at 1:00pm EDT. Tickets are $10.
  • The New York Adventure Club also will explore the artworks and inspirations of pop art artist Roy Lichtenstein, whose stylized pieces showcasing everyday objects and motifs throughout commercial and popular culture simultaneously earned him the praise of art critics and accusations of plagiarism. Presented by Arlen Schumer on Thursday, September 24 at 8:00pm EDT. Tickets are $10.
  • Comics Crossroads Columbus (CXC) has a number of events online between October 1-4, including spotlights on Faith Erin Hicks, Gene Luen Yang, Fabio Moon, Gabriel Ba, Blue Delliquanti, Liz Montague, and Amy Hwang among others. The full schedule can be found here.
