Dr. Katie Monnin (education director, Pop Culture Classroom), Raina Telgemeier (Smile), Molly Ostertag (The Witch Boy), Christina "Steenz" Stewart (Archival Quality), and Derek Heid (English/drama teacher, Temecula Valley High School) discuss the fact that, despite nerd culture being at the forefront of the modern zeitgeist, many young lovers of science fiction, fantasy, gaming, and other fandoms often feel isolated in their school community. This can lead to bullying of these quiet and unique children on the basis of their interests or appearance. How can the Comic-Con community help to alleviate the pressure and pain associated with bullying? These artists and educators will explore which comics not just represent bullying but offer solace and solutions to kids who are actively dealing with it. Moderated by Tom Racine (Tall Tale Radio).
