ComiqueCon 2015 is a new comic con taking place in Dearborn, Michigan on November 7th at the Arab American National Museum. The aim is for the show to bring together female artists, illustrators, publishers and fans, with a focus on on the growing impact of female comic book readers.
Guests will include Alex de Campi, Mairghread Scott, Leila Abdelrazaq, Nancy Collins, Marguerite Dabaie, Nicole Georges and Mikki Kendall. There will also be a costume contest, artist VIP reception, discussion panels and a screening of the documentary She Makes Comics.
Founded by Chelsea Liddy and sponsored by local store Green Brain Comics, owned by Katie Merritt, the show has launched a crowdfunding campaign, with variant editions of Swords Of Sorrow #1, admission to the show, and to a VIP event.
Men are welcome as well, of course. Just, you know, don't expect panel parity at this show….
