Women on the Dark Side
UPDATED: Sun, Jul 07, 05:47PM
Not all female artists/creators are about unicorns and glittery vampires and silly pseudo-bondage. Some women create truly dark and challenging art and content, with just enough humor and whimsy to counterbalance all that darkness. Whether it's comic books, novels, or art, these are the women who are creating content that connects with the deeper, darker side of all of us. Panelists include Mairghread Scott (Netflix's Magic, The Gathering, Marvel Rising), MD Marie (Vindication), Susan Lee (founder, Women on The Dark Side), and Madeleine Holly-Rosing (Boston Metaphysical Society), moderated by Joelle Monique (Black Girl Nerds).
