Project: Comic Con in St. Louis

Nerd For A Living Joins Super Heroines, Etc’s Programming Track at St. Louis’ Project: Comic Con

Saturday, October 17 – Sunday, October 18 | Sheraton Lakeside Chalet, Westport Plaza Dr, St Louis, MO

St. Louis’ Project: Comic Con is a long-running, small regional convention focused on comic books and creators. It provides excellent opportunities for fans to meet both established creators and up-and-coming local talent. This year, the event also carries a focus on female creators, featuring 13 women working in and making comics.

The convention also provides speaker and education panels. Our friends at Super Heroines, Etc. have teamed with Project: Comic Con to produce a track of S.H.E. created programming. The full listing of these panels can be found here, but one in particular includes Nerd For A Living’s creative director and podcast host, Adron Buske.

About Super Heroines, Etc.

Super Heroines, Etc.Super Heroines, Etc. (SHE) is a 501c3 nonprofit focused on empowering women through educational events, classes, and workshops. As nerd and geek communities – like the tech field, comic conventions, and social media – are increasingly becoming hostile to women, SHE provides safe spaces for women through their mission to foster a women-focused community of nerds to learn, be creative, and gain confidence.

SHE does not discriminate against individuals on the basis of race, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, disability, age, genetic information, veteran status, ancestry, or national or ethnic origin.

All are welcome! They ask that everyone is respectful and welcoming of all who join the group. Though they are female focused, men are welcome to join the group.
