Comics Carousel: Graphic Novels Come to Life

Middle grade

It was a little bit of theater and a whole lot of art as comics artists Pénélope Bagieu (Brazen), Mariko Tamaki (Lumberjanes), Iasmin Omar Ata (Mi(s)hadra) and Tony Medina (I Am Alfonso Jones) joined in a comics carousel led by Bob Sikoryak to showcase their visual talents and unique perspectives—and performed parts from their books! Original and subversive, they shared their singular stories from the frontlines of comics that resist clichéd narratives and reimagined our futures. Q&A with the authors followed.
