Did you know that comic book colors used to be hand-separated by an army of women in Connecticut? That "benday dots" are named after a real person? Or that there's a technical reason African-American skin tones look wrong in old comics? Geek out on the hidden corners of comics history, from the Golden Age up to today's digital era, and learn about the craft of coloring with color artist Marissa Louise (Amethyst), comics creator Mildred Louis (Astrea's Nexus Studio), researcher and essayist Zoë D. Smith (University of Chicago), and master letterer/former DC production artist Todd Klein (Sandman). Moderated by author Anina Bennett (Boilerplate).

Livestream Q&A following the event: July 25, at 3pm PT on www.twitch.tv/ml_illo
