Off-Panel: June 2, 2015

Our daily round-up of news around the comics space, from the gutters and beyond.

“Did you realize there’s a whole subculture of Star Trek horticulturists? There are daylilies named after Trek, a handful of hostas, and even a Star Trek begonia. The perfect statuary to go with your newly-acquired Star Trek plants? Why, that would be the Star Trek Garden Gnomes, of course! They come in four flavors.”


“This comic will forever change the way you look at privilege.”


“#BlackComicsMonth was birthed during Black History Month and spotlighted 28 days of black comic creators. After realizing that 28 days wasn’t enough, has continued featuring black creators in the mainstream as well as independent comics community, along with black comic characters.”

If you haven’t heard of #BlackComicsMonth, it’s awesome, and there’s going to be a panel on it at Special Edition this year. I’ll be there; if you’ll be at SE:NYC, make sure to say hi!
