Superhero x Comic Book Heroines Feminist Film Mashup!

Sep 18, 2018 @ 6:45 pm - 8:15 pm

$12

Join us for a Superhero x Comic Book Heroine themed feminist film mashup with
The Mary Sue!

Sponsored by Tor Books and their #FearlessWomen campaign! Get a free tote bag, sticker, and a select #FearlessWoman book!

Princess Weekes, Assistant Editor of The Mary Sue (www.themarysue.com) breaks the mold of the oh-so-tired female narrative by challenging the ways we have come to accept female roles in film with a playful and engaging feminist clip-show-style film analysis.

Also included: A special video message from beloved fantasy author, Victoria, V.E. Schwab!

Princess will take a Black Widow dive into the history of female comic-book/superhero movies and explore the common tropes in these films through a feminist, pop cultural lens as well as why it took so long to get these movies done and done right. Plus representation issues.

The show is guaranteed to bring a fresh perspective and a few side splitting laughs while promoting a healthy camaraderie among attendees.

*Seating is on a first come, first-served basis. Having a ticket guarantees entry, but does not guarantee a seat.

Stick around after the show! Redeem your ticket at the bar for $2 off any drink
