Get outta town: Indigenous Comic Con 2017

by Patty Templeton

The Second Annual Indigenous Comic Con is upon us! Lee Francis, founder of Native Realities Press and owner of Red Planet Books and Comics, has spearheaded another year of pop culture and glorious geekery at the Isleta Resort and Casino, 11000 Broadway Blvd. SE, Albuquerque.

Indigenous Comic Con lasts from Friday, Nov. 10 through Sunday, Nov. 12. Each day is stacked with panels and events to attend, aside from cruising the sold-out vendor hall. A few of the standout panels that DGO sure as heck wants to catch are “Indigenous Horrorshow” about Indigenous macabre creators, “Showrunners 101” where Native folks involved in film and television talk about the biz, “The Pocahontas Problem” where panelists will discuss Native women in popular media, and “Queer Comics.”

Bonus: there are epic guests attending the con, like Eugene Braverock (you recently saw him as The Chief in “Wonder Woman”), models/gamers the Baker Twins, and Daniel Wilson, author of “Robopocalypse.”

Also on the docket, COSPLAY and LASER TAG! Possibly, probably, joined together.

Never been to a convention? Well, here’s yer perfect chance to jump on the fandom wagon. A day pass is as low as 20 bucks with a three-day pass costing $60. Kids’ passes cost half that and VIP shenanigans start at $95.
