Protest, Plague, and Politics: 2020 in Comics

We’ve almost made it! As the Month of MICE takes place, the infamous year 2020 is entering its final phase. This panel takes a look at how the tumult of 2020 has been processed by three comics creators, very much in the thick of the year’s controversies and conflicts: the pandemic, Black Lives Matter protests, and the national politics overhanging it all. How have the crises been reflected in their work? What is the relationship between creativity, career, and political engagement?  What role can comics play in such crucial public debates and movements?
