Barbara Slate has written over 300 comic books and graphic novels for DC, Marvel, Archie, and Disney. She is profiled in the seminal work A Century of Women Cartoonists. Barbara teaches the art of the graphic novel in schools, libraries, and literary gatherings using her critically acclaimed textbook You Can Do A Graphic Novel. Her newest publication is called Getting Married and Other Mistakes.

She will give a multimedia presentation entitled “My Life in Comics,” which spans the late ’60s to the present, and offers a woman’s perspective on the male-dominated comic book world. Stan Lee has called her “titanically talented.” Find out why at and at this year’s festival!
