Women in Graphic Novels: A Conversation with Roxane Gay and Nalo Hopkinson

Please join us in welcoming the incredible Nalo Hopkinson and Roxane Gay for a conversation moderated by Rachelle Cruz!

Roxane Gay made her comics debut with The Black Panther: World of Wakanda, diving into the stories of The Midnight Angels, breakout characters from Ta-Nehisi Coates’ Black Panther. Best known for her incredible essay collection, Bad Feminist, Gay beautifully transitions into this fantastic graphic novel to tell a love story that is as tender as it is brutal.

Nalo Hopkinson, an award-winning science fiction and fantasy author, is one of four writers creating new stories for Vertigo Publishing in Neil Gaiman's "Sandman" Universe. Welcome to the House of Dahomey, the houseboat of Erzulie Fréda, where the souls of Voodoo followers go when they sleep but even the fearsome Erzulie is powerless when her dream river turns sour, tossing her house from one realm and into another.. the Dreaming! Hopkinson's House of Whispers Vol. 1 will be realeased in trade paperback on July 30th, you don't want to miss it!
