Elana Levin

Elana is co-host of the Graphic Policy Radio podcast"where comics and politics meet". She got into comics in Jr. High by stealing her younger brother’s copies of X-Factor. She immediately identified with mutants as a metaphor for oppressed groups and used this parallel to justify her interest in comics to her incredulous friends and relatives. And has been doing so ever since. A trained but not practicing artist, Elana covers comics art and analyzes comics and the industry with a queer and feminist lens. Elana has lead fan activism trainings everywhere from comic cons to activist conferences teaching folks how to use stories and fictional worlds to save the real one, (you know, where we keep our comics collections).
