Earlier this week, we told you about the Women in Comics panel at Denver ComicCon that had no women on the panel. As the convention concluded, more information about that panel came to light, and it's emerged that guests of the convention rallied to put on a more relevant Women in Comics panel. A group of creators and experts, including Trina Robbins, Crystal Skillman, Marguerite Bennett, Joelle Jones, and Amanda Conner, led what was apparently a thoughtful roundtable discussion about women in comics.
Denver Comic Con
In two short years, Denver Comic Con has become one of the top comic book conventions in the country. That's an especially huge achievement considering that the show isn't run by Wizard, ReedPop, or any of the other big event producers. Two pals, Charlie La Greca and Frank Romero, started the con from scratch.
Now, La Greca claims he's been unceremoniously ousted by the board of directors after eight months "fraught with difficulty and tumult."
