Session 1: Sparkles of Brazilian Magical Realism in Daytripper.
Daytripper is a Vertigo comic book written and drawn by Fabio Moon and Gabriel Bá, twin brothers from Brazil. We intend to explore the importance of setting in this comic book.
Session 2: How to survive being Queer and Latinx in Marvel’s America.
America is a Marvel series about the queer superheroine America Chávez written by Gabby Rivera with art by Joe Quinones. The title is not accidental and has a stong significance. America is a great example of the mainstream search for diversity.
The events will take place in room N3060 of the Melville Library at 1pm. The main idea is to discuss the topics of the books and how LatinAmerica is represented, as well as latinx identity inside and outside the United States, in mainstream comics.
Both books can be found in English. Red Shirt Comics offers 20% off to those who asked for this books previous to the events.
