We are so excited to present an artist talk with our January Comics Creator in Residence Eric Kostiuk Williams on Saturday January 25th at 4pm. The talk will focus on a history of North American queer comics, a discussion of Eric’s work, along with a few readings.
CW: Please note, the slideshow and accompanying talk will contain some sexual content and heavy subject matter related to comics and the queer community (for example, the AIDS crisis, suicide, and other material that may be triggering). Please be mindful of this.
Eric Kostiuk Williams is a Toronto-based cartoonist lauded for his fluid visual aesthetic and striking insights into queer culture, gender expression, and urban upheaval. Recent publications include Our Wretched Town Hall from Retrofit Comics and Condo Heartbreak Disco from Koyama Press. He is an Eisner, two-time Lambda Literary and three-time Doug Wright Award finalist. Eric’s comics have also appeared in The Believer and Dazed & Confused Magazine.
