Women in Comics – Updates and Updated List

This enormity of what we’ve undertaken is becoming real.  With 105 Women on this list, and emails sent to a third of them asking to answer a couple of quick questions to help with the spotlights… Eeep!

This is going to take a lot of our time, but we’re happy to give it.  Please be patient, and posts will start over the next day or two and hopefully never stop.

If you are on this list and and haven’t received an email from us, we can be reached at girlsreadcomicstoo (at) gmail (dot) com If I have you on facebook, the questions might be coming that way too!

    How about all the women who make comics on the other side of the world? There are tons of female manga and bede creators. You could easily double the size of this list.

    • Dee says:

      Because this blog deals mostly with american/european and western style comics, we are trying to focus on that. Manga and all the associated forms are all great, but they aren’t something we know a lot about and we are hoping to keep it focused on the mediums we do know and love. That being said I know there are quite a few crossover people on the list, and i hope someone does a counterpart to this list somewhere.

    Im a fellow unicorn, and I’ve been lurking for a while now. Just wanted to come out of the woodwork to say I’m really looking forward to this series. I’m always keen to know more about women in the comic book industry.

  3. Roy Swan says:

    I’d like to throw in a few suggestions if I may. First Aline Kaminsky and Joyce Brabner, wives of Robert Crumb and Harvey Pekar but influential in their own right. Also Trina Robbins; her own anthology Wimmen’s Comix was the Womanthology of it’s time. Finally if the list isn’t restricted to women artists and writers in comics, there are Jeannete Kahn, Karen Berger and Shelly Bond with DC.

    I don’t think I saw those names on the list but I might have missed them. In any case, they are all immensely influential women.

    I’d love to see webcomic creator Sandra on here, from long running LGBT friendly series Boy Meets Boy, Friendly Hostility, and Other People’s Business. http://www.otherpeoplesbusiness.net/
