featurebanner_alphagirl_conventionsAMBER LOVE 14-JAN-2013 I was invited to the ARTISTS ASSEMBLE comic convention in Union, NJ. I will lead the “Women in Comics” panel and sit on the panel for “Comics as a Legitimate Art Form” on Saturday, February 2, 2013. I hope that my few years writing comics, modeling, podcasting with creators, and reviewing books will provide me enough information to contribute professionally to these panels.

The organizers have a Facebook event set up with all of the details. You’ll be able to meet Erica Schlutz and Amy Chu, both of whom have been guests on Vodka O’Clock podcast. Also featured are the East Coast Avengers, a cosplay league that does a lot of charity events including the Hurricane Sandy benefit I attended with Ashley a few months ago.
