Dale Lazarov Talks Organizational Principles For LGBT Comics At Queer Comics Expo This Weekend

Chicago comic creator Dale Lazarov writes and art directs wordless, gay character-based, sex-positive graphic novels published under the Sticky Graphic Novels imprint published in hardcover by Bruno Gmünder GmbH and in digital format through Class Comics. You might also find these wordless, gay character-based, sex-positive graphic novels erotic, but Dale makes no such claims himself.

He's also making a presentation at the Queer Comics Expo in San Francisco this Sunday, and he wrote to let us know about it:

Just wanted to let you know about the presentation I am making at the Queer Comics Expo this Sunday at 2PM at the Northwest Press Classroom.  Queer Comics Expo will be held at SOMArts, 934 Brannan Street, San Francisco, California.  Tickets for the con are at https://guestlist.co/events/458058?utm=irxc2b98yvf7axzk

Sun 2pm
Queer But Not Haphazard: organizational principles for LGBT comics
"Queer But Not Haphazard" is a craft-oriented lecture that presents a discipline for writing, editing and/or anthologizing sequential art about LGBTs. It replaces the erratic "assemblage of loosely-related items" standard that we've inherited from underground comics with an articulate, organic and resilient organizational poetics – either editorial or narrative – that is as emotionally and intellectually-affecting and sophisticated as the best of the world's narrative art.
I will also be at Table 12 at QCE all weekend!  Bring your Sticky Graphic Novels for signing; I will also have copies of the books you don't have for sale.  :)
If you're in San Francisco this weekend, be sure to stop by the Queer Comics Expo, Saturday, July 8 & Sunday, July 9, 2017, from 11AM to 5PM, and if you do, be sure to stop by Dale's table and tell him we said hello.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
