Anina was interviewed about Friends of Lulu. It was a nonprofit organization created in the 1990s to help promote women readers and creators in comics, and Anina was one of the founders.
Leila del Duca interviews Anina and her long time pal Heidi MacDonald talk about how the ideas FoL promoted in 1994 helped create the explosion of comics for a more diverse audience today. Find out how 30 women meeting in a coffee shop during San Diego Comic-Con grew into a national organization that published news, comics, and a retailer handbook; organized panels and conferences; and gave out the annual Lulu Awards.
This panel was part of the HelioscopePDX Mini Con, March 27th, 2021.
