Women have been making comics since the beginning, but there was an important story that hadn’t been told: how women changed free expression in comics. CBLDF tells that story in She Changed Comics, out today around the country!
Kickstarter orders are on their way, and CBLDF will have copies of the book at New York Comic Con booth #2258 and GeekGirlCon booth #806 this weekend.
You can also find She Changed Comics at comic shops around the country and on comiXology!
Covering female comics creators from the turn of the 20th century to present day, She Changed Comics profiles more than 60 women who transformed the landscape of free expression and expanded the comics artform. It also examines the plights of women who have been persecuted for expressing themselves through cartoons and features interviews with some of the most influential women working in comics today.
This full-color, 176-page book from Image Comics was a runaway success on Kickstarter earlier this year, where backers funded the project in eight hours and supported several stretch goals, including teaching guides for middle school, high school, and higher education, as well as a nationwide teaching tour.
