DragonCon 2013 and a Look Forward

Daniel-Amrhein-Dragon-Con-2013Dragon Con was amazing. Let me start by sending out a great big thank you to everyone who made it out to my panels. You all packed that conference room and were the best audience I’ve ever had the pleasure to speak to. On Saturday night, we even had a bunch of people hang out for an extra two hours after the panel officially “ended” to chat about gender, race, and sexuality in comics.

Getting the chance to talk to so many intelligent and passionate people about the things I care about was exhilarating. You all made my con. Thanks for being so awesome.

If you didn’t get a chance to catch “Tights, Tits, and Titian: Female Objectification from the Italian Renaissance to Contemporary Comics,” don’t worry because I’ll be adapting the presentation into a series of posts in the coming months. I’ll even include a few parts that didn’t make it into the presentation due to time restraints.

But first, I have a few other series to publish. Next week, I’ll publish the first part of “In Defense of the Mutant Oppression Metaphor” in which I’ll respond to a few readers’ questions and discuss fear and oppression, the relativity of power, and self-defense in X-Men.

I also realized that I never finished my promised post about sexualized and domestic violence against women in Avengers Vs X-Men. The event may be over (thankfully) but I still think it’s a topic worth talking about so I’ll try to get that out to you all in the next few months.

Finally, I haven’t forgotten about the Justice League, Avengers, and X-Men 2012 Superhero Census. I’m hard at work on those final results and am looking forward to sharing them with you all.

There’s a lot of exciting stuff on the horizon so make sure to stay tuned!
