Latina creators discussing gender issues in comics

A few of the creators who exhibited at our Latino Comics Expo San Francisco were interviewed recently by MISSION LOCAL.

The topic of discussion was 'Gender issues in the comic world'. Among those interviewed were Gabrielle Gamboa, Cyrstal Gonzalez, Marisa Garcia and Liz Mayorga, who in the interview talks about the influence of her Mexican culture on her work:

For Liz Mayorga the influence is apparent in such stories as “Inked,” where she explores her experience revisiting Mexico as a tattooed woman, as well as in publications where there is no connection at first sight, like Monstrous Love Stories, which takes graphic elements directly inspired by Mexican iconography.
