Glyphs kicking off ECBACC
This weekend Temple University in Philadelphia, PA is hosting the annual East Coast Black Age of Comics Convention, but itf you look at the poster you’ll note that the first event, the Glyph Comic Awards recognizing "the best in comics made by, for, and about people of color from the preceding calendar year," is actually taking place at the African American Museum on 701 Arch Street.
While ECBACC is still fairly new, their online presence could use a bit of beefing up — nowhere in the website is there a schedule of events or panels, even though there are some intriguing teasers about workshops. Nor does the AAMP even have the Glyphs listed on their calendar of events; I only found out the start time (7PM) from Mikhaela Reid’s blog (her fiance Makesha Wood is up for the Rising Star award).
But from what I’ve heard of ECBACC, they more than make up for the lack of online detail with their in-person organizational presence. ComicMix looks forward to hearing about all the details from our intrepid correspondents!
