Co-hosted by Human Resources Los Angeles and New York’s Participant Inc., New York, this online book launch event celebrates Alexandro Segade’s new graphic novel The Context (Primary Information). Reimagining the superhero comic book as “a queer parable of belonging,” that fuses Segade’s lifelong love of the comic book universe with his education and practice in advanced semiotics and lived experiences that prompt social reimaginings. The story’s six characters — Biopower, Cathexis, Barelife, Objector, Drives, and Form — each embodies a concept from critical theory and possesses powers that are as existential and philosophical as they are cosmic.
