Over the weekend we celebrated our annual library-sponsored Little Rock comic book convention, CALS Con. As always, cosplayers and enthusiasts turned out to represent various fandoms, from Guardians of the Galaxy to Batman, Star Wars to Doctor Who. I’m no stranger to conventions. I’ve attended ComicCon in San Diego, Gen Con in Indianapolis, ICC (International Camarilla Convention) in New Orleans. Last year at CALS Con I moderated a panel discussing Studio Ghibli and the world of Miyazaki Hayao. This year I was honored to participate in the panel on Propaganda in Comics, and I thought my readers here might be interested in the highlights.
P.S. None of the images belong to me and I tried to provide all the sources I could.

Some dehumanizing, racist bullshit
