Three women on a comics convention panel...
And it's not a Women in Comics panel?!
This can't be the first time this has ever happened at a convention, but it's rare enough that I want to point out that SpringCon has scheduled a panel at 3:00 pm this Saturday with Elizabeth Berube, Trina Robbins, and Amy Reeder and doesn't mention the panelists' gender even once in the description. Instead, the panel will focus on the way the comics industry has changed from generation to generation. I imagine there'll be some gender discussion as part of that conversation, but it's refreshing to see a convention that doesn't have to point that out specifically or make it the focus of the panel.
I'll be exhibiting at SpringCon, but I'm gonna try to sneak away from the table long enough to attend this.
