There’s a really interesting conversation happening about comic books and diversity. And it’s largely happening online.
Daisy Rosario takes us to Special Edition NYC, a comic book convention, to talk to fans and creators and bring you an overview of just how the conversation is shaping up. First, we meet some fans. Then we talk to David Marquez, the artist who draws Miles Morales, aka Ultimate Spider-Man. He took over from original artist Sara Pichelli. Later, we meet Rachel Edidin, former comic book editor for Dark Horse Comics. In addition, we spoke with writer David Brothers. He currently works with Image Comics.
