Though it will probably spur a backlash from the troll-ier corners of fanboy world, this year’s San Diego Comic-Con—the ever-more-massive pop culture lollapalooza currently taking over a good part of the city’s downtown—features a broad focus on diversity and social justice issues.
Per the San Diego Union-Tribune, here’s a few of the events being highlighted:
- Panel: “Radical Activism in Comics”
- Panel: “What Rebellions are Built On: Popular Culture, Radical Culture, and Politically Engaged Geeks”
- Voter registration drive led by Indivisible and Black Mask Studios
Also, Black Mask Studios is releasing a special convention issue of their Trump-versus-California comic Calexit, with all proceeds going to help immigrants and their families in the San Diego area.
