GeekGirlCon ’13: Did you love Mike Madrid last year?
Well, he returns to GeekGirlCon ‘13! Mike Madrid was present on panels at GeekGirlCon ‘11 and ‘12. He’s appeared on such GeekGirlCon panels as 70 Years of Comic Book Fashion, Very Special Dudes, and History of the Universe as Told by Wonder Woman.
“Mike was very popular with attendees the past two years, and we’re excited he’ll be joining us again,” Director of Programming and Events, Jennifer Stuller, said.
Madrid was featured in the documentary Wonder Woman! The Untold Story of American Superheroines, which aired on PBS on April 15, 2013. The documentary shows the story of Wonder Woman from the 1940s to today, tying its development to the path of women’s liberation. This film included many Wonder Woman luminaries, including Lynda Carter, Lindsay Wagner, Gloria Steinem, Trina Robbins (past GeekGirlCon attendee), Gail Simone (past GeekGirlCon attendee), Jane Espenson (this year and past GeekGirlCon attendee), and our own Director of Programming, Jennifer K. Stuller.
Divas, Dames, and Daredevils is Madrid’s latest project, a book set for release this fall. Exploring the forgotten superheroines of WWII era comics, he reintroduces comic fans to these amazing women lost in our past.
Madrid is slated to give a presentation on the Divas, Dames, and Daredevils panel at GeekGirlCon ‘13.
