3 Undeniably Good Reasons You Should Come See Damian Duffy at Comic Con

Kindred       Comic Con at Urbana Free Library      The Hole by Damian Duffy and John Jennings

Damian Duffy is one of the featured speakers at our all-day Comic Con this Saturday.  Here's the top three reasons you don't want to miss his 11am talk about creating comics.

# 1 He’s a multi-talented, totally-creative Comics Geek  who has had a hand in every aspect of comics-making including writing, lettering, and drawing…and he does a podcast on popular culture (Damian Duffy Hates Everything) …and he’s curated awesome comics art exhibits that highlight diversity in the comics world… and I'm sure there's more.  :-)

# 2  He believes comics can be a force for good, taking on social justice issues like consumer culture (as in The Hole: Consumer Culture written with John Jennings) .  In fact his soon-to-be-released book Kindred (with collaborator John Jennings) is a graphic novel adaptation of Octavia Butler’s SciFi masterpiece about an African American woman who finds herself mysteriously transported back in time to the pre-Civil War South.

# 3 He's funny.  He's got good ideas.  And he's going to be a highlight of a fantastic day of events.  See you Saturday!
