Latest edition: Diversity in Comics

Episode Details

Original tape date: October 27, 2014.

First aired: October 29, 2014.

On this special edition of Independent Sources hosted by Zyphus Lebrun, we explore how the sector’s increasing influence is leading to a call for greater racial and gender diversity in the pages of comics as well as amongst the people who make them. We feature interviews with Marvel editor, Sana Amanat, the co-creator of the popular Muslim American super heroine, “Ms. Marvel” and the inker/artist Dexter Vines, who has worked on Superman titles for DC and X-Men for Marvel. We also profile a Surinamese immigrant who wants to start her own custom costume company for curvy women.
