Event Details

The Alliance Française Ottawa invites you to meet JC Deveney, scenarist and co-creator of the exhibition Héro(ïne)s. The artist will come to talk about his exhibition, about the representation of women in comics and to inaugurate his creation at Alliance Française Ottawa.

For nearly 180 years that comics exist, male heroes hold, for the majority, the main role. It is clear that in the crowd of comic characters, feminine figures remains in the minority and are often tied to common stereotypes : women have their place in comics, alongside the hero, ready to help him, or heal him in case of a hard blow. From this statement , Lyon BD and the scenarist JC Deveney invited around twenty authors to imagine and create the fe;ale representation of a comic’s hero of their choice. A real reflection has been initiated around the issue of gender in comics.

Participants : Yan Le Pon (Gold of the Dead), Jean-Yves Ferri (Astérix), Hélène Becquelin (Angry Mum), Florence Dupré La Tour (Cruelle), Jérôme Jouvray (Lincoln), Boulet (Notes), Efix (12 rue Royale et les 7 défis gourmands), Nancy Peña (Les nouvelles aventures du Chat Botté), B-gnet (Santiago), Marie Avril (Confidences à Allah)…

Exhibition made by Lyon BD Organisation and JC Deveney.
