Comics Science Fiction: Utopia, Dystopia, and Everything in Between
Science fiction allows us to imagine a world radically reshaped by social, scientific, and technological changes.

Charles Glaubitz (Starseeds), Ezra Claytan Daniels (Upgrade Soul, BTTM FDRS), and Aminder Dhaliwal (Woman World) participate in a discussion of the ways that science fiction comics can transport us to utopia, dystopia, or that big gray area in between.
