Melissa Colleen Stevenson (Stanford University) explores the ways Brian K. Vaughan's Paper Girls offers a complex and nuanced representation of a fantastical world through the eyes of girls. Ji-Hyae Park (Roosevelt University) argues that the kind of "girl" featured in graphic memoirs by Raina Telgemeier (Smile), Lucy Knisley (Margaret and the Moon), and Liz Prince (Tomboy) may be ordinary, but not mainstream, and would be recognized and embraced by readers as fellow or proto-"fangirl." John A. Walsh (Indiana University) explores pre-Internet participatory culture in the form of reader-contributed content to Marvel's Millie the Model humor and fashion comics, including Trina Robbins' Misty.
