Tesla Cariani, doctoral candidate in English at Emory, and her students in ENG389: Nonbinary Narratives in LGBTQ+ Comics and Graphic Novels have invited us to join a workshop with Wendy Xu on April 6th, 2021, at 2:40pm EDT. You’ll need to register at that link, but the event is free.
Wendy Xu is an award-nominated Brooklyn-based illustrator and comics artist with three upcoming graphic novels from Harper Collins.
She is the co-creator of Mooncakes, a young adult fantasy graphic novel published in 2019 from Lion Forge Comics/Oni Press. Part of it can be read on mooncakescomic.tumblr.com. Her work has been featured on Catapult, Barnes & Noble Sci-fi/Fantasy Blog, and Tor.com, among other places. You can find more art on her instagram: @artofwendyxu or on twitter: @angrygirLcomics.
I’ll offer extra credit to anyone who attends and writes a post on their site about their thoughts on the event.
