COMIQUE CON: Diverse Women Raising Their Voices & Profiles in World of Comics

August 13, 2019

The world of comics has long been one more world ruled by white males -- both as characters and creators.  But that is changing as young women who grew up reading comics featuring female superheroes (such as "shojo" Magna books created in Japan specifically for girls) are looking for adult content they can identify with.  So, they're creating it themselves.  We explored this growing, cultural phenomenon at Comique-Con -- a conference specifically for female and female-identifying illustrators, writers and creators in the comic world.  A world that co-host Monica Doyle knows well.
