The comic world's longest-running panel is 33 this year and enters the virtual age with Comic-Con@Home! As the comic book world has become a celebrated part of the pop culture world, "Out In Comics" is more relevant than ever before. With LGBTQ or LGBTQ-friendly creators as writers, artists, directors, producers, actors, entertainers, and journalists, what do their characters and creations mean for diverse representation, characters, and storylines in comics, film, and television? In our politicized and sometimes polarized world, what kind of heroes do we need, both behind-the-scenes, and on the page and screen? At a time when politics, viruses, racism, homophobia, and transphobia--sometimes interchangeable--intrude on every aspect of our lives, join Prism Comics and our diverse all-star panel to celebrate and spotlight creators, comics, and fans as they discuss the past, present, and future of Out In Comics! Founding moderator and bestselling author Andy Mangels (Wonder Woman ‘77 Meets The Bionic Woman, Star Trek and Star Wars books and comics) again chairs the panel and welcomes special guests, including Christian Cooper (famous bird-watcher and Karen-fighter, co-creator, and writer of the Marvel series Darkhold and Star Trek: Starfleet Academy, editor of the Marvel Swimsuit Specials, and creator of the Independent Queer Nation online gay comic), Hazel Newlevant (cartoonist of the graphic novellas If This Be Sin and Sugar Town, and their recent graphic memoir No Ivy League. They have edited and published the anthologies Chainmail Bikini: The Anthology of Women Gamers and Comics For Choice, and co-edited the Eisner-winning anthology Puerto Rico Strong. They are the recipient of Ignatz, Xeric, and Prism Grant awards.), Noelle Stevenson (executive producer and showrunner for DreamWorks She-Ra and the Princesses of Power, author of The Fire Never Goes Out: A Memoir in Pictures, Eisner and GLAAD Media Award-winning and New York Times bestselling writer of Nimona and Lumberjanes), Tim Sheridan (writer for WB Animation and Netflix, with credits on DC Super Hero Girls, Justice League Action, Scooby-Doo!, Teen Titans Go!, Reign Of the Superman, The Death and Return of Superman, and the upcoming Superman: Man of Tomorrow and Netflix's Masters of the Universe: Revelation).
