Queerly Illustrated

Join some of the Bay Area's leading LGBTQ cartoonists as they coordinate with the Cartoon Art Museum of San Francisco during Pride month to put on the annual Queer Comics Expo (QCE). Headlined by Bay Area comics virtuoso and California College of the Arts instructor Ed Luce, known for his wildly popular Wuvable Oaf series, the expo will encourage attendees to cosplay, draw, and attend live demonstrations with some of the best-known queer cartoonists in the business. Featured artists include Eisner nominee and creator of Along Came Lola Jett Atwood and comic creators like Alex Woolfson and Tyler Cohen. Expect a weekend on the cutting edge of LGBTQ comics, and if all that doesn't seem fun enough for you, QCE has promised the appearance of “Super Drag Queens” to commingle with the crowd. Prizes will be handed out for best cosplay, and trendsetting queer comics publishers like Northwest Press and Prism Comics will be featured for all their heroic fierceness. Attendees will receive a 10 percent discount at the Cartoon Art Museum bookstore.

Sun., June 8, 11 a.m.-5 p.m., 2014
