Comics often address social issues in a very direct way. This year, we've seen comics like Bitch Planet, The Wicked and The Divine and Ms Marvel address issues from both a lighthearted approach and with more serious intent. The 'big name' producers -- Marvel, DC and Image, are all working hard to produce diverse comics and protagonists. Our panelists examine how modern comics are making strides towards representing important social, cultural and political issues.
