Anna Kegler, ’05 worked with HollabackPHILLY (the Philadelphia branch of the international organization, Hollaback!) and Philly artist, Erin Filson, to create an innovative comic book to use as a tool in youth workshops on street harassment. The launch party is this Saturday, May 25th at 7 pm at Locust Moon Comics. (Facebook invite: https://www.facebook.com/events/172771222885252/
The comic book has been sent to the printers and we can’t wait to share it with you! Meet us at Locust Moon Comics (34 S 40th Street, right off the Market-Frankford line) for the first reveal of “Hollaback: Red, Yellow, Blue”, before we take it to Philadelphia Wizard Con May 30-June 2. Artist Erin Filson will be there to sign copies, and the HollabackPHILLY team will be there with her to talk about future programming and next steps. Enjoy a glass of wine and some delicious snacks to help us celebrate!
In addition to fighting street harassment, this woman-centered comic book will also help fight sexism in the comic book world.
