10: Bevin Lucas: The Comic Fan

Bevin Lucas: Comic Lover

Bevin Lucas got into comics at a young age and ever since they have influenced her artwork. Now, she’s a print-maker at Maine College of Art. Comics have even become a surprising way for her to bond with her businessman dad. But in the world of comics it can be hard to be a female fan. Bevin tells us about her experience of feeling insecure in this stereotypically fan-boy community.

This project was in collaboration with Wolfgang Daniel and Frances Harlow.
