Emerging from the undergrounds and into the alt comix of the 1980s, queer characters and voices have always been loud and proud in alternative and indie comics. Gilbert Hernandez and Jaime Hernandez were at the forefront of queer characters' visibility with their groundbreaking and award-winning comic book series Love and Rockets, featuring such brilliant characters as Hopey, Maggie, Israel, and Julio. Contemporary authors Mariko Tamaki and Ed Luce have contributed new icons in their books Skim and Wuvable Oaf. Join all four creators and moderator Christopher Butcher (Comics212, Toronto Comic Arts Festival for a discussion of the history of queer character visibility in alt and indie comics.
