- Brazilian Comics with Luli Penna April 19, 2018

She has contributed to a number of magazines, newspapers, and books, and is the author of the graphic novel Sem Dó (No Pity), a beautiful and tragic love story set in São Paulo in the 1920s.

- Spotlight on Joyce Farmer April 17, 2018
Join us for an evening with renowned cartoonist Joyce Farmer on Tuesday, April 17 from 6:00-7:30 PM. Farmer has been creating comics since 1972. The series Tits and Clits (1972-1987) explored women’s adventures regarding sex and cultural expectations. Abortion Eve, edited by Joyce Farmer and Lyn Chevli, was published shortly after the Supreme Court’s January 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling and informed women about the realities of abortion. Controversial at the time, Farmer is now recognized as a pioneer in underground comix.
Her graphic memoir Special Exits (2010) depicts the universal problems of the elderly and treatment of the extremely vulnerable by the medical community. She won a Reuben award and was nominated for an Eisner the same year. The book has been translated into five languages.
Farmer will be in conversation with comics journalist and CXC Executive Director, Thomas Spurgeon.
The event is FREE. A book signing will follow the presentation.
Cosponsored by Cartoon Crossroads Columbus – CXC.
