Middle grade

It’s a little bit of theater and a whole lot of art as comics artists Pénélope Bagieu (Brazen), Mariko Tamaki (Lumberjanes), Iasmin Omar Ata (Mi(s)hadra) and Tony Medina (I Am Alfonso Jones) join in a comics carousel led by Bob Sikoryak to showcase their visual talents and unique perspectives—and perform parts from their books! Original and subversive, they share their singular stories from the frontlines of comics that resist clichéd narratives and reimagine our futures. Q&A with the authors to follow.
