Speakers

Five hundred years ago this year (1521-2021), the Aztec Empire fell to Spanish invaders. But “Aztec” culture still exists and has a huge impact on the world we live in. Our panelists are all creating Aztec-themed projects in comics, video games, animation, and other media:

  • David Bowles, writer and linguist (Clockwork Curandera)
  • Sofia Alexander, animation creator/producer (Onyx Equinox)
  • Guillermo Vizcaino, video game writer/producer (Aztech Forgotten Gods)
  • Henry Barajas, comics creator (Helm Greycastle)
  • Paul Guinan, comics creator (Aztec Empire)

We’ll talk about how Indigenous history and culture influence their stories, and how our understanding of Mesoamerican cultures has evolved. Moderated by writer/editor/educator Anina Bennett (Boilerplate).

Check our linktree for more info on all our amazing panelists!
