Comic books have been pointing out injustice and bringing social issues to light since their outset. Over the years, this has ebbed and flowed, and currently, there is a merry war between both sides of the coin of too much and not enough. The comic industry is booming along with films and television series about superheroes. These panelists will share their thoughts on this topic and how current commentary on social justice and diversity have affected this industry. Moderator Heather Newman (founder and CEO of Creative Maven) is joined by Mela Lee (voice actor, Fallout, Final Fantasy) and Erica Lindbeck (actress, ThunderCats Roar).
