Watch When Available!

YouTube: https://youtu.be/zqKAY0WddNE

Can pop culture help promote mental wellness during the COVID-19 pandemic, or is that just “crazy” talk? Heather Antos (senior editor, Valiant and Image), Bryan Edward Hill (DC Comics’ Batman and The Outsiders, Netflix/DC Universe’s Titans), Joseph Illidge (executive editor, Heavy Metal, Humanoids’ MPLS Sound), and Patrick Tatopoulos (production designer, Batman v Superman, Zack Snyder’s Justice League) join forensic psychiatrists Vasilis K. Pozios, M.D., and Praveen Kambam, M.D., (Broadcast Thought, freelance contributors to The New York Times, Wired, The Hollywood Reporter) to discuss how pop culture fandom communities can help stave off social isolation and despair during this unprecedented public health crisis. The “‘Crazy’ Talk” crew will also discuss the state of mental health media representation and how a mental health/pop culture partnership can be a “win-win” for both the entertainment industry and people with mental illnesses. Moderated by attorney Jeff Trexler (The Comics Journal, The Beat).

Reclaiming Indigenous History and Culture Through Comics

Watch When Available!

For hundreds of years, the history of the indigenous peoples of the Americas has been told by everyone but themselves, by people who often diminished and distorted it, and even suppressed their cultures and languages.

Comics and such visual technologies as augmented and virtual reality are ideal tools being used to accomplish this. Join our panelists Johnny Bear Contreras (Kumeyaay, public artist), Kilma Lattin (Pala Band, founder of OurWorlds.io), and Chag Lowry (Yurok/Maidu/Achumawi, graphic novelist) as they discuss their projects to reclaim indigenous history and culture.

Hip-Hop And Comics: Cultures Combining

Watch When Available!

YouTube: https://youtu.be/pZsjzML8IKI

Hip-Hop and comics cultures exist in constant communication: continually namehecking and reflecting each other, trading ideas back and forth, and sharing many common inspirations and influences. Both forms reconfigure existing elements to create vital new works; utilize bold imagery and complex storytelling; and form passionate fandoms around their characters and personalities. Here, curator and historian Patrick A. Reed (Depth Of Field Productions, twitter.com/djpatrickareed) presents a “visual mixtape” with an all-star cast of musicians, comic creators, and visual artists discussing the cross-generational impacts of these cultural crossovers. Panelists include Pharoahe Monch (http://www.pharoahe.com/), Johnny “Juice” Rosado (https://theoddysy.bandcamp.com/), Vita Ayala (https://twitter.com/definitelyvita), Danny Lore (http://dannylore.com/), DJ Nu-Mark (https://djnu-mark.bandcamp.com/), Marc 7 (https://twitter.com/marc7j5mc), Mega Ran (https://megaranmusic.com/), Christopher “Play” Martin (https://twitter.com/theplaygroundz), Adam Wallenta (https://www.punktaco.com/), Kenny Keil (https://www.kennykeil.com/), LiKWUiD (https://www.ellamaeflossie.com/), James Reitano (http://tfustudios.com/), David F.

Famous Monsters podcast crew, Jorge “The-Jack-Of-All-Trades” Marrero and Jason “The Falcon” Ioannou, are joined by fellow podcasters Matt Corrigan and Aaron McLane of The Launchpad podcast to play a game called “Body Count”! The game pits iconic monsters like the Wolf Man, Pennywise, and Pumpkinhead against each other to see who can collect the most victims. And there’s a catch, of course: the randomized victims won’t be completely helpless! Enter powerhouses like the Dream Warriors and the space marines from Aliens. Every battle will take place in a different setting–from the foggy English moors of American Werewolf to the House on Haunted Hill! It’s the best kind of monster battle roulette from the experts who know their every secret move, and is sure to result in both riotous laughter and impassioned debates.

The Wonderful, Horrible World of E.C. Comics

Watch When Available!

YouTube: https://youtu.be/34ZvBm86tzw

Max Gaines started E.C. Comics in 1944 as Educational Comics. With his 1947 death, his son, William M. Gaines, changed the name to Entertaining Comics, and put out controversial horror, crime, war, and science fiction comics (and MAD magazine), working with the greatest talent to ever do comics. E.C. historian Grant Geissman’s The History of E.C. Comics–the ultimate E.C. Comics compendium, with over 1, 000 illustrations–is scheduled from Taschen for fall 2020. To celebrate the new tome–and all things E.C.–comics historians Grant Geissman (Foul Play! The Art and Artists of the Notorious 1950s E.C. Comics!), Danny Fingeroth (A Marvelous Life: The Amazing Story of Stan Lee), Arie Kaplan (From Krakow to Krypton: Jews and Comic Books), and Dr. Travis Langley (The Joker Psychology: Evil Clowns and the Women Who Love Them) look at E.C.’s lasting impact. Visit https://linktr.ee/DannyFingeroth for more info on the panelists.
