I just had a discussion with a nice, but I think very misinformed guy on Twitter, where he said that the reason so few comics are written by women (I guess he doesn’t count alt comics, webcomics, mini comics and manga as ‘comics’) was because women simply are not interested in writing them.
So I am checking here and on Twitter.
If you identify as female, and you have some aspirations, even far-off ones, to make comics of some kind, can you post here and let us know?
I just am curious if there is a genuine paucity of women wanting into the comics creation business.
Yo here! Last month I finally finished a Sherlock fancomic of 236 pages, I’m doing another one and writing a third and fourth one.
Ah! also professional comic book artist here, who helps her editor in writing some of the stories we do too!
You can tell that man to shut up.
I’ve wanted to be involved with comics since I first fell in love with the X-men when I was little. I have two projects in the works.
I’ve wanted to work in comics since I was 9 years old. I’m 28 now. In the past ten years, I’ve written and illustrated close to 3,000 pages of comics. I will do this until I die.
I’ve got a degree in comic. I’ve done hundreds of pages, and I’m in the middle of finalizing the script for a graphic novel with my friend (another lady with a comic degree).
I also do freelance pages and have done colors. So yes. Definitely a lady interested in and making comics.
